Ghostbusters II

 GHOI   (Now, 1989)

and 1984, 1989 Columbia Pictures Inc.

When a movie makes a major profit like Ghostbusters did in the early eighties, you can usually count on Hollywood to make a sequel. One more thing to count on is that when a movie has a science-fiction comedy edge to it as Ghostbusters had, there will be a comic book adaptation.

Both things came to pass when Now Comics adapted Ghostbusters II for comics in this three-issue, 1989 mini-series. The Ghostbusters must once again battle the supernatural forces that threaten New York City. This time, not only New York is in danger, but the life of a baby hangs in the balance. The series carries on the tradition of wacky comedy that the original movie possessed.

The need for renaming the title to the Real Ghostbusters came because an animated cartoon (Ghostbusters) managed to scoop up the name for its own gang of ghost-chasing heroes.
