Press Release:

FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED STRICTLY TO THIS EVENT!

Folks — we’re proud to announce this signing for what is sure to be one of the most popular new IMAGE COMICS titles to release this year. The artwork, the storytelling, the premise.. it’s all top notch; we got the same kind of goosebumps reading the previews of this one that we did when we first thumbed through books like PETER PANZERFAUST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, REVIVAL and BEDLAM. This fantastic new series from rising stars FRANK J. BARBIERE & CHRIS MOONEYHAM kicks off a bold new era of PULP ADVENTURE COMICS!

After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.

Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!

Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There’s the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There’s the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that’s not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There’s the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.

Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.

We’ll be having a very special release party signing with both Frank and Chris on Saturday May 25th, which is the week that the third issue of FIVE GHOSTS arrives.

Make sure to snag your copies of issues 1 & 2, when the series begins in March, so you can bring them by to get signed by Frank & Chris this May!
