One morning before the break of dawn, Tom sees an anomaly through the lens of his telescope; a spectral form drop from the sky in mid-flight only to land in a field nearby.

"Robert Hunter is a trained illustrator who worked with the small-press publisher Nobrow Press to create "The New Ghost." It's a gorgeous piece that plays with color and panel structure. It's an original story, told well, but the best and most unique thing about it is the highly saturated and beautiful artwork."-Sarah Morean, Indie Reader.com
"It's always nice to see experiments in cartooning though, particularly when they come out this polished and readable."-Sarah Morean, Indie Reader.com
"The New Ghost" is a lovely book and a real achievement for its author and printer."-Sarah Morean, Indie Reader.com
