The Past and the Future Collide in Ghosted in L.A. #11

The past and the present never stay as separated as we’d like. Not really. That’s a fact about to be proven in Ghosted in L.A. #11. It turns out that even the ghosts can have ghosts—things that truly haunt them, even after all these years.

To make matters worse, there’s still the living to contend with, as well. If that sounds like a lot for one household full of ghosts to deal with, that’s because it is. Yet they’ve held on so far, and one can only assume that they’ll continue.

As with the rest of the series, Ghosted in L.A. #11 was written by Sina Grace. In many ways, it felt like this was the episode that we’ve been waiting for. It’s the culmination of several plots—many of which have been building since that very first issue.

There was something so extremely satisfying about seeing all of that come together, even while dozens of other emotions bubbled to the surface, courtesy of everything happening on the pages. It was emotionally tense, dramatic, and absolutely worth the read.

While this issue did finally begin to answer many questions that have been lingering for some time, it also raised more questions. So once again, we continue onward, hoping, and guessing about what is going to happen next.

One thing is certain—this is a plot far from concluding. There is still more left to this story and the tale of both humans and ghosts that have gotten themselves involved with one another. Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing how they react to all of these new developments.

Art

The artwork inside Ghosted in L.A. #11 is simultaneously beautiful and ethereal, which is actually quite fitting, when you think about it. The flashbacks provided in this issue have a color and style all their own while giving off a deeply disturbing sense to them.

Then there’s everything happening in the present, which was more than enough to keep the artists busy. Siobhan Keenan and Sina Grace were the lead artists, and there’s a lot worth gushing about here. For me, the highlight had to be the multitude of expressions provided on the pages. It enhanced the scenes quite effectively, all while increasing emotional response.

Cathy Le was the colorist for this issue, and the colors truly are divine. I’m still in love with the color palette designed for the ghosts, but it’s more than that, as well. The deep purple backdrop in most of the scenes was lovely, as were several other color choices.

Then there’s the lettering, which was provided by DC Hopkins. I’ve grown really fond of their work, thanks to this series. They’ve done an excellent job, guiding our eyes and making sure we don’t miss the most vital moments.

Conclusion

Ghosted in L.A. #11 is the standout issue of the series—so far. It’s the culmination of months of work, and it shows. For that reason, it is an issue we’ve been waiting for, and it was absolutely worth that wait.

Still, there are plenty of questions to keep readers invested—to keep them wondering what’s going to happen next. It’s going to be an interesting journey from here on out, especially given all of the changes that have occurred.
