V for Vertigo, Episode 91: Throat of Mystery

I know I normally say, “It’s going to be a short show,” but this time it actually is. My throat’s sore from lack of sleep and playing Def Jam Rapstar. That means less bad singing and impersonations. I do manage to squeeze in a few minutes talking about my new favorite game, Game Dev Story.

Since I’m a fair man, I do give the House of Mystery series another chance. I cover House of Mystery: Love Stories for Dead People (Matthew Sturges, Luca Rossi). If only House of Mystery was two separate books, I would thoroughly enjoy one.
