“The Ghostbusters experience some down time, and Egon and Janine decide to take advantage by having a stroll through Central Park. They eventually wind up at the estate her cousin Michele had just inherited and learn that the place is haunted. They meet a ghost named Aaron whose mother was possessed by the spirit of the evil witch Ginerva and ritually killed him. With Ginerva’s host body dead, her essence lies in the hat that Michele had found and put on! With Ginerva in Michele’s body, Alec’s life is in danger unless Egon and Janine can stop her.”

  1. Info: This issue’s title, Hat Trick is a play on words. One definition for hat trick is: “an extremely clever or adroit maneuver.”
  2. Goof, perhaps because no one cared: Issue 28 was published in December, its cover date is marked as February.
  3. Info: When Issue 28 was being published, NOW Comics had filed for bankruptcy. All their comics were cancelled.
