IDW Publishing has released a new preview image of its four issue “Ghostbusters” event beginning with Issue #9 this May. The publisher launched the ongoing series in September 2011 written by Erik Burnham with art by Dan Schoening. The teaser image depicts Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddmore in front of the United States filled in with the American flag with the city names of Seattle, Roswell, New Orleans and Detroit floating above haunted-looking buildings — teasing an exodus from the Ghostbusters’ home city.
“I’d like to get them out of the confines of the city every now and again,” Burnham told CBR News in 2011. “Not in the same globe-trotting sense as the cartoon, but at least they could head upstate — if not out to the creepier parts of New England. There’s a lot of possibility within driving distance! Also, thanks to the backup stories by Tristan Jones, I look forward to dealing some with P.C.O.C., the city’s paranormal oversight committee, headed by Walter Peck.”
Check out the teaser image below and stay tuned for more details on the “Ghostbusters” event coming this May.
