Mystery of the Manse: Part Four is the fourth episode of Mystery of the Manse, written by Dan Vado and penciled by Mike Moss. It features the Ghost Host, and, within his story, his mortal identity of William Gracey (identifying the Host with Master Gracey) as well as Madame Leota, Emily de Claire, and cameos by the Hatbox Ghost and the ghostly pirate crew of the Pomona, yet to become the Pop-Up Ghosts of the Attic.
The Ghost Host continues the story of his life as William Gracey — with this portion of his tale concerning Gracey's realisation that his new house is horribly haunted as well as his romance with Emily de Claire. Soon a date is set for William and Emily's wedding, but, with it being unthinkable for him to bring her to his haunted house, he hires the psychic Madame Leota to banish the ghosts. Unfortunately, Leota falls in love with Gracey, who scorns her, and Leota begins to hatch a plot for revenge…
- Gracey's story picks up in Mystery of the Manse: Part Five (2006).
- The possibility for ghosts residing in the Haunted Mansion to be banished to “the Beyond” under the right circumstances was again mentioned in Frights of Fancy (2020).
