We may not be seeing them back on the big screen any time soon, but Idw Publishing is reuniting the characters of last year’s Ghostbusters reboot for the new five-issue limited series Ghostbusters: Answer the Call from writer Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Ghostbusters: Deviations) and artist Corin Howell (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ghostbusters: International).
In the exciting series debut, “What Dreams May Come, Part 1!,” while on a routine house call to dispose of a simple Class III spook, Abby, Patty, Erin, and Holtzmann encounter a truly terrifying Class VII that appears to be feeding on fear. Able to create illusions that prey on their greatest fears and with designs on turning the world into its own nightmare dimension (‘natch!), our ladies may have finally met their match!
“After the phenomenal success of teaming the 2016 Ghostbusters with the original Ghostbusters in our dimension-hopping Ghostbusters 101 series, we are very excited to bring »

FM: You have been an actor in Los Angeles for a while now, was it always your dream to be an actor? How did acting come about for you?
It really was. I have always been happy when I am acting. I do have other interests, but nothing has made me feel more alive, more excited than acting. I love portraying a character.
