|My set of Ghostbusters' graphic novels.|
This past Christmas I was lucky enough to received IDW's complete series by Erik Burnham on The Ghostbusters. The comic series ran from 2011 till 2014 and encompasses 9 graphic novel volumes. I must say they are OUTSTANDING!!! If you are a fan of the films, cartoon series, or both these are a must read. Burnham does a terrific job of honoring the great mythology of the characters by adding new layers of depth to them. He also expands on the Ghostbusters' legend by introducing new characters that the reader truly cares about.
Plus the Easter eggs!!! If you think the Marvel cinematic universe has Easter eggs, wait till you read this Ghostbusters series. It is filled with Easter eggs that will bring a smile to your face, without distracting you from the story. I can't tell you how many times I've caught myself laughing out loud when I notice one of these Easter eggs.
But I think what I love the most so far about this series (I'm only on volume 3) is that it is fun. The stories are serious when they need to be, but never lose their sense of humor. Much like the films. It truly has action, adventure, and comedy. So if you are tired of the serious, dark nature tone that some comics have embraced, then check out Ghostbusters. This series allows you to have fun!
