Between the storm of zombie energy loosed from the Infestation and the leak in the Ghostbusters’ containment unit, things are getting pretty heated in the great city of New York. The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man has been cut loose and is tearing through town again, but Egon has a plan. Zombies seem to act as a natural ghost containment unit.. what if they combine Stay-Puft with the marauding zombies?

Well, it ain’t nothing good.

Erik Burnham and Kyle Hotz have come together to give us hands-down the best installment of the Infestation crossover. The Ghostbusters are great characters in their own right, of course, but this particular creative team is really adept with them. They depict the characters in a way that’s perfectly consistent with the films, tremendously funny, and just a little bit menacing in the first place. Hotz’s artwork is just what this title needs. He managed to evoke the original actors very nicely, and the zombie Marshmallow Man is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. The book is great, and I’m tremendously excited by the news that a new ongoing series is in the works for later this year.
