Media release — Criminal mastermind Jackson T. Winters has spent the last decade languishing in prison after his last heist went horribly wrong. Now, in return for breaking him out, a rich eccentric tasks him with capturing a ghost for the millionaire’s macabre collection in the new image Comics/Skybound mini-series GHOSTED.
Written by Joshua Williamson and drawn Goran Sdzuka, with Miroslav Mrva on colors and Eisner nominee Sean Phillips (FATALE) offering covers, GHOSTED, set to debut in July, is a dark supernatural mystery crossed with a classic caper. expert thief Winters should assemble a completely different kind of team than the one he lost ten years before, made up of ghost hunters and paranormal experts. but the haunted house they enter may be much more of a match than they’d bargained for.

“For years my obsession has been to do a book that took place in a haunted house; a crime and horror title, one that was fun but went to some dark edgy places,” said writer Williamson. “‘Gritty’ has become a sort of pop word to describe a certain kind of book but it really is the best way to illustrate GHOSTED.”

Williamson isn’t shy about putting his characters’ dark sides on display, either. “One of my favorite things to write are the bad guys. The underbelly of the crime world. Characters that are tortured, and are kind of jerks. Ghosted has plenty of that and has been a blast.”

Williamson spoke about GHOSTED at Comic book resources in March, after the title’s announcement at emerald City Comicon, and at PreviewsWorld. The first issue of the five-issue miniseries is set to go on sale on July 10. It can be pre-ordered now (Diamond Code MAY130405) from the may issue of Previews.
