Ghostbusters Geistbusters by Zach

Things have slowed down on this blog a bit, but we keep picking new characters to draw, and the next characters chosen were the Ghostbusters, so I figured what the Hell. I wanted to show them busting somebody, and thought it would be fun to put a famous ghost in the trap, rather than some generic ghoulie. I suppose I could have put Deadman in there, or Starscream, but I just couldn't resist the pun potential in choosing Poltergeist from Justin Aclin's comic Hero House.

Again, this is one where I gave up 75% of the way through because I thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew, but ended up going back in after getting inspired (this time by Alex K.'s animation on the new Marvel What The....?! and Sean T. Collins' new comic). I even got fancy with my computer coloring, throwing a Mike Dimayuga panel into the picture frame and using some glowy filters on Egon's stream and the ghost trap. We lose Egon and Ray's ankles, but we're all better off, to be honest. As much as I love coloring, I may try to do an actually good black-and-white sketch next time, rather than going for the finished look. 
Check out a 50-page preview of Hero House here, then order it from Amazon. Then order MY book, Pop Sculpture, from Barnes & Noble!

Nice Zach! In this scene I want to believe the Ghostbusters reinstated that 1-800-number from the movies and hastily busted Geist for to score some extra cash. BOOM! Justin, there's the plot for your unofficial crossover.
