Ghost Story Club Will BOO-oost Your Spirits
Before Harry Potter unleashed his magnificent fantasy upon an unsuspecting world, there was Ghost Story Club!
One of America's "wackiest" newspaper comic strips, Ghost Story Club haunted newspapers around the world from 1995-1998. Now — back by popular demand — are updated digitally remastered encore presentations of this delightfuly spooky, oft-hilarious and sometimes satirical feature! Witches, creatures, magic — and expecially ghosts — appeared on comics pages from New York City to Freeport, Illinois to Hong Kong way back when J.K. Rowling was probably still telling bedtime stories.
Every Day was Halloween for the Ghost Story Club
The daily newspaper comic strip Ghost Story Club was drawn by Dick 'Captain Cartoon' Kulpa and written by world-renowned ghost stories author Allan Zullo.
Originally conceived as a "teach kids to read" feature, GSC aimed for eight-year-olds and up.
Distributed by Tribune Media Services, Inc., (TMS), the horror-humor-fantasy feature appeared daily and Sundays in newspapers around the world, including the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, New York Daily News, Minneapolist Star-Tribune and others.
GSC was an actual interactive "club", and thousands of young readers signed up for free memberships, receiving free premiums and a monthly Ghost Story Club newsletter.
GSC also boasted its own interactive website, one of the Web's first.
GSC pioneered a number of other "firsts," including 7-day stories and
photoshop image enhancement.
