If you’re reading Dark Horse Presents right now, then you’ve already gotten a taste for the wonderful revival of Ghost thanks to Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Noto. Dusting off one of the best characters from Dark Horse’s earlier days, DeConnick and Noto have made Ghost one of those series to watch for. Well the wait is over and we were delighted when Dark Horse sent over to us the exclusive look at the covers to Ghost #1 available this October.
First up we have a wonderful cover by series artist Phil Noto, who if you’re a regular reader of iFanboy and our Weekly Sketch Up, you know Noto is one of our favorites and one of the best artists currently in the comics game. Second we’ve got the ultra exlusive variant cover for Ghost #1, by none other than Alex Ross, who rose to prominence in the 1990s when Ghost was originally launched. This cover will only be available to retailers who attend the San Diego Comic-Con retailers summit and will be available in an oversized litho format.
The Variant cover is only going to be available to retailers who attend the San Diego Comic-Con summit in a large litho format. Super exclusive sexy stuff.
We’ve got the covers below, along with the solicitation info for Ghost #1, along with the next volume of the Ghost Omnibus, which collects all that wonderful archive material in a handy smaller format and it’s got some top talent including John Cassaday and Ivan Reis! Both books go on sale in October!

If you don’t believe that life is tough when you’re dead, ask the spectral avenger Ghost.
