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.
