The House of Shadows was an old cottage on the outskirts of New York City that was rumored to be haunted. When a TV reporter entered the house to investigate, he was swallowed by the mystical forces of the house. Doctor Strange entered the house to free the journalist and learned that the house was a visitor from a shadow world that borders a pocket realm near limbo, come to Earth to observe humanity, and banished the house to its home dimension.[1]

At some point, the entity made its way back to Earth, and was encountered by ROM the Spaceknight, Steve Jackson, and Brandy Clark.[2] While on the run from the forces of the Dire Wraiths, the trio entered an abandoned house, which then tried to carry off Steve and Brandy. Dr. Strange contacted ROM via a dream, and tells ROM the true nature of the house. Using this knowledge, ROM used his Neutralizer to cast the entity to Limbo.

Once more the entity made its way back to Earth, this time taking the shape of the top floor of a condominium. The disappearances of the building's residents caught the attention of Dr. Strange, who recognized the patterns of the entity. Strange used the opportunity to test his disciple Rintrah. Rintrah used the same methods as his teacher, and cast the entity back to its realm once again.[3]

Digger eventually put the house up for sale.[4]
