Last Chance For Some Daemonic Comic Horror Before Christmas!

Eagle - 11th September 1982 - Cover

Know a British comics fan? Still looking for that elusive present to sate the needs of such a strange beast?

Well, good news. There’s still  time to buy the excellent collected The House of Daemon in time for Christmas, published earlier this year by Hibernia Comics.

Published in Eagle between September 1982 and February 1983, The House of Daemon is superbly written by Alan Grant and John Wagner, and incomparable art from Spanish master Jose Ortiz. Miss this collection at your peril!

The collection includes an introduction by ace artist Mike Perkins and, as I said earlier in the year, the Hibernia team have done their usual stonking job restoring the strip for this collection.

In the story, Elliot Aldrich has built a dream house – but that dream turned into a nightmare! Elliot with his wife Cassandra and a few brave companions are trapped in Daemon’s twisted house of terror, a house that Daemon will never let them escape from…

It’s a truly chilling British horror comics classic, which moves swiftly from what appears to be a story about a haunted house into the world of nightmare as the Aldrich’s and their allies are dropped into a terrifying dreamscape that encompasses terrifying goblin-like characters, future war and bemused police.

Hibernia tell us any orders received by 18th December 2015 should be delivered in time in Ireland, the UK and Europe. Orders received after the 18th will not be processed until after Christmas.
