Description

World-renowned cartoonist Seth returns with three new ghost stories for 2021.

After attending a séance at an acquaintance’s home, a man receives an unexpected job offer from another guest: resident doctor at the prison he directs. But when a prisoner begs to have his cell moved, terrified of what’s behind the next door, the young doctor starts to question his luck.

“I just bought my set of these and they … are … PERFECT. I hope they do these every year.”—Patton Oswalt

“For Seth, this is really a labour of love.” —Peter Robb, Ottawa Citizen
