Ever wonder what you would do if you saw a ghost? What if you saw five ghosts? If freaking out is the top of your list, then Image Comics might want to go for another reaction to five ghosts. That's why they're set to publish Five Ghosts: Special #1 on March 25, 2015, bringing together Frank J. Barbiere and S.M. Vidaurri on a special Fabian Gray backstory. It's is an oversized issue that also features an all-new story from Barbiere and artist Jamie Jones. This special backup features Fabian Gray in an unforgettable literary heist that readers won’t want to miss.
“I’m very excited to present readers with a deeper look at the mythology of Five Ghosts,” said Barbiere. “We’ve spent a lot of time building this world and it’s an amazing opportunity to see just how far back our story goes. S.M. Vidaurri has graced many of our covers with his wonderful art and it’s truly our honor to have him painting a full length story. S.M is a fantastic talent and has put together a great story that will resonate with Five Ghosts fans old and new.”
Five Ghosts: Special #1 features a full-length story written and painted by Vidaurri that explores the history of The Dreamstone—a magical relic that gives Fabian Gray his ghostly powers—and introduces us to a brave medieval knight named Emma. The story also features demons, wizards, a bold new villain with supernatural powers, and some famous literary figures making surprise appearances. Five Ghosts: Special #1 (Diamond Code JAN150579) hits shelves on March 25.
