Why is this not already a topic? So I have all but two of the Now comics, numbers 5 and 15, are missing. I love these comics, before Fox fam started reairing RGB all I had where my comics. I know that Fritz has them, does anyone else? I have the comics with Fritz's letters printed, I knew we woulod get along well even then One of my favs was the short stories issue with Egon and Janine's date at the circus, don't have them with me for number reference, sorry. I also loved the short story ith Ray and the mermaid, did anyone notice the 88mph cover with Ray? It has a mermaid on it, interesting no? It's even green.

#19. It ws from that issue that I found the term "Ectozone" and obviously sorta latched onto it. The little picture of Egon on the Ectozone home page is from that issue

Wow. I never made that connection. I mean, it's probably coincidence, but it makes you wonder, right?
#4. Definitely the most inspired cover of the series--Egon and Janine dressed like characters from a 20's gangster film. So popular an image, it was on the Now comics promotional poster enclosed with the Ghostbusters International boxed set.
#9-11 "The Father Thing Trilogy" A story with dark psychological overtomes that would've never made it on Saturday morning. Shannon Phillips discovers he's the son of a demonic being named Astorath--he eventually agrees to go with the demon to save the Earth, so the Ghostbusters go to the rescue. Also introduced a sorcerer named Mister Blaque, who could've been a great recurring villain (I'm brewing up a plan or two for him myself)
#16 GB2 was a depressing and frustrating experience for E/J fans. Thankfully, this issue (released when GB2 was barely out of the theatres) was effectively the official RGB veto of putting Janine together with Louis: Egon and Janine have an argument about it, she brushes Tully off as "sweet but harmless", and All Is Right With the World.
#17, #26 The returns, respectively, of Samhaine and the Boogeyman. No f***ing Junior Ghostbusters in sight.
#28 Oh, c'mon, it was published right after ABC aired "Janine You've Changed" It was Egon and Janine on a date--how could I not like that?
I love ALL of those also, I was just tired of typing. ;D For a long time issue 16 really confused me, I don't know why, but I finally made the conection and thought I was just reading too much into it.
Yes I love issue #4 in 20's garb "Noones here but you me and the skirt" classic. so bad for him. I was also impressed to see them walking through central park at Janine's request even though Egon thought it was a bad idea. Shows real commitment on his part I think ;D
The boy from the "Father Thing Trilogy" was in that story of Ectozone. I knew that connection BTW, with your board, even recognized the picture!
#28 of course my all time fav. That poor little boy, I felt
I love those comics, I wish I had them with me. ghostdiva
