I dug the Ghostbusters as a kid and I like Burnham's other work, so I'll do my best to play catch up soon.

ok, I am seriously behind on Ghostbuster related stuff. Who is the girl helping Venkman, and is that Walter Peck working with them? If true, THAT'S AWESOME!!

The art is pretty bad though.

slowly getting into this. Really wasn't a fan of the artwork for the new comics. I really wish they were more detailed, but looking past that I am a huge Ghostbuster fan and the comics are pretty decent.

More detailed? Look at the backgrounds. Dan draws *everything!* (I know, you probably mean you wish the people weren't drawn so cartoony. But this really is the best way to go when likenesses aren't available to us; a realistic Venkman that can't look like Bill Murray tends to take people out of the story even more.)

Besides, I love Dan's work. He does double whatever he's asked for, the crazy Canuck... and he hides dozens of easter eggs in each issue (I haven't caught them all yet.)

The girl is Kylie Griffin -- we stole her from the animated continuity. The comic is firm movie continuity, but we've borrowed from cartoons and games, tweaking as needed to integrate. (And yes, Walter Peck's status as the Ghostbusters' city overseer, taken from the 2008 game, was too good not to use.) Not a follow up to Extreme GB, to answer an earlier question -- cartoon and movie continuities diverge. (:

In any case, we're having fun, and I hope you guys new to the book do, too. Sixth collection of stories comes out next month... (:
