This is a graphic novel which traces the story of the boy Nobody “Bod” Owens who is adopted and raised by the supernatural occupants of a graveyard after his family is brutally murdered.
The beauty of the story told in the novel is that none of the characters react in a way one would expect them to. Having found ghosts in a graveyard, Bod does not run away screaming. Moreover, the ghosts aren’t scary monsters, instead they are sympathetic to Bod’s predicament and even agree to help raise him.
