    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Feb 20, 2014

    This is a series that dives headlong into whatever suits it, regardless of how cray that thing seems. I mean, "Soviet ghost woman beheads pair of devil orgiers?" Sure why not? You know who says sure why not to an idea like that? A person with brass balls that's who, a guy like Josh Williamson. Ghosted #7 is a blast, just like the six issues before it. If you don't read Ghosted, do. If you've ever enjoyed Indiana Jones, Cowboy flicks or haunted houses you will enjoy this comic. If you don't enjoy a single one of those things? The door is that way… Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Samantha Cross Feb 20, 2014

    Above all else, Ghosted #7 is very much about playing with expectations. There is one moment involving Taylor and Nuki that you see coming a mile away, but it seems intentional so everything else that follows has the ability to go in the other direction. How far will Jackson go to save his own skin? What is the actual purpose of the Brotherhood? What does Wenona really want with her granddaughter? It's a great way for Williamson to play around with the concept and give a fresh take on hauntings and possession. Anderson acting as Jackson's own murderous Jiminy Cricket is delightful, by the way. And I continue to be blown away by Davide Gianfelice's art. The details, the gestures, that one creepy smile that I'm sure will come back to haunt us all in our nightmares"it's so fluid and gorgeous that I can't wait to see what else Williamson comes up with so I can see Gianfelice make it manifest in the artwork.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 20, 2014

    This book has honestly been one of the best series to come out in a good while. Joshua Williamson continues to kill this series with great character work and thoughtful story telling. Not that you need another reason to buy this series, but the letters page has been turned into a share your ghost story section, which is downright creepy. An all around great job by everyone involved. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 19, 2014

    GHOSTED #7 really kicks this new story up into high gear. The book may feel more like a detective story rather than a heist book, which was the entire first arc, but this story still retains a lot of what people loved about that first story, while raising the bar for the book. Williamson is really crafting a spooky and entertaining world for readers and Gianfelice's art gives this issue a great sense of style and purpose. This is a series, like many Image books, you really need to jump on and read. I can't give this a higher recommendation. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Josh Raj Feb 19, 2014

    Overall, Ghosted #7 has plenty of shocking moments. Jackson seems to be stuck with no way out and Anderson said she will not save him. Is there another ghost who will save Jackson or will he enter the spirit world which was promised to be full of pain for him. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Feb 19, 2014

    Ghosted continues to deliver on the promise of its premise in new and interesting ways. This second arc is another fun spin on the horror genre with a near perfect fuse of crime elements. It manages to breath new life into both genres and creates something entirely new and totally enviable. It continues to be my favorite horror comic on the stands and with each passing issue only proves to be more captivating. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Feb 17, 2014

    GHOSTED #7 is yet another issue that proves that this series has a lot of life in it, and even if you're here for the ghosts, it'll be the characters that make you stick around. The more we learn about Winters and his, ahem, affliction, the more intriguing he gets, along with the world in which he inhabits. If you haven't hopped onboard the Ghosted train yet, what are you waiting for? Scare yourself up a copy of the first trade and catch yourself up–you won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Josh Reifler Feb 19, 2014

    Ghosted #7 – pg. 4Ghosted #7 – pg. 5Ghosted #7 – pg. 6Ghosted is a high drama comic that has cemented itself a solid spot in the Skybound publishing line. While Jackson Winter may be a stereotypical ‘Ocean Eleven's' style con-man, Williamson manages to throw him into scenarios interesting enough that you forgive the main character's flaws. While I wasn't sure if this book was going to continue in quality after the first volume, I'm pleased to note that the quality has stayed where you would expect and together with a new artist Williamson is bringing some strange and creepy ideas that readers may not want to miss. 8 out of 10.

    Geeked Out Nation - Benny Morduchowitz Feb 21, 2014

    Read it if you're a fan of the book, or if you're really into “lost in Mexico” crime stories, or supernatural crime stories, but if those things aren't your cup of tea, I don't know if this issue has that much to offer you this month. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Feb 20, 2014

    Davide Gianfelice in on art duties, and his characters are all unique and expressive. His style is fairly down-to-earth, which makes the book's sudden shifts into the paranormal that much more shocking. His clear and dynamic action along with his appropriately gruesome monsters makes it clear just what kind of danger our main character continues to find himself in. Read Full Review

    This one gave me chills. And thought it's not technically the comic, the letter column at the end was pretty cool. Keep it coming, guys. Awesome stuff.
