November 16th, 2023 by Marc Comments

It’s been a while since we’ve received an update on the upcoming Ghostbusters comic series from Dark Horse, writes out friend Jason over at GBNews, but in today’s news fans have not only been given a new sneak peek, but also a full reveal of the talented team behind the miniseries, and the release date for Issue #1.

Bridging the gap between Ghostbusters: Afterlife and next year’s sequel, Frozen Empire, David Booher will pen the four-issue miniseries, with Blue Delliquanti providing art, while Mildred Louis and Cris Peter will handle colors.

For Issue #1, the standard cover will be done by Kyle Lambert, with a variant created by Steve Morris, with that first look featured below.

Given the title of Ghostbusters: Back in Town, the miniseries will follow Callie, Gary, Trevor, and Phoebe’s move to New York City. To ensure a faithful adaptation, the filmmaking duo of Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan have overseen the project, with Reitman saying:

Our friends at Dark Horse have picked up the Spengler family and hand-delivered them to Manhattan where they will begin their journey back into Ghostbusting! It has been a personal thrill to collaborate with this incredible group of artists and storytellers on new chapters in the proton jungle.

Earlier this year, as part of the annual Ghostbusters Day celebration, artist Blue Delliquanti would provide our first sneak peek at the comic, showing off animated renditions of the Spengler family alongside Gary Grooberson.

Ghostbusters: Back in Town Issue #1 will be available on comic book shelves beginning March 27th, 2024, mere days before Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire lands in theaters on Easter weekend.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
