Graphic Novel: The Phantom on the Scan by Cullen Bunn

Title: Phantom on the Scan
Author: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Mark Torres
Letterer: Dave Sharpe
Genre: Horror; Graphic Novel
Publication Date: December 14, 2021
Publisher: Aftershock Comics

Twenty years ago, a comet fell to earth. Since that night, Matthew has been haunted – haunted by a spirit that gives him incredible psychic abilities. But these abilities come with a price…and payment is due.

Every time Matthew uses his gifts, he draws closer to death, and other psychics – all of whom gained their powers on the night the comet fell – are dying in the most horrible of ways. To save himself, Matthew gathers a group of psychics to solve the mystery of their powers before it’s too late.

A new dimension of horror brought to light by master storyteller Cullen Bunn (DARK ARK, UNHOLY GRAIL, BROTHERS DRACUL, PIECEMEAL) and illustrated by Mark Torres (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Judge Dredd, The Shrinking Man), the team responsible for the psychological terror thriller, Cold Spots.

Hello Fellow Readers,

The premise for Phantom on the Scan is interesting and I was pretty hooked on the story, in the beginning. Like Matthew and the others I wanted to know what was going on. Unfortunately, as the plot developed I realized what was going on and what was going to happen I couldn't help but be disappointed . The ending just fell flat and some of the characters felt like they were only put into the plot to die in some horrible way. I will say that I actually liked the art style. I feel like it really suits the theme of the story. I do wish it was longer and that the side characters actually had a chance to shine.

Overall, an okay graphic novel
