IDW To Publish The Real Ghostbusters Comics Omnibus

I’ve been meaning to post about this, prior to a mid week Independence Day I’ve been putting a lot of time into a new site I’m developing.

I’d like to thank Paul Rudoff from Spook Central for contacting me in regards to IDW Publishing announcing an upcoming The Real Ghostbusters omnibus. Which threw me as like most fans I would have never thought that NOW’s The Real Ghostbusters comics would ever see a new printing. I originally had mixed emotions about it as I’ve invested petty cash and my time into preserving each issue.

It’s only half of Volume I’s run and most likely won’t contain letters to the editor and the additional content which today makes NOW comics great. Which is why I’ve concluded (I think) if the comics find new fans (again) or somehow brings people to Ectocontainment™ to find the original run complete with letters, games, and advertising I’m ok with it.

The Real Ghostbusters Omnibus, Volume 1

James Van Hise, La Morris Richmond, John Tobias, Phil Hester, Evan Dorkin, Howard Bender (w)

Forget Egon’s rules – the streams have been crossed, the dead have risen, and a free-roaming apparition is part of the gang! It’s The Real Ghostbusters, ladies and gentlemen, and in this first volume omnibus collection you can score issues #1-14 of the classic NOW comics series. Be there as Ray, Peter, Egon, and Winston keep doing what they do. After all, they ain’t afraid of no ghosts!

TPB * FC * $24.99 * 354 pages * ISBN 978-1-61377-493-9

IDW’s The Real Ghostbusters Omnibus, Volume 1 is scheduled for November 2012.
