An all-new ghostbusting adventure arrives March 2024 in the form of a new series from Dark Horse Comics: Ghostbusters: Back in Town! This new four-issue series bridges the gap between Ghostbusters: Afterlife and its upcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.  A year and a half after the events of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the Ghostbusters are officially back in business and headed to where it all began: New York City! Callie, Gary, Trevor, and Phoebe are moving into the Firehouse and ready to take on the Spengler family business…or are they? Ghostbusting on top of changing family dynamics has a way of going awry––and that’s exactly what one paranormal force is counting on.

Featuring writing by David Booher (Canto, Killer Queens), art by Blue Delliquanti (Adversary, Across a Field of Starlight), colors by Mildred Louis (Rick and Morty) and Cris Peter (Critical Role: The Tales of Exandria), and letters by Jimmy Betancourt of Comicraft, Ghostbusters: Back in Town continues the cultural phenomenon. The first issue’s cover will be illustrated by Kyle Lambert, with a variant cover by Steve Morris.

On the new series, Jason Reitman said, “Our friends at Dark Horse have picked up the Spengler family and hand delivered them to Manhattan where they will begin their journey back into Ghostbusting! It has been a personal thrill to collaborate with this incredible group of artists and storytellers on new chapters in the proton jungle.”

Ghostbusters: Back in Town #1 (of 4), scares its way into comic shops on March 27, 2024. It is now available to pre-order for $3.99 at your local comic shop.
