    Major Spoilers

    There isn’t a single page of this issue that isn’t at least visually fascinating, and the stories on tap are all lovely little bits, like a Whitman’s chocolate sampler filled with poisons, dead things and the occasional razor-blade. It’s rare that a horror book never makes an old-school Rod Serling aficionado like me roll his eyes or predict what’s coming, and even the weakest story in this issue is still damn fine work. The Kubert piece is beautiful, and I was moved, entertained, disgusted and frightened by this issue, the mark of a comic that is more than just your average fare. Ghosts #1 keeps up a long tradition of scary DC (which, though similar phonetically, is not the same as scary EC), smacking me in the head for missing it in the Previews catalog. Don’t let the price tag scare you, this book is worth every penny, and it more than triple-sized in terms of reading pleasure.

    Bloody Disgusting

    From a variety of writers and artists, each twisted tale in “Ghosts” #1 gets better and better. Each ghost story encourages the reader to keep going, never giving them a chance to put the comic down. A great step in quality and quantity, there’s lots of great stuff in here.

    Yes, $8 is lot to ask for any comic, but Ghosts offers a wealth of content, and quality content at that.

    Comics: The Gathering

    I enjoyed 5 out of 9 stories, which isn’t too bad and at a hefty cover price of 7.99$, it was definitely a gamble. Some stories were hot, others were not, but in the end, it was worth it.
