The Get Real TPB has shown up on Amazon for $17.99 preorder. Just the #1 regular cover for now. I'm sure Dan and Luis will bust out a new cover soon enough. The Amazon date is December 17 so the general release should be December 2 tentatively. Last year, the trade set for December (volume 9) came out on the 10th. So around the first half of the month is a safe bet when all is said and done.

Just read issue three today, it was a real blast seeing IDW Ray visit the Real Ghostbusters firehouse. Also I must say that the dialogue all around the issue is some of the funniest I have read in quite some time.

Apparently 3 pages from Issue #4 are previewed on iBooks.

One page is a particular minor spoiler because it looks like two characters are 'taken off the board' so to speak.

Figures Amazon would spoil it, but if you want to see what the front and back covers of the Get Real trade paperback is...
Here you go: Amazon page

Yes, it's a reference to a RGB product line and a long outdated form of watching things on TV. ;)

The attention to detail that IDW does with this line is spectacular!

Ah, This is so awesome. It's like being a kid again. I still have these VHS tapes. I love the detail on the Magic Window logo. Done up in a very unique way where it's the silhouettes of the 2 different teams doing their Parade March and instead of Magic Window they say Interdimensional Portal. They just make these dedications look so effortless. I don't what else I can say but, WOW!! :) :) :)

Now that the trade is out, is there different parallel universes from what was seen in the individual issues?

Yes in the scene where Proteus's dog is sniffing out dimensions, instead of seeing the Hulk Hogan Rockin Wrestler universe we see a universe of Robo Busters. Instead of seeing the Filmation Ghostbusters universe we see the 2 rookies from the Stylized Version of the Ghostbusters Video Game. :) :) :)

Will be interesting to see if a similar plot is used in the future to bring the original team together with the 2016 movie teamt.
I wouldn't bet money on it.
Kinda wish I had, just now! ;)

I have a belated question about this series, I guess mrmichaelt is probably the man to ask, but I'll open the floor to everyone! When Proteus first appears in Claudia's room, towards the start of issue 1, there is a little white featureless figure sitting on top of her doorframe. Anyone know what that refers to? It looks like one of the little robot dudes from Les Maitres Du Temps, but I can't think of a Ghostbusters connection!

I don't think it was mentioned in the Easter egg round up, so was just wondering!

Claudia's place is modeled after Dhalia's from "Moaning Stones", even the little figure you speak of. So it's origins probably have to with Voodoo.
