    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 6, 2013

    It's been well over a decade since I've jumped into the Ghostbusters universe and I'm happy to see that everything I loved about the movies and original cartoon is still here. Burnham has a script packed with heart, humor and distinct characters. To top it off, this is the beginning of a legitimately interesting plot, too. It's not merely a ghost with a simple and evil objective -- it's more complex than that and has me interested to see how it develops. Additionally, The art by Schoening and Delgado is beyond wonderful. Simply put, it's a great book. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Nov 7, 2013

    Overall, I really liked this issue. Everything seemed to come together really well. The only thing that I can think of at the moment that I don't like is the $3.99 price tag. I don't think that I'll ever really get used to that. However, I'm really looking forward to seeing how everything plays out in the future months. I'm guessing that it'll be a pretty exciting ride. I hope so. Read Full Review

    Its very encouraging to see this team in charge of the Ghostbusters future. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with this comic. Its perhaps pitched to a younger crowd but when its done this well its always worth a read. Read Full Review

    The creative team make this issue worthy of being a Ghostbusters Halloween story. Its a strong start to this arc and builds the anticipation for the follow-up! Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Nov 8, 2013

    Something about this issue of Ghostbusters just didn't click with me. Most of the series has been a great time, but issue 9 just fell a little short for me. Read Full Review
