Just got an email from 88mph on the situation of the long delayed hardcover edition of Ghostbusters: Legion.
Long time no “talk”, mea culpa as they say.
Mistakes were done, lessons were learned and here we are.
First off, the Hard Cover situation. The only reason why it is impossibly delayed (not canceled) is caused by a low ordering versus a high printing cost. Now is it fans fault ? Hell no. Is it my fault ? Who else really, so yes.
I probably should have done it in soft cover first, maybe I should have done more advertizing, I should have done more of this and less of that. At the end of the day what is important to know is when do you get your copy.
The only way for me to compensate for the low ordering is to finance the difference myself, hence making this process very slow. However there is something you the fans can do to help out by simply letting me know about a few things. I will post polls tonight and just let me know what you think about various things.
Polls will be posted in the Literature section of http://www.weaverhall.com
Again I apologize for the aggravation this is causing everyone but I can say that there is not one day that I don’t work on solving this unfortunate delay. Apologizing does not absolve all my sins, I realize that but I hope you will all participate in the polls which will definitely help.
Mistakes were done, lessons were learned and better things are to come.
Two years after BMG released a bargain edition of the movie soundtrack, Arista records (who originally relased the soundtrack in the 80s) is set to release a new edition February 28th.
The disc is billed as being remastered, but that’s such a vague term it’s tough to say what that means. What is intersting is that the new CD will featuer a 6 minute version of the Ray Parker Jr. theme and Disco Inferno by The Trammps (the one song conspicuously missing on the original release.) The disc has a SRP of

March 14th, Sony Home Entertainment will be releasing “repackaged” editions of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 on DVD. As far as anyone can tell, this is code for “we’ll make more money that way.”
Each movie will be sold for a SRP of $14.94. This is five cents cheaper than the double pack is currently available for.
So, if you want my advice, get the double pack now – it doesn’t look like it or the booklet it comes with will be available for much longer.

I’ve known this was coming together for awhile, but sat on it. Now that it’s done, it’s going to take me a few days to transcribe it and post as an article – but I can’t sit on it any more, so here’s a little surprise for you all (requires an mp3 player).
Please feel free to spread the word.
Serge Lapointe is offering more of his Ghostbusters comic art for sale on eBay – this time it’s another Legion page and a page from comic convention exclusive. Check it out here (other art, including some great GI Joe art is also available.)
