Dave Gibbons is best known for collaborating with Alan Moore on WATCHMEN, one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time. His most recent complete work is the black and white original graphic novel from Vertigo, THE ORIGINALS, which he scripted as well as drew. The work is set in the near future, but draws heavily on the imagery of the Mods and Rockers of the 1960s.
These stories from THE UNEXPECTED #1 and GHOSTS #1 spotlight a space heist on a ghost ship, a spirit who wants to play synthesizer in a techno band, a ghost-for-hire haunting agency and much more!
