About a year later (ok 11 months) I'm making this thread new again after reading every post. Like the Kenner instructions post if you visit Ectocontainment you basically know why I'm writing.
I would have always preferred my copies which I scanned and cleaned up last year to have been posted as PDF files from the beginning. Although others probably had bigger GB preservation projects going on, it's possible something could have been worked out. I really did take on the RGB comics (pre-knowledge of IDW's omnibus) head on. I sorta became the gatekeeper (no GB reference/pun intended) of all that printed-to-digital material. I even basically said in one of my posts I didn't see us having the files to read, at least from me ike the original printed comics for our mobile devices.
Then this year when I was relaunching ectocontainment.com, the way it should have been more or less since the beginning I made it a point to begin getting the RGB comics made into PDF files as I continued building and expanding Ectocontainment.
Matthew Jordan, who has been part of the Ghostbusters digital preservation and runs the GB Wiki established and has been making issues into PDF files, scaling them down some (still high res) and enhancing them further if needed. Thanks to ghosthead Ghostbusters213 I know they're already being read on tablet sized mobile devices.
Enough blustering. NOW c o m i c s, Volume 1, Issues 1-11 are available in PDF form on Ectocontainment. Slimer! Issue 1 is also available as a PDF. Issue 12 is being worked on, with July 4 in the US it may not be ready or up until next week. It could be sooner.
The PDFs aren't something we're working on like mad scientists, been there. As our schedules allow, PDFs will be made and put on Ectocontainment. When a "new" issue is ready, I always blog about it (not as detailed in 2012) and promote it through Twitter/Facebook.
All the links to every issue are active in the NOW section at Ectocontainment. It can be found in the Media section. The Real Ghostbusters magazines can also be found there. If and when their is a new comic PDF available, it is linked to its Adobe PDF icon.
Happy (summer) reading!
