Garth is accidentally sent to the underworld by burned out. modern day ghostbuster Frank Gallows. Frank must travel to the underworld aka Ghostopolis to try and save him. Great characters and a funny story, highly recommended graphic novel for kids. ( )

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. ( )

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.
