The NEW Ghostbusters

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE IDW INTRODUCES THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS THIS FEBRUARY New series following IDW’s ongoing Ghostbusters San Diego, CA (November 14, 2012) – The Ghostbusters are gone, spirited away by some dastardly demons from another dimension! But spectral shenanigans haven’t ceased in the city that never sleeps, meaning a new group will need to step up and don the proton packs. IDW Publishing and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are pleased to announce the launch of an all-new GHOSTBUSTERS ongoing comic series, picking up where the first mega-hit ongoing volume left off. The Ghostbusters creative super-team of Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening (along with series colorist-extraordinaire Luis Antonio Delgado) return to bust out more ectoplasmic excitement in this second ongoing volume. “We’ve seen the Ghostbusters deal with a newly minted servant of Gozer, a child-possessing demon, the Spirit of Death, a cross-country road trip and sloppy business rivals,” explained writer Burnham. “But we’ve never seen what might happen if something got the jump on them. This story takes a look at what might happen if the Ghostbusters were abducted. The city still needs paranormal exterminators, after all.” GHOSTBUSTERS #1 marks the exciting beginning of “The New Ghostbusters” storyline, and will include four covers by Schoening, each featuring one of the New Ghostbusters. Additionally, each issue will contain an all-new REAL GHOSTBUSTERS 2-page back-up story written and drawn by Burnham. Kicking off in February, will the New Ghostbusters be able to rescue their predecessors, or will they share the same fate? “Editing the GHOSTBUSTERS ongoing series for IDW has been the highlight of my editorial career,” said series editor Tom Waltz. “Way back when we started, we prayed we’d be able to finish four issues. And now, sixteen issues in the can and a new ongoing volume ready to rock the world, I’m proud to say GHOSTBUSTERS has proven to be a tremendous success for IDW, and that’s completely owed to our awesome fans and the super-powered creative team concocting comic book magic month after month!” Fans of the series should ask their local comic book shop about the variant Xermanico cover, and the unique variant tribute cover by Schoening, only for loyal subscription box customers! GHOSTBUSTERS #1 ($3.99, 32 pages,...

Ernie Hudson hospitalized (don’t panic) – Free Comic Book Day appearance cancelled

Ernie Hudson was due to appear at this Saturday’s Free Comic Book Day event in Hilliard, Ohio, but has been admitted to hospital for emergency surgery. Before everyone panics, the report is that it’s to deal with an abscess in his hip. Abscesses are pockets of infection, and while something that has to be taken very serious, lest it lead to all manner of problems, like blood poisoning, the treatment of them isn’t usually something to panic about. So, for now, everyone send happy thoughts and best wishes Ernie’s...
