I’m sure some of you will poke holes in our math, and with good reason. All I can say is, if you want accurate math in your webcomics, go read XKCD.
(That’s not a dig, by the way; XKCD is one of the best webcomics out there, and you absolutely should read it)
Look, we all love Ghostbusters, and when you love something, you want more of it. We also love Dan Aykroyd, who has been beating the drum for a third Ghostbusters for years now. But, and let’s be honest now, Aykroyd’s ideas for the franchise have always outstripped the bounds of feasibility, and thirty years – and one autism diagnosis – have only seen him get further out there. Danny will always be Ray Stantz (and Elwood Blues, and Beldar Conehead, and of course Art Weber), but at this point. As sacreligious as it may be, the idea of Paul Feig’s female-led Ghostbusters reboot may be the lesser of two Class 7 Paranormal Entities.
(One has to wonder if history will repeat, and we’ll also get a female-led Ghostbusters reboot. At least Tracy The Gorilla’s name could stay)
Some more examples of the kind of math out guest utilizes:
How much Matt Ryan gets the look of John Constantine (JC) vs his dialogue being less authentically British than Major Bludd(MB).
The N-factor over the weird changes in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, vs the sky-high E-Factor that it can’t be worse than the last one.
The potential for Aquatic Action(A) from Aquaman, vs the continuing perception of Aquaman as “that lame guy from Superfriends who talks to Fish(F).”
