    Ghost #12 is a superb entry, as it maintains the franchise quality and allows room to push the players forward in compelling ways. For that reason this comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    As a final issue there is not much more which can be asked of this than what it accomplishes. It never feels rushed as though it is trying to squeeze in one last large story arc in to a single issue. Instead it finishes organically, giving the main character an appropriate sendoff, while wrapping up loose ends. There are even some engaging action sequences in this story, adding some fun to the deeper messages. It is unfortunate that this series never gained better traction, but at the very least one can hope that its connection to the Project Black Sky imprint means that the hero will not be out of print for long.

    Ghost #13 provides a satisfying conclusion to this story arc as Elisa triumphs over Mr. Park, and in doing so, comes face to face with her new reality. I enjoyed the battle between the two, and even though Mr. Park's powers wouldn't be shown until this issue, what he represented made for an entertaining scenario. Despite Sloane being the closest to him, the impact of Tommy's death on others was still done in a cursory manner compared to Elisa. However, the flashback story and the conclusion of it was a great touch, and I'm looking forward to see her new reality going forward. Read Full Review

    After highlighting a jumping on point just a couple of issues ago for new readers, Ghost has come to a close. There's been some good stuff here at times and I continue to like Elisa and the character of the Ghost, but I've had issues with the series from the start in how it's accomplished its goals. The shift in the second half of the run was definitely for the better as it made it more engaging and interesting, finding its footing and moving forward, but it looks like it wasn't enough to save it. As much fun as I did have with it at times, I'm hopeful that it does get a new life, but one that completely starts from scratch with a bigger overall vision to work with. There just didn't seem to be a full on goal with it and it was muddled with too many characters on the support side that I had little interest in. When next we see Elisa, I'm hopeful for something moodier and more atmospheric and, in a sense, more of a painted piece rather than something comic-booky. Read Full Review

    The final pages of this book leads Ghost to some of the answers she was looking for, but judging by the brawl she enters, there is much more she needs to learn about this criminal underground and herself. This last fight was colored in a way that used transitions in colors to let us know when Ghost was hurt and wounded as well as shadows and darkness for when a new evil presents itself. I think that is one of the parts I really enjoy about this series, the contrast of light vs dark in colors really explains to the reader who the good guys are and who the bad guys are.
