    The nice thing here is that Five Ghosts is ongoing now. And if this first issue is any indicator, then I think Five Ghosts will definitely be around for a while. I can't wait for issue eight. It is on my “musts” list from now. Give it a go (as well as the preceding series). It is well worth the time and investment. Read Full Review

    The final pages of the book offer an exciting tease about whats to come in the future. After this issue youll be certain that Five Ghosts is capable of just about anything. For most books this would be worrisome. However, for this book its the most exciting thing possible. I have no idea what part of the world well be traveling to next, but Im certain it will be a thrilling ride. Five Ghosts is back and I couldnt be happier. This series is a breath of fresh air, a real tour de force that provides adventures unlike any other. Get it on your pull list ASAP. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's good to see this mini-series has been given the green light to move forward as an ongoing title. Barbiere and company do great work in delivering a story that participates in a long tradition of heroic adventures, and it is one that even newer readers should be able to pick up and follow along without too much difficulty " though the trade edition of Issues #1-5 just came out, so it is well worth picking that up as well to stay current with this series.

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Oct 31, 2013

    I think I've made it pretty clear: “Five Ghosts” #6 is some good comics, laying out a beautifully blocked story with gobsmacking art. It's also pretty heartening to see a great miniseries continuing on in high style, but even if you didn't check out the miniseries, this is a great moment to hop on. Like the central encounter of this issue, you'll find the experience a revelatory one. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Oct 29, 2013

    It's nice to have Fabian back, especially without the emotional baggage that weighed down some last season's arc. And so far, this new arc has a lot of promise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Nov 4, 2013

    "Five Ghosts" combines the best elements of "Indiana Jones" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" for an exciting romp through literary history and the power of imagination. While Frank J. Barbiere and Garry Brown's sixth issue has its weaknesses, the story is pure, inventive fun that bursts with potential. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Oct 29, 2013

    In fact, cinematic would be the best word to describe this comic as a whole. While there isn't a tremendous sense of depth (in this issue, at least), Fabian Gray is an undoubtedly intriguing protagonist, and the title has a sense of swashbuckling grandeur to it that I absolutely loved. This is definitely a title that Im going to be adding to the reading list in the future, and this issue serves as a terrific jumping-on point for the curious. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Philip Suson Nov 1, 2013

    Overall, it is a good story with bad art. My rating system is based on 5 points for story, and 5 points for art. I give the story a 4 and the art a 1.3. Some may view it as harsh, but it makes the most sense to rate a comic on equal parts story and art. Five Ghosts #6 is a comic published by Image comics and was released October 30, 2013. It is available now at your local comic book store or digital provider. Expect the next issue to be released around November 27, 2013. Comment your thoughts below, as we love hearing from you.

    I think this was a good first issue for the on going series. Not quite up to the level of the first five, but that's to be expected. This is a comic that has a lot of potential, is fun and exciting, and gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

    As product this book rates higher for its high page count, pulp feel and done-in-one story. But the guest artist does not impress and the art can be downright ugly at times. I have high hopes for this series, but the writer needs to do a bit better at avoiding stereotypes and repetitious, weak dialog.
