Pieces of a man's life linger on in humanoid form after his death in Brandon Graham's story "The Speaker" from Dark Horse Presents #7. The man's voice had disappeared long before his demise, but returns after hearing word and heads to the man's empty apartment to sort through what remains. He encounters the man's secrets hiding under tables, his doubts arriving in car like a gang of toughs ready for trouble, and the man's shadow, a shapely woman in a dress smoking a cigarette on the roof.

We've got exclusive preview pages from Dark Horse Comics below from DHP #7, which is scheduled to hit stores December 21.
