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.

Since then I had mostly forgotten about… Read More

Unbeknownst to me and I’m guessing most ghostheads the real,… Read More

That also had me thinking about MAD Movie Classics (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, February 7, 2015) special. I asked at Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page if someone had a digital copy of either publication. While their hasn’t… Read More
