From The Press Release
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 6, 2023) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at GHOSTLORE #1, the premier issue of a brand new horror series by acclaimed author of The Empty Man and Harrow County, Cullen Bunn, superstar artist Leomacs (Basketful of Heads), colorist Jason Wordie (Abbott, Wasted Space), and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Once & Future)—along with guest artist Brian Hurtt (Manor Black) and colorist Bill Crabtree (BRZRKR)—tell a new kind of ghost story this May.
We’ve all heard of ghost stories…but what ghost stories to the ghost themselves tell?
After a deadly accident, estranged father and daughter Lucas and Harmony Agate can see the dead–an overwhelming amount of them.

But the pastor and his daughter aren’t the only ones with this haunting ability; there are other nearly-deads, some of which have malicious intentions…
