    This comic isn't about trucks as much as it tries to make you think it is sometimes. They're simply the vehicle of a bigger story. That story is one of intrigue, mystery, frustration, brokenness and violence. Yes, sometimes it's a little over the top but, if you haven't read any of this book yet, I suggest you pick up the 1-4 pack on DH's website as well as this new issue available digitally today. If you're already on board, I'll see you next month because after this set up, I'm sure you're not going anywhere. Read Full Review

    Ghost Fleet continues to be of the utmost quality, its a crime that it doesnt have a bigger fan base. Ive said it before and Ill say it again, dont judge this book before youve read it. Its not a hoorah for beerguts, its an excellent action-thriller-mystery that a lot of comic fans would enjoy if they read it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Mar 4, 2015

    The Ghost Fleet hasn't gone anywhere and Cates, Johnson and Affe are making sure you know it by delivering the next punch of their deceivingly deep slobber-knocker. This issue certainly quiets things down and sets the stage for a new conflict, but the character development bombs (no, not literally, though confusion is understandable) hit as hard as anything that's come before. It cannot be stressed enough that this series isn't simply "Supernatural Trucker Stuff!" or anything quite so banal. No, it's a revenge tale rife with visceral heartbreak and intricacies found both in script and in art that isn't afraid to have fun along the way. A much needed "take a breath" issue that still has no qualms about kicking you in the balls, The Ghost Fleet #5 remains a perpetual must-read. Unless something happens to that dog, in which case let's burn everything to the ground. Man, what a night. Read Full Review
