Ghostbusters Get Real, Jubilee and Chicken Little?

Ah.... another rainy Saturday and what better way to spend the afternoon than by getting a couple of new trade-collections of some mini-series?

The first of which is Ghostbusters: Get Real, which builds on the premise of the Real Ghostbusters episode 'Janine Melnitz Ghostbuster' by detailing events that took place after Proteus went to capture our heroes at Rockefeller Plaza... with the RGB versions of Egon, Peter, Ray and Winston ending up in the universe of the IDW Ghostbusters. With this story taking place after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Crossover, everything falls into place logically with how to the get RGBs back home. The artwork is what really sells this with the stuff set in the RGB universe looking nearly perfect with the episode this comic is based on while adding onto it in huge ways. The primal god of Proteus really benefits from this story as he was clearly on Gozer levels of power, but with how easily he was dealt with in the cartoon, we didn't get an insight to how powerful he really is. Also the cameos by the Extreme Ghostbusters and the team of the Ghostbusters: Santucm of Slime video game is pretty sweet.

The other comic I got was the trade-collection of Jubilee from Marvel, which is the only mini-series that solely focus on the X-Man of the same name, she goes to Los Angeles lives with her aunt, goes to a normal High School and a whole lot of teen drama... basically Jubilee having a bit of a normal life. Of course needless to say none of that normal-ness last very long, and things gradually get a little typical with mutants, assassins and all the other usual antics. The story itself is solid, but the artwork can be down right horrific at times. Still a nice addition to my collection.

Of course on tonight's twitch broadcast I was playing Chicken Little... yes the game based on the Disney movie of the same name. Why? Because my twitch channel was built on variety, just look over this past week which featured BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma, Final Exam, Castle of Illusion, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Borderlands 2 and Star Trek Online. Besides I like being able to play something totally random. Anyway the game has some nice variety but the platforming for me gets really frustrating towards the end of the game. I couldn't finish the game but Chicken Little will be back!
