    If you couldnt tell Five Ghosts is one of the most consistently amazing books out there. Barbiere and Mooneyham have crafted a masterful dedication to pulp that pushes the medium and never fails to entertain. Deep characters, amazing adventures, and incredible action await you with every issue. Dont miss this book. Read Full Review

    Lost Coastlines continues to be a rollicking good time that you could argue is even more fun than the first, introductory arc. Read Full Review

    Like any good serial, issue eight leaves the reader hanging as some pretty heavy baddies are looking to give chase to Gray and his band of pirates. I just can't recommend thus title enough. It's intelligent, action packed, and nice time look at. If you are not reading it, then you are missing one of the most interesting titles in the Image stable at this time. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue seemed to slow down a bit from the faster pace of Issue #7 as it only follows one narrative thread compared to Part I where there were multiple storylines in play. Further, we are still left wondering how the scene with the Fabian adrift at sea and battling the shark factors into the overall story since it was not addressed in this issue. However, I suspect this is less of a problem with the writing as it is the nature of the serialized format " something readers of the collected edition won't even notice. Overall, readers of the series will enjoy seeing the foundation for this storyline continue to be established, and even newer readers should be able to pick up and follow along with relative ease.

    "Five Ghosts" #8 does a fantastic job setting up for a big, climactic clash, promising to have even more action and be even more fun. Barbiere and Mooneyham have expanded their universe in the best way possible, inventing a whole host of interesting new personalities and crafting a joyous, high-spirited adventure. Read Full Review

    This is a good issue, which shows some improvement in art and story.But i continue to waiver as to if its worth reading this series monthly. The Colors and design are probably the greatest things about this title. The writing and dialog are OK but show problems regularly. Maybe they excuse it as being "pulp", but they are flaws IMHO.
