Haunt #19 (BUY THIS BOOK! Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Dec 03, 2011 10:51 am

Wow, that was awesome, I don’t want to insult Kirkman, McFarlane, Ottley, Capullo et al, but the previous 18 issues just feel like a warm-up for this new creative team. This is Alan Moore on Supreme-level stuff in the way it takes a book and just moves it to another level (although Haunt was nowhere near as bad as Liefeld’s Supreme). First of all, the artwork from Nathan Fox is just sublime, every page is amazing, every panel is incredibly detailed, it’s just so interesting, and so not what you’d expect from a book like this. I hope Fox can keep up the high standard he sets here, because this is one of the best-looking comics I’ve read this month. Joe Casey’s story is great too, he’s setting up some very interesting villains and the flash-forward on the first 2 or so pages was very enticing. I also like how he’s doing an Orange Juice and ripping it up and starting again, the Government Spy Organization has just disappeared, Daniel Kilgore’s girlfriend is dead, and the nature of Haunt and Kurt seems to have completely changed, this is a brave new world for Haunt, and I’m very excited to see where it goes. If you’ve been ignoring this book because it reminds you too much of 90s Image, try this one and rethink your position.

Thanks, Punch. I think I'll check this out. I bought the first twelve issues, but dropped the book during a cull of my pull list.

A friend and I were looking at this Thursday night at the shop. He's a big fan of the artist, and from what I saw in this book rightfully so. There was only the one copy on the shelf and he was going to pick it up at the end of the night. Not sure if he did, but I'm pretty sure it won't be there next time I go in.

It was okay. I feel that I'd appreciate it more if I was reading Haunt before Casey and Fox showed up. :smt102
