Comments to eBook Ghost Omnibus, Vol. 1
Sarin
So I'm very torn on this book (and this review applies to all of the Omnibuses, 1-5). I remember picking up the very first issues of this back in the early 90s and this was the one character book that really jumped out at me, and not just for the obvious aesthetic reasons. Ghost was the most compelling and felt the most original, particularly when placed alongside some of those released around her: Barb Wire and X.

The book itself has a laudable goal (or so it seems without actually knowing Luke's intentions): to open the eyes of its readers to the treatment of women in the real world as well as on the page, tackling their objectification, the violence perpetrated against them, the way men don't see it and often end up contributing to it without realizing that they are. All while also being a superhero book.

For many readers, though, these stories may be betrayed by the fact that the main character is herself objectified by the writer and artist, though I got the distinct impression that was on purpose, as part of the message. And it works. You could look past the message and just enjoy the stories, but there are broader, deeper messages there if you decide to go looking (arguably some can't be missed). It can be a bit preachy, ham-fisted, and at times it seems to betray its own message. I don't think that detracts from what I see as the ambitious goal of the series, however.

Most of it is very much early to mid 90s art, and it's not quite up to modern standards (to the point where a lot of what is intended to be sexy is laughably stupid-looking or just plain uncomfortable), but for a young comic company branching out into superheroes, it was a good start, even if upstaged by Image at the time.

Ghost is adventurous and fun, but seems like it remains a love-or-hate proposition for most readers. There is no guarantee how you'll react either as a feminist or an MRA or anything in between. But make no mistake, this book is trying to be more than just a superhero book laced with no small amount of T&A: it's trying to say something important. Whether it succeeds probably depends largely on the reader.
Hidden Winter
This is such a mixed comic book, and it is not as good as I remember. In the superhero wars between Vertigo, early Image, and Dark Horse, Dark Horse was often the odd man out. Launching its Heroes (originally, with a tinge of hubris, World's Greatest Comics), Dark Horse moved away purely from indie titles (The Mask, Grendel) and franchise comics (Predator, Terminator, etc) and into competition with super hero comics. This created Barbed Wire, X, and Ghost. Ghost was one of the more original: a take on objectifying women that seemed to be aware that it was guilty of what it is critiquing. A superhero who was primarily dead, and villains who were primarily misogynistic. Yet it for its meta-quality, and its original premise, it was hampered by lack of world developed and seeming random overlaps with other titles in the Dark Horse Heroes line.

Ghost's premise has sparks of brilliance and the art is sometimes quite good, but the actual plotting gets convoluted. Outside of Elisa Cameron--and perhaps a lesser degree her sister Margo--character motivations are completely lacking, especially for the villains. The backstory has hints of the profundity of an after-school-special from the time period. The cross-overs with X and Barbed Wire often don't make sense, and many of the plotlines end in dues ex machinas or a lack of coherent rules for the character.

It also feels very dated (too much early and mid-90s tropes), and while its exploration of female objectification seems sincere, the character also doesn't really feel like a (formerly) living woman. It other words, you can tell it is was written by a male writer. Overall, it was ambitious and different: it's relaunch does much more with the premise in a mature matter. It is, however, in main, enjoyable like a B-movie that has ambition beyond its execution. If you enjoyed when you read it as a kid, read it again with adult eyes. You will probably find parts of it laughably bad, but there are a few flashes in it that make it enjoyable by the end.
Lo◘Ve
I really like this series. The artwork is sometimes amateurish and ugly, especially on some of the male characters, but since Elisa hates men, maybe that is fitting? I wasn't quite sure if the issues in this omnibus were issues 1,2,3, etc in the series. They seemed mostly disconnected, and secondary characters don't get much of a chance to develop. I did enjoy the appearance of Barb Wire, though.

What could've improved this omnibus: issue numbers next to the titles on the table of contents, and a cover art gallery at the back of the book. Some of the covers really were stunningly beautiful. The artwork on this cover was taken from the 1995 tpb "Ghost Stories", and is still gorgeous.

I'm hoping volume 2 will be better and tie up the loose ends (for both Elisa and us, the readers).
