    By the fourth issue, the series has finally met its stride. Ghostbusters has fully met Escape from New York, and the two distinct ends of action are working together quite well. Hopefully, the story can find a more distinct voice as the issues progress. Ahmed is tackling a story that is beginning to look like something new and interesting, but it’s had to crawl through the muck of a whole lot of world-building to get there. The artwork feels well-rendered. The squad-based drama feels like it’s running on all cylinders. The series can really start to go places in the fifth issue.

    Exposition is a needed element for any story but delivering it in the middle of a limited series leaves readers with the impression that the first few issues were filled with bloat. The artwork is also inconsistent, alternating some great pages with some rougher panels and images.

    I definitely think #4 dragged a bit, but still managed to soar some when it got out of its own way. It’s my hope that as we get deeper into the story — and Cho and company seem to have their mission mostly down pat — we can focus on where this book really excels: smashing the heads of monsters and readers alike with a poignant tale with ample context and meaning.

    The team undertakes a new mission in Terrorwar #4 after a great deal of dialogue laying out their new status quo being compelled to work for government forces. Throughout the first half of the issue, readers are reminded of key mysteries and stakes for the characters who possess them; the resulting dialogue often reads like something from a TTRPG. Doctora Z is introduced as a manic pixie mad scientist who will inevitably offer some answers, but not yet. In the meanwhile, there’s a new conflict with terrors whose muddied appearance makes the conglomeration of needles, buzzsaws, and other phobia-inducing elements less than frightening. The action is a mess, but the cliffhanger and set up for it promise something actually terrifying may still lurk behind the next page.
