Brody's Ghost is a graphic novel series centered around a sad man named Brody who finds out he can see ghosts (hence the title...). After a bad breakup with his girlfriend, Nicole, he lets his life get into ruin, until one day, while he is on the sidewalk busking for change, he sees a ghost. Later on, he finds out the ghost is named Talia, and she has a mission for him. She introduces him to an unusual mentor that helps him get his life back into shape and gives him purpose in the world.

Mark Crilley is one of my favorite artists of all time, I follow his YouTube channel rather closely and have for some time.

And his artwork in this first volume does not disappoint. I must say, that his city scapes and his design for Talia is fantastic - I deeply admire his work (and his humor, if you watch his videos you'll understand).

Even though the main two characters, Talia and Brody (Talia especially), have rather sad stories, the novel isn't super intense with batting at your feels - which
*Talia needs Brody to straighten up and figure out his psychic powers so that she can move onto heaven. Brody needs this so he can get the reward and move on with his life. He doesn't realize what he is signing onto when he says he'll train, but soon something bigger than just helping Talia is in his hands.

This was an intricate graphic novel though it was easy to read because the story flowed very well.

What a cliff hanger ending! I got this collection of Volume 1 and 2 at my book fair, but I m

Very well paced & excellent art. You forget you're even reading a black & white graphic novel.

Mark Crilley does a fantastic job using the graphic novel medium to tell an entertaining & compelling story.

Possibly the best-executed graphic novel I've read this year.

Highly recommended.

I really really enjoyed these first two volumes. I have been wanting to read this since they came out but only got around to it just now. I'm super excited for the next book, especially with that cliffhanger ending!
