Issue #9 is being heralded as a great jumping-on point, and I have to agree. What happens when this righteous ecto-basher regains the memories of her life and who she was? And, how does that now gel into who she has become?
I dig the ideas being brought up in this book, it’s always interesting seeing someone dealing with (excuse the phrase) demons of their past and present colliding, and there’s a deft hand at handling that here. We’re treated to a woman who’s really wrestling with what it’s like to be confronted with herself in such a visceral way. I don’t know who Ghost was prior to this issue, but what we see on the page now is a fleshed-out (Okay, I promise I’ll stop.) individual who has to come to grips with two disparate realities
This feels like a great point to jump into the series, and I’m interested in seeing where this existential dilemma ends up. Can Elisa be at once the woman she was and the entity she is now? What can stay the same, and what will she have to give up?
