‘The Dollhouse Family #5’ (review)

Written by M.R. Carey
Art by Peter Gross
Published by DC Comics


This issue cements this series as the best of the Hill House line over at DC.

This has been a solid book by a great writer and a good artist. I should commend inker Vince Locke doing a great job on finishing the art by artist Peter Gross.

It is a book full of twists and turns and I am loving every second of it.

The issue starts off with Alice in the Chiswick Police Station. Her daughter is missing and she is just trying to get some help. But the police don’t believe her. She then drives away with Jake as she is now back to square one.

Alice and Jake then do a bit of investigating.

They are trying to figure out how to combat the Dollhouse and get Alice’s daughter back. This might prove to be a harder feat than they think as the denizens of the Dollhouse are ready for them. We get to see just how ready in a brief but effective scene.

Alice eventually breaks into the house but is caught by the police.

She goes to jail, but finds a way out. This part of the book is spiritual and pretty great. Alice makes her way to the Dollhouse. She meets up with a cat and this leads into a nice little cliffhanger.

Carey is writing one hell of a strong story here. He swings for the fences throughout and really has put together a great story with well developed characters. I can’t wait to see how he finishes this.

I am sad this will be ending. It is very well done.
