Ghostbusters: Past, Present, and Future #1

Ghostbusters: Past, Present, and Future #1 (IDW Publishing)
By Rob Williams, Diego Jourdan & Nick Runge

Hardcore Ghostbusters fans, such as myself, remember the classic Christmas episode of the cartoon show where they accidentally busted the Ghosts of Christmas before they could redeem Ebenezer Scrooge. This special goes to the same well, but it pulls out a totally different story. A millionaire, plagued each Christmas by a pair of ghosts, offers the boys a ridiculous amount of money to clean them out, but Venkman’s inner Scrooge plots to keep non-partner Winston out of the loop. The story and the resolution are really good, really surprising. Williams has found a great way to use Dickens as the base of his story without just imitating the old Christmas Carol story yet again.
