Review by Tom Barnett
Ghosted 3 picks up with the ghost hunters needing to steal an ancient mask from, Markus Schrecken, the man who hired them to steal a ghost. In the opening dialogue between main protagonist Jackson T. Winters and Schrecken we learn that Winters is not a character to be fully trusted. As a matter of fact, writer Joshua Williamson has set this whole story up in a way that, the reader can’t trust anyone, maybe even Williamson! That’s part of the appeal in this crime ghost story. All of these characters are out for themselves and each has secrets they are hiding!
Williamson gives us a couple of twists in this issue and a very creepy woman in red scene, that probably holds the key to everything going on in this series. He gets no small amount of help in making this a creepy ghost story by the artwork of Goran Sudzuka. Great haunted house details and excellent facial expressions bring this story to life. I particularly enjoyed the menacing expression on Schrecken’s face when talking with Winters early in the book.
Colorist Miroslav Mrva does an outstanding job in giving each scene it’s own feel through the use of color. And Rus Wooten is an excellent letterer. He keeps the text clean and doesn’t go overboard on his use of bolding words.
Ghosted is a solid and fun story being done by creative folks at the top of their game. This book won’t disappoint.
