Fan-favorite webcomic creator Megan Rose Gedris ( Yu+Me Dream ) crafts a compelling tale of magic, deception, and wonder in this stunningly illustrated graphic novel about the bond between sisters.

Pragmatic engineer Anna works as a psychic in the Samson Brothers Circus, but she doesn't believe in anything supernatural--until her twin sister Kat is murdered and comes back as a very demanding ghost. Sharing a room with her sister was hard, but now they're sharing a body while trying to identify the killer. With few leads, a troupe full of secretive folk, and strange paranormal occurrences popping up around the circus, solving the case seems near impossible. But the murderer in their midst may be the least of their problems...

I have always been fascinated by stories of traveling circuses and the families formed there. This graphic novel series is no exception. The cast of characters, including a ghost sister, and their interwoven stories and mystery are intriguing. Anxiously awaiting volume 3!

An oddly charming murder mystery following a scientifically-minded circus fortune-teller investigating the murder of her twin sister the knife-thrower, while unsettled by being haunted by the ghost of the murder victim, who is clearly withholding important details. An interesting investigation into the friendships, rivalries, and histories of the very diverse cast of circus members--and the relationship between the very different twin sisters--with that light touch of the supernatural to keep things fun.
By the end of volume 1, I still don't know who the murderer is, though I do see at least one thing about the dead sister that the living one hasn't figured out yet. I'll definitely pick up the next volume.
