So here’s the deal, I am a Vampirella fan. I have been for years and I doubt that will ever change. But after several decades, the stories are starting to blend together. Not to say that I didn’t like Savage Tales: Vampirella #1 but it has some predictable plot points to it.

Release Date: January 25, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I think we can all remember our first concert/show, right? If you are an audiophile then I have no doubt you do. Well, KISS: The Demon #1 reminds me of my first show since the headliner was the aforementioned band KISS. Not only were they my first band to see live but, later on, they were the first group I ever went and saw without an adult.

So, to say they hold a special place in my heart is to understate things in an enormous way. The point is, I share that same feeling with the main character of this story, which is a prequel to the ongoing comic.

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…

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 banner

It was ranked as the seventh best Star Trek movie by hardcore Trek fans and now, Galaxy Quest — the 1999 scifi action comedy that was not, in fact, part of the Trek universe, but sure as hell came close — is going to live on in a new comic book series from IDW called Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues.

The film starred Tim Allen as Jason Nesmith, an actor who was on a scifi TV series very similar to Star Trek called Galaxy Quest, where he played a character very much like Captain Kirk. The cast members reunite at a convention, where they are approached by a group of aliens who enlist the actors to help them against a warlord, because they believe the events of the television series are Earth’s actual history.

Written by Erik Burnham with art by Nacho Arranz, the 32-page full-color Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 was released today, Wednesday, January 21, 2015; check out the preview of this first issue here below.

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.

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.
