    As with all of IDW's previous Ghostbusters books, you absolutely have to pick this one up if you're a GB fan. Honestly, I wish Burnham and Schoening were in charge of the film franchise, as they could easily make another two or three films out of all the stuff they've done so far. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jun 16, 2015

    Ihighly recommend finding the classic episode and comparing it with the comic. It will provide so much context and appreciation for what these men are doing. Perhaps though, the real charm is that the creative team makes the story their own. They see the potential strength of the villain and how he was poorly used in the cartoon, so many possibilities are there and it looks like a lot will be explored in this event. This is an absolute must buy for fans Also, the variants look amazing too. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jun 17, 2015

    There was no surprise that GHOSTBUSTER: GET REAL was going to be a fun book. Conceptually, it's a brilliant idea and the execution matches the level. While the main story just may seem like the Real Ghostbusters getting back to their own dimension, but there's another fun layer to it. The book is headed in the right direction and the artwork here is top notch as well. If you're looking for something a bit out there, but a lot of fun, check this book out. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Bryce Osceola Jul 1, 2015

    This issue is a must-read for any supernatural or Ghostbuster fan! The artwork delivers incredibly as it is easy to distinguish the characters from their other-dimensional counterparts. The Real Ghostbuster characters have more vibrant and bold coloring while the live-action inspired Ghostbuster team boast more dulled hues and sharper lines. The writing is great and delivers an entertaining storyline brimming with ghosts, witches and angry gods! Read Full Review

    In the end, I can honestly say this series is going to do justice to the old flick we all know and love. With the humorous script and beautiful artwork, this is definitely a book I will be keeping up with as the issues roll on in. This is a good read for any Ghostbusters fan, comic book lover, and overall nerd. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 18, 2015

    It's a testament to how "outside the box" IDW has been with the Ghostbusters franchise that the notion of the movie Ghostbusters meeting their animated selves from The Real Ghostbusters is not the strangest thing to happen. It's a solid premise, regardless, and one Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening exploit to great effect in this first issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 17, 2015

    Extensive in exposition, "Ghostbusters: Get Real" #1 is a love letter to the cartoon series in particular and the Ghostbusters brand in general. Burnham, Schoening, Delgado and Uyetake have rich experience with the characters and they pack this comic full of evidence that that experience has nurtured. This comic should be well-received, as very few Ghostbusters comic fans would be totally unaware of the cartoon, but -- for fans of the franchise -- this comic is certain to become indispensable.

    Comicosity - Jordan Jennings Jun 22, 2015

    Overall, Ghostbusters Get Real #1 is a fun trip down memory lane for fans of the cartoon. The story seems to be a fun one full of adventure. The art is tremendous at setting the stage. The writing is funny and character driven. There are flaws but they arent something that ruins the overall reading experience. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Jun 22, 2015

    Some sharp visuals and heavy nostalgia value here, but it feels a little like they chose style over substance. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Jun 16, 2015

    Overall, this is not a bad start to the crossover, and diehard Ghostbusters fans who are riding high on the franchise's 30th anniversary will want to check it out. However, I do hope it's able to excel beyond the standard tropes of a crossover, because we really are running out of new ideas. Read Full Review
