The bad news: This makes it official: IDW no longer has the Ghostbusters license.

Announced at EctoFest, as seen on GBFans

"We've got a unique story that we want to tell exclusively in a limited edition series that should be out sometime at the end of next year. And, like all of our plans, it's in-canon and part of the growing Ghostbusters story that began way back in 1984."

-Gil Kenan


Interestingly, the artwork behind Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan is from the Now Comics run's best arc, "The Father Thing Trilogy". Which probably doesn't have anything to do with it.

Dark Horse Comic is working with Reitman and Kenan on a Ghostbusters comic book series that will help bridge the gap between Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the upcoming sequel.

I know some people are gonna jump on my ass for this, but I don't think IDW not having the GB license is such a bad thing. I'm not sure about the whole comics industry as a whole but I don't really think IDW is on solid ground ATM. Ghostbusters was never going to bring in huge mega numbers, and I always felt there was a risk it was going to be pulled from IDW's content at any time.

With a bigger publisher, there's more chance that Ghostbusters will continue and although this is going to be a limited edition run, I've always felt Ghostbusters would have a better home with a company that could absorb a comic pulling in lower numbers. It would give the creative team more flexibility with their storylines, and allow them the chance to do their own thing without having to piggyback on other properties in order to continue its run.

Yes it's sad that we won't have the great creative team that we had on IDW (and I'm really pissed that we won't have any conclusions to many of the plot points from IDW's run) but I can't help but feel that this type of publisher is probably the place Ghostbusters should have started out on in the first place.

Unless Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening are on IDW staff or have exclusive contracts, they could, theoretically at least, be hired for freelance work by Dark Horse.

I'm not expecting that, mind you, but it isn't impossible.
