Ghostbusters #13 kicks off the year-long “MASS HYSTERIA” storyline celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters! And believe me, by the looks of this issue, it’s not gonna be a cakewalk for the boys in gray!
Writer Erik Burnham never gives these poor guys a break. Wait, I take that back. In this issue, they have a nice little break from all the ghosts and busting because…. yeah, I’m not gonna spoil that part. But, needless to say, someone we all know and love gets exactly what he deserves. Meanwhile, one of the MOST demanded characters in Ghostbusters history makes their long, LONG awaited comic debut!!!!… and I’m not going to spoil that either. Man, this issue is hard to review without spoiling all the goodness inside. Let me put it this way: If you’ve ever seen the movie Ghostbusters, you’ll want to pick up this issue.
And then there’s artist Dan Schoening. What more can I say about him that hasn’t all ready been said? He’s awesome? Nope, pretty sure I’ve said that in the past. He brings an incredible amount of energy and emotion into each panel? Yeah, I think I’ve mentioned that, too. How about this: Dan Schoening is the best artist to ever draw Ghostbusters in the history of history! OK, that works for me.
This is the ground floor of a year-long party, people! And it’s one that you do NOT want to miss!!! Jump on this NOW!! Seriously, it’s a great comic, pick it up, you won’t be sorry.
– On a more serious note, the world was saddened earlier this week when actor, director, writer, and one of the most talented comedic minds of our time, Harold Ramis passed away at the age of 69. He wore many hats in his career, but the general public will best remember him as Ghostbuster Egon Spengler. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Harold Ramis for the countless hours of entertainment that he provided me and millions of other people all around the globe. And to thank him for giving all of us the greatest gift that any one person can give to another, that of laughter.
