Perhaps the recent news that the series will be an ongoing series start in October will peak your interest even more. It should, which means will get even more of the goodness that comes from the minds of Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham.
“Both Chris and I, as well as the whole Five Ghosts team, were amazed by the fantastic reception to our first few issues.” said writer Barbiere, who hopes to excavate more of the world of FIVE GHOSTS as the series continues, “We certainly have a lot of stories to tell in this universe and are very excited to have the opportunity to tell them in an ongoing series.”
Five Ghosts: The Haunting of Fabian Gray #6 follows the story of infamous treasure hunter Fabian Gray, who, after being bewitched by the mysterious power of "The Dreamstone," must battle the unwieldy power of five archetypal ghosts that both possess and guide him. Lost in forgotten cities, Fabian faces enemy shadows in a mesmerizing series riddled with literary allusions. The sixth issue will borrow the talents of guest artist Garry Brown to reveal the next chapter of Fabian's story.
Barbiere says, “We're also excited to have our good friend Garry Brown contributing some amazing art to the series for issue six; Garry's a fantastic artist and we think our readers will enjoy his take on the Five Ghosts universe!”
