Can’t wait until next week for issue #6? Get a taste of what to expect now with 7 pages of a sneak preview!
I’m going to have to stop screaming here at the office – I’m scaring the straights.
IDW editor Tom Waltz has dropped this bomb into my email box.
Starting September 2011, IDW (and judging from the following one-page ad, Dapper Dan) are putting out a monthly Ghostbusters comic!
IDW Editor, Tom Waltz, posted a sneak-peek of the B cover for the upcoming Con-Volution holiday one-shot, over at GBFans.com (thanks Tom.) The homage to Archibald McNeal Willard’s patriotic classic Spirit of ’76, is perfectly executed by Nick Runge. Where can I sign up for the United States of Ghostbusters?
This holiday one-shot hits stores in late June and is written by Keith Dallas and Jim Beard, with interior art by Josh Howard of Dead@17 fame!
The issue will likely be solicited in the March Diamond catalog, so be sure to stop by your local comic shop and let them know you want one (or two, if you want both covers) put aside for you.
Readers will recall we’d previously mentioned that rumblings had started over IDW’s next one-shot Ghostbusters comic, entitled CON-volution.
Well, writer Jim Beard popped into the PC comments to share some more info;
Hi, all. Jim Beard here, one half of the writing team of CON-VOLUTION.
The holiday in question here is 4th of July, sometimes known as Independence Day (or for our friends across the Pond, “that little 1776 uprising”). Rest assured that suitable nods to said holiday are made.
Plus, yeah, Keith Dallas and I consider Comic-Con a holiday, regardless 😉
Hope you will take a look when its out or order in advance – we’re dead excited about it and thrilled to pieces that Josh Howard is illustrating it. Gives the book a ghost of a chance, you might say.
Thanks for all the chatter about the book!
Btw, IIRC, there’s only two covers and they come in a 1:1 ratio at the comic shops. They’re both AMAZING. And as the plan stands now, both Keith and I will be at SDCC signing copies and would love to meet and and all ‘Busters fans.
