Ghost poster by Alex Ross

31 Jul

This is a scan of a Dark Horse Comics mini poster by the legendary Alex Ross. I love this image specifically because of Elisa Cameron’s face. Look at those eyes! Great color choice, Alex.

It sounds like there is more Ghost on the horizon. At the Comic-Con, I talked to Patrick Thorpe, the Dark Horse Comics editor for the book, and he says to watch for new projects in the near future.

Ghost is a great character. Her history alone is intriguing; Ghost comes back from the afterlife as a gun-toting apparition seeking to fight crime while working to resolve the mysteries surrounding her death. The mystical and criminal elements throughout give the book a wide range of story-telling opportunities (and there is a wicked cool character named Cameron Nemo that was a partial inspiration for my Comics A-Go-Go “The Devil You Say” signature banner). I think she’s a strong female character that doesn’t suffer from the easy characterizations you get with other female heroes/villains in comics. Fortunately, Ghost has had the advantage of getting good writing and illustrating teams.

And here’s your bonus. I first Alex Ross after he and Kurt Busiek launched the ground-breaking Marvels series. He was far more accessible back then and he was eager to chat up his role in painting the books. He is astonishingly good in my book. This is a scan of a promo bookmark from Comic-Con.

    Was it Kingdom Come or Marvels that was his first? Marvels, right?
