This reprint of the first five (or was it six?) issues of Kirkman & McFarlane's HAUNT was OKAY to read. There were some interesting moments, and it certainly was not the worst comic/ graphic novel I've ever read. However, it didn't exactly set my mind on fire either.

Robert Kirkman is one of the comic industry's hottest writers right now, and it's easy to feel that he has the midas touch when it comes to comics. But HAUNT simply reminded me of too many heroes that already exist (Spiderman, Spawn, Venom, Ghost Rider). The writing and characterization are ok, but a little more originality would have been nice. This volume was adequate reading, but so far, it hasn't driven me to pick up any successive volumes. If you like McFarlane's Spiderman or Spawn, you might like Haunt... Then again, you might just think of Haunt as quick-buck ripoff of those two characters. Probably only a must-have for die-hard McFarlane fans.

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.

I have been expanding my comic book collection over the last year. I am newer to the industry. I own all of the walking dead and Invincible collections, and have read them multiple times. I figured that because of my love of those series, I would see what else Image comics and Kirkman had to offer.

Enter Haunt.

Haunt is a fun read. I thought they did a good enough job getting me into the story and introducing the character. It does feel like I am looking at a superhero that has been introduced to me before in the form of spiderman or spawn, but not enough to make me stop reading.

All in all it was good enough, and I think I will continue to read Haunt, but there are better stories and superheroes out there.

Book Review by Kole
This is a very weird comic. The story itself is good, it's just very unusual. The idea is very unlike other comic book heroes. There is a lot of violence and blood. The artwork is very good and the colors work well with the drawings. Its by the same guy who drew the invincible comics, so I really wanted to read these. I would read the others in the series, but it's not one that I feel the need to read. The story seems like its just going to be repeating itself with a different villain or problem. It is good for those looking for something outside of the normal superhero type comics. Book Rating: 4/5

Book Review by Chris
This book is written by the writer of my favorite comic. It is also drawn by the artist of my favorite comic book. So yeah, I liked it. Those two reasons aren't the only reasons though.

This is an interesting story. It is a supernatural twist on `The Odd Couple'. A priest, low on faith, is being haunted by a black ops soldier. The soldier happens to be his recently dead brother. The brother is also married to the priest's soul mate. If that wasn't enough, the soldier can enter the priest's body. When that happens the priest is encased in this kind of ectoplasmic super suit that can deflect bullets, stick to walls, and form wicked sharp blades. This is good for the priest because he is caught up in a government conspiracy and there are some people trying to kill him. Cool right? Book Rating: 4/5

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.

Haunt...where to start. Well, a couple of the other reviews have done the story so that saves some space.

I like Haunt. Is it original? No, not by a long shot. Is it fun? Yes, and gory too.

Let me reel this in: Haunt is a fun little read because it has three elements that makes any good story; horror, romance, and action. It also has comedy, tragedy, and blood...lots and lots of blood.

The writing is pretty good. I often wondered while reading this, "Where the hell was this Kirkman during The Astounding Wolf-Man Volume 1 (v. 1)?" The characters are well written, hell it seems like Kirkman was having more fun writing this than TSWM...okay, I'm gonna stop this now because if I don't, I'm just going to keep comparing this to TAWM and not get anywhere...

The heroes are intelligent and know how to outwit enemies, while the enemies relish their power and how evil they are. It was one of the few times I've enjoyed reading both sides of the fight from Image.

The art is solid, though Ryan Ottley does seem to be channeling John Romita Jr. a few times. I want to get this out of the way too, McFarlane still has Spiderman on the brain because Haunt does a few of the same moves that ol'Spidey did back when McFarlane was working on him. Does it impact or even stall the story? Nah, it's just noticeable; one of those, "once seen, cannot be unseen," type deals. Overall the art is good with characters having very defining looks and -Haunt has a huge under bite. Try looking at him now and see if you don't see it. I'll wait...

I know, right!

Anyways, the story and art are good. The characters are, as I've said, fun and enjoyable.
