Comment: Right off there is something odd. This is supposed to be amazing <u>ghost</u> stories, but the cover shows some kind of swamp monsters. The Death Dolls: First, the story has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with ghosts. Second, the bad guy isn't caught. Third, the ending of the story is not satisfactory. The Devil from the Deep: Two guys are out fishing. They catch a mermaid. One of the two guys is totally entranced by her. It turns out she's a cannibalistic monster. Again, a story that has absolutely nothing at all to do with ghosts. Ghosts-With a Sense of Humor (text): This is a factual explanation (acceptable for what was known at the time) about poltergeists and their behavior, including one quite humorous one. An Eye for An Eye: The head surgeon of a hospital has developed a drinking problem. He screws up, as expected, and payback proves ultra nasty. Again, though, not a trace of a ghost anywhere. Dream Girl: A musician has been missing. He visited an odd shop where there was a woman who was like a statue but supposedly alive. Things go very wrong for him, of course. Again, no ghosts. The Pit and the Pendulum: Poe's story. Again, no ghosts. Ok. Why name a comic using the word 'ghost' in the title and have absolutely nothing at all anywhere having to do with ghosts except for one text entry? It makes no sense. The stories themselves are not all that great, either.
