Although Iâ€™ve long been aware of the character, this is the first Ghost story (heh) Iâ€™ve ever read. And itâ€™s a good one.
Written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Chris Sebela, and penciled by the stellar Ryan Sook, Ghost #1 introduces the character to new readers in a way that wonâ€™t bore long-time ones.
Ghostâ€™s (aka Elisa Cameron) mission is to purge demons from their human hosts, and then dispense with them. Unfortunately, this means that the human hosts also perish, a fact which while troubling for Elisa, was also something she could work through. Until now.
While all this is going on, the police are investigating a serial killer on the loose. Is he too, a demon? The cops donâ€™t think so. Either way, you know that Ghost is destined to face him. Or her.
And as if that werenâ€™t enough plot, were also introduced to the popular device of enemies joining forces, in a way that makes you want the next issue immediately.
All this for $2.99 â€” which is a pretty good deal, nowadays.
