By Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening & Luis Antonio Delgado

Mass Hysteria  is under way and more anomalies begin to occur. A team is sent to Dana Barrett’s apartment to investigate her latest encounter with the supernatural, without the core team knowing. Meanwhile, Peter, Ray and Egon try to make sense of all the events and believe they have a culprit: Tiamat.

This issue was very character-centric, with little plot progression. The most interesting portion of the comic is when Dana is meeting the new members of the Ghostbusters. It’s new ground that Erik Burnham is treading by mixing established film characters with characters from the comic and animated series. It’s a fascinating dynamic. At the end of the issue there is a surprise that I was hoping for that will happen in next month’s issue!

There weren’t any major ghosties for Schoening to bring to life, but his cover with Tiamat is devilishly good! Luis Delgado’s coloring on it was perfect. If a print of it ever goes on sale, let me know! Dan really illustrates Dana Barrett well. He was able to not only have her look like Sigourney Weaver but aged her appropriately.

It is evident that this creative team is very passionate about this property, and that makes all the difference. That passion comes through in every panel drawn and word written.  This issue may have felt slow, but stick with this series!


About The Author Erik Gonzalez

I was exposed to comics early on, one of my earliest vivid memories was picking up the entire run of Dark Horse’s Aliens vs. Predator(1990). Odd and perhaps morbid choice for a kid, I know...At the same time, I was immersed in the pop culture of the time which included, but not limited to: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and of course, Batman: The Animated Series. Upon reflection, it’s fairly evident why I’m such a zealous geek. My day job is in television operations, so basically I’m exposed to media at every turn, which is where I want to be! Writing comic book reviews is another outlet to convey my respect and fanaticism for the this graphic medium. I hope what I have to say will resonate with others and also spark heart-felt discussion. Simon Pegg said it best, “Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
