Here we are again with another Ghostbusters filming location that seems near-impossible to identify, yet Matthew Jordan managed to identify it. Let's see what it is, shall we...

Ghostbusters PDF eBook Preservation Project - The Real Ghostbusters in Haunted House Mystery

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jul. 28, 2012 at 10:32 PM , Categories: Real Ghostbusters, Books
A nice vintage children's book has been preserved this time around. On The Real Ghostbusters Books page you can now find a PDF ebook of The Real Ghostbusters in Haunted House Mystery by Peter Mandel. This small 6x6 inch book was one of many of the same size published by the Antioch Publishing Company in the 1980s. Most of their children's books of this size were advertised as having "12 Collector Stickers Inside". Haunted House Mystery is no exception, though my copy lacked the stickers, so you won't find them in the eBook. What makes this book special is that, in spite of the generic name, it's actually an adaptation of an episode of the animated series: Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood. Don't expect for it to follow the episode plot 100% as it's only a 24 page book (including the title page), in which half of those pages are images, and the other half has large print text. The plot had to be shortened down considerably to fit the format. That said, it's still a good read and worthy of being preserved.

Spook Central Webmaster, Paul Rudoff, Appears In Ghostbusters Comic Book

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jul. 20, 2012 at 7:34 PM , Categories: Personal, Spook Central, Books
IDW's Ghostbusters #11 comic book, which comes out this Wednesday, July 25, 2012, features a scene in the Belda'r Cafe in Roswell, New Mexico with Peter Venkman and a female FBI agent. On page 19, there's a very special onlooker to the events...

Does that gentleman sitting at the counter look familiar? Well, I recognize that guy every time I look in the mirror! Yes, that guy watching Peter and the female FBI agent is ME! Paul Rudoff, the creator and webmaster of the Ghostbusters fansite Spook Central (where you are now), has his likeness in an official Ghostbusters publication. Not only that, but I'm wearing a "Spook Central" t-shirt - which are not available for sale, though maybe I should start selling some.

I'm absolutely touched that artist Dan Schoening would honor me like this. It truly makes me feel special to actually be part of the Ghostbusters universe, breathing the same air as Dr. Peter Venkman! And thanks, Dan, for also sending me the high-resolution scan of the unlettered panel for use on this site.

If you want to get a copy of this issue - and you can rest assured that I'm getting several copies - head down to your local comic shop this Wednesday or order a copy online at Graham Cracker Comics (Cover A, Cover B, Cover RI) and Ghostbusters Fans (Covers A & B only).

If you never picked up issue #9, I have that available for sale here on Spook Central. I also have a handful of Spook Central patches left, and then they'll be sold out completely. No Spook Central t-shirts :-(

This isn't the first time I appeared in a Ghostbusters comic book, though it is the first time I literally appeared. I had a Letter to the Editor appear in The Real Ghostbusters 3-D Slimer Special (July 1993), which was the very last Ghostbusters comic book ever published by NOW Comics. Soon, I'll "appear" again - well, Spook Central will - as Tristan Jones is going to be drawing a one-of-a-kind Ghostbusters #9 Spook Central/Long Island sketch cover for me. When he gets around to doing that, it'll appear on his Tumbler site with all of the other sketch covers he's done so far.

(Bonus thanks to Ghostbusters News for mentioning my comic appearance.)
