Among the comics on sale tomorrow, Ghost #1, an ongoing continuation of the mini-series from a year ago. The creative team includes writers Kelly Sue DeConnick and Chris Sebela with artist Ryan Sook, so it looks very nice indeed. The first issue has a cover by Terry Dodson and an variant by Paolo Rivera.
Ghost is one of Dark Horse’s signature superhero characters first appearing in the 80s—a pulpy tale about a reporter, Elisa Cameron, who is killed when she gets a little to close to the truth, and then comes back to fight crime. The title came back itself earlier last year with a mini series by DeConnick and Phil Noto, and now it’s a regular thing. The blurb for the first issue is as follows:
Ghost, the hero trapped between two worlds, fights to protect Chicago from extradimensional demons disguised as humans. When a familiar stranger destroys an el train, Ghost makes a deal with a devil for the chance to uncover her own mysterious past. The perfect issue to join this action-packed superhero title.
