Review: Ghost #0

Review of Kelly Sue DeConnick & Phil Noto's transcendental Ghost #0 from Dark Horse [Spoiler Free]




Publisher: Dark Horse Comics / Mike Richardson
Price: $2.99
Story: Kelly Sue DeConnick
Art: Phil Noto
Letterer(s): Richard Starkings & ComicCraft
Cover Art: Jenny Frison


Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost? Well put down your phone because this lovely lady won't slime you but she may just rip out your heart. Meet 'Resurrection Mary,' a supernatural beauty who's not only translucent and deadly, but, rumor has it that she comes from another world.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm an easy mark for any comic with a temptress on its cover and not for stereotypical reasons but because I admire the female form and enjoy stories about brave, strong women. Without any foreknowledge going in, I was drawn to Ghost #0 based solely on its cover and title. I was surprised to discover the depths of its girl power, as it's written by a woman and the cover that enticed me was drawn by a female as well. Who says women aren't into comics?

Personally, I'm not about spoilers and I don't dig lengthy recaps either. I can, however, reveal that this mystery woman is more intriguing than you might expect. And the shoddy pair of ghost hunters who unwittingly summon her get taken on one helluva wild ride.

If you enjoy enigmatic tales that leave you wanting more then Ghost #0 from Dark Horse Comics is a book you should definitely check out. This smartly-paced, well-drawn murder mystery is the collected compilation of three serialized Ghost entries originally appearing in Dark Horse Presents issues #13-#15. Issue #0 also serves as the audacious lead-in to "In the Smoke and Din," the upcoming four-part miniseries in which the rest of Ghost's story will be told.

Join former journalist Vaughn Barnes and intrepid Phantom Finder Tommy Byers in Ghost #0 as they get more than they bargained for when a curious device launches them into Resurrection Mary's haunted path. Pick up your copy now and make sure to grab "In the Smoke and Din" when it hits your LCS' shelf or from the Dark Horse Digital Comics Store. I know I'm looking forward to it.

Finally got around to reading this. Good first hook and I'm definitely in for the rest of the miniseries.
