Ghostbusters: Displaced Aggression #2

Ghostbusters: Displaced Aggression #2 (IDW Publishing)
By Scott Lobdell & Ilias Kyriazis

Peter Venkman and his new friend take another jaunt through time, landing in the era of King Arthur, to seek out the lost Ray Stantz. The reunion is a happy one, but soon turns dangerous as a bevy of ghosts controlled by an old foe of Arthur’s take aim at Camelot. The “Ghostbusters in time” concept is turning out to be a lot of fun, and Lobdell is putting together a nice little mystery along the way. Rachel Unglighter, a mysterious character to begin with, is made even more so before this issue is over. We’re now left wondering who — or what — she really is, and what her true motivations are. It’s a much more chilling question than I would have imagined. Kyriazis does some good work here. Often, with these movie adaptations, we see stiff, constrained artwork as the artists try desperately to mimic the actors’ faces exactly. Here, we have an artist create new versions of the characters that evoke the actors without being beholden to them, and that’s just how to make a book like this work. At the halfway point I’m really enjoying this miniseries.
