When it was announced in August that Five Ghosts -- from creators Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham -- was becoming an ongoing, it came as welcome news to readers, but probably shouldn't have been much of a surprise. The story of Fabian Gray, an adventurer possessed by the spirits of five literary ghosts -- Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Miyamoto Musashi, and Dracula -- Five Ghosts is a throwback pulp story, if you will, and one that we've been on board with from the beginning.
Originally intended to be a five issue miniseries, issue six of the title, featuring guest artist Garry Brown, arrives in stores next. A stand-alone tale, the issue sees Fabian travel to Japan to aid an ally in the search for the mythical sword Masamune. Image Comics has provided us with a six page preview of the story, which you can view below.
