short story – Ghostly Hauntings
These are stories that expand upon the novel “Souls 4 Supper.”
You’re speaking with your grandfather. It seems like forever since you have last seen him, but your conversation reminds you of being a child again. Then it dawns on you. Your grandfather has been dead for years. As you focus your eyes on him, he vanishes. His absence forces a feeling of dread as your hair stands on end.

Artist Story Details:
Joe Parisi returns as a sCrypt veteran artist, and this time, he is illustrating a story about a haunted book where the pages tell the tale of its reader.
Dan Pipito goes back to his own childhood in this issue, and helps to tell the tale of old man Butsy, who murdered his wife. Her spirit will not be happy.
Kelly Swann brilliantly illustrates the story of Djinn, a spirit trapped within a lamp, whose magical wishes are not all that the wisher desires.
Michael A Garard Jr is a newcomer whose art is featured in two stories. The first of which tells about the lost souls and their connection to heaven and hell. The other story takes the main character to a graveyard to investigate why the spirits there are so angry.
Kristie Vanderzee returns by showing us the ghost town of Atlantis after it has risen from the depths of the ocean.
Jacob Greenawalt illustrates a sequel story from issue #1. Detective Hwong has had a near death experience leaving her with the ability to see the ghosts of the dead.
Asher Humm had a one issue hiatus, but is back to show just how close to the spirit realm we travel while sleeping.
Mao Estheim comes at us from Japan with her Mangaesque style in a haunting that may just be a hoax after all.
Muhammad Nurul resides in Great Britain, but this Indonesian native draws the story of a child whose imaginary friend is more than just in his mind.
