The artwork is very good and the colors work well with the drawings.
Book Sake
On one hand, it's a fun ride filled with violence and melodrama, but on the other it just doesn't feel too terribly original.
Mel Odom
I will be buying the next volume ASAP and can't wait to see what happens next.

This guy Spaw- er, I mean, Haunt, may be the ickiest superhero this side of Arm-Fall-Off-Boy. Urban fanboy legend suggests that, once upon a time, Todd McFarlane was guest speaking at this or that convention when Robert Kirkman, who was in the audience, engaged him in Q&A, and that McFarlane asked Kirkman to collaborate with him on a project. This is, of course, after someone pointed out to Todd that that particular audience member was comic book writer Robert Kirkman.(I don't think I'm too impressed with Todd McFarlane). Anyway, the result is HAUNT, perhaps Kirkman's least inspired effort. The same could be said regarding Ryan Ottley's artistic contribution here. Maybe they feel the same way as I do about McFarlane.

Because Catholic priests simply don't garner enough awful press, one of the two central characters is Daniel Kilgore, an unsavory priest who steals money from his church to pay for the hooker he visits regularly. That's nice... Daniel has a brother, Kurt, and they've been estranged for some time now, and we learn the why of it later. Kurt is a secret agent and a stone cold killer and I find him more likable than the priest, and, oh yes, Kurt cheats on his wife. When Kurt is murdered during a mission, his spirit gets tangled up with Daniel's body, and Daniel suddenly can see and speak with Kurt's ghost. And, when endangered, Daniel and Kurt can somehow form the gross goo-armored entity called Haunt (although, come to think of it, I don't recall any of the characters calling him "Haunt"). Haunt excretes a gooey substance which enables him to stick to walls. The same substance can harden into vicious cutting, hacking, piercing tools. Haunt is not a pretty picture.

But he's certainly effective... and needed.

I am a Spawn fan, I have been for many years because I love the anti superhero that get dirty when it comes to saving the day. I don't read much other comics besides Spawn because I read more novels with my time. I just recently heard of Haunt because I have been out of the loop for a couple years. So I picked up the Haunt Volume 1 to give it a try because I am a fan of McFarlane and Kirkman because of the Walking Dead. I just finished this volume and from my perspective, I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. I really like how the brothers communicate with each other, to me that makes the story. The drawing to me are hands down great, typical Todd McFarlane product. I will be buying the next volume ASAP and can't wait to see what happens next.

I really can't say anything bad about the first volume of Haunt from Image comics except that it's too short & ends just when it's staring to get somewhat interesting. But other than that Robert Kirkman strives to infuse new blood into the medium with new characters with assistance from Todd McFarlane & Greg Capullo. It's a fair mix of action, violence, & covert operation politics that might seem reminiscent of the early Spawn books but overall Haunt is it's own beast & this is a good thing.

Not an avid comic book guy but I loved this! I felt like it was a mix between Spider-Man and Spawn.
Warning: Lots of violence and language.

Haunt is pretty good, not amazing, but it's definitely a good, solid read. I'm a fan of Robert Kirkman from his work on The Walking Dead and as said in another review, I'm a huge fan of Greg Capullo's work, so this one definitely peaked my interest. I'd say that the first 3 volumes of Haunt are solid, they tell a good story that keeps you fairly engaged, and the artwork is great. Capullo almost reminds me of Humberto Ramos, who currently illustrates Superior Spider-man, on this title.. But still sticks to his style. Haunt is like a combination of Spider-man and Spawn, so if that is what you're into, definitely pick it up. I have heard that after volume 3 they switched the creative team to a different writer and artist, and I heard that it sort of falls of and isn't nearly as good, so I can only speak for the first 3 graphic novels.

Even though there are a lot of similarities with Spawn, the development of the characters is interesting. The drawing is also first class.

I have been wanting to read Haunt for a while now, its been some years since it first came out (halloween 09, I remember) but I never gave myself a chance to get it. Now on paperback, Haunt collects the first 5 issues of this new and rather dark character.
First off I gotta give it to the artists, the art in this comic is superb, remeniscent of spawn and other mcfarlane comics but never the less amazing. Yes it is graphic and violent, but I don't know what else would you expect from these guys.
The story is quite outstanding and a bit tangling, nothing too complicated tho, it's easy to get a hold of everything happening in the panels and it is actually a very intriguing story, makes you wanna keep reading.
As far as as characterization goes, it might be a little less than original, think of Spawn meets Venom, but that doesn't mean Haunt falls short, this character is defenetly worth reading.

I have declared myself a fan of Haunt with this statement and look forward to keep reading his series. Good stuff.
