Twenty years in the future, and a new generation of Ghostbusters... is sent on all the jobs Ray, Winston, Peter, and Egon just don't feel like taking on themselves. The Sanctum of Slime Ghostbusters-Bridget, Samuel, Gabriel, and Alan-have proven themselves many times over... first against the demon Dumazu, and later with the Ghostbusters of many other dimensions in the recent Crossing Over event. Now they're ready for an easy gig, something like a simple haunted house. But they better be careful... you never know Wat could happen.

    Ghostbusters: IDW 20/20offers everything Ghostbusters fans love with a few new faces in the mix. Erik Burnham's script strikes that perfect balance between potential apocalypseand typical day at the office. Read Full Review

    The art is really good. There are some impressive panels and a great use of light and shadow at use. Definitely a good looking issue. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 11, 2019

    A decent outing that explores the Sanctum of Slime Ghostbusters. The story has some fun moments, several good scares, and I learned more about how this team works. The visuals are fine, with the colors being spot on. The back-up story looks fantastic, but is too short to do anything and comes off as a last minute addition, which it was. This is a decent Ghostbusters tale. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 17, 2019

    As a cool standalone one-shot, this is an enjoyable read. 20 years of IDW is no small achievement, and its fun to see the classic team a lot older. Ultimately, the creators give us a glimpse at an intriguing potential future here, albeit one that doesnt seem to tie in to the grander scheme of the Ghostbusters comic universe. And if you're able to take that into account and view this as a self-contained story removed from the wider GB continuity, this one's definitely worth a look. Read Full Review

    Overall, I did enjoy the issue, but I just think I was expecting more when I heard about the 20/20 event. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Chris Egan Jan 21, 2019

    Chock full of fun GB references, but it hardly stands on its own. It's not great for long-time readers or newcomers as a one-shot. If you regularly collect the series it's a fine addition to pick up, but it is a bad jumping on point. It will definitely work best collected in a future trade paperback or series omnibus.
