Editorial Reviews

[The New Ghost is] metaphorical, with the end result more important than answering our questions about origins or motivations.-Comics Worth Reading I know this book will be spending a lot of time in my hands. It's perfect for rainy-day reading and just the sort of still, calming mix of word and image that one needs before falling asleep. Give yourself the pleasures of holding this book in your hands and of being able to pick it up again and again. Your world will be the richer for it.-What If Knits Robert Hunter is a trained illustrator who worked with the small-press publisher Nobrow Press to create 'The New Ghost.' It's a gorgeous piece that plays with color and panel structure. It's an original story, told well, but the best and most unique thing about it is the highly saturated and beautiful artwork.?Indie Reader Rob Hunter's art runs against many of the strong currents in the worlds of comics. I know tons of comics that are tough, gritty, funny, gross, goofy, dark, trippy, dystopian, complex, satirical. These aren't bad things at all, but how often do you come across a comic that's light as air, dreamy and poetic?-Squidface & The Meddler I know this book will be spending a lot of time in my hands.
