SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
MY TAKE:Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?Have you or any of your family ever seen a spook, specter, or ghost?If the answer is yes, call the professionals!Psychokinetic energy is on the rise again, business is booming for the boys, and Ray is troubled by what could be a prophetic dream. Is this an ill omen of an upcoming apocaplypse, or just a little indigestion?
If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Well, the answer is pretty obvious if you grew up in the '80s and '90s.
For those who are too young to remember, the Ghostbusters are Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore and Raymond Stanz, and their name is pretty self-explanatory.
In Ghostbusters Volume 1, paranormal activity is up and things are going great for the Ghostbusters. I'm not quite sure where this story fits on the GB timeline, but I think it may be near the start,, because there's a special appearance from a character whom GB fans are sure to recognize.
I liked that this comic book was able to sufficiently develop two story lines in the span of one comic book. This series definitely has a lot of potential.
Thanks to NetGalley and IDW Publishing for the e-ARC. Publication date of Ghostbusters Volume 1 is on March 20, 2012.
- Plot is true to the spirit of the series.

READ IT IF:
- You're a fan of the Ghostbusters.
- You like supernatural/paranormal comic books.
- You miss the '80s.
