Publisher: IDW Publishing
Writer:  Erik Burnham
Artist: Dan Schoening
Colours: Luis Antonio Delgado
Lettering: Neil Uyetake
Release Date: 17th October 2018

Well, things are wrapping up nicely here. The Ghostbusters from across the multiverse have managed to capture some of the worst ghosts that the team has ever had to ever face, and now it’s just time to say our farewells. But hang on, there’s still one more issue to go after this, right? That’s not good, as it seems that she’s finally making her move, a move that has been half a decade in the making…

Here we are at the penultimate issue, and things are coming together nicely ahead of what promises to be a brilliant conclusion next month. Erik Burnham has crafted this miniseries so that it gives us some payoff to a lot of things. From character moments, inventive fight scenes and one particular moment that hints at even better things to come after this series. This is just a great issue at the same level of quality I expect from this team by now. We get some good scenes from Ghostbusters across the franchise, along with a chance to see some the greatest ghosts from the last the years of comics. It’s safe to say Erik Burnham knows exactly what he’s doing here.

The same could easily be said as well for the artistic partnership of Dan Schoening and Luis Antonio Delgado. The pair bring their excellent skill here, with every character looking unique and recognisable while still maintaining the look of their original source material, such as the ‘80s or ‘90s animated series or the cell shaded video games. As you might have guessed, every character pops with a skill that only this team can provide.

In the end there’s not much more to say that I haven’t already said in my previous reviews. This is really damn good, and if you love Ghostbusters then you owe it to yourself to read this. I can’t say much more without ruining the final page surprise, so all I’ll say is you’re definitely going to want to read the next issue. It’s going to be an epic finale as all this dimension travel has caused no end of chaos and, as we all know, it’s in chaos that she walks…

Rating: 4.5/5.
