Image Comics Offers Second Chance to get Ghosted


If there's one thing that Image Comics does right--and there's actually a lot of things it does right--it's offering quality titles that fly off the shelves. Just about every series they put out sells out extremely fast, speaking volumes to the book's presentation and story. Ghosted by Joshua Williamson and Goran Sudzuka is another example of that streak, with the first four issues selling out at the distributor level within days of their initial release. Lucky for those who missed them, Image Comics is poised to offer Ghosted, Vol. 1 TPB collecting issues 1-5.

Freshly freed from prison, Jackson Winters is given an offer he won't refuse: steal a ghost and keep his freedom. Winters, one of the greatest thieves in the world, accepts, gathers his team and sets out for the Trask Mansion, home to horrors and haunts. The "merry" adventures will set you back $9.99 when it hits stores on December 4. Final orders are due from retailers on 11/11 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code OCT130488.

Full press release below.

GHOSTED STEALS SPOTLIGHT 
(AND FANS' HEARTS)
Readers can get in on the heist with this specially priced collection


Freshly freed from prison, Jackson Winters is given an offer he won't refuse: steal a ghost and keep his freedom. Winters, one of the greatest thieves in the world, accepts, gathers his team, and sets out for the Trask Mansion, home to horrors and haunts. This is the story of writer Joshua Williamson and artist Goran Sudzuka's GHOSTED, VOL. 1 TP, the inaugural collection of the hit ongoing series, now available for $9.99.

The first four issues of GHOSTED sold out at the distributor level within days of the initial release and garnered early accolades from the media:

"Ghosted is a horror book you need to read because it is horror done right. It’s part caper, part ghost story, and completely hilarious."
-Joshua Yehl, IGN

"Never letting the audience feel completely comfortable trusting any one character, Williamson constructs layers of deception that add to the mystery of the series."
-Sam LeBas, Multiversity Comics

"Artist Goran Sudzuka has an uncanny knack of rendering detail only where needed, without overpowering every panel with minutiae."
-Jim Johnson, Comic Book Resources

"[T]he reason why Ghosted is such a great read each issue is due in large part to some great art and Williamson’s ability to tell a great haunted house story mixed with a heist story–and, well, throwing in all kinds of other twists in there too."
-Matt LeMaire, The MacGuffin

"Ghosted is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. It's a fantastic concept that has really been delivering the past few months."
-Mat Elfring, ComicVine

GHOSTED, VOL. 1 TP, collecting GHOSTED issues #1-5, arrives in stores on 12/4 at a special introductory price of $9.99.

Final orders are due from retailers on 11/11 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code OCT130488.
