We’ve all been curious about what Tristan Jones was bringing to the table, ever since his name was dropped along with the rest of the creative team of IDW’s upcoming monthly Ghostbusters comic.
Well, now we know; he’s providing a monthly back-up feature in each issue, which supplements the all the Ghostbusters cases. Best if he describes it himself.
Basically the idea is that each issue will feature files audited by Walter Peck as supplemental material to each story, looking at the entities encountered throughout IDW’s run (which includes everything before INFESTATION as well), staff profiles, equipment data, and so forth. It will also ONLY be appearing in the individual issues from what I currently understand.
Having seen what’s coming up in the comics and helped create a few of the beasties so far, I can safely say that there’s going to be some really cool things gracing the pages of not just this, but the Dan and Erik’s core pages as well.
I really do have to thank Tom Waltz more than I think I’m capable of — I’m really excited to be working on this, and hopefully more in the future!
The very first file will feature something familiar to everyone, which I hope you’ll dig but I do implore you — TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! And make sure you get in and tell your local comic shop that starting in September, IDW’s publishing Ghostbusters and that you want it! Books like this rely on preorder numbers to stay alive, so if you want to see more, make sure you get in and get your orders in in advance!
Thanks to everyone for their support (and patience)!
Hell yeah! And he’s right – do make sure, as best you can, pre-order the books. Comics live and die by their pre-orders, so it is critically importantly that the first book sell well. Even if you can’t pre-order it, you can always ask your local shop if they’re bringing it in. The more people ask about it, the more they’ll consider buying in.
