Ghostbusters 2-4 is the fourth issue in the second volume of the ongoing Ghostbusters comic book series by IDW Publishing.


They're BACK! The original boys in gray have escaped captivity, but their captors—the demonic entities know as the Collectors—aren't going to just let the Ghostbusters get away with a jailbreak! It'll take all the wits at the disposal of both teams to keep Ray, Peter, Winston and Egon in one piece and on this dimensional plane! [2]
