Ghostbusters: Legion is a four-issue comic book mini-series published by the Quebec based publisher, 88MPH Studios run by Canadian Sebastien Clavet. It was written by Andrew Dabb, with pencils by Steve Kurth and inks by Serge LaPointe.

A proposed follow up series from the same comic publisher was announced but has since been cancelled.

Synopsis Edit

Set six months on from the Gozer incident the series was designed to follow the Ghostbusters as their initial fame faded and they returned to the regular chore of busting ghosts on a daily basis.
