In Ghostbusters #11, the boys continue there cross country trek, this time stopping in Roswell, New Mexico. Hmmmmmm….strange things going on in Roswell? Who would’ve guessed that?
Erik Burnham hasn’t missed a beat in ten issues, and doesn’t miss one now. The characers on all dead-on, and it’s nice to see the boys in gray as fish out of water. These last couple issues have been killer with the guys going literally all over the country. While hometown heroes back in New York City, they don’t really get the respect they deserve around the rest of the country, which takes them by surprise, but they all have different, and funny, ways of dealing with it. This issue is particularly interesting as they come face to face with an FBI team that’s investigating aliens, and the old “they’re ghosts!” “NO! They’re aliens” debate comes into play. All in all, another excellent issue filled with classic Ghostbuster humor and heart.
Pretty soon, when you think of Ghostbusters, your going to see Dan Schoening‘s artwork in your head. I know I do already. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this man is the PERFECT choice for this book. I can’t see anyone else drawing it, ever. I just hope that Dan has no vacation plans and guards his hands pretty well when he’s not drawing. This issue he really shows what he can do, because you pretty much can’t get further away, art wise, from New York than the deserts of New Mexico. But, Schoening hits another home run, when he makes Roswell look just as much a part of the Ghostbusters universe as the firehouse back home. Well played, Dan!!
Tristan Jones gives us another awesome chapter in his Peter Venkman mystery story. For spoiler reasons, I can’t go into much detail, but there’s a LOT more action than in a normal Ghostbusters story and there’s actually quite a few surprises as Peter learns what happens when everything doesn’t go his way. Fantastic back-up that I hope is collected very soon.
Another great issue!!! But, that’s what I’ve come to expect from this creative team -nothing but the best. This issue is the most different of the series so far, and it’s great. It’s nice to see the team out of their element, and the end results have been VERY entertaining.
