Ghostbusters Infestation #1 Review

OK, let's get this out of the way first thing. I. HATE. ZOMBIES. Passionately and completely. I realize that I'm going against the grain of comic book & pop culture, but I'd rather watch-well, almost ANYTHING ELSE in the world, than zombies. Having said that, I was looking forward to this Infestation comic the most, because zombies would fit most naturally into the world of the Ghostbusters franchise. And, in short, I was NOT disappointed.
-First, let's talk about the story. Writer Erik Burnham manages NOT to fall into the trap that a lot of other writers of Ghostbusters comics do-and that is finding a way to write their favorite line of dialogue from the films into the comic. Erik, next time I see you, you're getting a Crunch bar.'ve earned it.(See what I did there?)This comic could very well NOT be a part of the Infestation storyline and it would still be an awesome Ghostbusters comic. Characters are written true to their..well...character, plot moves along at a nice place, we get to see everyone we love, and the ending? I'm not going to spoil it, but AW YEAH!!!
-The art: I've never been a Kyle Hotz fan, but he did some nice work on this. Well played.
Final verdict: BUY IT!
