A mentally troubled man is suddenly empowered with the ability to leave his physical body in "ghost" form and manipulate people in strange and disturbing ways. With this incredible power, will he control his demons...or discover even more?
JOSHUA LUNA of the Luna Brothers (ULTRA, GIRLS, THE SWORD) makes a solo debut with a dark, supernatural thriller that questions free will and explores the obsessions, addictions and urges we all have and may not have control of at all.

    Overall this first issue of Whispers is a great comic and it works very well at being the sort of first issue that will make you want to read more. The characters are engaging and the moral questions that Sams newfound abilities bring up are certainly worth exploring. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Dan Horn Jan 12, 2012

    This debut leaves something to be desired, especially following last week's brilliant Fatale #1 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, but the Luna Brothers' Girls had a similarly clunky start, managing to be both cliche and more than a bit on-the-nose. Being a fan of the Lunas, I'm fairly secure in betting that Whispers will eventually develop into something that is the sum of its parts, with immersive, well-written installments outweighing the banalities of its introduction. Even this issue shows a good amount of promise. It's enough to warrant picking up Whispers #2 for sure. Read Full Review

    The cover artwork and title are infinitely promising, but the title is unfortunately apropos. These whispers are really just mumbles. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jan 15, 2012

    There are definitely some missteps in this opening issue, but I feel that Whispers #1 was a success in spite of those problems. Luna takes some risks here, and while they don't all pay off, I appreciate that he's trying something different from the norm. It wasn't perfect, but I will give issue #2 a chance. Read Full Review
