Last issue, Janine’s niece and her friends accidentally bring a ghost through the Ghostbusters dimensional gate. This issue follows the fallout of them bringing that ghost over to their dimension.
This was a great issue, and Burnham manages to write a cohesive story of bringing the two teams together. Seeing the two teams meet for the first time was interesting, and it created some funny dialog between them. They eventually do get down to why their worlds are merging, and how the Ghostbusters concept ties into their first fight with Gozer. I was actually surprised in how Burnham brings that topic up, and make it work within the Ghostbusters realm. Also, Holtzman is in this issue a lot, compared to the other members of her team. It’s nice that Burnham expands upon her character a little, but I think she should’ve been dialed back a bit. At least we get to see where she lives, and how good of a roommate she is. The pacing was well done and keeps you entertained throughout the issue.
I don’t have any problems with the artwork in this issue. Shoenings art is amazing, and his style lends itself to the 2016 Ghostbusters. The Character designs are still fantastic, and I like the way the film Ghostbusters look. Only one new ghost appears in this issue, but it still has a unique look to it. The panel layouts are smooth, and makes the art flow surprisingly well. Also, I love how the covers for each issue combine to make on big image. Delgado’s colors are impressive and the lettering this issue was solid as well.
Ghostbusters 101 #3 was a fun issue, and sets up how the two teams will stop the merging of their worlds. If you’re a fan of the Ghostbusters, pick this issue up.
