The writing's good, but the art style used for the 80s dimension is so cartoonish. It's just weird and... kinda disturbing, especially when the reboot team are drawn to look like their actual actors.
(Or is it meant to signify they're actually not the exact same universe as the original movies?)

Also Yates's pettiness is kinda irritating.

It's the dimension of the 80's cartoon series. They're drawn to look identical to that style.

I imagine it is because Dan Ackroyd, Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis' estate, and -especially- Bill Murray would charge heavily for the use their likenesses, and have the resources to sue IDW into oblivion if they used them without permission.

The 2016 team's likenesses are probably still licensed to the production company, but only Kate McKinnon's character resembles the genuine article in a more than superficial way.

I'm pretty sure they're talking about the Real Ghostbusters universe.

Since both the original team and the Answer the Call team are drawn in the same style.

Then your comment is confusing, since there's absolutely no difference between the styles used for the two teams.

I will agree with you on one thing, though - Yates' attitude was extremely annoying for most of the series. (Then they explained it in a way that was completely in character.)

I know likeness rights are an issue but it is strange when you have ten characters originally played by real people but hardly any of them look like the real actors.

Meanwhile you have certain artists who clearly use real people as reference for characters that only exist as lines on paper.

No, that's another Ghostbusters team. They've met.

They've also crossed over with TMNT.

OH MY GOD THE CARTOON CAMEO WAS SO AWESOME :DDD

I adored that cartoon as a kid. Watched it religiously. I'm so happy it got to make a cameo ^___^

It's not a random cameo - the Real Ghostbusters universe was the second one the Ghostbusters encountered (the first they encountered was the IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...getting the Turtles home was why they built the thing). This happened in the Ghostbusters Get Real mini.

For a random cameo - Janine briefly dated a guy who looked just like the Real Ghostbusters Egon (when she met RG Egon, she was understandably confused).

Get Real is a great series, you should definitely check it out if you can find it.

(Actually, all the IDW series since the ongoing have been...probably the pre-ongoing minis, too, but I haven't read them.)

I haven't read "The Other Side," and the Infestation crossover was pretty forgettable, but other than that they were all good. I highly recommend them to everybody

Also they borrowed one of them for awhile when their prime universe counterpart went missing

This version of Peter Venkman (not the Real Ghostbusters version) seems more like John Larroquette than like Bill Murray. I mean, he's still recognizably Peter, but too smiley.
