The New Ghostbusters #3 is one hell of a summer movie told in comic book form. About two pages in, I wanted to grab some butter-drenched popcorn and Reese’s Pieces.
How man times do I have to sing Erik Burnham‘s praises? Looks like at least once more. This guy is a FANTASTIC writer and I don’t know how he doesn’t work more than he does. When it comes to dialogue, he’s one of the best in the business right now, BAR NONE. I can hear the actors delivering his line as I read the pages, and it’s so natural, that the movie really does play in your head as you read the comic.
Now, not to spoil the ending, but this is the issue that we’ve all been waiting for, not mention that one of the mysteries that’s been plaguing the New (and old) Ghostbusters comes to a head.
Dan Schoening is firing on all cylinders this issue. When I look at his art, it makes me wish that he drew every comic that I read. He’s got the actors’ likenesses down, he introduces some great looking new Ghostbusters tech, and all the ghosts and ghouls look like they belong in the Ghostbusters cinematic universe. His pages are lush and gorgeous and as close to perfection that you’re going to come across right now.
Pick up this comic! Whether your a Ghostbusters fan or not, you’re going to love it! Well, you’ll love it more if you’re a Ghostbusters fan…and who isn’t?
