Richard Dreyfuss and Susan Anspach star in THE BIG FIX, directed by Jeremy Kagan for Universal Pictures.

Ghosted 2 (August 2013)

Ghosted02 coverWhat the heck is this thing? I suppose the original material is good, but there’s not very much of it. Most of the issue reads like a recap of the last one. Williamson goes over all his characters and their particular skills, which is beyond redundant.

He’s got a great built in structure for the issue–the ghost hunters have to be out of the haunted house by sundown–and he doesn’t use it. He only has one scene with any character development. Then he throws little road blocks in the protagonist’s way and deals with them immediately afterwards. Little might not even be the right description. Minute.

The Sudzuka art keeps Ghosted worth a look, but Williamson doesn’t give him much to do. The haunted house stuff, the flashbacks, it’s all implied. Sudzuka can clearly draw people walking around. Don’t need to see it over and over.

It’s middling.

    This issue was a sure misfire. After the nicely paced first one that succeeded in grabbing me for the second, it comes off as a place filler. Hoping he’ll pick it up by three or it’s going to be all Sudzuka, and that won’t work very long.
