It's Halloween, and you know what that means...
Ghost stories!
And as ghost stories go, Scott Hampton's "The Upturned Stone" ranks as one of the best.
I discovered this story when I used to be an avid reader of Heavy Metal magazine.
That's "Heavy Metal", as in avant garde art and story-telling, not the music genre.
In "The Upturned Stone", the story of childhood innocence well as its loss.
Four boys discover a huge pumpkin growing in a cemetery. They harvest it to take home, where it gets

This is the perfect comic to read during Halloween season. The Upturned Stone follows 4 young boys who each are being haunted by similar dreams. I won't say more than that because the less you know the better, but if you like Stephen King style horror (the kind that features horror alongside small town USA and adolescence) this comic is for you.

Exquisite artwork and a seriously creepy story that is perfect for Halloween,... though I read it a little late,... left an mild impression though perhaps I need to wait longer to see how the story sits with me,... I felt the pacing was a little sketchy, and I never really cared for the characters, but it was mostly good.

Wonderful ghost story that would make a truly spooky film if handled correctly.
I've met Scott Hampton a couple of times and found him to be a prince of a man, truly generous, and kind.
