Writer Thom Burgess, whose work we have been following for a number of years, has announced a new anthology collection called Early Haunts: A Graphic Novel of Seminal Ghost Stories. This vast volume will collect four spine-tingling tales of the supernatural, so fans won’t want to miss out. Burgess is currently raising funds on Kickstarter in order to publish a lavish hardback edition of the book, and it looks like he’s going to hit his campaign goal in no time.
Each of the individual stories collected in Early Haunts are based on well known folktales, some of which inspired classic horror stories such as Frankenstein and The Ring. Burgess worked with an assortment of talented artists to help bring these stories to life, including David Romero, Bri Neumann, Mike O’Brien, and Brian Coldrick, and as you can see in the gallery below, some of their illustrations are truly terrifying.
The four stories included in the book will be called The House in Athens, The Death Bride, The Wild Huntsman, and The Tale from Dish Mansion, and each story will be proceeded by a detailed introduction describing how it came to be. The Kickstarter campaign also includes various stretch goals, so backers will absolutely be getting their money’s worth. Overall, Early Haunts: A Graphic Novel of Seminal Ghost Stories sounds like it could be one of Burgess’ most ambitious projects to date, and we eagerly await more news of its publication.
