    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Sep 11, 2013

    GHOSTED is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. It's a fantastic concept that has really been delivering the past few months. Writer Joshua Williamson has a great book here, and with the combine creative talents of Goran and Miroslav, this is a book that everyone should be reading. It's different, in the best way possible. Overall, I highly recommend this book and this series. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Sep 13, 2013

    I'm SO glad I started reading this. Anyone who's a fan of any type of scary movie should be reading this. It's got a great cast of characters and we're just starting to sink our teeth into this haunting tale. So stay tuned, put some fresh batteries in your flashlight, and throw the blankets over your heads folks, because things are sure to get spooky! Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Sep 16, 2013

    Overall, this was another solid performance by the creative team, and so far the most enjoyable of the three issues. The characters are really starting to come into their own, and the story has become more and more interesting.  The only negative thing I have to say is really about the future -- although the premise is good to this point and I am really enjoying it, I find it hard to picture how the team will stay together once they capture the Trask ghost and deliver it to Schrecken.  I certainly hope they do stay together and have more adventures like this one... but I'm not really seeing how Williamson is going to get them there.  Perhaps this means that the series will be short-lived, but if so, I'm certainly along for the ride at this point.

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Sep 10, 2013

    If you're not reading GHOSTED, I'm not sure what's wrong with you. Some may be turned off by the horror aspects, but even if you're not a fan of horror, there's so much more to this book that ignoring it is a foolish mistake. With some fantastic, mood-setting art and a well-written storyline with a number of intriguing mysteries and compelling characters, GHOSTED is a book you should be anxiously awaiting each and every month. I certainly do. Read Full Review

    I’m in this one for the long haul. Really interesting story that I’m looking forward getting into deeper. The art blends well with the narrative and sets up a great atmosphere. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - ShadowJayd Sep 13, 2013

    He and Sudzuka have a knack for ending each issue on an extremely high note and Ghosted #3 is no different. The last 7 pages steal the show with an increased focus on horror, something thats been in the undertone of the series until now. Williamson sets up a crazy cliffhanger ending that will, again, solidify most readers interest. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Sep 11, 2013

    Ghosted #3 is a book that should leave the audience on the edge of their seats for the next 30 days. The cliff hanger could be a huge game changer for the series if it sticks, and could completely alter the tone of the book. Ghosted is a wonderfully under the radar series, and if the story continues to surprise the audience every month, it could be one of the better horror books in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Sep 13, 2013

    Ghosted #3 keeps up with the inherent question of do you believe in ghosts? and to that I add a fourth option: Im undecided. Theres a possibility they could exist, and theres a possibility they couldnt. However, something like Ghosted keeps me questioning. If they were real, what would they do to us? What could they do to us? The powerful central conceit behind the comic isnt the story itself, but rather the fundamental questions it asks, and the implication of those questions, even if those questions are rooted in something as trivial as pop-culture.

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Sep 13, 2013

    If you're already on board with “Ghosted”, this issue will definitely not knock you off; and if you're still making up your mind, it might just rein you in. It's a great-looking book, and if this issue is any indication, Williamson's got even more surprises in store. And at the very least, you know this is going to stack up into a gorgeous trade paperback. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Sep 11, 2013

    The art for the book is pretty decent. The ghosts look neat, the characters all look different and unique (though one or two tend to have the same facial features); the coloring works very well in certain panels, especially that certain page towards the end; and there are a couple of memorable images in the book. It's good stuff in general for a book like this. 7.5 Finally some ghost thrills and chills this time around.All of the writing is competent and engaging.The art works and fits well with the story.Still lots of setup.Story unfolding very slowly.Not much characterization going on.

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Sep 13, 2013

    This is the issue that sells readers on the rest of the series, and anyone who might have given up after finding a paranormal presence largely lacking in the previous issues will find what they were looking for in this one. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Sep 11, 2013

    Ghosted #3 is the best read of the series, but if you're looking more horror in your crime, it doesn't quite deliver. At least yet. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - The Frog Queen Sep 10, 2013

    I liked about half the story art. The only thing I really took issue with was how the “ghosts” were portrayed. In comics, things are scarier when they aren't all up in your face (unless of course your Junji Ito) but I'm not entirely sure if this is supposed to be scary, because it's not. Yet I'm not laughing either. It's too bad really because the cover is fabulous. I think Sudzuka has some real talent. I mean he worked on Hellblazer, one of my favorite series of all-time (Hellblazer: Lady Constantine). So far though, writer Williamson has left a lot to be desired. 5/10 Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham Sep 11, 2013

    I take the blame for this due to the fact that my expectations were a little too high. I have a bad habit of getting hyped on an idea and sometimes what it is of be something that it's not or never could be. If you're reading and enjoy Ghosted, I think that's awesome but Ghosted has scared me for the last time. Read Full Review
