The House of Whispers #18 Review

Hopkinson has proceeded with such a thrilling story that Stanton just knocks out of the park.

For people who are of color, who are disabled, who have ever faced difficulty, Nalo Hopkinson is a treasured gem you will find within your lifetime. While you don’t need to identify with all three statements, Hopkinson has always excelled in putting these displaced people into a world that gives them their own life.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Here, Hopkinson manages to weave in how these characters live within their own means. She easily allows us as readers to follow characters from varied story plots. In a singular issue, she bleeds in romance, horror, and wonderful fantastical elements. There is such a great blend of the genre that Hopkinson lets readers live within these worlds through her separate plotlines. With Dan Watters controlling the overall reins, this series manages to amplify Hopkinson having her own dreaming.

Dominike “Domo” Stanton turns in incredible artwork in this issue. Starting with these simplistic, cartoonish figures, the way the story manages to flex and display multiple art styles is amazing. Stanton does a great job juggling multiple narratives and giving them all their own unique flair for how their stories are told. The way Hopkinson juggles genre is the way Stanton juggles visuals: masterful and wholly unpredictable. In earnest, the way this series excels is by the simple fact that no one can really pigeonhole these creators. All of us are thankful for this. It is an exciting execution, and a thrill to be reading this series. Hopkinson has proceeded with such a thrilling story that Stanton just knocks out of the park.

Beautiful artwork.
Masterful writing.
One plot felt like it didn't go anywhere, but was definitely something that would read better within a trade.
