Ghosted 7 (February 2014)

Ghosted #7

Trick is okay. I’m a little surprised, since he sort of ominously disappeared for a bit last issue. He’s in sidekick role, self-proclaimed dirty old man to Jackson’s more sympathetic narrator.

Williamson gives the issue a speedy pace. It’s maybe three or four different sequences set in the same night. But there’s something too speedy about it. Williamson forecasts the cliffhanger too early. Not the exact details of it, but how he’s going to use it. Hard cliffhanger, just after Jackson has discovered a big detail in the story arc.

It’s too bad the comic gets predictable for the last few pages, because, otherwise, Williamson’s pacing is good–pulp, ghosts and action all play a part. There’s even a flashback to some mystery woman. I’d forgotten Williamson might want to develop Jackson a bit more; even though the character narrates, he’s distant.

The issue meanders, which is a shame.
