A Review: GHOST #4

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of GHOST #4 from Dark Horse Comics. The story is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, with pencils by Geraldo Borges, inks by Andy Owens, colors by Dan Jackson, and lettering by Richard Starkings and Comicraft.

Ghost has put aside her personal crusade and decides to become Chicago’s protector. Meanwhile, Tommy, Sloane, and Vaughn are going through James Barrow’s storage locker of personal items. They discover a eulogy written for Elisa Cameron. In the eulogy, a story from a summer long ago in which childhood innocence is lost, and a possible glimpse of a hero can be seen.

This is another home run by Ms. DeConnick. I love that she portrays that Elisa was always willing to do the right thing, even if it may endanger her life. Unfortunately, this is her swan song on the book (at least for now) and Chris Sebela (with Jan Duursema coming on board as penciller). Glad to see Ghost back and knowing she is a part of this shared hero universe Dark Horse is building. Get on board this one!

GHOST #4 is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.darkhorse.com.
