It is Kirkman's belief that good people who produce good writing and good ideas make comics people love. Kirkman was recently made partner at Image Comics, and continues to revive the industry with refreshing new characters. AMC is adapting his bestselling series, The Walking Dead, into a TV series (set to debut in October 2010), and his books are among the most popular on the iPhone and iPad's "Comics" app.

Anyways, the story and art are good.
Robert Attaway
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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Lets get this thing right off the bat-- this is in no way a Spiderman rip off, or a Spawn rip off. It's actually its own being-- That's why it's beautiful. I grew up reading Spawn from my brothers back issue collection before he had to sell'im. I searched for this issues and have done pretty good only needing issue five now of Spawn. When I heard that Robert Kirkman-- The man who has inspired me to write comics-- mostly famous for "TWD" now, but I love his "Invincible" before anything else.-- was going to do a new title with McFarlene, I couldn't help but feel the need to squeal like a school girl. I saw promo images and constantly waited-- then I heard McFarlene was backing out of pencils as was laying inks-- I got a little pissed. But then I heard Capullo(A true director of comics) was laying it out, and Ryan "Invincible" Ottley was doing the pencils I stayed. I have every issue of the series to date-- as I collected it. It's often compared to Spawn, but I do feel that it is the Spawn of my generation. The pacing of the first book is fast, and it does have a lot of moments where you feel bittersweet-- but It was a well worthy read. The paperback is actually a pretty strong binding, and I love that McFarlene has total control over his products. This is a good start for anybody looking to get away from the conventional hero book.

Format: Paperback
Robert Kirkman seems determined to take over the comics world. Based on his latest successes, that could be possible. His comics series The Walking Dead is basically a soap opera with zombies that keeps readers hanging on by their fingernails from month to month, and is now going to be a television series as well as a prose novel series. He's also rewritten some of the comics mythos with Invincible, which turns some of the superhero tropes on their ears and kicks them in the butt to provide some necessary (arguable in several comics shops) changes.

In Haunt, authors Robert Kirkman and Todd McFarlane offer up a fresh and twisted take on supernatural superheroes. At least, I think Haunt is a superhero tale. It might just be a monster story where the monster ultimately ends up doing some good. I haven't decided exactly how that's shaping up. Oh, and there's a lot of spy stuff thrown in too.

Kirkman is known for not pulling punches in his stories, and he doesn't pull any in this origin arc either. McFarlane (Spawn) leans toward the hard-hitting and gritty himself. As a result, this comics series is definitely not one I'd recommend to youngsters. Not only is there lots of graphic violence, but the themes are adult as well.

So with the audience defined, I'll say that the story is pretty intense and gripping. Nothing terribly original stands out in the series, though. Comics have been filled with characters haunted by ghosts that made them into something more than human (Spectre, Brother Voodoo), so that riff - though certainly not played out - has been around.

Another thing that bothers me is the stuff Haunt is constantly shooting around. I'm still not sure if it is ectoplasm or what, but it certainly reminds me of Spider-Man's webbing.
