As Cleo struggles to reintegrate into her high school after a stay in a psychiatric hospital for her depression and suicidal thoughts, she is being hunted by a supernatural terror that only she can see.
Can the 16-year-old unravel the mystery behind the threat in time?
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An engaging and suspenseful issue from Ethan and Naomi Sacks. The story takes some interesting twists and turns both with the interpersonal conflicts and the supernatural elements. I enjoy the mystery building in this story and look forward to seeing what happens next. The Art: Lorenzana crafts some beautiful art in the issue. The visuals are engaging and filled with amazing detail.
COMICONThere’s the story, then the story within the story. Both are intriguing, but the tale presented here is taking a bit too long to unfold given there are only two issues left in the run. Some uneven artwork isn’t helping matters.
ComicBook.comA really enjoyed A Haunted Girl #2, but I feel like there is a bit of a disconnect from the end of the first issue and this second issue, almost as if the second issue is as much a first issue as the first issue was. We don't really advance the story too much, save for to see Cleo struggle to integrate into high school as her haunting intensifies, but the actual mystery of what she's dealing with feels a little stagnant here. The art is still quite lovely and there's a great bit of reverence for mental health, both aspects which elevate the book, but narratively it very much feels like we haven't advanced very much which is a bit of a problem for a story that is hinting at having wide implication.
