What a tremendous series this was. Very, very sad to see it go. The entire series, from start to finish, was as pitch-perfect a Ghostbusters experience as any fan could hope for (outside of the first movie, of course). This final volume wraps things up nicely, if not a little bittersweetly. It's a shame that IDW had to kill the series during the 30th anniversary year. However, IDW has proven time and again that they know what they're doing with licensed properties and I look forward to whatever ...more

The second part of the 30th anniversary adventure and the finale of the ongoing IDW series! Turned out Tiamat wasn't quite beaten in the first part, and now Gozer is also making a comeback. While the storyline is probably humanizing Gozer too much, the rising stakes make for a more serious adventure than usual. I'm not sure I'm big on the details of the resolution, but the rest is great stuff. A worthy ending. (A-)

Tiamat returns to the fray with a vengeance. Ray is possessed and Winston has to make a hard choice which effects more than just him. Unfortunately, the tale falters in this volume as they try to wrap up the storyline too quickly. Hopefully, there will be future tales of the Ghostbusters.

Pardon the outburst. I love this comic but don't track news on any comic I read to any degree, so while I knew Mass Hysteria was going to be an 8-part story (the second half collected here), I wasn't aware until I got to the end that it is the end for the book entirely.

Maybe they'll come back for a third run. They came back for a second, so there's some hope. But let's say this is it for a Ghostbusters ongoing. Let's call it done and judge it as it is currently meant

This was such a fitting end to the ghostbusters series, and it's 30th anniversary celebrations. Burnham created from the start an amazing story which both looks back on previous canon, yet seems to take a completely new take on things. He kept each characters individual voice, and created a great ensemble. At times it did feel as though we were getting to experience a third film installment in book form. It also had emotional moments that can be lacking at times in this format, whether with Venk ...more

The whole comic book series plotline could have been the long awaited 'Ghostbusters 3'. A loving homage to the original series of films.

This series was superb. A true spiritual (no pun intended) follow on from the films. Both story and art have been excellent. I will go back to this again in the future repeatedly.
