The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of SPIRIT HUNTERS #8 from Zenescope Entertainment. The story is by Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco, Pat Shand, Dave Franchini, and Troy Brownfield; written by Troy Brownfield. The art is by Jason Muhr & Joe Sanchez Diaz, colors by Robby Bevard, and letters by Taylor Esposito of Ghost Glyph Studios.

The group responds to a rash of “accidents” happening at the campgrounds of Lake Kyros. With the group divided up to find more information about what happened, Ellen encounters a little boy who wants her to follow him into the woods.

This has been a great maxi-series and wish it would be upgraded to ongoing. The characters are hard not to like and care about. There’s a particularly nice focus on Curtis, who doubts his value to the team. That might be attributed to how he was treated when he was a child. Ellen’s abilities are a concern; she’s getting stronger, but is that a good thing or not? Jason Muhr & Joe Sanchez Diaz do a great job with the art, but it was Robby Bevard’s colors that grabbed me. Overall a fun book that should be checked out now.

SPIRIT HUNTERS #8 is at your local comic store or available at www.zenescope.com.
