Ghostbusters, Volume 2: The Most Magical Place On Earth (Ghostbusters: Ongoing #2)

4.1  ·  Rating Details ·  205 Ratings  ·  16 Reviews
The smash-hit ongoing series continues in this second story arc Thanks to the contract they signed, the Ghostbusters are temporarily barred by Walter Peck from taking any work (without his express permission) in New York City. The Ghostbusters skirt the edict by taking a job in Schenectady. It's a simple haunted amusement park upstate - what could possibly go wrong? Plus, ...more

I actually enjoyed this second volume of Ghostbusters more than the first. Perhaps it was because it didn’t try to shoehorn in the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and got on with a more original storyline.

Also, a clown vomited ectoplasmic bats at one point. I didn’t realise how much I needed that in my life.

Issue three focused on Peter Venkmann and really highlighted how well the writer has captured the character's ‘voice’. I can actually ‘hear’ Bill Murray saying his lines from this issue. The other

After a mediocre first volume, I am happy to see that Ghostbusters as a comic form has finally reached the awesomeness button, and holds nothing back while trying to press it fully down. Almost there, but not quite.

With The Most Magical Place On Earth we get all the juicy parts of ghosts, haunting and possession. There is rich colors, slime, action packed ghost hunting and fighting, some mystery, and a deeper look at a few of the main characters; Dr. Peter Venkman and Dr. Egon Spengler.

When I was a kid I remember really wanting to see Ghostbusters. The main reason was because I wanted to see the Stay Puft Marshmallow man because he was cute and during this point in my childhood I was going through a phase where if it was cute I wanted to either see the movie it was in or get a stuffed toy of it. I blame seeing Gremlins for this.

Yet when I saw Ghostbusters on TV sitting on the floor in my grandma's guest bedroom I was a bit confused. It took me 20 years and a recent viewing of

Second verse, same as the first, with everyone still wonderfully in character and the overall plot moving forward nicely while the arc-of-the-moment unfolds. I want to take a moment and give special notice to Dan Schoening, the series artist, who does an amazing job of balancing his fun, cartoon-inspired (general cartoon-inspired, not specifically any Ghostbusters cartoon) pages with some truly creepy and unsettling horror pages when it's time to bust the ghosts. I was surprised to find out he d ...more

Yet another great story arc from IDW, again I couldn't put the book down and now can't wait to start the 3rd volume. Picking up from the last volume it keeps the series fun and entertaining while it also starts to build it's own legacy in the franchise. The writer knows these characters as well as Ackroyd and the late Ramis and starts to build and flesh them out in a way the films don't have the time to. In this issue it's focus is on Venkman and Spengler and again doesn't disappoint. The art ...more

The stories in the second volume delve into more original territory, and the portion that made this a four star experience for a long-time Ghostbusters fan like myself has to be the Tobin short near the end. It was suitably creepy, contained an interesting reference to the second film, and the artwork was striking. Volume two signals a break from mere video game tie-ins, and now I'm interested in continuing the series.

The first of this series I found enjoyable from a throwback standpoint, and the fact that I am an avid fan of the movies. However I found this one was a bit of stretch: I feel like they are trying just a little too hard to continue this story line. It almost felt borderline cheesy, but it wasn't totally unenjoyable either.

The Ghostbusters are asked to investigate a fairground that is infested by ghosts. This is a brilliant read, I can hear all the actors voices. I particularly liked how one of the characters talked to the ghost, because as we all know Ghostbusters aren't afraid. There's a lot of action and jokes, it really captures the spirit of the original. Great for kids. A really good read.

Another great collection. The three parter is good, particularly in its exploration of Venkman, but the concluding Egon-centric story is a cracker. Burnham really understands these characters.

The PCOC back ups are also excellent.

I'm loving this series, and the world it's building.

The writing and art team continue to nail everything that makes Ghostbusters special. That's all you really need to know to read this or the first volume.

Really enjoying the series so far. The comics are taking it into a less slapstick direction, which I like. A tease here, too, about Dana's whereabouts. Hope there's more there.

Given me by a friend; this is a beautiful mashup of every incarnation of Ghostbusters EVAR.
