    Williamson and Sudzuka continue to impress on Ghosted. It's quickly becoming one of Image's best titles. Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Sep 3, 2013

    Overall, this series has quickly impressed me, and in two fast issues has earned the distinction of being put on my in-shop pull list.  I'm still not sure if the basic premise has the legs to go the distance, or if the series will be short-lived, but however long it goes, I'm on board for the ride now.  What I have most enjoyed are the well-drawn characters and the interesting character interactions.  This book has what so many of the DC comics I've been reading lately have sorely lacked -- character development.  Williamson and Sudzuka have put together a really good team here, and I am already waiting impatiently to read the next installment.

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Aug 14, 2013

    I wasn't sure how much I likedGhosted after the first issue, but after this issue, I'm definitely enjoying it. There's an interesting story, interesting characters, good dialogue, good art. It's a solid issue and a solid series. I'll definitely be looking forward to reading the next issue, and that's the bottom line! Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Aug 15, 2013

    Overall, Ghosted #2 continues laying the foundation of the first issue while allowing the readers imagination to grab hold. What makes this book work so well is that the reader has an idea where the story is headed but the journey is the fun part. I am really glad I stumbled upon this and look forward to getting a connection with these characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Aug 14, 2013

    GHOSTED #2 delivers an extremely strong issue that delves into the main cast of characters and the roles they'll play in the upcoming series, without bogging down or slowing down the main story. Sudzuka and Williamson are putting together a very interesting story, with an out there concept, that really works as a series. This was very close to 5/5, and if only reviewers were allowed to give half stars. As far as GHOSTED goes, I'd put this up there with CLONE. Image is bringing the heat with these fantastic titles.

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Aug 14, 2013

    The art is as strong as ever. Goran Sudzuka has some great character designs for the cast, not to mention some stellar designs for the setting. The "haunted" house is becoming a character itself, with dated architecture and enough shadows draped across the interior to make you think twice about stepping inside. There's a particularly astonishing moment when a character opens a door to a strange, strange place, and it's moments like that that will keep you coming back to Ghosted. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - ShadowJayd Aug 15, 2013

    Overall, “Ghosted” #2 is a fun book that plays into the main elements of the heist genre, but brings something different to the table as well. The twist on the last page will solidify reader investment in the series. If Williamson and Sudzuka end each chapter as epically as they did the first two, readers are in for an awesome treat.

    I'm interested to see more of the characters, and especially more of the mansion and it's previous owners explored further. Image continues to put out some great new series, and this one is no exception. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Aug 16, 2013

    Williamson and Sudzuka's “Ghosted” succeeds by taking a couple of very familiar (and pretty in vogue) genres and mixing them up. There's a little bit of horror, a little bit of “Hoax Hunters” paranormal procedural structure going on, and a whole lot of heist movie flair to tie it all together. With a balanced cast of characters and a pacing that never stays in one place for too long, “Ghosted” freshens up a bunch of things that we've seen in plenty of comics before. Sudzuka and Williamson are both veteran talents at this point – ready to be in the spotlight a little more. Hopefully, with enough support, “Ghosted” will get them there. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sean M. Thompson Aug 15, 2013

    Worth a read, but not a hell of a lot happens. Fun, but I've almost immediately forgotten what happened. Still, not a bad way to spend your reading time. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - MJ Feuerborn Aug 17, 2013

    Ghosted walks the line between cliche and setting itself apart, and has thus far done a pretty okay job of the latter. Much of the book feels very business-as-usual for the genre. But while the story will likely take some fairly predictable steps in the future, it's doubtful that Williamson will let it happen without at least a few surprises along the way. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Aug 19, 2013

    Ghosted is a comic with a lot up its sleeve. Joshua Williamson moves through several different genres so the comic never fully settles on one constant, which is good, because this adds a level of originality to the story. After two issues, my interested is piqued. There's enough story to keep readers interested, so I hope Williamson can move his characters beyond the establishing stage and start letting their individuality come through. He's got an interesting premise. Now he has to show readers what he plans to do with it. Read Full Review

    Geek Smash - Vince Mancuso Aug 16, 2013

    Still, I found Ghosted #2 to be an entertaining read, as many people, myself included, seem to enjoy a good ghost story every once in awhile. I hope to see further character development as a Ghost Hunters fan, Id like to see more Burns Brothers as this heist plays out. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham Aug 14, 2013

    This issue had its mandatory ghost parts sprinkled in here and there which was nice for a comic called Ghosted. It also had Jackson and all his cool guy lines. "We're off like a prom dress", classic Jackson. Other than sassy Jackson not too much happened within this book. It felt like a roller coaster pulling you up for the first drop then all of a sudden it stops before the drop. Then the park attendants just talk to you for 22 pages about nothing. Overall it wasn't a bad issue; it just felt as if the momentum went south. Read Full Review
