Snyder, Scott: Night of the Ghoul

A dazzling work of horror, intercutting between the present day and the story of a lost film.

Horror masters Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Wytches) and Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie) collaborate for the first time!


This graphic novel is a bold and bloody reimagining of horror monsters that celebrates classic creature features, while creating an unsettling and contemporary new kind of horror story.

Horror film obsessive Forest Inman stumbles across a seemingly forgotten canister of old footage.  Thinking he has found the legendary unreleased would-be classic 1936 film “Night of the Ghoul,” he sets off on a dark odyssey to the California desert, where he’s warned that the film’s ghoul is far more than a work of fiction: it’s a very real monster who plans to kill him.

It was said to be the greatest horror movie in cinematic history. Shot in 1936, “Night of the Ghoul” by writer/director T.F. Merritt was meant to sit beside “Frankenstein” and “Dracula” as an instant classic…But the legendary film never made it to the silver screen. Just before editing was finished, a mysterious studio fire destroyed the footage and killed the cast and crew celebrating at wrap-party.

Rumors of the doomed film’s greatness persist to this day, but no footage from it was ever recovered…until now. Forest Inman is a horror film obsessive who digitizes old films for the famed Aurora movie studio. When Forest stumbles across a seemingly forgotten canister of footage, he just might have discovered the remnants of the lost classic “Night of the Ghoul.”

This discovery sends Forest on a dark odyssey to the California desert, where he’s warned by a mysterious old man that the film’s ghoul is far more than a work of fiction: it’s a very real monster who plans to kill him.

Collects Night of the Ghoul #1–#3 (originally published by Comixology and republished as single issues by Dark Horse).
