A ghost ship roams the waters off Long Island, leaving fear -- and ice -- in its wake. The governor calls on the Ghostbusters to stop these spectral sailors and their maritime malevolence... but they'll have to do it without the aid of Egon Spengler, who is currently concerned with rescuing the stolen spirit of Janine Melnitz!
One of the most interesting factors within the Ghostbusters franchise is the ‘kind-of-but-not-really’ romance between Egon and the Ghostbusters’ receptionist Janine. In Ivan Reitman’s 1984 movie, the sexual attraction is often shown by Janine in her casual conversations to the seemingly oblivious Egon who is more focused on saving the world. The 1989 sequel seemed to ignore this plot thread by starting a relationship between Janine and Louis Tully while the cartoon spin-off The Real Ghostbusters expanded on the Egon/Janine relationship further.
Erik Burnham gets this.

Interview conducted by and copyright Edward Gross Man of Steel storyboard artist Jay Oliva has had a long career in animation, where has has brought his storyboarding skills to such TV shows as Extreme Ghostbusters, RoboCop: Alpha Commando, Godzilla: The Series, The Batman, Justice League and The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, as well as the animated films Superman: Dooomsday, All-Star Superman, and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Additionally, he's directed Young Justice, Batman: The Dark Night Returns and the soon to be released Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, among others. In the first part of Vfk's interview with Oliva, we look at the action of Man of Steel, particularly the last twenty minutes or so, exploring the thought process that went into those sequences and, of course, the controversy that has surrounded it. Voices From Krypton: I liked Man of Steel the first time, and I liked it even more the second time. »
Luke Owen reviews the No Longer New Ghostbusers #5...
The Original Ghostbusters are back in Manhattan, picking up the pieces of their interrupted lives. Ray and Egon are concerned about what effects their escape from another dimension may yet hold for the world, and throw themselves into their research, while a decision Janine made when she was busting ghosts comes back to haunt her... all this and more as Ghostbusters continues!
I feel like I owe Erik Burnham an apology. I have been very praising of his work on Ghostbusters (and rightly so) but I was overly critical of his New Ghostbusters run. While it wasn't a bad 4-issue series, I just feel like there was so much more that could have been done with that line-up. Given some time, it could have been a fantastic series as opposed to just being 'good'.
But, while I wished it had lasted longer, »
Luke Owen reviews The New Ghostbusters #2...
The ghost of a notorious killer has begun to haunt New York, and The New Ghostbusters have to stop him before he can pick up where he left off! Meanwhile, the Original Ghostbusters compare notes—trying to figure out where they are, and how to get home...
I was a big fan of last month’s debut of The New Ghostbusters and I am happy to report that the brilliance carries over into #2.
The issue’s story is fairly simple, but it’s a really fun read. The New Ghostbusters are now set up with former Ghost Smasher Ron Alexander but there are problems arising already in the group. Ortiz doesn’t like Alexander’s methods, Janine doesn’t like Alexander in general and the group are being forced into spending more time doing publicity shoots than actual ghost busting. There’s some great »
Luke Owen reviews the first issue in Idw's Ghostbusters series...
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. Will the New Ghostbusters be able to rescue their predecessors, or will they share the same fate?I have been in love with Eric Burnham's run on Ghostbusters for some time now and continue to tell anyone who will listen that they should pick it up. Last year Idw announced they would be starting a new ongoing series of Ghostbusters comic books based around a new line-up of recognisable characters from their cannon. The teases are finally over and The New Ghostbusters are finally here - and it's just as great as ever.
Before I go on to discuss how much I like this comic, »
