I haven’t seen the recent Ghostbusters. I wasn’t crazy about the trailer, the plot details I did catch left me very indifferent, and the Internet sucked the fun out of it by arguing over it endlessly for months and months (I blame both sides for that, btw). Basically, any chance the movie had to make me want to watch it had been exhausted by the time it came out. It’s not the actresses fault I didn’t want to see it, It’s Sony’s for marketing it horribly (Seriously, why not release that movie around Halloween?)
That said, this pitch for an upcoming Ghostbusters comic from IDW sounds like something I’d love to read. Both teams are involved and the description actually reads more like the Ghostbusters movie that would’ve gotten me in the theater.
People tell me the comics have been pretty great. This is a limited series it seems, so it might a good one to jump on for a fun, short ride. Preorder at your comic shop and wait patiently for when it drops March 22, 2017.
