Although I’ve long been aware of the character, this is the first Ghost story (heh) I’ve ever read. And it’s a good one.

Written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Chris Sebela, and penciled by the stellar Ryan Sook, Ghost #1 introduces the character to new readers in a way that won’t bore long-time ones.

Ghost’s (aka Elisa Cameron) mission is to purge demons from their human hosts, and then dispense with them. Unfortunately, this means that the human hosts also perish, a fact which while troubling for Elisa, was also something she could work through. Until now.

While all this is going on, the police are investigating a serial killer on the loose. Is he too, a demon? The cops don’t think so. Either way, you know that Ghost is destined to face him. Or her.

And as if that weren’t enough plot, were also introduced to the popular device of enemies joining forces, in a way that makes you want the next issue immediately.

All this for $2.99 — which is a pretty good deal, nowadays.
