    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 3, 2012

    Ghosts #1 keeps up a long tradition of scary DC (which, though similar phonetically, is not the same as scary EC), smacking me in the head for missing it in the Previews catalog, earning an overwhelming 5 out of 5 stars overall. Don't let the price tag scare you, this book is worth every penny, and it more than triple-sized in terms of reading pleasure. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 5, 2012

    If you want to have an anthology, this is the way to do it. There are stories of every kind from every angle and more likely than not, you'll at least appreciate all of them, some more than others. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Nov 1, 2012

    From a variety of writers and artists, each twisted tale in “Ghosts” #1 gets better and better. Each ghost story encourages the reader to keep going, never giving them a chance to put the comic down. A great step in quality and quantity, there's lots of great stuff in here. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Sep 16, 2016

    There's a lot to identify with in "Ghosts": a sick loved one, a new home, a family tradition. By giving her characters such specific interactions and situations, Raina Telgemeier has opened her book up for a more universal experience. She takes on a dark and grim subject matter and is not only frank about the realities of it but also makes it far more comprehensible and comforting. Her characters are relatable and empathetic, her cartooning's assured and more confident. It's easy to get wrapped up and invested in these worlds she's creating. Read Full Review

    Yes, $8 is lot to ask for any comic, but Ghosts offers a wealth of content, and quality content at that. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Nick Verissimo Oct 31, 2012

    The other stories range from campy, to emotional, endearing and humourous, but that Joe Kubert is really worth forking over the money for this anthology.  It feels like one of the most honest and genuine stories Ive read in a while and does come from a real place.  While I may have said that you could pass on this book if you arent in the Halloween mood, it is probably worth reading or taking a look at if youve ever appreciated Kubert or want a piece of one of his last works.

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Nov 2, 2012

    Perhaps the one adjective that could best describe this Vertigo anthology is “clever.” All but a couple of the stories in this book do something unique and thoughtful, and execute it well. $7.99 is a lot to cough up for one book, but at 70 pages, it's a nicer deal than most of DC's books that are “holding the line.” Fans of Vertigo both new and old are sure to enjoy this anthology, as are those who want something a little unexpected from their weekly comics haul.

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Nov 1, 2012

    I enjoyed 5 out of 9 stories, which isn’t too bad and at a hefty cover price of 7.99$, it was definitely a gamble. Some stories were hot, others were not, but in the end, it was worth it. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Nov 4, 2012

    Of course, Neil Gaiman's The Dead Boy Detectives star in a story by Toby Litt with layouts by Mark Buckingham (Fables), and the various styles from dark to cartoony make this one of the book's centrepieces. It will continue on in the next Vertigo anthology, whenever that may be. We just hope we don't have to wait another year! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Nov 5, 2012

    Overall, none of the nine stories in "Ghosts" #1 are enjoyably frightening or particularly memorable. The $7.99 cover price is a lot to pay, especially since "Ghosts" #1 isn't perfect-bound. Fans of particular creators or completists will enjoy some of these tidbits, but it's a mediocre anthology. Read Full Review
