Shannon Wheeler returns to the pages of comics’ greatest anthology, Dark Horse Presents, with Villain House. Villain House marks the creation of a new world of villains and villainy from the mind of Eisner Award winner Shannon Wheeler.
The first Villain House story is about two villains, the Pachyderm and the Squid, who break out of prison to go on a crime spree, albeit a short one. The ending is a tragic, below-the-belt plot twist that is more than a little heartbreaking. The second story is about a blind date gone bad involving Satan’s Son. The third story has multiple supervillains meeting up at the house of the Buzzard to plan a bank robbery.
“All the stories drip with irony and plot twists. Characters from one story are picked up in another story so that while each plot is independent there’s an odd overlap. For example, one of Satan’s Son’s henchmen from the second story shows up in the third story to help plan the bank heist,” noted Shannon Wheeler.
