Reader’s Notes:

With “Ivory Ghosts” only having four issues I was trying to pace myself. I don’t want to get through it too quickly and have the series come to a close. For the wait between the second and third installments I managed to hold out for almost four weeks.

Readers love books that have “the gotta”. That’s where they’ve “gotta find out what happens next”. “Ivory Ghosts” has plenty of it starting from the very first issue and it just keeps going. We get more intrigue as we learn just how many officials are involved in the poaching ring. The action is in smaller spurts; but the level of danger is higher. 

We’re getting to know some of the characters better. It helps allow for readers to dislike some of the officials even more. I’d still like to learn more about Catherine. She’s a badass that survived situations that would leave mere mortals making deals with God; but we still don’t know much about her.

Debora Carita is putting on a clinic with “Ivory Ghosts”. The covers have been magnificent. The artwork on the interior pages has been so vivid that it pulls the reader into Central Africa. I loved the work when we were in the river. It set the tone for the entire issue. 

As a geek on a budget I am all in on “Ivory Ghosts”. Through three issues it has been a sensational ride. I’m very eager to see where this thrilling adventure takes us next!

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
