If you dig a good spooky story, then you've got to check out the new graphic novel trilogy Cemetery Girl by Charlaine Harris and Christopher Golden, illustrated by Don Kramer. Cemetery Girl Book One: The Pretenders was released today, January 7th. Edited to add: It hit #1 on the New York Times Graphic Novel list! Here's the premise:
She calls herself Calexa Rose Dunhill – names taken from the grim surroundings where she awoke, bruised and bloody, with no memory of who she is, how she got there, or who left her for dead.
She has made the cemetery her home, living in a crypt and avoiding human contact. But Calexa can’t hide from the dead – and because she can see spirits, they can’t hide from her.
Then one night, Calexa spies a group of teenagers vandalizing a grave – and watches in horror as they commit murder. As the victim’s spirit rises from her body, it flows into Calexa, overwhelming her mind with visions and memories not her own. Now Calexa must make a decision: continue to hide to protect herself – or come forward to bring justice to the sad spirit who has reached out to her for help...
