Ghostbusters: Crossing Over: 03/07/19

Ghostbusters: Crossing Over

Ghostbusters: Crossing Over by Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening is the largest omnibus of Ghostbusters comics so far. This one collects eight issues and the Ghostbuster's annual.

Holtzmann is still hanging with the original Ghostbusters, but has taken on a project with Ron. Meanwhile, Ray has a warning about using the dimensional door while the containment field is being accessed. Ron and Holtzmann, being out doing their own thing, don't get the warning and end up triggering a cascading event where multiple dimensional rifts open up and the contained ghosts escape.

When there is more work to do than the current staff on hand can handle, what do you do? You call all the Ghostbusters. Well, most of them. I guess the TNMT don't count, although they were mentioned.

The remainder of the story is spread across different dimensions with different teams trying to wrangle their ghosts. All the while there is a larger, bigger bad waiting to pounce.

It's a fun read but should be read after reading through previous collections. If you only want to read one other, read Ghostbusters 101: Everyone Answers the Call (2018).

My one complaint is that it was a little long, which is also its selling point. It just could have been a little tighter.

Four stars
