Penciled by RON LIM
Cover by RON LIM
Adapting the second novel in Laurell K. Hamilton’s bestselling ANITA BLAKE series! St. Louis is a city of the

his safe return, Anita is called in to lend her special expertise as an Animator — one who can raise the bodies

of the dead. But as she pursues the truth behind his abduction, she descends into a maelstrom of voodoo

mysticism and the many dark secrets of her foes, her friends and — inevitably — herself! THE LAUGHING CORPSE

continues the exploration of Hamilton’s inventive universe of vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghouls — and the

brave hunter who tries to keep them all in line! Collecting ANITA BLAKE: THE LAUGHING CORPSE – BOOK ONE #1-5.
