In the latest entry into Mass Hysteria, an old character favorite is introduced in this comic mythos! The Ghostbusters are finally piecing the clues together to who Tiamat is and her agenda. My favorite Extreme Ghostbuster, Eduardo Rivera, gets some panel action!

There wasn’t anything plot-wise that was shocking or surprising. This is the rising action to the climax of the story, so taking that into consideration, one can forgive this. What saves this particular issue are the new characters brought into the story. This not only ties with the original material/film, but also expands and opens the story for this current run. One can’t help but become excited at the prospect some fascinating tales are to come from this. Also, there are some great easter eggs throughout; pay particular attention to the pages in Ray’s Occult Books shop!

Tiamat may be Dan Schoening’s most terrifying design for an entity. Every panel she’s in, just packs a punch. This is in no small part to Luis Antonio Delgado’s color work. The background colors really bring the attention and focus to that character and sent the dark tone in those panels. This is just a great artistic team!

Ghostbuster fans need to pick this up. New reader’s may want to pick up the previous two issues to catch-up. Stick with this story, it’s bound to be good.


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.”
