Ghostbusters 2-3 is the third issue in the second volume of the ongoing Ghostbusters comic book series by IDW Publishing.

PlotEdit

New York loves the New Ghostbusters—so much so that PCOC's liaison Jack Hardemeyer would like them to downplay efforts in finding their predecessors in order to devote more time to their loving public. Janine would happily tell him where to shove a neutrona wand if she and the others didn't have to contend with the restless spirit of a mythological monster! Meanwhile, in limbo—Egon and Ray think they've come up with a way to escape their ethereal prison! [2]
