Ghost has recovered all of her memories as Elisa Cameron, but instead of this making things easier, it just highlights the differences between who she was and what she has become. Can Elisa be the Ghost and still retain her humanity? Or will Ghost run out of control?
•   The beginning of a hard-hitting new arc!

    Ghost #9 is an exciting start to the new story arc as Elisa's memories returning has not only left her torn about approaching her family but put her in a precarious situation when it comes to abusing her powers. The revelation of her battles in hell and all that did to her opened up a fascinating new angle to understand her character and give clarification about her struggles in the last story arc. It was good to see her use her powers in some creative ways, and I am curious to see how far she will go in her new course of action to protect the city. I don't know what role her friends will play in shaping her at this point but I do hope it's not something superficial that waters down what is needed for her in this new situation. But I'm excited to see how things unfold for her. Read Full Review

    Ghost #9 is the start of a fight that's more down to Earth for our supernatural wonder. Punching demons in the face is one thing, but there's so much more that can happen and influence this world when Elisa wants to take the fight to the streets and make a real difference in people's lives.

    The end result is pretty good. The main character is still being fleshed out in terms of background, but the struggle that she has with her ethics over visiting her friend plus the decision about her new career as a superhero work well to the character development for the series protagonist. Add in some decent and fun action as she sets out on her first mission as well as a contemporary enough emphasis on her heroics, and the issue ends up fitting together nicely. As a standalone issue it works by itself, and so it lives up to the claim of being a good starting point, and anyone at all interested in this series that has been putting off reading it might want to start here.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 5, 2014

    Ghost continues to have its moments but is weaker as a whole. Looking over the past nine issues, it's a rollercoaster ride of what it is it wants to be and I'm still not entirely sure it knows. With Elise now in possession of her memories, she's making plans and moves that she wants to do rather than reacting to what's being thrown at her. That's a big plus and one that works well to make it feel like it has direction. Frankly, at this point, I'd rather see a wholesale ejection of the supporting cast and Elise moving into the darker aspects of her world and working solo to deal with the darkness within the city she operates out of. I'm not sure where things will go from here, but I'm certainly curious to see where the creative team will take her and if they can finally give her some real weight to work with when it comes to her stories and her character.

    It's a fairly okay entry point, but as a dedicated fan I was looking for something more not only for me, but to bring others into a world that I adore, ultimately. Read Full Review
