Join the panelists as they discuss the art of writing Urban Fantasy.

Issue #5 of Dynamite’s Dresden Files: Ghoul, Goblin comic book arrived this past week!

Harry Dresden came to rural Missouri to free the star-crossed Talbot family from the curse that’s nearly wiped out the bloodline. Unfortunately, his only two allies have been fired from the local police force and revealed as a carnivorous ghoul, respectively—oh, and he’s been arrested, leaving the aforementioned Talbots virtually defenseless against the supernatural creatures hunting them. Aside from that, things are great…

JIM BUTCHER’S DRESDEN FILES: GHOUL GOBLIN #5 (OF 6) •  Written by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers • Art by Joseph Cooper • Cover by Ardian Syaf
