    Haunt #19 is a good start to a run that already is showing lots of potential. While Casey clearly has some issues to work out as he takes over Haunt, overall, I am hopeful for the future of this series in his hands. Casey is a writer with the talent to give constant insane fun to his comics on a monthly basis. Haunt is a title with enough potential and possibility that I think he can take it great places.

    In "Haunt" #19, Joe Casey and Nathan Fox make an effort to please both existing readers of the title and newcomers, succeeding for the most part. The art is gorgeous and is worth poring over again and again to see exactly what Fox is doing. Casey glosses over a lot, but also provides a clear direction of where the book will wind up soon. The end of the issue is pure insane violence and leaves things in a very interesting place. Read Full Review

    There were elements in Casey's plot I enjoyed as well. Danny's frustration at never being alone, especially in the circumstances that play out later in the issue, is something to which anyone relate, allowing the reader to connect with the character in spite of the impossible premise. I found the issue's climax to be almost ridiculously violent, but since Danny's reaction was pretty much the same, it provides the proper context and made it easier to accept - even to appreciate as part of the story.

    Jumping on point?:This should have been a jumping on point, but it really wasn't. On the other hand, it also isn't much of a continuation from the old material, so I can't really recommend any of the past issues as the “perfect” place to jump in either. You'll have to figure this out yourself. Read Full Review

    If you've been reading Haunt since the beginning, you'll probably get more enjoyment out of Haunt #19. Fundamentally, the writing is up to Casey's standards, it's just that the story is not meant for anyone other than established Haunt fans. And that's disappointing. This was a clear chance to pull in new readers, and Casey blows it. Oh well, I can make due without picking up yet another superhero book. Read Full Review
