Dark Horse to publish "Ghostbusters: Back in Town" comic


Fans may remember that during Ghostbusters Day 2022, Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan announced that publisher Dark Horse would be creating a new Ghostbusters comic miniseries.

In the intervening time there were no updates on the project... until today: via an exclusive update provided by website Screen Rant.

Scheduled to hit comic stands in time to coincide with the release of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, Ghostbusters: Back in Town will see the Spenglers and Gary Grooberson leave Summerville and journey to New York, where not only will they get to grips with the challenges of busting ghosts in the Big Apple, but the shifts in the family dynamics in the wake of Gozer's second defeat.

Spanning four issues, Ghostbusters: Back in Town has been written by David Booher (Specs, Killer Queens & Dungeouns & Dragons), illustrated by Blue Delliquanti (O Human Star, Across a Field of Starlight & Adversary), coloured by Mildred Louis (Agents of the Realm & Rick & Morty) and lettered by Jimmy Bentancourt. Kyle Lambert (Stranger Things) will be providing the main cover artwork, with variant covers provided by Steve Morris (Power Rangers, Un/Sacred & Cimmerian Red Nails)

Ghostbusters: Back In Town #1 is scheduled to go on sale in March 2024.

Ghostbusters HasLab Ghost Trap & PKE Meter Update

Image, along with members of the Ghostbusters community, recently had the opportunity to engage with the Ghostbusters HasLab Development team at Hasbro. During this meeting, the team addressed several of the most burning questions that fans have raised regarding the Haslab Ghost Trap and PKE Meter project.

Customization is a central focus of the development effort, and the Ghost Trap, for instance, will come with all-metal side panels and real screws, which will be a boon for those looking to personalize their equipment. While Hasbro cannot officially recommend modifications to their finalized product, they are confident that they have provided fans with plenty of options to make customization a breeze.

The Ghost Trap, despite being packed with electronics, motors, and other components, will still have room for customization. The team has plans to include a rumble motor for ghost-capturing effects. There's also space within the trap's main body for fans to consider adding a smoke effect. However, Hasbro stresses that they do not endorse these modifications due to regulatory concerns.

The Ghost Trap features a robust and secure XLR-style connector with a threaded connection to prevent the cable from disconnecting. The wire cable between the trap and the pedal is solid wire. Changes to the Ghost Trap and PKE Meter's electronics will be an ongoing process, and they promise that many more features are yet to be revealed. For instance, one recent change made to the programming is how the pedal operates the trap, requiring a single press to open and a single press to close. Additionally, numerous switches and dials will be provided to help set up various functions.

Turning to the PKE Meter, it will feature an EMF detector that responds to sources of ambient energy. It also offers various modes, including a simulated shocking feature using LED lighting. The PKE Meter will have a highly detailed set of sounds embedded, featuring sound effects directly from the production studio. Further refinements are planned for the PKE Meter, such as making the wings (or arms) more slender.

The Ghostbusters HasLab Development team is diligently working to provide fans with a customizable and authentic Ghost Trap and PKE Meter experience. While they encourage personalization, they emphasize that official product modifications are not recommended due to regulatory considerations. As development continues, fans can look forward to even more exciting features and updates on these iconic Ghostbusters gadgets.

There is still time to back the project on Hasbro Pulse click here.

Stay Tuned to for more Ghostbusters.

"Ghostbusters 4" Update: First trailer to go live Wednesday 8th November

Speculation was rife that the first trailer for the next instalment in the Ghostbusters cinematic universe would be unveiled soon following a substantial tease by Sony and Ghost Corps on Halloween night, and the official Ghostbusters social media accounts have been updated with the above teasing video confirmation: the new trailer will go live tomorrow.

We currently don't have the exact time when the new trailer will be released... But based on the data from the teaser and theatrical trailers for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Sony/Ghost Corp had a tendency to upload them in the late morning, so start keeping an eye on your social media feeda in the late morning if you live on the East Coast of the United States and early afternoon if you live in the United Kingdom/Europe.
