CM Podcast 273 – Ghost Tree (2019 comic)

Last week, we covered the 2020 Eisner Award Nominees and Winners. In the category of Best Limited Series, Writer Bobby Curnow and Artist Simon Gane were nominated for Ghost Tree. I recently purchased the trade for Ghost Tree so I thought it would be a great time to cover it.

The podcast for this week will be Ghost Tree by Bobby Curnow and Simon Gane with colors by Ian Herring. The comic was published by IDW Publishing. It originally came out in 2019.

I was not familiar with Bobby Curnow’s writing before Ghost Tree. I found out that he has worked on other IDW books like My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This is my first time reading his work and I hope he puts out many more books like this.

I was already familiar with Simon Gane’s work. I was reading a comic called They’re Not Like Us from Image that he was working on. That was a great book and the art really sold it for me. I was looking forward to see what he was going to do with Ghost Tree.

Ghost Tree on the surface is a tale about ghosts and the 2 men that have the ability to communicate with them. Below the surface, you get a story about relationships and what you have to do to make them work. Jon and I really like this miniseries and we highly recommend that you pick it up.

***Minor Spoiler Alert*** – we talk about some plot points but we did not give away the major revelations in the comics so it is fairly spoiler free.
