Been looking for cover art of the new comic? Diamond's got your back.
Have you been wondering, since FOREVER! about the cover art for the new Ghostbusters comic from 88mph studios?

Help to save the Ecto-1A!!
Here's something that every ghosthead should do. We all know that the Ecto-1A was moved to Universal Studios in Florida a few months ago. Well since its been sitting out in the elements for so long, the old girl is in extremely sad shape. Please help in getting Universal to restore the Ecto-1A back to her original movie state, and to put her inside a building with other movie cars so tourists can enjoy her. That way she stays out of the elements, and tourists can stay cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
You can e-mail Universal at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Heck if we get lucky enough maybe Sony will follow suit and fix up the Ecto-1 for us aswell.
Special thanks to river_of_slime for the newstip.

Dan talks about Ghostbusters 3, once more.
Props to River of Slime for finding this:
DAN AYKROYD: 'THERE WILL NEVER BE A GHOSTBUSTERS 3'
Veteran movie comedian DAN AYKROYD has ruled out the possibility of a third GHOSTBUSTERS film - because co-star BILL MURRAY doesn't want to be involved.
Dan, 51, admits all the original team would like to make another installment but unless Bill changes his mind it won't happen.
He says, "Never. That will never happen. Unless Bill Murray agrees. Everyone else would love to do it, COLUMBIA, HAROLD RAMIS, myself, director IVAN REITMAN.
"It's a five-way rights situation and Bill is locking up his piece of the rights because he feels that was work that he just wants preserved and he doesn't want it diluted.
"And as an artist I can respect that."
