This year marks the 35th anniversaries of both Transformers and Ghostbusters and thanks to IDW Publishing we get to celebrate both together. That’s right the latest comic release TRANSFORMERS GHOSTBUSTERS: GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON PART 1 brings these two worlds together in a very interesting way.
GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON PART 1 Spoiler Free Review
Writer Erik Burnham wasted no time getting this story going. The story starts while Cybertron is in a civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. After years of fighting the Autobots fled Cybertron leaving it to the Decepticons and their leader Megatron. Years later the Autobots pick up a Cybertronian distress from the planet Earth. Surprised by this signal the Autobots go to check it out. Once one Earth the Autobots run into the Ghostbusters.
GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON wasted no time to get the action started. From the minute I starting reading I was hooked. All the original characters you grew up with are there and we even get introduced to a new Autobot. The art team of Dan Schoening and Luis Antonio did an outstanding job of making it feel like I was back in the Eighties seeing the Transformers in their original form. They also do an amazing job making the Transformers and Ghostbusters come together on the pages.
In this issue there really wasn’t a lot to complain about. My only wish was that they spent a little more time on Cybertron and what happen there. But I’m sure we will get that in future issues. My only art issue with GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON PART 1 was with the Ghostbusters. The faces really didn’t resemble the Ghostbusters we grew up with and at times kind of distracted me from the story.
My Thoughts on GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON PART 1
Overall, I loved this comic. Not only did it take me back to my childhood it was just fun to read. I am definitely looking forward to future issues. On my Hashtag scale of 10 I give TRANSFORMERS GHOSTBUSTERS: GHOSTS OF CYBERTRON 9 Hashtags. This is a must read for all fans.
