Ghost Projekt #3

Written by Joe Harris

This slightly odd post-Soviet supernatural bioweapons story is moving along very nicely.  This time around, we learn a lot more about Konstantin, who has been set up as the villain of the story, and we learn a little more about the Militsiya inspector who has been assigned to work with Will.

I like how so many seemingly disparate threads - the Mongols, the hypnotism using folk dolls - are starting to come together to give the narrative structure.  This is a very well paced comic.

The story has been pretty cool, but it is frequently upstaged by Rolston's wonderful pencils.  He should be doing a lot more comics work, and would do wonderfully on an off-beat superhero title (something like Birds of Prey I think).
