House of Whispers Vol. 2: Ananse



The pandemic is spreading, and Erzulie is calling upon all her distant contacts to aid her in stopping Shakpana and his infection.

She may be the goddess of love and beauty, but for Voodoo deity Erzulie things are getting uglier by the minute.

As a magical epidemic rages, Erzulie's legendary House of Dahomey has been stranded on the shores of the Dreaming, leaving the soulless bodies of the plague's victims to roam the Earth. And all the while, Shakpana—god of pox, plague, and pestilence—grows stronger.

It's enough to confound even the most experienced of Loas. So to help her untangle the threads of her own history, Erzulie turns to Ananse, the spider-god of stories. But Ananse is more twisted than any of his tales, and he has his sights set on the juiciest prize of all.

Now Erzulie and her sister-selves—each more powerful and terrible than the last—must fight for the fate of the world against two of the most infamous immortals in existence. It's their biggest gamble yet—and when the stakes are this high, the house doesn't always win.

The acclaimed creative team of Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, Midnight Robber), Dan Watters (Coffin Bound, The Shadow), and Dominike "DOMO" Stanton (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) take Erzulie's mythical houseboat deep into the uncharted waters of New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's fantastical Sandman Universe in House of Whispers Vol. 2: Ananse! Collects House of Whispers #7-12.
