When I saw that Berni Wrightson was the artist, I picked this one up. Wrightson was one of the classic horror artists in comics when I was younger. His work on “Swamp Thing” is legendary. “The Ghoul” features a Frankenstein like monster as a detective. He investigates odd crimes that might involve the occult. His team up with a local detective makes for an entertaining story. Wrightson has not lost his touch over the years. The art is amazing. Steve Niles turned in a solid story that played to Wrightson’s artistic strengths.
