Ghostbusters #14 continues the streak. It’s the 14th awesome issue in a row with the SAME creative team! In today’s comic world, that’s a record. Not to mention, it’s pretty damn awesome.
Erik Burnham was BORN to write this comic. Hey, Hollywood, THIS is the guy that you want to write Ghostbusters 3. There is no one who writes these characters better than him. He’s got every character spot on. No exceptions. This issue has the Ghostbusters taking on the Ghost Smashers, and they find themselves hooking up with a VERY unexpected ally. He’s got about three or four subplots going on at the same time, and none of them are confusing or muddled and they all get you excited for upcoming issues. THAT is some good comics writing, folks. Not to mention that the comic is full tilt fun from beginning to end.
I know I mentioned this earlier, but this is the FOURTEENTH issue in row for artist Dan Schoening. That is almost a record by today’s standards. And guess what? They’ve all been AWESOME!!! His love of the Ghostbusters franchise is well known, and that’s really to his credit, because his love actually shows on the page. He’s a tremendously talented artist and while I never want him to leave Ghostbusters, I’d love to see him do a different kind of book. But again, not at the cost of him not doing an issue of Ghostbusters.
Another fantastic issue. This series is going full steam ahead with NO signs of slowing down. It’s a must-read for any Ghostbusters fan, and even if you’re not a fan (OK, let’s be honest, NO ONE isn’t a Ghostbusters fan) you’ll still enjoy it. The most impressive thing about this series is that it’s had the same creative team since issue one, and they’ve kept up the quality. So, big Crunch bars to Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, Tristan Jones, and company for a job well done!
