And we're back with the final installment from GHOSTS this week!


Just in time for Halloween, Vertigo has compiled a slew of creepy stories that are primed to get you in the spirit! GHOSTS is an anthology of short stories showcasing both major talents and newcomers in the industry. Arriving in stores on October 31, this collection features a space heist on a ghost ship, a spirit who wants to play synthesizer in a techno band and other dark and twisted tales best read under the sheets with a flashlight.


You’ve seen several pieces of art this week from stories in the collection. Well, we’re excited to close out the week with a spotlight on “Ghost for Hire.” Making his Vertigo debut, acclaimed writer Geoff Johns (JUSTICE LEAGUE, AQUAMAN, GREEN LANTERN, BATMAN: Earth One) joins artist Jeff Lemire (SWEET TOOTH, ANIMAL MAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK) for a story about a ghost-for-hire haunting agency.

Here's what Lemire had to say about working on this story with Geoff Johns, "It was a real thrill for me to work with Geoff. I've written with him before, but to get to draw for him was really special. To be honest, I wasn't sure what kind of ghost story Geoff would deliver and I was pleasantly surprised with "Ghost For Hire." It's whimsical and fun and it has heart. When Geoff said he wanted to do a story like all the old Abbot and Costello movies he watched as a kid it really clicked for me!"



Now, take look at the awesome art by Lemire below.
