I doubt it does well. GB 101 is barely even a top 300 book, and it's only on #4. It's moving 5k copies a month.

The creative team is also a handicap. Kelly Thompson is horrible. Judging by her try at Ghostbusters: Deviations, she might not have even ever watched the original movie. Plus she managed to crap the bed when given the chance to write Kate Bishop in her own Hawkeye ongoing. A shame, as she's perhaps my favorite Marvel character (at least as written by Matt Fraction).

Corin Howell isn't bad, but that issue of GB International she did put me to sleep.

Waltz is still editing, that's the only hope at this point.

hmm... if IDW puts their D team on it....I wonder if that shows what they really think of the movie itself.


My hope is sony is still forcing this on them.

I really enjoy Thompson, so I'll check out her ACT series.

I don't think Sony has any way to do that. I do think that IDW is well aware that the controversy of the female Ghostbusters and figures a bit of controversy might translate into comic sales. I don't, however, expect readers' curiosity about the crossover to extend to, "Now I really want to read their new solo series."

Not at all. But I suppose there's no harm in them trying.

Their world as portrayed in the movie was not very lived in or fleshed out.

The writer of the comic should have a lot of creative freedom in that regard. And hopefully, the characters will actually have personalities...

I haven't read A-Force but I've hard good things about the stuff she's worked on up to CWII, but then it suffers from even meddling.

I went and checked out that "Deviations" comic (about a timeline where they never crossed the streams), and I actually thought it was pretty funny.

The absurd humor, alongside the apocalyptic theme and solid character moments, made it feel like an authentic Ghostbusters experience.

I've never read any of Kelly Thompson's stuff before, but that issue left a good impression.

I've never seen any of that person's videos but an hour (ok 57 mins) just to say how much it sucks (which I assume is the majority of the video) is pretty much the definition of hating. It's a year later.

and that "funny" voice is awful. Does he use it for everything?

It's satire packed with legitimate criticism.

The voice is only for these specific (Plinkett) videos / other stuff with the same character. The other stuff on the channel is pretty drastically different. I'd suggest giving Best of the Worst a try!

oy..

believe it or not, people are allowed to dislike stuff. just like people are allowed to like stuff and this DESERVES to be disliked from top to bottom.

I'm personally glad people are not afraid to hate on it still. the entire production is a sham that should never have happened.

Exactly what snake said. It's both meant to be funny and point out legitimate problems with the movie. Some movies are just so terrible that you need that long of a video to list and define all the things that went wrong. His reviews of the Star Wars prequels are great.
