Ghostly entrails searching...

Been reading this little gem lately. 

A detailed account of various supernatural and occult stories from all over the world. 
An interesting fact: " It was considered by the Romans to be a curse for a man to die the last of his line. Consequently, so that the dead would not be too lonely, they were buried by the roadside so that their spirits could be cheered by the greetings of those who passed.
Despite the tendency of spirits to haunt the locale of their burial places, they were generally believed by the Romans to inhabit a specific underworld beneath the earth."

The sketch below is based on a demon who becomes separated from its body at night to take pray on human victims. The head must return to the body by daybreak or the demon will be destroyed.
