Nanjing: The Burning City tells the brutal tale of the Imperial Japanese Army seizing Nanjing. Through the dust of the bombed buildings, screams echo off the rubble.

In House of Penance #2, the mysterious horrors of the Winchester Estate continue to produce atmospheric chills and deliver incredibly well-paced horror in a comic that’s ripe with historical interest.
