PitchEdit

Just before Ghostbusters: Infestation 2 was released on March 23, 2011, Erik Burnham was given the opportunity to pitch an ongoing series. The pitch included 16 issue's worth of Burnham's vision for the series.[7]

Eugene Visitor, Death being captured, and the Ghost Smashers were part of the pitch. The Ghost Smashers arc was originally going to be the third arc but Haunted America was done instead.[8]

AnnouncementEdit

On March 30, 2011, an advertisement with art by Dan Schoening hinted at a new monthly comic book series starting in September 2011. The advertisement is an homage to the Ghostbusters' first commercial from Ghostbusters.[9]

On April 12, 2011, an advertisement revealed a monthly comic book series, its staff involved, and reiterated the start date in September 2011.[10][11]

On April 21, 2011, a teaser was released that previewed Cover A of Issue One.[12]

On September 7, 2012, an advertisement was released that teased the next arc slated to start later in the month. The image is a logo with a cartoon ghost in crosshairs. The 'Busters' in 'Ghostbusters' is crossed out.[13]

On October 16, 2012, an advertisement for February 2013 titled "The New Ghostbusters" was released. It stated the Ghostbusters were missing and promised an exciting new line-up. In the ad, behind Janine, are photographs of various characters that have appeared so far in the ongoing series.[14]

On November 9, 2012, more teaser images for "The New Ghostbusters" were released which revealed the line-up of replacements - Ron Alexander, Janine Melnitz, Kylie Griffin, and Agent Ortiz.[15][16]

On October 22, 2013, Tom Waltz posted a new teaser for 2014 titled "Mass Hysteria!" with arrow symbols prevalent in the image. [17]

On November 12, 2013, Tom Waltz posted a second teaser for "Mass Hysteria!", slated to begin in February 2014, depicting the Ghostbusters, Chicago Ghostbusters, and former Ghost Smashers battling a giant creature. [18] Ryan Lee later confirmed that was the cover he did for Volume 2 Issue #13. [19]

On January 28, 2014, IDW posted a third teaser for "Mass Hysteria!" depicting a reunion between Louis Tully and Dana Barrett with their shadows being those of Vinz Clortho and Zuul's respectively. [20]

ContinuityEdit

Tom Waltz confirms this continuity and the series will also be in continuity to previous IDW issues. The series will take place after the events of Infestation.[21]

The continuity is also based on the two movies, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, and Ghostbusters: The Video Game.[22][23]

On October 2, 2011, Erik Burnham clarified the continuity at work for the series.[24]

  • The first two movies are definitely canon.
  • Burnham cherry-picked from Ghostbusters: The Video Game and fans should "Assume that the events from the game happened... unless you see me contradict them."

On October 30, 2011, Tristan Jones stated the series takes place roughly in 1994 but in general, a fictional mid-1990s. On March 2, 2012, Erik Burnham tweeted it is generally a "vague present" but "if it had to be tied to a specific year it'd be 1994-ish." [25][26]

On October 30, 2011, Tristan Jones hinted a character appearing in Issue #5 will help give solid verification that the ongoing comic is not in continuity with The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters.[27] This character turned out to be Kylie Griffin.

After Volume 2 Issue #20, the continuity will continue into a 4 issue mini-series crossover with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles starting in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1.

RestrictionsEdit

Dana Barrett and Louis Tully were off-limits from being used in the comic.[28]

Relatives can't be invented and brought into the comic.[29] Peter's mother was in one of Erik Burnham's pitches. [30]

On November 16, 2013, it was revealed Louis Tully was no longer off-limits from being used and would be appearing the Mass Hysteria! arc. [31] The 30th anniversary was a selling point in getting Louis used during Mass Hysteria! in credit to Tom Waltz and Cindy at Sony. [32] Conditions came with using Louis Tully, there couldn't be a giant character change; like having three kids and being the governor of South Carolina. [33]

Trade CollectionsEdit

On December 11, 2011, Erik Burnham elaborated that each trade collection will collect four issues. If sales does well, IDW is more likely to approve a longer storyline (and consequently longer trades).[34]

On January 4, 2012, Tristan Jones announced his PCOC material will be included in the trade collections.[35]

On April 18, 2012, Tom Waltz revealed the eight page short story pitched by Dan Schoening was moved from Volume Two to Volume Three.[36]

On August 17, 2012, as mused by Erik Burnham, it seems likely the eight page story will be shifted to Volume Four with the solicitation information for Volume Three released.[37]

DevelopmentEdit

Production ProcessEdit

From start to finish, when Erik Burnham starts writing the script to when Tom Waltz is finished and sends the comic to the printers, an issue takes about 5–6 weeks to be completed.[38] At times, they can be working as far in advance as two months/issues ahead.[39] Burnham spends a week or less to write the script.[40] Dan Schoening and Luis Delgado spend about 3.5 weeks on art.[41]

Script UpdatesEdit

On July 5, 2011, Erik Burnham offered a status update on scripts: Issue #1 is done, #2 is done, approved, and being drawn, #3 is waiting on revision notes, and #4 is being generated.[42]

On November 21, 2011, Erik Burnham tweeted his daily work: "I have 5 pages to write, the next Ghostbusters arc plot to work on, some rewrites, and a short 200 word piece" and later [43]

On November 22, 2011, Erik Burnham replied the scripts up to Issue #6 are completely done.[44]

On June 14, 2012, Erik Burnham provided a script update. The story for Issues #13-15 is "pretty well set" and he is currently "mulling" #16.[45]

On June 16, 2012, Erik Burnham posted a peek at some Ghostbusters plotting.[46]

After The OngoingEdit

On August 2, 2014, Erik Burnham revealed the reason for the end of ongoing isn't sales related citing conversations at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Burnham also commented he and Dan Schoening will stick around and a Volume 3 might happen but it isn't set in stone yet. [47]

On August 5, 2014, in an interview, Tom Waltz hinted the events of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters mini-series will matter and will rear their heads in future stories of both franchises. [48]

On August 13, 2014, Tristan Jones revealed there is a vague chance that he might be writing and drawing a six (or so) issue miniseries in 2015. [49]

On November 11, 2014, Tom Waltz confirmed the recent news of Paul Feig rebooting Ghostbusters had nothing to do with the end of the ongoing series nor was it cancelled by Sony. Stopping the ongoing series was a decision made by IDW based on dwindling sales and timing. In terms of timing, Issue #20 was deemed a logical point to stop with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ghostbusters crossover taking place soon after. The crossover is also aimed to bring more attention to Ghostbusters comics. Waltz further stated other things are in the works and his ultimate goal is a Volume 3 of the ongoing series. [50]

Approved PitchesEdit

On August 26, 2011, Erik Burnham tweeted he submitted a three page back up story, also exclusive to the comic only.[51]

On December 7, 2011, Erik Burnham revealed his three page back up was approved and he will also draw it. It involves outtakes from "World of the Psychic," featured in Ghostbusters II. They will be one panel gags that show why Peter Venkman eventually quit the show.[52]

On March 7, 2013, Erik Burnham, in a Crossing the Streams roundtable recorded in February, revealed he wrote an eight page Scoleri Brothers story but Dan Schoening simply hasn't had any time to draw it. The story was meant to be for the Volume 2 trade paperback.[53]

On March 24, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the "World of the Psychic" is actually a single four page back up story set up as a clip show gag. For now, the story is on hold.[54]

On May 28, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the staff is still talking about doing the Scoleri Brothers story, but doing so would require chopping the original story in two and possibly making it infeasible. They are exploring all options. [55]

On May 31, 2013, during an interview with Cross the Streams, Dan Schoening hinted the Scoleri Brothers story answers questions and fills in holes from Ghostbusters II. [56]

On February 26, 2014, Erik Burnham revealed the Scoleri Brothers story was about where Winston was. [57]

Not Approved PitchesEdit

On April 11, 2013, Jones revealed he pitched a Ghostbusters annual featuring a John Tobin story that would be the thrust of the issue just like "The Man Who Sought Death" in Ghostbusters #8 and Dan Schoening, Luis Delgado, and Erik Burnham would tell a contemporary story alongside it, but the pitch was not greenlit. [58]

On August 14, 2014, Jones revealed the pitched annual would have expanded on Tobin's encounter with the Grundel, seen briefly in Volume 1 Issue #8. He also revealed a new pitch that involves trees, witchcraft, cults, and a life at stake. [59]

Story IdeasEdit

On April 6, 2012, Erik Burnham revealed he had a story planned that dealt with Egon and Janine but the Haunted America arc developed. This story may appear at the end of the year.[60]

On June 29, 2012, Erik Burnham hinted he, Tristan Jones, Luis Delgado, and Dan Schoening would appear in a story soon. Burnham and Delgado will talk to Winston.[61]

On September 16, 2012, in an interview with Guys With Pencils, Dan Schoening hinted he's still waiting for a chance to draw in the H2 Ghost.[62]

On November 12, 2012, Erik Burnham said "maybe in a backup, one day" there could be a story through the point of view of PCOC.[63]

On April 1, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed he was thinking about using a djinn for an upcoming arc.[64]

On August 21, 2013, Erik Burnham said there will probably be more Extreme Ghostbusters characters in the future. [65]

On November 18, 2013, Erik Burnham said if the series makes it to 2015 he would use a version of the Sandman. [66]

On January 8, 2014, Erik Burnham revealed he was thinking "moving the spotlight right back onto the original four for an arc at least" after the Mass Hysteria! arc completes in fall 2014. [67]

On January 27, 2014, Erik Evensen hinted he and Erik Burnham have ideas for more stories. [68]

On January 29, 2014, Erik Burnham implied the Bogeyman will be back. [69]

On January 30, 2014, Erik Burnham also hinted he and Erik Evensen would be working together again when their schedules line up. [70]

TMNT/GhostbustersEdit

On June 23, 2014, Tristan Jones summarized a Supanova Expo panel on Sunday where Chris Ryall hinted there will be some "pretty big news" regarding the Ghostbusters comics will be released at San Diego Comic Con 2014 next month. [71]

On July 15, 2014, IDW Publishing issued a press release revealing the new mini series in conjunction with both franchises' 30th anniversaries. [72] IDW's October checklist revealed there will be a variant cover by Kevin Eastman. [73]

On July 16, 2014, Bobby Curnow confirmed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters mini-series is in canon, effectively continuing the current continuity from the ongoing series. [74]

On July 18, 2014, Erik Burnham reaffirmed this story is a continuation of the ongoing series' canon. [75]

On July 25, 2014, in an interview, Erik Burnham revealed Donatello has access to Fugitoid's inter-dimensional transporter plans and tries to build one for himself. He does and it works. It sends the Turtles to the right location in New York, but the wrong New York entirely. The four Turtles, Casey, April, the Ghostbusters, Janine Melnitz and Kylie Griffin will appear. There will be a cameo here and there. Tom Waltz has a plan for the "TMNT" series so he and Burnham mined the idea for the villain from that continuity. The villain is connected to another Turtles character and is trapped in a dimensional portal; when he's set free (in the Ghostbusters universe) and he has some decidedly ghost-like abilities. [76]

On August 5, 2014, in an interview, Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham provided some hints of what to expect in the mini-series: the Ghostbusters and TMNT will be put through the wringer, "a brand new villain from the TMNT’s ancient past," "classic super-team meet-up confusion," "some very geeky science talk" between Egon and Donatello, and a scene where Michelangelo sees Slimer for the first time. [77]

On August 15, 2014, in an interview, Erik Burnham expanded on working directly with Tom Waltz on the scripts. They got the plot hammered out, got input from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles editor Bobby Curnow, Burnham did the first draft, Waltz did a pass, and lastly Burnham makes any tweaks not related specifically Waltz and Curnow's threads for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ongoing series. Burnham cites he and Waltz came up with the idea of this crossover at San Diego Comic Con 2012 but were thinking about it in general for years. [78]

On August 27, 2014, Dan Schoening revealed he tweaked the designs of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so that Raphael is the bulkiest, Michelangelo is smaller than the rest, and Donatello has a bigger cranium than the others. [79]

On September 6, 2014, Dan Schoening posted his design for Donatello, his favorite Ninja Turtle. [80]

On September 7, 2014, Dan Schoening posted his design for Michelangelo. [81]

On September 10, 2014, Dan Schoening posted first designs for Casey Jones but noted this won't be the final version seen in the mini-series. [82]

On September 12, 2014, Dan Schoening posted a design for Splinter. [83]

On November 1, 2014, Erik Burnham stated the crossover series takes place a few months after the events of the "Mass Hysteria!" arc. [84]

On November 18, 2014, Erik Burnham revealed he started the miniseries thinking Egon and Donatello would drive the story. [85]

Volume TwoEdit

General NewsEdit

On October 30, 2011, Tristan Jones hinted a character, Kylie Griffin, appearing Issue #5 will appear again in the year one slate of comics. Given there is a year two and three, there will be future appearances of this character. There will be an Extreme Ghostbusters-esque situation, but more like the Rookie from The Video Game. Basically, there could be extra people around to help like Janine throwing on a jumpsuit in the Real Ghostbusters.[86]

On September 5, 2012, Erik Burnham tweeted "Plotting Ghostbusters future." [87]

On September 6, 2012, in an interview with Behind the Pages, Erik Burnham revealed another upcoming story he is plotting currently is not in the original 16 issue pitch.[88]

On October 3, 2012, Erik Burnham hinted the appearance of the Rookie was initially an attempt to seed one thing, but a new storyline in 2013 has changed that. [89]

On October 14, 2012, Erik Burnham teased that as part of some research for one of two stories starting off the series' run in 2013, he might have looked up The Real Ghostbusters. [90]

On November 13, 2012, Erik Burnham announced his current goal is to have the second volume surpass the first and make it at least to Issue #20. [91]

On February 20, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed he plans to continue using the New Ghostbusters team as a support unit after Volume 2's first story arc. [92]

On April 24, 2013, Erik Burnham announced he's having fun researching ghosts for the next arc. He considered a Scandinavian and South American ones but nixed it for various reasons. Burnham is also looking up African lore and Voodoo. [93] [94]

On June 22, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the Chicago faction of Ghostbusters "will be popping up here and there." [95]

On October 9, 2013, Erik Burnham teased there will be more Rookie and Ron stories. [96]

On November 7, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed another issue had been approved. [97]

Issues #1-4Edit

On August 28, 2012, Erik Burnham revealed he may do a Ghostbusters "replacements" team story one day but for now it was only in the stack of possibilities.[98]

On November 10, 2012, Erik Burnham confirmed "The New Ghostbusters" is the first story arc of 2013.[99]

On November 12, 2012, Erik Burnham confirmed Jack Hardemeyer will appear in the comic soon as a member of PCOC. Ron Alexander will play as more of a jerk than Walter Peck but a techie like Egon. Kylie will be sort of a blend of Ray and Egon. Pagan was not originally planned to appear but will now make occasional cameos in panels. One of the ghosts will be based on mythology and another sort of based on one from The Real Ghostbusters. Janine is on the team because of Peck. Peck will explain "to a surly deputy mayor why Janine is completely indispensable." [100][101]

On November 14, 2012, IDW issued a press release that revealed the arc involves the Ghostbusters are kidnapped by demons from another dimension, leading to a new group to don the Proton Packs to deal with New York's supernatural problems and rescue their predecessors.[102] Burnham further hinted the story is split between new team and original team but with more focus on the new.[103]

On November 15, 2012, Erik Burnham clarified the New Ghostbusters would be wearing full jumpsuits in Issue #1, the shorts in #2, and jumpsuits in #3. The shorts is part of a gag about working in retail.[104]

On December 18, 2012, Erik Burnham hinted Idulnas is not working on behalf of Gozer and is trying to get revenge on his own behalf. He may or may not be as powerful enough to act directly anymore. Burnham also confirmed not to expect to see the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man or Gozer or anything else from the Gozerian pantheon. Dan Schoening "requested a riff on something" as the next threat.[105]

On January 4, 2013, Erik Burnham hinted he is considering using the core of the last story from his original pitch for volume two.[106]

On January 18, 2013, in an interview Erik Burnham revealed once the Ghostbusters return home there will be a "host of personal complications for the guys to deal with going forward." Melanie Ortiz is very Winston-like; she's from law enforcement and is the most on-point of the group. Janine is as unflappable as Venkman, will be compassionate, worries about the people she cares for, and, she's a rock. Kylie is the go-to for supernatural information and a mix of both Egon and Ray studying and recalling so much of the oddities of the world. Ron Alexanderwill be a mix of the technical sides of Egon and Ray—very clever with mechanical things, but he is still a jerk so he will be more of a love-to-hate character than Walter Peck ever was. The big difference from the original group will be they don't have the same humorous shorthand and charisma as the originals.[107]

On January 21, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the Ghostbusters will return to New York before the end of the arc.[108]

On February 3, 2013, Erik Burnham hinted Volume Two will start off "jumping ahead in time" from the end of Issue #16.[109]

On February 12, 2013, in an interview, Erik Burnham hinted the characters who make up this replacement team will not all be leaving the book when the originals return to New York, set up the potential for a villain, and has planted the seeds for the originals to make more problems for themselves because of the solutions they choose — like that time Ray decided on the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man as the form of ultimate destruction.[110] In another interview, Burnham noted the task of protecting New York City is more forced on the replacements without much of a choice in the matter.[111]

On March 1, 2013, Erik Burnham teased Issue #3 and #4 each will have a panel "that is going to drop some jaws." [112]

On March 7, 2013, Erik Burnham, in a Crossing the Streams roundtable recorded in February, revealed the New Ghostbusters concept was conceived around September 2012.[113]

On March 8, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed when he was first writing Melanie Ortiz and Ron Alexander in Volume One, he had the intention of bringing them back but hadn't conceived the New Ghostbusters arc yet. At the time, Ron was going to think of another scheme and Melanie would be brought back just for fun since she had good chemistry with Peter. Jenny Moran was initially going to be the fourth New Ghostbusters but someone with tech experience was needed so she was cut.[114]

Issues #1-4 Back UpEdit

On September 30, 2012, Erik Burnham hinted there are talks about a back up story that would start in February 2013.[115]

On November 13, 2012, Erik Burnham revealed the first arc of Volume Two ("The New Ghostbusters") will also have new backup feature taking the place of the PCOC files. The first 8 page story will be serialized in 2 pages per issue in the first arc. The story has been requested by fans and editors for a while now, with the Ghostbusters being indirect in this backup and "something from a ghost's POV" [116][117]

On November 14, 2012, IDW Publishing issued a press release that revealed the back up is an all-new Real Ghostbusters story written and drawn by Erik Burnham.[118] Burnham confirmed Slimer, Egon from The Real Ghostbusters, and "the whole nine" will appear. It will be "a fun little romp" following a ghost after it is stored in the Containment Unit.[119]

On November 16, 2012, Erik Burnham, in an interview, revealed the Real Ghostbusters story would also have the captured ghost "meet some familiar faces" in the Containment Unit.[120]

On January 4, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed Tristan Jones was offered the Real Ghostbusters back up first.[121]

On January 22, 2013, Erik Burnham posted an uncolored preview of Granny Gross from his Real Ghostbusters story.[122]

On March 24, 2013, Erik Burnham announced he just got some new pages in from Luis Delgado.[123]

Issues #5-8Edit

On March 1, 2013, Erik Burnham also teased he and Dan Schoening have "crazy plans" for #5-8.[124]

On March 8, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed Kylie Griffin and Janine Melnitz would definitely appear in #5-8 Ghostbusting in a way.[125]

On March 13, 2013, Erik Burnham hinted #5-8 will involve Janine facing consequences from The New Ghostbusters Part 3, Kylie will, in no uncertain circumstances, be out 'Busting, Melanie will have gone back to New Mexico, but the FBI just won't be the same for her, and Ron was almost killed off but something else was decided with him. The arc will also feature Ghost Ships, the return of other characters, and drama for Winston.[126] Burnham later revealed an Egon-Janine-Roger story is in the works that takes place during the #5-8 arc.[127]

On March 29, 2013, in an interview posted, Erik Burnham revealed more on the arc. It will feature Egon trying to keep a ghost from abducting Janine's soul and Kylie will be hunting a ghost ship with Peter and Ray, amongst other things.[128]

On April 1, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed he is using the Gris-Gris from Volume 1, Issue #10 and initially the Janine and Ghost Ship plots were going to go back and forth between #5-8, but Tom Waltz and Burnham talked and it was decided to separate them into two two issue stories.[129]

On April 28, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed he initially planned to go back forth with the Egon-Jaine story, the Ghost Ship story, and other bits but Dan Schoening needed a break. The arc was then split into two arcs with Issues #5-6 and #7-8. To make it work out, Burnham had to "invent some new things to spackle beats together." The arcs will be two (mostly) separate stories. [130] [131]

On May 15, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed Evan Shaner will be the main artist for Issues #7 and 8. Dan Schoening will do the back ups for those two issues then return as main artist with Issue #9 in October. [132] [133] [134]

On May 28, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the title for the second arc is titled "Trains, Brains, and Ghostly Remains" as a gag on "Trains Planes & Automobiles." 'Trains' refers to the Ghost Train in Issue #5, 'Brains' refers to being in the mind of Janine Melnitz in Issue #6, and 'Ghostly Remains' refers to the Ghost Ship. [135]

On July 9, 2013, Evan Shaner posted snippets of his model sheets for the Ghostbusters and one of Egon. [136] [137]

On July 10, 2013, Evan Shaner posted his model sheet for Peter. [138]

On July 11, 2013, Evan Shander posted his model sheet for Ray. [139]

On July 8, 2013, Dan Schoening announced he was finished penciling both 2 page back up stories for Issues #7 and 8. [146]

On July 27, 2013, Dan Schoening hinted the back up "features the very best of the Rookie, and the very worst of Ron." [147]

On July 29, 2013, it was revealed Matt Prov of Cross the Streams will be used in an unspecified role in the back up stories. [148]

On August 30, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed a Bogeyman (not the one from The Real Ghostbusters) will be appearing first in the Issues #7-8 back ups. [149]

Issues #9-12Edit

On March 8, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed he has a tentative plan for #9-12. It is a very, weird story that may or may not work and it requires getting permissions.[150]

On May 8, 2013, Erik Burnham tweeted he had one brief conversation with an editor and his plan for Issues #9-12 changed. [151]

On May 27, 2013, Erik Burnham revealed the working title for the #9-12 arc is "Haunted Holidays 2" [152]

On May 28, 2013, Erik Burnham hinted the staff is looking at different holidays than the ones previously featured in the first Haunted Holidays collection of one-shots but doesn't rule out using the same holidays again. [153] Burnham hinted New Year's and something like Halloween may be used for the arc. [154]

On October 17, 2013, One of Dan Schoening's sketches for Issues #10-11 was revealed and it appeared to be his rendition of Eduardo Rivera. [155]

Once he learned of the "City Fall" arc in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Burnham got the idea to do an 8 part Ghostbusters story. The arc will "bring in characters we haven't seen in the book before, a few nods to the past, every character who has worn a proton pack during our run, and to top it all off, a major change to the life of one of the boys" and has "an enemy that won’t be beaten by concentrating crossed proton streams in a single location" so "everyone who has ever worn a proton pack into the story to help."

It was planned for that the ghost would possess the dog, enabling it to talk for a bit.

In the comments, Jones teases "P.C.O.C. was shut down after the Video Game, but then reinstated for VERY good reason, too..." [280] Jones' take on Peck is "he's not someone to mess with anymore. He knows that what the Ghostbusters do is legitimate and needs to be done, and after being possessed and used in The Video Game, he kinda wants to see to it that I doesn't happen again and that the world isn't brought to the brink if destruction through some petty oversight. Hopefully it comes across..." [281] He also has seen only seen two scripts and an overall story.[282]
