A Blues Brothers tie-in?!?! Sooo happy I pre-ordered this! I just read this preview twice and it's awesome! Spot-on characterization; I can hear the actors' voices giving the dialogue. Terrific script and art so far. Kudos to the creators!

Great stuff, weird I could only view it on Chrome and not Firefox though. Dig the continuation of RGB references.

Ah sweet, Buster, Shanna, and Dib Devlin! And all the tie-ins to both movies.

The Third (Coming)? Interesting first arc.

Only nitpick is I thought Winston was a "Dr." as referenced in the museum level in Ghostbusters: The Video Game.

I kept all from the movies, but cherry-picked from the game's story. The big beats will stay the same, but I'm going to be shuffling around or out some of the smaller ones.

was it a difficult task to bring the ghostbusters back into the comic world and making stories that have the same kind of admospere that the first movie had?

from what i have seen until now makes me really enthusiastic ;)

keep up the great work,

best regards,

That's cool. As long as it keeps the fans on their toes. ;)

... Or at least arguing in the GBFans chatroom until 3 A.M. about what's cannon and what's not. Gotta love those hardcore fanboys...

I jest, of course. It's a minor point, for sure, so I'm sure most won't mind. I couldn't help but chuckle a bit and go "Awww..." at the "apply himself" line. Poor Winston...

(Plus, it was a dream, so yeah...)

I haven't observed such a conversation in a chatroom but in terms of Canon, I took the logical route and came up with 4 different variations of GB canon.

If I remember right, I think that "apply himself" line is referencing the Supernatural Spectacular, the movie adaptation where it explores a little bit of Winston prior to him going to the Firehouse to apply. He just came back from military duty and was sort of loafing around then eventually his mother, I think, told him a similar line.

Don't worry. Give Winston a few pages. He's applying himself, all right... (;

sometimes it's the little hat-tips, the subtle nods and the winks that really express care and craft on the page.

The preview looked good up until that point; the hat-tip to Belushi cemented it on my order.

Knew it'd be a fun nod, but it's really blown up.
