'Five Ghosts Volume 3: Monsters and Men' treads into more fictional character territory, and delivers up a rip-roaring pulp adventure.
Fabian is on his way to tracking down his friend Sebastian in Romania with the help of the five ghosts he has been inhabited with. And he'll need their help because getting to where Sebastian is trapped, he comes across some super powerful men who seem more like animals. When famous vampire hunter Van Helsing shows up and Fabian is trapped in vampire mode with the ghost of Dracula, he might be in over his head. Can he fend off Van Helsing and rescue Sebastian?
Also included is a bonus short and another issue length story. I love the action aspect of this and it's a pretty interesting concept. The script by Frank J. Barbiere definitely feels like an idea out of the 1950s or further back. Fabian feels a bit like a Doc Savage or Avenger or Shadow type character. The art by Chris Mooneyham just moves on the page with interesting angles and action shots.
