The Whole Goddamned Thing – Conspiracy Trucker Tale Ghost Fleet Gets Deluxe Edition At Image

by Hannah Means Shannon

All eight issues of the original series of Ghost Fleet are going to be collected into one hefty tome in time for Christmas at Image Comics. It promises to be a “deluxe, over-the-top volume”.

Donny Cates (writer of God Country, Babyteeth, and soon, Thanos), and Daniel Warren Johnson (creator of Extremity) published two series in single issues and trades at Dark Horse with colorist Lauren Affe and letterer John J. Hill, but the full run has never been collected before.

Cates says:

I am so incredibly proud to be able to finally bring this insane story to one deluxe volume. The Ghost Fleet is one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of, and it makes me so happy to expose it to an entirely new set of readers. For fans of Daniel Warren Johnson’s beautifully insane and frenetic art, it’s a chance to see where it all began. Featuring never-before-seen extras and behind-the-scenes features including the alternate ending that never was! This is the collection I’ve been dreaming of for a very long time. Come and join us on this crazy, over-the-top adventure one final time.

Ghost Fleet is about a secret fleet of longhaul trucks that carry the world’s “most valuable, dangerous, or secretive cargo”. When one of the world’s “elite combat-trained truckers” takes a forbidden peek at his payload, he “uncovers a conspiracy that will change his life, and the world, forever”.

With some of the most interesting character development and most beautiful comic art you’ll ever see, Ghost Fleet is one to pick up.
