    This the type of comic I'm drawn to, so it's not shocking at all as to how much I enjoyed it and that I'd recommend it for others. There's some cool characters, an exciting plot, and a concept that leads to tension and some interesting possibilities. Take in the fact that a major city goes bye-bye early on, you don't know how far the comic will go, adding in to the excitement. Overall, a solid read that I want more of. Read Full Review

    The dialogue is sharp and the story is well paced, blending elements of sci-fi, espionage and political thriller. There are a lot of story points in this issue and you certainly get your moneys worth. The creative team establishes several threads in Ghost Town #1 that I am looking forward to exploring in future issues including the big reveal on the last page.Dwonch and Company have provided comic fans with a unique spin on the time travel genre in Ghost Town #1. If this is any indication of the quality of books we will see being published under the Danger Zone imprint, I am excited to see what else Action Labs has in store for us. Read Full Review

    The thing about this book is that it’s setting up a lot for the next chapter and so the focus is divided between now and what’s to come. It does a great job of plot building, but there are really only two awesome scenes for the reader to enjoy. I would definitely stop back by for more of this world though and if you like time travel it’s definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review

    It's possible this comic is an assemble piece and that I'm missing the point of where this story is headed. However, the lack of an emotional anchor makes it difficult for readers to connect with this new comic franchise. In the end, I hope that I'm proven wrong and that the by-the-numbers first issue of this five-issue series is simply a hiccup in a tale that takes advantage of no only the last page reveal but the dialogue, artistic direction and the ghost town as well.
