    There's so much to say about this story arc considering all that Elisa has been through, but all you need to know is that she's not the woman to mess with. Elisa is still vulnerable sure, but now you can see how different she is and will be now that there is an acceptance of what she has become. Her future is still a mystery, though the present holds answers that makes us want to see what that future has in store for us. Read Full Review

    Ghost #8 is an exciting conclusion to the story arc as Elisa finally lets go, and in the process not only becomes stronger but a more intriguing character as the truth of her nature is hinted at in a horrifying way. I enjoyed the progression throughout this story arc from her feeling bored about fighting common criminals to her maturing in her role and now standing face to face with the truth about her past. I felt it was already clear her friends were concerned with her and wanted to help but Vaughn's drinking habit seemed to be random this issue. But with answers about her past certain to be revealed next issue I can't wait to get my hands on it. Read Full Review

    Ghost #8 is an excellent outing that pushes its narrative forward while developing its main character. In other words: this is one book that garners both attention and earned praise as it comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Overall, Ghost veers wildly between extremes. It's somewhere between a decidedly average 2/5 in some places and an outstanding 5/5 in others. Ultimately, I live in hope " as, it turns out, does our Ghost. Read Full Review

    If you loved Ghost as character from previous series then this issue will probably entertain you. As a new reader to this new run Ghost #8 is one of the worse issues to date. It's not terrible, just muddied and unfocused, but that makes Ghost #8 a difficult reading experience that most readers could stand to skip. Read Full Review

    I've had a difficult relationship with this incarnation of Ghost overall as it hasn't felt like it's really found its own identity. It looks like it's trying to do that now by unlocking something inside of Elisa and exposing her to the larger world out there, but it's hard to say if that's the right approach yet. I've long liked the basic idea of the character and the visual appeal of it all, but this volume of the character is one that hasn't clicked completely yet. A lot of that has come down to the opponents that she's faced, which haven't been engaging or interesting, and the supporting cast which has been helpful at times but that's about it. While it's not bad, it's not winning me completely and it sometimes feels like we already need a complete do-over to establish it in a better way. Read Full Review
