Hellboy investigates a hidden cellar and discovers his own uncanny connection to the spirits within... a young boy leads friends and family alike into an abandoned house from which no one ever leaves... and an unprecedented fisticuffs ensures between a world traveller and the ancient spirit of an English mansion...

These ghostly stories and more await you within the pages of The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, a collection of original short horror stories by an award-winning line-up of comics' top talent.

Eight uncanny tales of spirit manifestations, apparitions and otherworldly horrors await the brave. Some stories retold as graphic novel strips, others simply using the written word to send a shiver down your spine.

The first outing, Gone, takes something from everyone's childhood and breathes new life into it. Everyone remembers the local derelict haunted house. Well what if someone went in on a dare and never came out?

Hellboy fans will be pleased to see that the second story, Dr. Carp's Experiment, features the horned red monster.

One of the best segments is Spirit Rescue, which is an interview with seance medium L. L. Dreller. At first appearance this seems an odd inclusion, but it works really well and adds that something extra to the collection as a whole.

It might not give you a sleepless night, but this is a very impressive collection of spooky stories.
