This wasn’t entirely unexpected news. As stated in the press release Hasbro and Sony are partners with the recent (not talked about by me yet) Ghostbusters Transformers Ecto-1 Ectrotron. Which is also part of the current Ghostbusters/Transformers comic book series from IDW Publishing. The fun part for ghostheads is Hasbro ties (sorta) to the original The Real Ghostbusters. Kenner was the “master toy company” for real Ghostbusters toys during 1980 something. Sometime after the series… Read More

This week two new Ghostbusters items to collect and experience are out in the expanded multiverse. Sony’s Playstation 4 VR game, Ghostbusters: Is Hiring, (GBI Blog Post, March 21, 2017) and IDW Publishing Ghostbusters 101. (GBI Blog Post, December 21, 2016) It was a great opportunity for Germain Lussier of io9 to talk to Ivan Reitman about where Ghostbusters has been and where it may be heading.

IDW Publishing and Funko took what was probably an awesome meeting where the outcome will see Funko Pop Movie/TV characters in one off comics. Naturally you couldn’t have a Funko comics universe without Ghostbusters Pop Movies figures. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 16, 2014) Before they skyrocketed straight into the cultural zeitgeist, Funko’s Pop! vinyl figures started out for sale in comic shops. This May, they’re going back to the beginning by teaming with… Read More

IDW Publishing announced they’re deviating 5 of their bigger titles! :O At the top of the list is G.H.O.S.T.B.U.S.T.E.R.S™ ::lasers shooting around somewhere::: The Deviations series explores the what if, a point in time where our heroes  didn’t take a path or make a choice we know them for.

IDW Publishing Ghostbusters comic news out of the recent New York Comic Con. It was announced (um probably at NYCC) that IDW will publish international adventures of the comic Ghostbusters. The title will appropriately be named Ghostbusters International. As a guy who once owned and paid way too much for the domain name I wish this part of the comic series had been around over the last decade. The basic premise of… Read More

Comic Vine has posted their exclusive preview for IDW Publishing‘s Ghostbusters Get Real Issue #3. If you don’t mind spoilers, pages from Issue 3 are further down. Ecto-Containement won’t post spoiler pages, I did want to provide brief information and cover art.

Remember when I wrote three days ago about the timeline of events with IDW’s upcoming Ghostbusters annual? “That’s ok, I don’t either.” Today straight from Spook Central’s Facebook page (at least where I read it) comes the necessary information along with our first look at the cover.

When I think Ghostbusters annuals, I tend to think about the two The Real Ghostbusters annuals (Ghostbusters Firehouse) and don’t usually think of newer Ghostbusters specials. While I’m a guardian of The Real Ghostbusters comics, (Ghostbusters Firehouse) I’m not always as connected to IDW Ghostbusters comics. Or most comics for that matter. Erik Burnham, after being asked posted that a 2015 Ghostbusters annual should go on sale this coming November. After a different follow… Read More

West End Games, Inc. published Tobin’s Spirit Guide (for use with Ghostbusters™ A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game) during Ghostbusters’ infancy. During the internet age ghostheads have been making fan made versions which can encompass more then the films and the original RPG books. What can be included is unnaturally personal preference. Like this one (GB Inc. Blog Post, January 26, 2015) from Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante. His version of Tobin’s clocks in at 496… Read More

On June 18, 2014 (GB Inc. Blog Post) I wrote about IDW would discontinue publishing monthly Ghostbusters comics. While ghostheads wouldn’t have another years worth of Ghostbusters comics their would be mini-series. That’s cool, definitely better then no new Ghostbusters comics. Not even a month later IDW Publishing announced (GB Inc. Blog Post, July 15, 2014) the first series, a Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cross over. When our childhoods collide. So… Read More

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… Read More
