“ M.R. James' chilling, atmospheric ghost stories - in graphic novel form ”

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, Volume 2 collects graphic retellings of four uncanny 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 watchful guardians, architectural puzzles and ill-advised academic exploration.
