Von Ghastly’s not just a corny TV host—he’s an obsessive cult leader with a brainwashed fan club of obedient minions. What’s worse, he’s tapped into a power that allows him to physically touch Ghost! Will she be able to cancel his program before he takes her permanently off the air?

    Ghost #6 continues to build its arc while taking the time to focus in on Elisa Cameron. And its through that human need to understand the decisions we make that we find a release that happens to rise above the rest of the crop. In short: it easily earns the right to be highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Ghost #6 treads on new territory that brings some much-needed depth to Elisa. It's very easy to write a character who can phase through anything she wants, but it takes a lot more effort to throw something at her which challenges what she's capable of. There was always a fear that Ghost could beat anyone who wasn't also a Ghost, but with this issue those fears have been laid to rest and replaced with interest to see how she makes a comeback with tact.

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jul 2, 2014

    Ghost #6 succeeds in many aspects, like its continuing balance between action and plot/character development, as well as being visually appealing. The creators certainly continued their successful trend with issue #6 as more mysteries are created. Who is the Hunter and who does he work for? And if Ghost isn't his main target, then who is? So many questions with so few answers, but that's what makes it so intriguing and what keeps us coming back issue-to-issue. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 2, 2014

    With an interesting spin on the whole demon aspect, local TV celebrities and the growing threat in the background, Ghost has a decent issue but it feels like it's on quicksand to some degree. Things are shifting here, there's a sense that it can go in any number of directions and there's an uncertainty to events. Which can work well when viewed as part of the bigger picture while leaving you with a lot of unease during the individual chapter. It moves between events quickly, almost a little haphazardly, but it gets to where we see the real lurking danger sliding into place and that certainly draws you in to wonder what more is going on. Sebela keeps things moving and starts to flesh out the support side more while providing Elisa with some decent narration and it all comes together under the always wonderful artwork from Duursema.

    The Weekly Crisis - CeeJay Jul 10, 2014

    The issues downfall is, once again, the shoehorning of Elisa's mysterious backstory. It's very seldom handled well and detracts from more interesting narrative and visual things that could and should be happening more. It's even evident in the interiors. When Von Ghastly isn't there the whole issue becomes dull (in art style, color and narrative engagement). That's unfortunate because the series has a lot of potential. Read Full Review

    I like Von Ghastly as a villain. He is one of those Horror Show Hosts of yesteryear. I remember as a kid hiding behind the couch from them in fear yet having too much fun to change the channel. The writing is solid. I've only read this series since #5 and already identify with and care about the characters. It can swerve from humorous to adrenalised action to gory shock rather smoothly. The art looks very good. Not just the cover. I hate when the cover (done by Jenny Frison)looks so good but the interior looks like it was better off left on the editor's floor. In this issue I think both the cover and the interior hold up well. The only improvement I would want to see is more interaction between the main characters. As a newer reader I want to get to know these people well and while some time was devoted to that this issue (and the last) I felt another page would have been awesome. Unfortunately I can't find an action page that we could sack for another page of dialogue. So I guess I'll just have to wait for next months issue.
