"Let's Do The Space-Warp Again!" Before they began investigating the supernatural, most of the original Ghostbusters were teachers... and they've decided it's time they start sharing their knowledge again. But when their first batch of students start poking around the firehouse and accidentally set in motion the merging of two universes (it's easier than you'd think) Venkman, Stantz, Zeddemore, and Spengler will need all the help they can get to put things right! And who do you think will Answer The Call? (If you guessed Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan, and Gilbert... you get a gold star!) It's a brand new inter-dimensional meeting of the minds, star more

    I love the idea that this is building on the mythology of the entire Ghostbusters franchise and having fun with it, they even work Ghostbusters 2 into the mix, that impressive feet alone is worth the cover price. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Without delving into the realm of spoilers, let's just summarize by say that Ghostbusters 101 features more of the same greatness that we've all come to expect from a truly great creative team who continue to be at the absolute top of their game. This initial issue already has me desperately craving the next one. Just go out and buy it. Now. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Mar 21, 2017

    The post-credits scene in Ghostbusters (2016) teased a connection between these universes, and while the book doesn't immediately deliver on this, Burnham brings us something that finds the ley-lines between the original films, his comic book universe and the 2016 movie. Indeed, it's the kind of crossover can only be achieved in this medium, with original cast members having left our mortal coil far too soon. This is a fun start to a promising series, and one that will be irresistible to fans. Read Full Review

    the art was just breathtaking. beautiful. it almost made me read the whole thing. the story just isn't for me. silly, full of humor. quite likely exactly what they are trying for, but ... not enough real story for me. just came here to compliment the artist.
