GhostopolisGhostopolis by Doug TenNapel
Paperback, 272 pages

Garth is accidentally zapped into the ghost world by a ghost hunter chasing a horse. Garth, who is still alive, has amazing powers. Because of these powers, he is hunted by Vaugner, the ruler of Ghostopolis. The guy who accidentally sent Garth to Ghostopolis comes to Garth’s rescue.
The story reminds me a little of The Wizard of Oz (and Garth’s last name is Hale), where the protagonist goes to another world and has to save it to get home. I’m not complaining. I love the Wizard of Oz, and this story is fantastic both in story and visually.
