Robert Hunter is a trained illustrator who worked with the small—press publisher Nobrow Press to create "The New Ghost." It’s a gorgeous piece that plays with color and panel structure. It’s an original story, told well, but the best and most unique thing about it is the highly saturated and beautiful artwork.
—Indie Reader

Rob Hunter's art runs against many of the strong currents in the worlds of comics. I know tons of comics that are tough, gritty, funny, gross, goofy, dark, trippy, dystopian, complex, satirical. These aren't bad things at all, but how often do you come across a comic that's light as air, dreamy and poetic?
