A group of thieves trying to steal a ghost what could go wrong? Ghosted #5 is the end to the first story arc, and man what a satisfying payoff it was. This issue wrapped up everything from the first arc and still manages to introduce enough story to make the reader wanting more. Within thirty-two pages a lot happened that had me on the edge of my seat. After the events of the last issue I had no idea of where the characters would end up, but just like any other heist story the mastermind had a plan.

I’ve liked Goran Sudzuka since his days on Y: The Last Man and he continues to take my breath away with his style of art. Each panel is full of energy and action which is a great change of pace for this usually word heavy title. This was definitely the artist’s turn to shine and he did not disappoint. Even when the setting changes toward the end of the issue the art stays focused and manages to craft a visually stirring story that had me from start to finish.

The dialogue continues to evoke thoughts of Ocean’s Eleven and Goodfellas which is a good thing. I love the cast of characters and that each one has a unique voice that transcends the words on the page. The conversations and banter are still witty and even throw in a dose of humor here and there. I almost wish the book was longer so I wouldn’t have to stop reading.

Ghosted #5 is a rare title that I’m glad to have read. If this story arc is any indication of things to come this book has more than earned its place on my pull list.

I give Ghosted #5, 5 out of 5 NerdSkulls
