Tiamat's chaotic presence continues to be felt in New York City, and the Ghostbusters are at wits' end as to how to deal with it. She's clearly too powerful to capture, and she may be impossible to destroy... does that leave only the most drastic of options open to the team? Mass Hysteria continues here!

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jul 30, 2014

    Mass Hysteria continues to be the most ambitious and fun Ghostbusters stories ever. Burnham has paid homage to the past while moving things forward in a great direction. This book will be coming to an end soon (sadly), but it looks like it will be going out in style. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 30, 2014

    GHOSTBUSTERS #18 is a bit of a mixed experience for me. It seems like so many potentially big and fun plot elements are swiftly resolved and, unless these have some major developments down the road, it almost feels like a filler issue as we await Tiamat's grand return. But, on the flip side, Burnham's script is still strong -- the characters have organic voices and it sounds like something their respective actors could deliver -- and, as always, the artwork impresses me on each and every page. Seeing as I'm left feeling so down the middle about this issue and it comes off as less compelling than previous entries, a 3 out of 5 feels appropriate. It's by no means a bad issue, but it does feel like a little bit of a departure from the book's usual delivery of exciting and hilarious developments. Despite that, I'm still left anxiously awaiting the next chapter! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jul 29, 2014

    Despite this being an off issue, this creative team has earned enough trust that readers should stick with this series. There are plenty of Easter eggs in the background of panels, so keep an eye out for those! The cover for next month's comic seems to indicate that the story will be kicking things back into high gear. Count me in! Read Full Review
