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

Ghosted 5 (November 2013)

Ghosted 005Williamson does the heist movie thing where he reveals all the double crosses and hidden machinations to allow the good guys to beat the mark. Because he’s doing it in a comic, it doesn’t work. There’s no way for him to do a smooth montage. Instead he’s got a lot of forced, awkward exposition.

Other than the big reveal, he paces the issue rather well. He gets through the cliffhanger resolution, gets through some plans of attack, makes one minor reveal, makes the major one, deals with fallout on scene, moves on to the next location–he really does get a lot done here. He never lets the issue slow down until the last scene,

Sadly, Sudzuka has some really weak panels in this issue. Something about the expressions escaped him. They’re so bad they can slow the reading.

Ghosted has its share of problems, but it’s a decent comic.
