“Dead Boy Detectives” has become a flagship Vertigo title in little under a year. Our own Jorge Solis said that volume one “strikes the right balance between charming and frightening.” After being introduced in the pages of one of the best comics ever written, Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman,” the dead boys get their own series with all-new supernatural adventures. The dead boy detectives are consistently charming and horrifying in their own right, and issue #9 proves to be no different.
DEAD BOY DETECTIVES #9
ON SALE 9/24
Empty theaters can be spooky places where the echoes of dead hands forever applaud and the leftover gloom of forgotten tragedies lingers – and nowhere is spookier than the grand, gaudy, gilded Victorian music hall where Charles and Crystal go to investigate his mother’s suspicious death. But will the melodramatic ghosts still haunting those creaky floor boards make a swift exit, revel in a few more moments in the spotlight, or take revenge for being upstaged? If Charles isn’t careful, this could mean curtains for Crystal.
