    I think the last time I was this shocked and excited was when the XGBs appeared briefly in the Get Real series. Honestly, this is a brilliant piece of marketing underplay for a truly massive payoff. Well done IDW! Read Full Review

    Filled with slick art and plenty of sass, Ghostbusters Annual 2017 is a top-to-bottom blast. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Fabienne Payet Jan 31, 2017

    The overall art is really nice, crisp and detailed. However, I have noticed in two of the stories that, where the other characters seem normal, the Ghostbusters themselves are very caricature-like. It is very obvious in the first story, "Where Winston Was", and I do not quite understand why it was done this way. The standard characters look normal, but Winston is over-sized, has an odd head shape and just does not seem to fit in with the others. In "The Origins of Slimer", again, there are three characters that seem totally out of place by the way they are drawn. Especially the character of Kylie Griffin, where it looks her mouth is on the side of her head. I dislike this greatly. It distracts from the story and makes no sense to make some of the Ghostbusters almost grotesque. It sticks out like a sore thumb. While the rest of the artwork is nice, this distraction severely diminishes my overall liking of the drawings. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Jan 18, 2017

    The artwork in this annual is great, but Dan Schoening's cartoon style stands heads and shoulders above the rest. The guy is incredible! The stories are what you expect in an annual; short to the point and self-contained. If you're a fan of the Ghostbusters then this is a must read. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Lauren Sisselman Feb 1, 2017

    Every story in here is easy to follow without any prior knowledge. They all wrap up neatly, and the flow between stories is fine too. Again, this is an annual, so you (usually) get a variety of writers and artists. I was partial to the art style in "Second City Ghostbusters", from Erik Evensen. Story wise, "Haunted America: A Prairie Hell Companion" by Erik Burnham. In fact, Burnham writes most of the stories in this annual, but we do get pieces from Dan Schoening, who also pencils a few stories, and Tom Waltz. Artists include Corin Howell, Rachael Stott, and Tim Lattie. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 5, 2017

    The Ghostbusters annual is packed to the brim with the same humor, action, and horror that has come to define the franchise. There are a total of nine stories collected here, including a parody of the classic Hostess snack cakes comic ad, but with a paranormal twist. There is not a bad story in the bunch. This is a must read for any Ghostbusters fan. Read Full Review
