Artist Jenny Frison has become a favorite of readers and editors alike for her typically spooky and frequently alluring cover illustrations for such comic books as DC Comics’ I, Vampire, Image’s Hack/Slash and IDW Publishing’s Angel. Such a repertoire makes Frison the (super)natural choice as the face of Ghost #0, coming this September from Dark Horse. The special issue collects material written by Kelly Sue DeConnick and drawn by Phil Noto that previously appeared in short installments across several issues Dark Horse Presents, making the #0 issue a helpful lead-in to the ongoing Ghost series which begins later in October.
Dark Horse has been killing it with the artwork lately, as demonstrated by the excellent work of Vasilis Lolos on Conan the Barbarian, Max Fiumara on B.P.R.D., Steve Rude on Nexus, Dean Motter on Mister X, and Gilbert Hernandez on Fatima: The Blood Spinners, and many more besides. We continue our art appreciation curriculum with a closer look at the Ghost #0 cover by Jenny Frison, who provides artist commentary on every step of the process.
