I really apologize to anybody who cares about my blatherings--I never did sit down and compile comments on #4. It was pretty much what we expected--closing the circle with the RGB characters getting to where they were in "Janine Melnitz, Ghostbuster" with a teaser or two to the upcoming annual and GBI/Vol.3.

I will offer the next best thing (or, probably, an even better thing): mrmichaelt's comments on Get Real #4:

Story

Kylie and Janine stranded in Tokyo with the Megatrap holding the Cerberus manifestation... hilarious! Figured it would end in the embassy but too bad they couldn't fit in a panel of Janine calling Peck on the phone and him not believing her or something funny. But that last panel with the ghost. Yeah...

Considering the damage done to the Firehouse from the end of the Mass Hysteria! arc, the TMNT/GB arc and now in this issue... what is the heck is their insurance premiums like?

Rather brilliant to utilize Proteus' pet peeve to weaken him in-story (and set up his demise), show future cases in the RGB, and seed the future of the IDW canon. Obviously one is the Sandman in the upcoming annual but the other three visions... it'll be fun to see how they figure. Also loved the irony of another god forcing Winston to make a hard choice in the Firehouse basement. At least this time, it doesn't involve him dying...shrug.

Favorite line: "We met weird versions of ourselves with boring hair and then got zapped into limbo by some guy in a toga."

As I thought, nice sync up to the end of "Janine Melnitz, Ghostbuster" and neat to see some more 'extra scenes' added in. Nice touch to show Claudia was okay.
