Mystery of the Manse: Part One is the first episode of Mystery of the Manse, written by Dan Vado and drawn by Mike Moss and Brian Belew. It features the Ghost Host, and, within his story, his mortal identity of William Gracey (identifying the Host with Master Gracey) as well as Captain Randall Pace.
The Ghost Host decides to tell his life's story — taking him back to his days as Master William Gracey, first mate of Captain Pace's ship the Pomona, and the fateful night when he beheaded his treacherous captain in a fit of anger, becoming the dreaded pirate “Captain Blood”!
- Mystery of the Manse: Final Chapter (2006) establishes that the Host is talking to a Treasure-Hunter.
