ghostbusters back in town

There are a couple of new Ghostbusters adventures debuting this month with the March release of the movie Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire and a comic book series Ghostbusters: Back in Town from Dark Horse Comics. In the movie that premiered this weekend at theaters, Winston Zeddemore, one of the original Ghostbusters team, bankrolls Spengler's daughter Callie and her two children Trevor (and Phoebe to reinitiate the Ghostbusters business in New York City. They bring along with them the kids former science teacher and Callie's now husband, Gary Grooberson (Paul Rudd), as part of the Spengler family making up the new Ghostbusters team. There is a two year time jump though between the events in Frozen Empire and what transpired during the last film, Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

What did we miss during that timespan? Well a new four-issue comic book series from Dark Horse Comics is going to provide some of those missing details. An all-new ghostbusting adventure arrives on March 27th with the release of the first issue of Ghostbusters: Back in Town. This limited series bridges the gap between the Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire movies. 

A year and a half after the events of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the Ghostbusters are officially back in business and headed to where it all began: New York City! Callie, Gary, Trevor, and Phoebe are moving into the Firehouse and ready to take on the Spengler family business…or are they? Ghostbusting on top of changing family dynamics has a way of going awry––and that's exactly what one paranormal force is counting on.

Featuring writing by David Booher (Canto, Killer Queens), art by Blue Delliquanti (Adversary, Across a Field of Starlight), colors by Mildred Louis (Rick and Morty), and letters by Jimmy Betancourt of Comicraft, Ghostbusters: Back in Town expands upon the movie experience. The first issue's cover will be illustrated by Kyle Lambert, with a variant cover by Steve Morris.


Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire
producer, Jason Reitman, commented to, "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."
