Spooks Illustrated [1] is a magazine published by Charles Foster Hearse. [2] [3] He created a publishing empire based on his love of the supernatural. [4] [5]

HistoryEdit

In their childhood, Ray Stantz read Spooks Illustrated and Egon Spengler always wanted to be on the cover. [6] [7]

Hearse's grandson, Charles Foster Hearse III invited the Ghostbusters to compete for the magazine's annual Ghost Hunter of the Year award. [8] All four Ghostbusters wouldn't accept the award individually, thus they all appeared in the Ghost Hunter of the Year edition.

TriviaEdit

  • Spooks Illustrated is based on Sports Illustrated, as is Ghost Hunter of the Year is based on Sportsman of the Year.
  • On page six of Ghostbusters Issue #1, the Ghostbuster of the Year edition makes a non-canon cameo next to Ray's bed.
