Archive for the ‘Ghostbusters’ Category

Over on my personal blog, I’ve posted my original pitch from a couple of years ago for Ghostbusters: Tainted Love, along with some of the behind-the-scenes notes that detail the process of going from pitch to final book. You can check it all out here.

Newsarama just posted a preview of my Ghostbusters one-shot for Valentine’s Day. Not the highest quality scans os Salgood Sam’s artwork, but you get the idea. Also, here’s a look at the couple of different variant covers, by artist Nick Runge:

(*sigh* yes, I know, I know…I’m not a fan of variant covers either. But unfortunately I don’t make the business decisions…)

By the way, the book was supposed to have shipped to stores last week, to coincide with Valentine’s Day, but it got held up in customs. It’s officially hitting stores this week (17th), except for most of the East coast. Here’s where the story takes a tragic twist: the truck from Diamond Distributors that had all of IDW’s books on it for the East coast stores was involved in a very bad weather-related accident. My understanding is that the driver(s) are in critical condition in the hospital. Needless to say, it’s a very unfortunate event and I hope that everyone involved pulls through and makes a full recovery.

The Other Paper features and interview with me this week, mostly about my Ghostbusters one-shot. If you’re in Columbus, you can pick up a free copy, or read it online here:

Ghostbuster takes time out for romance

Just thought I’d post a page from my Ghostbusters one-shot, coming your way Valentine’s Day 2010, from IDW:

What I love about the way the book turned out is that despite the licensed property nature of the book, it’s got such a cool indie vibe to it, all thanks to Salgood Sam’s artwork, Bernie Mireault’s coloring, and Salgood’s hand lettering.

IDW’s solicitations for February 2010 are out, which means I can officially announce my next project for them: a Ghostbusters Valentine’s Day one-shot!

Ghostbusters Holiday Special: Tainted Love

Dara Naraghi (w) • Salgood Sam (a) • Salgood Sam, Nick Runge (c)
Love is in the air—literally!—as Winston befriends an attractive woman with a ghostly problem in her apartment. But trapping the love-struck apparition proves to be more complicated than the Ghostbusters originally thought. Can Winston step up and save the day? Just how far will Peter go to find a date? And do Ray and Egon ever stop to think about girls, or is it always about trans-dimensional ectoplasmic anomolies with those two?

FC • one-shot • 32 pages • $3.99

Artist Salgood Sam is turning in some great pages on this book. Check out his cover:

I always thought that Winston got short shrifted in the movies, so I wrote a Winston-centric story. It’s got ghosts, a love interest, and plenty of humor. Hopefully it’ll appeal to die hard GB fans as well as casual readers.
