'Ghostbusters: Get Real'by Erik Burnham and art by Dan Schoening gets the IDW Ghostbuster team and the "Real Ghostbusters" together in a dimension spanning story.
The set up for this issue happened with the Ghostbusters/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover which showed that alternate dimensions can exist (at least for this series). It all goes wrong when the elder god Proteus wants to get revenge on the team, and they find themselves face to face with....themselves, but from another dimension. Proteus is bent on their destruction, so he creates a three headed dog ghost that will track down the correct team of Ghostbusters. Fortunately, there is still equipment that got built in the encounter with the Turtles that can be used to set everything right.
I found it a bit confusing just because I thought the IDW Ghostbusters WERE the real ghostbusters. That is probably explained prior to where I came in. But I did enjoy the interplay between the alternate worlds teams and also the cameos by even stranger versions of the team. I think I liked the Turtles crossover a bit more, but this was fun too.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from IDW and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
