MORE GHOST STORIES FROM M.R. JAMES GET THE GRAPHIC NOVEL TREATMENT


SelfMadeHero are bringing more ghost stories from M.R. James to life in the second volume of Ghost Stories Of An Antiquary. The second volume brings to life four stories re-imagined by writers John Reppion and Leah Moore, both who worked on Ghost Stories Of An Antiquary Volume 1 (review here).

Admired by writers from H.P. Lovecraft to Ruth Rendell, M.R. James is the acknowledged master of the English ghost story. Disdaining gore in favour of atmosphere and suggestion, his enduring supernatural tales are masterpieces of understated horror.


Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Volume 2 collects graphic retellings of four uncanny tales by the renowned medievalist and writer. the four stories are: Number 13, Count Magnus, The Treasure Of Abbot Thomas, and Oh, Whistle And I will Come To You, My Lad.

At once true to their source and powerfully reimagined for a visual medium, Leah Moore and John Reppion’s subtly crafted adaptations give a new lease of life to these classic stories of watchful guardians, architectural puzzles and ill-advised academic exploration.

Ghost Stories Of An Antiquary Volume 2 is set to come out on 12th October 2017
