REVIEW: GHOSTBUSTERS 101 #1

I like what they’re doing, IDW are just going full multi verse and screw the tossers that hated on the Ghostbusters with a vag’. Which was bloody funny by the way.

This is structured a lot better than the last one I read, the pacing is neat and the humour is actually funny. The characters are all on point and actually contribute to this first issue. There’s even very cool references to Transformers and the Ninja Turtles, which is all a neat nod to the shared universe IDW always want to promote.

The art is slick, almost too slick in places where the line work feels a bit too thin but on the whole all the characters are distinctive and the overall designs of the equipment and ghosts is inventive enough without being distracting.

I love the idea that this is building on the mythology of the entire Ghostbusters franchise and having fun with it, they even work Ghostbusters 2 into the mix, that impressive feet alone is worth the cover price. 4/5
