“GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON” Part 2! Okay. So. It seems as though there are giant robots who can disguise themselves as vehicles out there in the universe, and, as it happens, one of them has taken the place of Ecto-1. When the Ghostbusters discover this replacement, they naturally have a lot of questions—and this time, even the boys in gray might not believe the answers!

Review: Transformers/Ghostbusters #1

Transformers/Ghostbusters #1

Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 shouldn’t work. One has to do with robots and the other ghosts. In fairness, Transformers did have the ghost of Starscream haunting Cybertron for a bit. But, the concept just sounds so out there. But it works. It really works and does so very well. Both Transformers and Ghostbusters are celebrating 35 years this year and IDW Publishing has put together this miniseries to celebrate (as well as Hasbro with the toy spinoff).

The story spins the original Ghostbusters film a bit with Gozer winding up on Cybertron a little after the Autobots fled the planet. From there the journey heads to Earth where a signal is discovered by the Autobots that they must investigate. And, the two teams come together.

What’s interesting is writer Erik Burnham spins familiar things we’ve seen mixing it up enough to be original but also leaving enough to be familiar. The new Autobot Ecto has a personality that is straight out of the Ghostbusters and the art by Dan Schoening feels like a combination of the Transformers and Ghostbusters cartoons.

All of it comes together to what is a surprisingly fun comic. I finished it with a smile on my face and wanting to read more immediately. It’s all set up but it’s a good one that’ll get you to want to come back for more. And it works really well using familiar things with a slightly different spin.

Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 is a comic I’m honestly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I went in thinking a simple cash grab and came out smiling and wanting more. It’s a celebration of two properties that feel so far apart but its shown can work together.

Ghostbusters: Crossing Over

Erik Burnham (w) • Dan Schoening (a & c)

All the Ghostbusters—the originals, the ladies of the 2016 film, and beyond—come together against a threat too powerful for any team to handle alone. For a while now, the original Ghostbusters have had access to an interdimensional portal that has given them all-new ways to research the paranormal and consult with Ghostbusters throughout the multiverse… but they haven’t shared this tech with any of those other Ghostbusters, and some don’t think that’s fair. That’s why, after a chance meeting, Jillian Holtzmann and Ron Alexander have decided to right this wrong and cobble together their own working portal… which unintentionally unleashes the contents of the Ghostbusters’ Containment Unit! Collects all eight issues of Ghostbusters: Crossing Over and the Ghostbusters 2018 Annual.
