Diego, CA (November 14, 2012) – The Ghostbusters are gone, spirited away by some
dastardly demons from another dimension! But spectral shenanigans haven't ceased
in the city that never sleeps, meaning a new group will need to step up and don
the proton packs. IDW Publishing and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are pleased
to announce the launch of an all-new GHOSTBUSTERS ongoing comic series, picking
up where the first mega-hit ongoing volume left off. The Ghostbusters creative
super-team of Erik

second ongoing volume.

New Ghostbusters” storyline, and will include

predecessors, or will they share the same fate?
GHOSTBUSTERS ongoing series for IDW has been the highlight of my editorial
career,” said series editor Tom
Waltz. “Way back when we started, we prayed we’d be able to finish four
issues. And now, sixteen issues in the can and a new ongoing volume ready to
rock the world, I’m proud to say GHOSTBUSTERS has proven to be a tremendous
success for IDW, and that's completely owed to our awesome fans and the
super-powered creative team concocting comic book magic month after
