In 2011 I began preserving The Real Ghostbusters Magazine(s) (Ghostbusters Firehouse section) from my physical collection. The project wouldn’t have started or evolved without Paul Rudoff (Spook Central) or Matthew Jordan (Ghostbusters Wiki). The project as I knew it has been completed long since Ghostbusters had its 30th anniversary. “Five years later” as Paul completed his RGBs Magazine collection he contacted us about a regular cover for Fall 1989. (Ghostbusters Firehouse page) The physical issue I… Read More

On July 15, 2016 Ghostbusters: Answer The Call premiered to US theaters, adding to 32 years of Ghostbusters history. If you weren’t on this etherial plain or too young between 1984-1997 and are looking for Cliffs Notes about the evolution of Ghostbusters, UK magazine Geeky Monkey has ghostheads covered. In July 2016 I had never heard of Geeky Monkey. At the time driving just to the Barnes & Nobles locations near the old place wasn’t… Read More

About two months ago as I was working on the Ghostbusters NYC website (also known for web site purposes as Ghostbusters Firehouse) I decided to begin moving the once scanned/current PDF files of Ghostbusters/The Real Ghostbusters reading material to Ghostbusters Firehouse for realism and to save space at Ecto-Containment. Every smaller PDF file wasn’t complete in February. Something I hadn’t realized during most of the uploads. Naturally as is the case when one… Read More

Ghostheads have known for years that Ghostbusters II has enough deleted scenes to make a feature out of. For example, a scene where Louis Tully in the Firehouse sets a trap (um just about literally) to catch Slimer because the overgrown ghost ate his lunch. Louis uses a proton pack and damages a ceiling or wall. One of the cut scenes from Ghostbusters II involved the ending. For the unfamiliar the guys… Read More

2015 Update – All NOW The Real Ghostbusters comics have been moved to Ghostbusters NYC/Firehouse. After putting the PDF file on the site for Issue 4, talking about these comics, and with a change in my schedule I was feeling pretty motivated. I spent the middle of week creating the rest of the NOW comics which also includes Volume 2, 3-D Special, the 1992-1993 annuals, The Real Ghostbusters Starring In Ghostbusters II,… Read More

August has been a pretty busy month for me personally. Some of which has been going on since late Spring. Travel and appointments prevented me from posting The Real Ghostbusters news and site updates. Also, after spending 6 months of scanning and cleaning up NOW Comics’ The Real Ghostbusters comics, I was feeling burnt out. At the time I didn’t know I couldn’t get back to enjoying Ghostbusters/The Real Ghostbusters again for almost… Read More
