Ghostbusters #20 review
Ghostbusters #20
Written by Erik Burnham
Art by Dan Schoening
Colors by Luis Antonio Delgado
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Edits by Tom Waltz
Covers by Dan Schoening, Tristan Jones & Roberto Goiriz
IDW Publishing
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.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Toe Tag Riot

Most of the time, these Kickstarter Spotlights are pretty straightforward. Someone wants to bring their project to light through crowdfunding by offering rewards and incentives. But every once in a while one of them is about more than a movie or a comic (or whatever they are doing). Toe Tag Riot is one of these that seeks to be a bit more than what it appears at face value. Not content with merely being a comic book, it seeks to make a point by changing up perspectives and vilifying those who seek to do an injustice to others. Stay with me here while I break it all down for you.

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: December 12, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Hidden in Ghostbusters #16 is a honest to God, heartwarming romantic story. No, seriously. C’mon, I’m not joking!!! And can I just say that’s it a nice treat to have a Christmas issue of a comic? Because, it is.

This month, Erik Burnham gives us an issue spotlighting Winston. We don’t get enough Winston. So, while this isn’t a SOLO tale by ANY means, it’s a nice issue that totally revolves around him. Don’t worry, he still gives us the patented Erik Burnham “meanwhile, he’s some things that are going to cause trouble down the line” moments. Back to this issue, though, it revolves around Winston and his girlfriend, a ghost from Winston’s past, and him being trapped alone in a creepy old house. For the first time that I can recall, we get some inner monologue, which is really nice and very entertaining. This issue also sets up some VERY cool stuff, that I can’t even imagine what it’s leading up to or how it’s going to pan out, but I’m really excited to see where this all goes. All in all, a really nice, charming and funny issue.

Release Date: November 28, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In many ways, Ghostbusters #15 is the culmination of fifteen consecutive issues of awesomeness. I mean it, readers, comics don’t get much more fun than this.

While I can’t really say much about the plot of this issue without giving away major spoilers, let’s just say that Erik Burnham turns in a classic Ghostbusters tale. I really mean it, it’s like you’re reading what would be Ghostbusters 3. Of course, this version would be about 6 hours long. This issue has everything and everyone, including characters not seen in a LONG time. It’s all payoff in this issue. But… of course, there’s some things left dangling that can propel the book even further into greatness in future issues. This is one hell of a great issue!

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.

Ghostbusters #13 is, so far, the most interesting and plain-out exciting issue in the series so far. Not that the previous year’s worth of stories have been boring by any means, but it seems like the creative team really threw the rule book out the window with this issue.

I think writer Erik Burnham had a little too much caffeine while writing Ghostbusters #13. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, either. There is SO much going on in this issue, that it takes a second read to let your brain absorb all that’s going on. After a long road trip, the boys finally return back to New York City, where they find things are, let’s just say, different. There’s no business in the ghostbusting business, and by the end of the issue we find out why.

Release Date: July 25, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In Ghostbusters #11, the boys continue there cross country trek, this time stopping in Roswell, New Mexico. Hmmmmmm….strange things going on in Roswell? Who would’ve guessed that?

Erik Burnham hasn’t missed a beat in ten issues, and doesn’t miss one now. The characers on all dead-on, and it’s nice to see the boys in gray as fish out of water. These last couple issues have been killer with the guys going literally all over the country. While hometown heroes back in New York City, they don’t really get the respect they deserve around the rest of the country, which takes them by surprise, but they all have different, and funny, ways of dealing with it. This issue is particularly interesting as they come face to face with an FBI team that’s investigating aliens, and the old “they’re ghosts!” “NO! They’re aliens” debate comes into play. All in all, another excellent issue filled with classic Ghostbuster humor and heart.
