Synopsis for "Room and Boredom (Part I) - The First Drink Is On the House"

After sharing his afternoon tea with brother Abel at the House of Secrets (and naturally killing him in the process, as he is wont to do), Cain returns to the locale of his own abode the House of Mystery. Walking across the cemetery path however, he is shocked to discover that the House of Mystery is missing!

Destination Unknown: The House of Mystery has now become a bar and grill. Its occupants consist of a hodgepodge of denizens from various locales and eras. Five notable guests of the manor begin to entertain the room with tales of their life.

Harry tells Hungry Sally that she must pay off her tab with a story so she narrates how she was married to a man-sized fly, impregnated in a graveyard, and when the maggots burst from her corpse she regretted that she was a poor mother, aloof to her children. (The reader sees all this as visuals. The narration is of a seemingly ordinary marriage relation.) Hungry Sally is depicted as having no back, so that everything she puts into her mouth falls into a slop bucket positioned under her stool.

The issue ends with Fig's arrival at the House of Mystery.
