Hidden in Ghostbusters #16 is a honest to God, heartwarming romantic story. No, seriously. C’mon, I’m not joking!!! And can I just say that’s it a nice treat to have a Christmas issue of a comic? Because, it is.
This month, Erik Burnham gives us an issue spotlighting Winston. We don’t get enough Winston. So, while this isn’t a SOLO tale by ANY means, it’s a nice issue that totally revolves around him. Don’t worry, he still gives us the patented Erik Burnham “meanwhile, he’s some things that are going to cause trouble down the line” moments. Back to this issue, though, it revolves around Winston and his girlfriend, a ghost from Winston’s past, and him being trapped alone in a creepy old house. For the first time that I can recall, we get some inner monologue, which is really nice and very entertaining. This issue also sets up some VERY cool stuff, that I can’t even imagine what it’s leading up to or how it’s going to pan out, but I’m really excited to see where this all goes. All in all, a really nice, charming and funny issue.
All I want for Christmas is for Dan Schoening to draw every comic being published. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll get my wish. But that’s not gonna stop me from trying!!! Schoening does his typical fantastic work as usual here: there’s some great ghost scenes in this issue as well as some really nicely done and detailed cityscapes. The ones in this book are always a treat and this one’s no different.
Relax, kick your feet up, and be ready to be entertained by this smart, funny, feel-good issue. You really need to treat yourself and grab this issue!!!
