Ghostbusters 2 is the second issue in an ongoing Ghostbusters comic book series by IDW Publishing.
Is Mr. Stay Puft finally reforming after the battle with his doppelganger during the Infestation? Is that what's causing the huge PKE uptick in New York? As Winston and Peter take care of the annoying--and familiar--spook haunting the Crendall household, Ray receives a visitor at the firehouse... and this visitor could be what his prophetic dream was trying to warn him about.
