At Comic-Con earlier this year, Erik Burnham, writer of IDW's Ghostbusters comic and all-around nice guy, asked if I'd like to draw one of the back-up stories for November's Ghostbusters Annual. I'm not sure what he said after that, because I just started yelling at everyone within earshot that I could go home because con was made. And it was. Getting offered a chance to draw for Ghostbusters at Comic-Con is the sort of thing young Alex used to dream about. I felt like it was '94 again and I was waiting for my big break at the Image portfolio review by the giant Youngblood spaceship. Except back then I didn't get asked to draw anything, so it's not really like that. But Badrock was there, and Chapel, and sometimes Spawn. It was an amazing time to be alive.
Where was I? Oh, right. It's a short story, only one page, but I'm super excited. I'd show it here, but the last panel is major spoilery, so I'll hold off. (Speaking of Spawn, there's an Easter egg in there for my 90's comic brethren). It's out Thanksgiving week, and even if I wasn't a part of it, I'd say pick it up, because Ghostbusters is consistently one of the best reads in my monthly pull. It's always solid and always fun, and I'm very grateful to Erik and editor Tom Waltz and the whole team for letting me be a part of it! Here's Egon and Winston eating ice cream. (Rocket Pop and Ninja Turtle, naturally).
