The Born with the Dead wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 06/27/13 04:51AM View full history

A supernatural detective thriller unfolds in a standalone issue illustrated by Dean Ormston (THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE DEATH), with layouts by Warren Pleece. Elaine Belloc is a typical British schoolgirl, except that she can conjure, speak to the dead and see both the past and the future. When her best friend Mona is murdered, Elaine and Mona's ghost set out to find out why: but the killer comes hunting the hunters, and Elaine's only hope for survival is the devil himself.

In this issue we meet a young girl named Elaine Belloc, although she is far from ordinary, she communicates with the dead spirits of her grandmothers and can see the ghost of her murdered friend. Going on a quest to learn the identity of her friend's murderer she finds she may have bitten off more than she can chew, but wait! Someone is coming to her rescue, none other than the Devil himself!
