Ghostbusters: Deviations, One-Shot

Ghostbusters: Deviations (One Shot)
Written by Kelly Thompson

Covers by Nelson Daniel, Dan Schoening
IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 16, 2016
Cover Price: $4.99

Welcome, one and all, to a story that isn’t quite as you might remember it. This version, aptly titled Ghostbusters: Deviations, is all about what would happen if one key part of the story was changed. This is essentially along the lines of an alternate reality story mashed up with the basic “what if” concept we have seen in the past.

I think the part that stands out the most is that the script changes the story about ten minutes from the end of the first film. The writer chose an important part and changed only one key action. It makes for hilarity in comic form.

Great Scott! Could it be? Is it really October 21, 2015? Why, yes. Yes, it is! And to commemorate Back To The Future Day, IDW Publishing has released Back To The Future #1! Based on one of the greatest film trilogies of the twentieth century, this comic book brings us two stories that delve into the days prior to the first film. Everything you ever wanted to know is right here in this comic!*

Like I said, this issue, the first of four in this miniseries, consists of two unique stories. One explores the first meeting of Marty McFly and Doctor Emmett Brown. In the second tale, we see how Emmett becomes part of one of the most significant scientific programs of the twentieth century.

Ghostbusters: Get Real #2 is quite possibly the most Ghostbustery comic that I’ve ever read in my life, and I loved every single panel of it! WHO ELSE but the creative team that IDW Publishing put together could pull this off? Nobody, that’s who.

Ghostbusters: Get Real #1 rips the Ghostbusters from The Real Ghostbusters cartoon (NO MONKEY!), and smashes them with the… um… real Ghostbusters. By that, I mean the Ghostbusters from the movie Ghostbusters. Confused? You won’t be. Entertained? Let me tell you…

Release Date: September 24, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Whether we like it or not, all good things must come to an end. Ghostbusters #20 is the last issue of what has been a fantastic series. And, the epic conclusion of the Ghostbusters 30th anniversary story line, “Mass Hysteria”.

Erik Burnham wraps up this story, and series, in a funny, breath taking, uplifting way, as he always does. The boys are taking on both Gozer AND his brother, Tiamat. Ray is possessed, Winston’s in BIG TIME trouble, all around, it’s a typical Ghostbusters mess. And, in his usual fashion, Burnham makes it a lot of fun. As from the very beginning, the characterization is spot-on, and you can actually hear the actors from the film delivering the dialogue. There’s plenty of action, lots of humor, and it’s an all around great script.

Ghostbusters #13 kicks off the year-long “MASS HYSTERIA” storyline celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters! And believe me, by the looks of this issue, it’s not gonna be a cakewalk for the boys in gray!

Writer Erik Burnham never gives these poor guys a break. Wait, I take that back. In this issue, they have a nice little break from all the ghosts and busting because…. yeah, I’m not gonna spoil that part. But, needless to say, someone we all know and love gets exactly what he deserves. Meanwhile, one of the MOST demanded characters in Ghostbusters history makes their long, LONG awaited comic debut!!!!… and I’m not going to spoil that either. Man, this issue is hard to review without spoiling all the goodness inside. Let me put it this way: If you’ve ever seen the movie Ghostbusters, you’ll want to pick up this issue.

Release Date: January 22, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Going into The X-Files/Ghostbusters: Conspiracy #1 I was a bit nervous, because I’ve never watched the X-Files television series. So, I was a bit concerned that I wouldn’t understand what was going on. So, did it make sense to me? Let’s find out.

Thanks to regular Ghostbusters writer, Erik Burnham, I totally understood what was going on in this issue. He gives a great introduction to The X-Files characters, lays out their purpose in this crossover, and has it make total sense, instead of just a big mash-up of the two different properties. Not only that, he actually shows us a different side of the Ghostbusters’ life that we haven’t seen in the regular Ghostbusters title.

Lettered by Neil Uyetake
Edited by Tom Waltz
Covers by Dan Schoening and Freddie E. Williams II
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 22, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The New Ghostbusters #4 is the epic team-up that we never knew we wanted. The Ghostbusters team up with THE GHOSTBUSTERS!!! No, STILL not the ones with the monkey. Leave that alone, it’s never happening. But, we get something much, much better.

Thanks to Erik Burnham, who’s mind came up with The New Ghostbusters, we finally get the two teams working together to stop a group of big bads that have been menacing them both since the last series. As usual, the writing is crisp, brisk, and full of laughs. What Burnham adds to this fourth installment is some really great character moments. Yes, he does that from time to time in the series, but this issue he gives it a new spin when The Ghostbusters are forced to team up with members of the OTHER Ghostbusting team. The result, is great. Most of the story takes place in the very creepy Parkview insane asylum, and that atmosphere is the perfect place for the climax of this story. Add to that a great ending, and an afterthought cliffhanger that you KNEW was coming, and you’ve got a really really well written issue.
