House of Mystery #176

House of Mystery #176 (On Sale: July 9, 1968) has another fairly spooky cover by Neal Adams and the Adams' kids are back!

Inside we begin with a one-page introduction featuring Cain, which DC says is written and drawn by Joe Orlando, though the art looks more like Jerry Grandenetti to me. The first story is "The House of No Return" a reprint from House of Mystery #131 drawn by Sid Greene.

That is followed by a Page 13 written by Joe Orlando and drawn by Sergio Aragones and a three-page Cain's Game Room by Sergio Aragones. Lastly we have "The Roots of Evil" by Marv Wolfman and Jack Sparling. This is Wolfman's first full script for DC and centered around lost love, revenge, crazed scientists and thinking plants. It and the entire book was reprinted in Showcase Presents: The House of Mystery Vol. 1 TPB.
