IDW Announces "Ghostbusters Holiday Special" Comic

Official Press Release

Leave it to the Ghostbusters to take a classic holiday story and turn it on its head. In Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Past, Present, and Future, everyone's favorite spirit hunters are hired by the grumpiest man in New York City to capture three ghosts that haunt him every Christmas Eve. Written by Rob Williams, with art by Diego Jourdan, Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Past, Present, and Future will top every fan's holiday must-have list.

"Working on this book has been a lot of fun," said IDW Editor Tom Waltz. "Rob has taken a well-traveled and oft-revamped tale and given it an all-new twist, while maintaining all the classic elements Dickens - and, of course, Ghostbusters - traditionalists would demand and expect from this cast of characters. Only true Scrooges will walk away from this story without smiles on their faces."

A spoof on Charles Dicken's well known Christmas tale, Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Past, Present, and Future will hit store shelves in December, featuring covers by Jourdan and Nick Runge, as well as a special Runge retailer incentive cover. Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Past, Present, and Future is the first of a series of Ghostbusters holiday one-shots planned by IDW.

Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Past, Present and Future will be available in stores on December 9, 2009. Diamond order code #OCT09 0973.
