    Dan Schoening has whipped up a whole new style for this series. You could call it "cartoony," but he's not imitating the aforementioned animated series at all. It's a look of his own, based on the five primary actors from the movies, giving us characters recognizable as the Ghostbusters and Janine, but still existing in a comic book world that meets the requirements of that sort of medium. I've wanted an ongoing series ever since IDW picked up the rights to this series a few years ago. Based on the first issue, it was worth the wait. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of the movies then this will definitely hit all the right buttons. The charm, humor and witty banter that made them such a treat is here in full effect. The jury is still out on whether it'll have its own personality and lasting appeal, but hopefully this'll tide you over until the mythical 3rd movie comes out, assuming it ever does.

    If you like Ghostbusters and can overlook the art then pickthis puppy up. If you're kind of tired of 80's adaptations regardless of who'sdoing them, the feel free to pass. The story is decent, but so far it hasn'tshown that it's going to revolutionize the Ghostbustersand frankly anything that it does will just be erased by the next company totake a stab at the series. The books getting a pretty low score, but that's notjust due to the issues I took with the book its because this isn't a very strongadaptation it's hard to say that it's for everyone. Ghostbusters is already a niche series; add the fact that it's incomic form with cartoon images and it's difficult to say that this is foreveryone. Read Full Review
