Vanishing children. Spectral artworks. Vengeance from beyond the grave.
Admired by writers from H.P. Lovecraft to Ruth Rendell, M.R. James is the acknowledged master of the English ghost story. Disdaining gore in favour of atmosphere and suggestion, his enduring supernatural tales are masterpieces of understated horror. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 1 collects graphic retellings of four spine-chilling tales by the renowned medievalist and writer. At once true to their source and powerfully reimagined for a visual medium, Leah Moore and John Reppion’s subtly crafted adaptations give a new lease of life to these classic stories of vanishing children, spectral works of art and vengeance from beyond the grave.
Artwork is provided by Aneke, Kit Buss, Fouad Mezher and Alisdair Wood.
