It’s been half a year since IDW Publishing unleashed the ongoing Ghostbusters title, and if Ghostbusters #6 is any indication, this book is going to be around for a long time.
Writer Erik Burnham scares me. Not like the killer Bob in Twin Peaks scares me, but like really smart people scare me. His writing in this book is first and foremost, funny and entertaining, but it’s also CRAZY detailed. I’m guessing Burnham spends lots of weekends at his local libraries going over books on ghosts, urban legends, and other scary things, because seriously, this guy knows his stuff.
One of the things that I love most about this book is that there’s TONS of subplots going on each month and you can tell each one is going to pay off in a big way in future issues. So KEEP READING!!!!!
Artist Dan Schoening is a genius.
Over all, another great issue. Not only does this issue move the immediate story along, but also there’s some movement on B stories that are very interesting. Can’t wait to see how these come to fruition down the road. All in all, this has been a home run book in its first half year. Can’t wait to see what the second half brings!
