One of the greatest movies of all time was Ghostbusters. It was followed up with one of the greatest cartoons of all time, The Real Ghostbusters (one of the most successful Movie-to-TV translations EVER). The mix of comedy, horror, and weird science was white-hot in the Eighties, and still maintains a loyal fan following to this day!!!

The Ectozone's Eleventh Birthday. Not as big a milestone as the Tenth, of course, but it's today.

Some new stuff:

The Timeline section has undergone some updating. The most notable is the New Timeline, which has now been updated up to issue 12 of Ghostbusters Vol.2 with some citations of things up to the current issue; I'm not going to give the "full" treatment to #13-on until the "Mass Hysteria" storyline is finished.

Aforementioned "Mass Hysteria" has been a great anniversary story; Tiamat, a figure of real Sumerian and Babylonian mythology (not to mention a major role in the cosmology of the Dungeons and Dragons default scenario) is the villain. I mean, I gotta admit to rolling my eyes at the "sister of Gozer" thing; "A rival member of Gozer's pantheon" would have been more than sufficient, but it's the anniversary and I certainly can't say that IDW flogging Gozer is a totally new and unexpected development.

On the down side, they brought back Louis Tully. Ungh. Sorry, this was a character I was just simply not missing. I know, I know, "anniversary" blah blah blah.

But here's my own treat for you all:

Ghostbusters: Enlightenment, Part One
June 8, 1994--Timeline Year Twelve


Liz Hawthorne, the maga known as Lady Enlightenment, is in deep trouble. She turns to Ray Stantz and the Ghostbusters for help, unaware that things have changed drastically in the three years since she's seen them...

This is a story I've had floating, in one form or another, in my head for over twenty years, but never got around to telling really, well, anywhere. Readers familiar with Chronicles of Gozer Part Six and the various tales of the Ghostbusters of 2021 and on will be able to see where some of this is going, and it will eventually lead into GBOT Ray's romantic destiny being resolved, but I think you'll like some of the other surprises Ogre and I have in mind for this story.

I'm hoping that, at long last, I have enough of a creative tailwind on me to actually get this story done, too. (Fingers crossed)
