Another Haunted...Temple? Ghosted #7 Review

Jackson finds himself much less in control of his surroundings.



Jackson has found himself dealing with the supernatural once again, and while he may not be dealing with a haunted house, the series still holds a great horror charm.  Ghosted #7 is another fine installment of the series, which progresses the current arc at a brisk pace and allows for some fun horror elements to be displayed.

Joshua Williamson hasn’t lost his touch on Ghosted, as made evident by his work with artist Davide Gianfelice in this issue.  The environment and location of the book might have changed, but it’s still full of quirky horror and likeable characters.  While this issue isn’t as scary as previous issues within the haunted house, it’s still entertaining to see Jackson working within the supernatural elements.  While Jackson was very in control of the first arc, this issue shows how he has to follow orders a little bit due to whom he’s working for.  Also, Anderson has to save him at one point in the issue, which really highlights just how little control Jackson has in his current situation.  One of my favorite lines of the issue comes from Jackson when they discover the temple they’re going to is haunted.  He states “Great.  Another damn haunted house,” and I think it’s great because it’s pretty much Williamson acknowledging the fact he’s re-treading territory, even though it’s nothing like the haunted house from the first arc.

Davide Gianfelice does a good job on the art in this issue.  He’s able to balance well between the realistic and supernatural elements.  When Anderson’s ghost transforms to save Jackson from two cult members, it’s a damn ghastly creature.  His action scenes are also full of movement and you can feel momentum and electricity within the panels.  When Jackson and the others are chasing some of the Brotherhood members down, you can really get a sense of urgency in the character movements.

This issue was pretty good.  It doesn’t ever really slow down, but I can say the foreboding nature isn’t there as much as it was in the first arc.  The haunted house really made you worry more for all the characters, but this issue just seemed to move to story along without too much repercussion.  Regardless, it’s still an entertaining read.  Ghosted is the fun horror comic you’ve been looking for and much, much more.

 

Verdict:  7.8/10.0
