The premise seems like it could really go somewhere but the author doesn't/didn't have the skill to write what seems to be intended.
It's not spooky, or haunting, in fact it's not much of anything.
Even the drawings misrepresent the writing.

Story was okay, could have been developed more. Drawings were interesting, but nothing more.
