Batman and Ghost



Erik Luke's creation, Ghost, is an interesting concept that has clearly struck a chord with other creators.  Looking over the issues she has appeared in, the artist line up is filled with some of the best in the business today.  Talents like Adam Hughes, Lee Moder, Dave Bullock, John Cassiday, Ivan Reis, Goug Braithwaite and Terry Dodson have all graced the pages of Ghost.  I can't blame them either, she has one of the cooler designs that I have seen for a comics character and it's cool to see so many top illustrators depictions of her.

This is a very cool cover. The setup looks a bit like one of the early covers for Cloak & Dagger. It also is a quite compelling story idea; it would pique the interest of even someone not much into these two characters.

Now if only we could see Ghost team up with Deadman....

I only have the Ghost one-shot and original trade paperback - that I really should read more often. Maybe a few scattered issues of the regular series.

I like Ghost. If i were launching an inter-company team-up book, I would pick Batman, The Thing and Ghost to anchor it.

What might be cool is a Ghost team-up with Young Justice or Scooby Doo...

Excuse me, now, while I go re-read my Ghost issues...

@Anonymous: Ghost was one of the original characters from Dark Horse's "Comics Greatest World" imprint, c.1993, along with X, Catalyst and others. She and X were really the only long term successes and they've both been revived in the last year. If you want to catch up on comics without having to buy fifty one-shots for every sunner 'event' story, then pound-for-pound and penny-for-penny your best bet is to scare up back issues of the new Dark Horse Presents. It's about thirty issues so far, 80+ pages and no ads for $8 cover. Sometimes they bump it up to 100 pages at the same price. They've had Neal Adams, Richard Corben, Harlan Ellison, Howard Chaykin, Mike Mignola, Evan Dorkin and other established artists and characters alongside new creators and features. It's been criminally underexposed but I would never miss it.

Ghost did team up with Cassie Cain/Batgirl for a 4-issue Mini back in 2000 :)
