The new Ghostbusters series from IDW is another example of how smaller, so-called 'indy' properties are actually putting together far stronger comic books than the vast majority of the industry leaders. IDW in particular is doing a great job of bringing properties to fans - what with the excellent new take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, their work with the Transformers and GI Joe properties, and their own series, such as Locke and Key.

The appeal of Ghostbusters is difficult to describe. The films are naturally a slice of high-concept comedy with great performances from all involved, but that 80's flavour is incredibly important; Given all the rumours surrounding Ghostbusters 3 as a film in development, it almost sounds like Akroyd and his contemporaries have lost touch with what made the first two films great; They don't need to update Ghostbusters with more modern humour or visuals - That was the beauty of the 2010 videogame, which did a fantastic job of capturing the feel of the films. These comic books do exactly the same thing. The characters are pitch perfect, and that feel of comedy mixed in with occasionally genuinely scary horror is there in force. Some may be turned off by the visuals - which are quite cartoonish, but I think I prefer the kind of style employed in the book to an artist trying to make the characters look exactly like the actors playing them.

But this is a great book. With this and the recent videogame, it's a great time to be a Ghostbusters fan. Like the game, this book deals with a handful of plot threads from the first film - in particular, what makes Ray so special? No spoilers, but it's genuinely interesting.

This volume collects the first four issues of IDW’s ongoing series that began in September 2011 and comprises a complete story. Flushed with the success of their previous one-shots and mini-series this fits nicely into the cannon they created but is accessible to the new reader.

It is packed with references to the original films, videogame, cartoon, comics and pop-culture in general. This is rarely intrusive but eagle-eyes will smile at the copious background detail. All the regulars are here including Slimer, Janine, Gozer and Walter Peck in addition to the fab four. Within a few pages you are back in haunted New York and hearing the voices of the original actors in your head as the smooth dialogue takes you on a nostalgia trip.

The art pays homage to the Real Ghostbusters cartoon with the characters stylised but immediately recognisable. The colouring is lush and vibrant and not afraid to experiment when evoking spooky atmosphere. The panelling is loose and creative when it needs to be but always easy to follow.

This is a great start and although only four issues you don’t feel short changed.

Thumbs Up!

On the whole the Ghostbusters comics are as good as you'd hope a continuation of an 80's movie duology would be; the mix of spooks/tech/sarcasm is generally in the right area and overall it's an enjoyable series. However there are a few faults that are difficult to ignore and consistently drag the stories down: The least-worst two of these are issues I admit have with Western comics in general so your mileage may vary here; the first is an obsession with its own continuity that can't help but refer to one-shots and crossovers you haven't read - this only serves to alienate newbies and doesn't really add anything significant even if you do go and look up whatever the hell they just mentioned, and the second is the tendency to introduce future stories by having some extremely minor object or plot point suddenly become the centre of the lore-related universe six issues later. You say 'set up', I say 'fractured storytelling'. *shrugs*

By far the worst though is that while Ray, Peter, and Winston are usually decent impersonations of their movie counterparts Egon has become a hollowed-out husk of his previously impish scientific self, replaced by a bland Spockalike who wouldn't use a hypothetical 35ft Twinkie to explain something if one hit him in his dour face.

This really is a very well executed addition to the Ghostbusters Canon, high quality art work complements the well rounded story and with enough nods to both the movies and video games this is a good choice for both graphic novel and Ghostbusters fans alike.

As a Ghostbusters fan boy i was very excited by getting this book.

This is a very worthy entry into the franchise. set sometime after the events of 'Ghostbusters: the video game'. It's a great story with really nice art work.

I couldn't agree with the other reviewer more. There is no need to make a 3rd film, THIS is the best effort to continue the franchise since the Videogame. Having read the IDW Omnibus of recent GB stories and not been too impressed by all of them I wasn't too sure what to expect from this. I needn't have worried. The best parts of the Omnibus stories (Dan Schoening's art in particular) are exactly what has been used here. The art brilliantly melds the two films with the cartoon/comics styles. Each character has a clear and effective look all with excellent colour work. The story balances the silly/comic moments with scary moments very well and also sets it up as an arc that could well just run and run (a bit like how The Walking Dead is a story without end I suppose), great! The plot also melds the films with cartoons (both Real and Extreme GB, just check out the developing gear that crops up) and references the Videogame as well all in a very subtle and cool way. I also really liked the background hide-and-seek GB franchise and general eighties references that the artist drops in. The gallery of other artists interpretations, sketch gallery and bust-report notes just makes it even better. I can't wait to read volumes 2, 3 and 4 now!Ghostbusters Omnibus Volume 1Ghostbusters Volume 2 (Ghostbusters Graphic Novels)...Read more ›
