I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started reading this, but I am liking it a LOT. You have this cute, nerdy character who is socially awkward and doesn't get along well with people, but it's not because she's a bad person, she's just more introverted and is studying to be a doctor. This was definitely a character I could relate with, and I think that is one reason I liked this book so much.

The storyline itself is also interesting, though it does leave some questions unanswered. But that

This is a fun story about a young college girl named Bree and her run in with some supernatural teen ghosts. The author, Laura has wonderful skills in weaving suspense in each of her chapters. I was inspired by her charming art and memorable characters. This series is ongoing and I can't wait to see what the next chapter will be. ...more

In Polterguys, Bree is a nerdy college student who is studying to become a doctor, but is a bit awkward when it comes to relationships. When she moves into a house haunted by five guy ghosts, she is a bit put off, but soon learns to live with her new roommates. When a strange man comes out of nowhere and tries to take them through a portal, she promises to help them resolve whatever is keeping them there.

Polterguys is a black-and-white, manga-style "story of a nerdy college girl befriending a bunch of ghost guys and solving their unfinished businesses." The nerdy girl is named Bree, the college town is a take on Berkeley, and the guys are all hiding in an old rental house for reasons that become clear as the story progresses. First off, let me say that this is a super-professional-looking manga comic, one that I would not have been surprised to read in Shonen Jump.

The art is excellent and the wr
This graphic novel is the story of awkward and nerdy Bree, a new college student, who finds herself living alone in an old house. She's never really fit in, she was always more interested in her studies and had a hard time relating to the other kids. She thinks college will be different, though - a place where everyone is there to learn. Unfortunately for Bree, making friends in college has been just as difficult as it was before. After going through several roommates, Bree scores a room in an o ...more

I LOVE POLTERGUYS!!! Smart, funny, and so so cute. Drawn with loving attention to both characters and story, which alone would steal your heart, but together--whoof. I keep checking to see when the next one might be coming out. Can't wait to get my hands on the sequel to this bad boy! <3 ...more
