A Ghost Story is a web comic that follows two unlicensed and semi-illegal "paranormal exterminators" who work as ghost busters for hire in a world where ghosts are so common they are widely regarded as household pests. Using unconventional methods and their connections to various shady dealers of occult items, the duo meet new "friends", ruin everything for everyone and are usually the driving force behind city wide panic.
Real live ghost busters? Penn State's Paranormal Research Society supplies crucial ghost busting services to students and local law enforcement, including a paranormal counselor and assistance in searching for the missing Cindy Song. They also host the only academic conference on paranormal activity in the country.
