FIVE GHOSTS is an original adventure comic book created by Frank J. Barbiere (Dark Horse Comics, Arcana Studio) and Chris Mooneyham.

SYNOPSIS

Five Ghosts follows the story of Fabian Gray, an infamous 1930’s treasure hunter who makes a living seeking out rare items for private clients. After an encounter with a strange artifact known as “the dreamstone,” Fabian finds himself possessed by five literary ghosts (Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Musashi, and Dracula) and is granted access to their unique abilities.  These powers have come at a price, however: the dreamstone consumed the soul of Fabian’s closest ally, his twin sister, and has left her in a lifeless coma.  Fabian now tirelessly travels the globe searching for a “cure” for her condition while trying to control his own ghostly affliction.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

Five Ghosts is a new mini-series from creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham.  At its core the project is an exciting 30's period piece/adventure story with a strong literary/mythological influence.  Paired with an exciting visual style reminiscent of classic comics, the book is a passion project that will certainly turn heads.  Think INDIANA JONES meets THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, and you'll be on the right track.

THE PLAN

We are already knee-deep in the production of Five Ghosts, but alas creating comics is not free.  Using the money from this Kickstarter, we will finish the 32 page debut issue of Five Ghosts and keep the ball rolling from there.  We are hoping to self-publish the series and get it directly in the hands of fans and retailers who are interested.
