Ghosts is a horror comics anthology series published by DC Comics for 112 issues from September-October 1971 to May 1982. Its tagline was “True Tales of the Weird and Supernatural” (December 1978), changed to “New Tales of the Weird and Supernatural” , “as of # 75 (April 1979), and dropped after # 104 (September 1981).
The first issue was written entirely by Leo Dorfman . To avoid having it seems like a single writer was monopolizing the comic, editor Murray Boltinoff had Dorfman uses the pseudonyms “Geoff Brown” (Dorfman’s was named “Geoff” and his wife’s maiden name was “Brown”) and “David George”. 
Ghosts was one of several horror-mystery-suspense DC Comics series. According to DC Comics writer and executive Paul Levitz , Ghosts “was not a favorite fan (then or in retrospect), it was a disproportionately good seller.”  Nick Cardy was the cover artist for Ghosts for issues # 1-6, 8-15, and 17-36. 
Each issue of Ghosts with multiple stories of the supernatural. The stories were prefaced by a short description introducing the term and ending with a summation of how a mysterious justice was dealt to the evildoers of the tale.  The first issue of this series with the singular title Ghost in its indicia, but everywhere else, including its own cover, it was the plural Ghosts , as the indicia would read from # 2 on .  Limited Collectors’ Edition # C-32 (Dec. 1974-Jan. 1975) reprinted stories from Ghosts # 1, 3-6 and featured new material by Leo Dorfman and artists Gerry Talaoc, ER Cruz , and Frank Redondo. 
Starting with issue # 37 (April 1975), a new regular feature was added. Robert L. Ripley’s Believe it or Not! features. These one-page introductory spreads were usually titled “Ghosts and the Supernatural.” A Ghosts Special was published in December 1977 as part of the DC Special Series umbrella title .  Ghosts # 95 (Dec. 1980), introduced to the Ghosts readership of its first continuing-character feature, ” Dr. 13 – The Ghost-Breaker .” The character encounted the spectrum in a three-issue storyline.    The “Dr. Thirteen” feature last appeared in # 102 (July 1981).
For the most part, Ghosts was not “hosted” by a recurring character used in a framing sequence. In issue # 104 (September-October 1981), however, Squire Shade was introduced as the title’s host. He lasted in this position until the book was canceled with issue # 112 (May 1982).
A Ghosts one-shot was published in October 2012 and featured a story by Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire .
