In Outlook: Grim sassy-pants Wren makes an unfortunate challenge and unwittingly invites a host of ghosts and ghouls into her home. Having beasties in her bathtub and a portal to the other side in her undies drawer was bad enough, but when they threaten her precious pet snail Ted, Wren must enlist the help of the eccentric Madame Mina and the recently undead Gregorey. The sixth and final issue of Outlook: Grim will be released in August, and the series will be collected into a trade paperback in January 2005.
The Ghouly Boys tells the story of five young misfits -- Zombie Boy, Fat Bat, Puppy, Sammy Hain Boogie and Fishboy -- who search for their place in the world and discover friendship along the way. Issue two will be released in July.
