“Albatross Funnybooks and Dark Horse Comics invite readers to join an arcane adventure that brings back the action-packed thrills of Saturday morning cartoons, blended with supernatural chills!

Die-hard MegaGhost believers will need to keep their eyes peeled for even more MegaGhost, coming soon!”

The series synopsis:

“The MegaGhost Saturday morning cartoon was legendary, if short-lived, and in what can only be described as the most fantastic case of the Mandela Effect EVER, the only two people on Earth who seem to remember it are Soria and Kendall. Lucky for us, they’ve joined forces to dig deep into their memories of MegaGhost and reanimate it’s bonkers combination of kaiju battles and paranormal mysteries, now presented in this all-new action-packed adventure. Did MegaGhost exist? Or is it just a figment of their fevered imaginations? Either way, readers get a thrilling, all-ages comic that pairs perfectly with a bowl of sugary cereal and fights over the remote.

“In MegaGhost: Junior occultist Martin Magus lives in the perpetually possessed city of Dunwich Heights, where things couldn’t possibly get any weirder. That is, until he discovers a cursed ring that allows him to summon three spirits who can combine to form MEGAGHOST, a giant supernatural robot sworn to defend the world against magical monsters and otherworldly creeps that go SMASH in the night!”

First published in single issues between 2018 and 2019, the first 152-page MegaGhost collection saw print in October 2020 – published by Eric Powell’s Albatross Funnybooks. In 2022 Powell brought his independent imprint to Dark Horse, and this new edition – featuring previously uncollected content – is the first for the series under this dual umbrella.
