Item DescriptionGHOSTS was a horror comics anthology series published by DC Comics for 112 issues from 1971 to 1982. Its tagline was "True Tales of the Weird and Supernatural". GHOSTS was one of several horror-mystery-suspense DC Comics series launched in 1971, along with _The Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love_ and _The Sinister House of Secret Love_. It was never a fan favorite but it was a disproportionately good seller.
Each issue of GHOSTS carried multiple stories of the supernatural. Starting with issue #37 (1975), a new regular feature was added - at the front of each book a page of single panel depictions of alleged ghost sightings were listed in the fashion of Robert L. Ripley's _Believe it or Not!_ features.
Two issues prior to this one, GHOSTS #95 introduced the series' first continuing-character feature, "DR. 13 - THE GHOST-BREAKER." The character encountered the SPECTRE in a three-issue storyline of which this is the first!
GHOSTS #97, inside that great cover by Jim Aparo, contains 5 complete stories, with the DR. THIRTEEN/ SPECTRE tale being the capper. In it, after debunking a swami using his usual tools of science and skepticism, DOCTOR THIRTEEN and several others are held hostage by the Peoples Freedom Army. When the SPECTRE frees them by killing the hostage takers, DOCTOR THIRTEEN vows to hunt down the SPECTRE and end his reign of vengeance!
This is a good-looking copy, with a strong binding, supple pages, glossy covers, minimal toning, and no tears, stress lines, or pieces missing. We grade it a solid 8.0 VF. For this grade, for this issue, Overstreet offers a value of $10 . . . but we're offering it at just $6 . . with our customary L•O•W shipping!
