For a while now, the original Ghostbusters have had access to an interdimensional portal that has given them all-new ways to research the paranormal and consult with Ghostbusters throughout the multiverse... but they haven't shared this tech with any of those other Ghostbusters, and some don't think that's fair. That's why, after a chance meeting, Jillian Holtzmann and Ron Alexander have decided to right this wrong and cobble together their own working portal... which unintentionally unleashes the contents of the Ghostbusters' Containment Unit! That's a lot of ghosts, and it's going to take a lot of Ghostbusters to recapture them. In fact, it more

    In any fair universe, Erik Burnham's long run on IDW's Ghostbusters comics would be viewed as the astonishing feat that it is " and Ghostbusters: Crossing Over #1 reads like a master ignoring the call to create a "definitive" work and instead just reveling in the fun and creativity his existing body of work has provided.

    Dimension hopping gone awry leads to frantic fun and frights with the Ghostbusters. A wonderfully twisted premise with impressive visuals make this one to pick up and place in your own personal containment unit. Read Full Review

    There's a great deal of exposition in this issue, but it really fills in some gaps that exist in reconciling not only the films and the comics, but the films with each other. Read Full Review

    Although I did enjoy the issue overall there was a couple of pages and a couple of characters that didn't make sense to me, being new to the franchise, I am unsure if these will get explained along the way, but it certainly wasn't a deal breaker, especially to those who are used to jumping into comics blind, which to be fair, is most of us. I think Erik Burnham did an excellent job of making this as new reader friendly as it could be while appealing to the hardcore Ghostbuster reader. Bits and Pieces:I look forward to reading the next 7 issues, especially as they capture the humor and the feel of the Ghostbuster so precisely. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of The Ghostbusters and enjoy them in any aspect, this is the series you all have been waiting for. Yes, the Ghostbusters have crossed over with other Ghostbusters before, but this time ALL Ghostbuster incarnations will meet each other! Growing up in the 90's I caught the Ghostbusters pretty late, but when I first watch them I became a fan at that moment, I watched the Ghostbuster movies constantly and even The Real Ghostbusters cartoon. But all in all, I was a really big fan of Extreme Ghostbusters, and finally with Ghostbusters: Crossing Over I'll get to see them once again. About damn time! Read Full Review
