Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
This issue ranged from awesome to just kinda okay. The flashback and death scenes looked so beautiful. But then there were some in present day where there was just too much white and texture to where it kinda became blurry. But have no fear the great out weighs the bad here. This book looks fantastic and I love the style.

Story: 4.2 out of 5
The story in this issue is really good. It does what a first issue should. Character introduction, back story and a nice ending to make you want more. SOLD! I really enjoyed reading this one. I like the idea too of taking one of the Ghost Hunter like shows and giving it a twist like this. Very cool!

Dying Breath: 4.1 out of 5
This book has the winning combination. Great story, fantastic artwork and it’s all done by the same person! I look forward to what this series brings to the table with only 3 issues and I am really looking forward to what other great stuff Jay Carvajal will do in the future.
