Someplace Strange contains a story about 2 kids that want to destroy the Boogie Man. In the start of their pilgrimage (around the block), they find a misfit girl that enters (involuntary) in the adventure. Suddenly, it turns into a Stephen King-like story.

Though the story is not so well developed, the art by John Bolton is very good and, even after 20 years, it is not dated. ( )
