Welcome to Brutal Geeks “5 things you can do to get over the reboot of the Ghostbusters” This list is dedicated to the fans such as myself already knowing the new Ghostbusters will not go well to the fellow fans. Let the healing process continue with part 2!
The next best thing to do is read into the Ghostbusters on going comic series by IDW. The story in the comic series takes place a little while after the events of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. The comic is packed with fan Easter eggs, old baddies, new baddies and even a few surprises thrown into the mix. I highly recommend reading it at the beginning and is a great installment to the franchise.
Did I mention they’ve done crossovers with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Xfiles, and even their cartoon counterparts? Trust me, you’re going to love it.
To make it easier to follow along, pick up Ghostbusters: Total Containment and Ghostbusters: Mass Hysteria. both are hardcover collections of the entire series (minus side things and crossover issues)and will help you get started. If two hardcover books are too much for you price wise, you can always pick up the graphic novels in order. The series is more entertaining and organic than you would expect.
Next time, we get a bit technical.
