There is an awful lot going on in this graphic novel. Down-on-his-luck ghost investigator, ghost ex-girlfriend trapped in land of living, boy trapped in land of dead by investigator, underground resistance to overlord of land of dead, living have "ghost" powers in land of dead. Good effort. It seems like it could be a multi-volume production to further explain events. ( )

Great graphic novel! It's touching and a bit creepy. I would definitely reccomend! It held my attention and I couldn't wait to see how it ended. ( )

Classic TenNapel art -the story of a boy who accidentally get sucked alive into the afterlife, and the adventures that follow. ( )
  blurble | Jun 1, 2014 |
Garth Hale gets in the way of a ghost capture and winds up in the afterlife, which was built by a legendary figure called Joe, but is now run by a cruel and manipulative man called Vaugner. Since Garth's already dying of an unnamed disease, he doesn't see the rush in getting back home. It's going to take his grandfather's ghost, an undead, untameable horse, and a hapless human ghost-hunter to get him back home--and maybe save Ghostopolis along the way.

The ending was a little too neat, but the story is engaging and fast-moving, and the full-color art is good. Occasional bursts of lowbrow humor (e.g., the boogeyman is picking his nose) lighten the otherwise grim story. Recommended for junior high or high school students. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545210283, Paperback)

A page-turning adventure of a boy's journey to the land of ghosts and back.

Imagine Garth Hale's surprise when he's accidentally zapped to the spirit world by Frank Gallows, a washed-out ghost wrangler. Suddenly Garth finds he has powers the ghosts don't have, and he's stuck in a world run by the evil ruler of Ghostopolis, who would use Garth's newfound abilities to rule the ghostly kingdom. When Garth meets Cecil, his grandfather's ghost, the two search for a way to get Garth back home, and nearly lose hope until Frank Gallows shows up to fix his mistake.
