This one was really fun! 

It felt like an episode of the cartoon, although admittedly not one of the more 'deep' episodes.

I liked Peter's show of solidarity for Slimer and though I found slimer irritating in the cartoons, I really liked him in this one.

It was a bit of a shame the Spooks Away storyline had been done in both the IDW Prime universe and RGB universes so it did feel a bit like a re-hash of something done before, but I liked the unique way they referenced the EGB Universe as a way of creating new tech.

The EGB 35th Anniversary comic was definitely my favourite out of them all. 

I loved Egon and Janine's 'date', and the Eduardo and Kylie relationship. The conversation about reincarnation was hilarious, the friendly ghost feeling sorry for its bear host, Eduardo talking to the animals, Slimer mimicking Eduardo during his conversation with Kylie...

The art was absolutely fantastic - I loved that there was so much going on in the background as well. The story was fun and touching. It was a nice alternative to the zap 'em and trap 'em stories.

I really hope there is more EGB from this creative team because they hit gold with this one.

The only thing I've heard complaints about, and I kinda share it, is that when Egon calls Venkman, Venkman for some reason looks like IDW Venkman. It's not like they didn't have two episodes with an official EGB design of Venkman (along with Ray and Winston), so it's a rather strange little bit that stands out.

But that's on the whole a really minor thing in an otherwise enjoyable story.

(Just as a reminder, this wasn't Jim Beard and Kieth Dallas's first Ghostbusters story for IDW--they cowrote the "Con-Volution" one shot in 2010, which I recall enjoying.)
