    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Jun 26, 2013

    If there is one minor complaint about the book, is that there is no recap page to keep new readers from knowing what happened in the previous issues and will be lost if they pick up this issue. That being said, I highly enjoyed the comic regardless. I have to commend the creative team for delivering a comic for readers that want something different than what's out there. Trust me when I say, this book is one of the best hidden gems in Image today. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Andrew Lamb Jul 5, 2013

    I mistakenly read all four issues in one sitting. I am now aching for Part Five. If the next book is as good as its predecessors, this series will compete with Helheim as one of the best reads of the year. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Jun 28, 2013

    What happens when you combine mystical battles between two age old masters (featuring a dragon!) with the lead taking a vision quest through his own soul to claim the rights of his powers? An awesome comic, it turns out, as Barbiere and Mooneyham continue to craft one of the best comic minis of 2013 Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Jun 25, 2013

    It's hard not to like this miniseries, and as it prepares to draw to a close with the next issue. There is a lot of momentum being built behind this story, and hopefully Image will make the right call and green light this creative team to put forth either a second miniseries or even an on-going title altogether. In any event, make sure to pick this book up if you've been following the series; if you haven't, go find some back issues and get caught up. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Jun 27, 2013

    "Five Ghosts" has been a thrilling ride, and doesnt want to stop. The story is firing on all cylinders and continues to be incredibly compelling. This is a story youll only find in comics (unless they pick it up as a film), and it shines through. The anticipation for the final chapter starts now. It cannot come soon enough, and at the same time I never want "Five Ghosts" to end. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 3, 2013

    An enjoyable little read, but ultimately a very little one, with hardly enough substance to occupy your mind as you're reading, rather yet when you've put the issue down. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Jun 26, 2013

    With very little attention given to the central drama of this story, Five Ghosts #4 has painted itself into a corner. The concluding issue of this series will have to do a lot, and have very little time to do it. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 22pgs +2 pg prv. Almost NO ADs! B+ semi wrap cover. Nice pulp feel, weight and design. . . Opening with a rich and nuanced first page, the art opens up, colors become pale and are the backgrounds bare. Still, Mooneyham's art is wonderful and transports me to old comics and pulp. Lauren Affe's colors are subtle, graceful and nuanced. We get a lot of action and progress in this issue that really focuses on the ghosts, and earning their approval. Four tests are given which are not always stunning but enjoyable enough, considering the action. At $3 i hope none of you are missing out but if so, i hear the TPB will be only $10! WOW
