Ghosts had a good TNG story written by Zander Cannon. It felt like a good two-part episode from the series. The story was interesting enough to keep me engaged even with some disappointing art. Can't say whether it was the pencils or the inks that caused the issues, but many of the faces were overdone. And to be sure, the frames were boring and unimaginative. The story saved this book.

A pretty poor effort. The story's verbose and lacks a strong hook, and the art gets pretty muddled the further you go along (and there are *far* too many shadows). Also, what's up with everyone saying "countrymen"?

Story was okay. Dragged in places, and characterization was off. Artwork really let this down. Main cast looked nothing like they should, especially Deanna. And the weird attempts at shadows looked more like random dirt and grime streaks and background ink blots. Really distracting.

I love having more adventures with my wonderful Next Generation crew that I know and love so well! Just plan enjoyable on many levels!

Stopped halfway through. Boring story, terrible characterization, and the art was inconsistent and generally unpleasant to look at.

A fun story. It matched the tempo of the show and made me want to pull up Netflix to watch some reruns. Good stuff.

Not bad at all, but the story does seem to drag a little in places. Excellent artwork. What I really liked about this book is that it's almost like watching a long lost episode. It seems to me that lots of times in the comic format (& ST comics don't always seem to be an exception to the rule) action sequences appear for merely action's sake. This doesn't happen in this story, & I liked that. I mean yeah of course if the story calls for some action then by all means yes let's see some ac ...more

Here’s a completely delightful “missing episode” from the fourth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. “Ghosts” captures the tone of that point in the series perfectly, offering a politically intriguing and anthropologically fueled story about peace negotiations on an exotic world in conflict. This is smart, stylish, complex and surprising storytelling, and as such is sure to appeal to any Star Trek fan.

It has been a long time, since I have read a graphic novel. I like the Star Trek The Next Generation TV series, but have not the opportunity to read any of the books. It was good to revisit old friends and see them from another perspective. The graphics were well done and the story line was very interesting.

The storyline was interesting enough, though maybe not completely brilliant. The artwork was basic at times, with only some of the depictions accurately representing the actors. Some of the formatting made it difficult to follow and I had to re-read portions.

I'm a big Star Trek fan, and TNG is a fave. I enjoyed this story, The artwork is well done, and the wruter knows his 'trek'. Good stuff!

A bit of a ponderous story and some of the characterizations are way off.
I do wonder if the artist had a vendetta against poor Marina Sirtis as Deanna looks nothing like her.
