Being a big horror movie buff, when I heard about Ghosted, I knew it was something I had to check out. It didn’t disappoint. The first three issues were packed with suspense and just enough charm to make you connect with our rag-tag bunch of thieves that automatically made me think of an Ocean’s movie. At the end of issue #3, our gang finally saw glimpses of just how in over their heads they’ve gotten themselves. How do you steal a ghost? Will they even make it out of the house alive to accomplish their mission? Just how bad are things really going to get?
Joshua Williamson continues to impress me with this series. It takes a steady hand to craft a horror story that not only feels original, but pays homage to what came before it and Ghosted pulls it off beautifully. At the end of every issue I’ve read so far, I find myself wanted just a few more pages just to see what’s about to happen. Luckily for us, every month Williamson makes it totally worth the wait. I’ve never READ something that makes me hesitant to see what’s around the next corner or if someone is going to turn around and see some hellish ghoul behind them, but seeing it in a comic and not on the big screen makes the suspense even better because it feels much more personal!
The art in Ghosted has been on point since issue #1 and is only getting better as the story moves along. Up until now we’ve only really gotten glimpses of these ghosts are. This issue not only shows us what they look like, but what they’re capable of. I can only hope we’re just scratching the surface of what these tortured souls are and what they look like, because I think Goran Sudkuza and co. are on to something beautifully twisted and entertaining.
If you’re a fan of horror stories this book is an absolute must read. If you have a friend that loves Stephen King or horror flicks pass them a copy of this and I promise it’s something they’ll love. Williamson has done his homework and it shows in the story. This is a soon-to-be classic in a genre saturated in people trying to re-invent the wheel. Simply put, this is a FANTASTIC horror story for any fan of the genre, written by a fan of it who knows exactly what people want to see!
