3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Gareth I. Davies VINE VOICE on 28 May 2014
Format: Hardcover
I debated getting this for quite a while. I already have the paperback versions. Did I really need the first four volumes collected in hardback? I should not have hesitated or debated.

This hardback collection screams quality. IDW have done a lovely job with the presentation of this hardback. The raised details really add to the feel of the book.

Having the stories as the larger format makes it even more fun trying to spot the GB and general 80's nostalgia easter eggs that they drop in to this ongoing series.

For the uninitiated, this IDW series considers the two films and the recent video game as canon while the other aspects of the franchise (cartoons, comics and even toys) get referenced or gradually integrated into the IDW GB world. It's brilliant! Great writing tone to get pretty damn close to the films, superb use of the characters, spot on pace to the building stories, amazingly detailed art, vivid animation style colour work all with superb back up mini stories.

The only down side to this reprinted collection is that the cover gallery section at the back perhaps isn't as good as in the paperbacks as the covers are squeezed a few to a page where as in the paperbacks they get a (smaller sized) page all to themselves.

All other bonus art and stories seems to match the paperbacks as far as I can tell just nice to have as the larger format.

Hardcore fans NEED this in their collection.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collects the sixteen issue ongoing series that IDW launched in 2011 and later reissued in four trade paperbacks. It is a very sturdy hardcover that isn’t too heavy for the hand at 432 pages and lays open on a table very well. You can see right into the centre pages and will have no fear of the spine letting you down.

It is slightly oversized. Definitely not an Absolute Edition but bigger than a standard issue by an inch or so. The art is also full bleed making things really pop off the page. As the panel divisions are thin black lines the whole effect is more cinematic than literary. The high gloss paper and the digital colouring work in combination to give a real visual feast.

The storylines are good, striking a balance between the new reader and the rabid fanboy. The more you know about the GB lore the more you will get out of them as every page background is packed with hidden gems and easter eggs but these rarely interrupt the flow of the story.

Unusually the issues start and end aren’t marked save for a modest red number in the corner. This helps things flow like watching a DVD without the ad breaks. Between stories there are extras like technical drawings, sketches and in-character documents that would have been present in the individual issues but have been moved to more convenient points.

There are 34 pages of extras including script breakdowns, concept art, sketches and lots of covers. The series was known for an abnormally high number of variant covers. Many of these have been reproduced here either as a single page or four to a page showing the amazing creativity and wealth of styles and ideas.

It is expensive but you are getting four TPB’s and a bullet proof binding. Thumbs Up!

The Definitive Collection 27 April 2014
By WOLVERINE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
10 years later, IDW manages to deliver on 88MPH Studios' promise of a collected edition featuring an introduction by one of the original Ghostbusters. This lovely hardcover is jammed with the first 16-issues of IDW's incredible run complete with all the bonus materials featured in those issues and a cover gallery, and has an introduction by Ernie Hudson which clearly shows his love of the franchise (if not already evidenced by how many times his photo appears online with him in a flight suit). The cover resembles the Real Ghostbusters containment unit and features embossed enhancements in all the right places. Basically, if you love Ghostbusters or IDW's comic, this is the tome for you.

Fantastic binding / overall package 5 April 2014
By Higgs1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Here's hoping we get a Total Containment 2 for the additional issues. For someone who read most of the comics and wanted them all in once place, you can't get much better than this. It looks great sitting on my coffee table and the pages just jump off the page. Can't wait for the next release!

Excellent Read 19 Jun. 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The perfect addition to any Ghostbuster fan's library. The writers and artists bring the movies alive in new adventures and stories.
Excellent. No damage to the package or product 10 Nov. 2014
By Sonja Bergström - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent. No damage to the package or product, no shipping troubles, and the book is in top-notch quality, with beautifully well-made printing and vibrant colours. The extra material and comics are very worth it, and the book is at a perfect, fairly cheap price for such a complete and enjoyably put together collection. Ernie Hudson's foreword warms my heart, too.

A fun read and loaded with little easter eggs from the movies, cartoons (Real and Extreme), & games. You'll enjoy this new installment and find yourself lingering on the pages long after having read the text.
