Lou Lebeuf sits on his crumbling farm in Essex County, Ontario, remembering the past. He remembers his brother, Vince. He remembers their year together playing semi-pro hockey in Toronto. And he remembers the betrayal that separated them for the next twenty years of their lives.


Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present an excerpt from Ghost Stories, the second in Jeff Lemire's touching, profoundly human series of graphic novels Essex County, on sale now from Top Shelf Productions.
