''Ghostopolis'' is a graphic novel written and illustrated by DougTenNapel. Clocking in at 272 pages, it ties with ''Earthboy Jacobus'' for being his longest book. Unlike most of his comics, this one is published by Scholastic's Graphix imprint rather than by Creator/{{Image}}. Along with ''ComicBook/{{Gear}}'' and ''Solomon Fix'', it's one of his few comics that's been printed in color and the first one that was not initially published in Black and White.
