The Event Horizon on

Imagine an alternate history where ghosts and demons are a normal part of life. Families known as the Great Houses control the economy of the Great States of America and the middle class and the lower class Irish sole purpose is to not only to serve them, but to rid their lives of supernatural beings. Based on the popular steampunk supernatural graphic novel and prose series, Boston Metaphysical Society, The Ghost Ship follows the cases of an ex-Pinkerton detective, a spirit photographer, and a genius scientist who battle supernatural forces in late 1800s Boston. This story takes place during the time period of the original graphic novel six issue mini-series.

This is a standalone eight episode series based during the timeline of the original six issue mini-series. Each episode is approximately 30 minutes long, and you can listen to them here.

The Kickstarter for the production gained 404 backers, and raised over $17K from a $10k goal.
