Ghostbusters International: 11/08/16

Ghostbusters International by Erik Burnham

Ghostbusters International by Erik Burnham is the continuation of the Ghostbusters Comic. Like the first four issue road trip plot, the Ghostbusters are called away on a series of missions outside of New York City.

New York City despite it's relative youth compared to similarly sized cities in the Old World, is known to be haunted. London with its centuries of history should be known for ghosts, but given the city's pride in having a stiff upper lip, is probably perpetually nonplussed by the supernatural. Londoners, though, have a problem with extra-terrestrials. On the continent, though, there are two cities with enough gruesome history to warrant paranormal activity: Paris and Venice.

Their first adventure takes them to Venice and an abandoned island nearby. Islands are usually abandoned with good reason and in a world where ghostbusting is a viable career choice, there's bound to be some truth behind the curses and hauntings.

The second adventure takes them to Paris. Like the adventures in the art museum in the second film, this time it's mood slime in the Louvre. Unfortunately for these four, the ghosts don't automatically put everything back the way it was as they do for Erin, Abby, Jillian, and Patty!

There are lots of strings left dangling at the close of this book. Namely, there's the question of who is behind the sudden uptick in big scale hauntings in Europe. There are living people behind it and there is obviously a big demon or something nasty coming. There is also the mess that the Ghostbusters have left at each of their assignments and the consequences for them.

Five stars
