Synopsis: “You’re not the only ones who lost their family to these monsters.” So says Space Ghost to the Widow, a powerful potential ally for the Ghost crew in their campaign against the evil Robo-Corp.

Although the Widow’s motivations remain shrouded in mystery, Space Ghost, Jan, and Jace decide to roll the dice and bring her in on their mission to take down Robo-Corp once and for all. But which side will this shadowy figure ultimately decide to help — and which will she try to destroy?

 

The Story

Space Ghost and his new friends have been fighting against Robo Corps and trying to find answers for months and have nothing to show for it. However, when they get an offer of help from Widow, a female crime boss with the power to manipulate plants. They find themselves hoping that things will turn out well and they will get their answers. However, it soon becomes apparent that things are not as they seem.

 

Artwork

Jonathan Lau and  Andrew Dalhouse do some solid work with the art for this book. I loved the character drawing for Widow, which is a combination of the wicked queen from Snow White and Supreme Commander Servalan from the British SciFi Series Blake’s 7. Widow has an aristocratic look to her and carries herself in such a way that she is above everyone that she encounters and the art team captured that attitude brilliantly.

The imagery of Space Ghost and Jace ensnared by Widow’s plants is brilliantly presented, but the best is saved for the final page where we see Widow hoisted by her own plants. 

 

Overall

David Pepose continues to capture the spirit and adventure of the old Space Ghost cartoon series while adding some nice modern touches to the characters. I loved the various exchanges of dialogue between Ghost and Widow when she was telling him her plan. But the best dialogue comes when we see Widow trying to tempt Jan into joining her.

Overall. A fantastic book that continues to entertain.
