In addition, from past experience, the release dates change 2 to 3 times for each issue. So check back a few times.

EDIT: Ghostbusters: Get Real #1 will have a second printing! Saw a tweet from Ryan Legrand and dig some digging on Preview World. It is listed on their Previews Plus #1187 pdf.

It releases August 5. Code is MAY158250E.

EDIT2: June sales are in. Get Real #1 sold 15, 524 units. TMNT/GB #4 was 16, 420. TMNT/GB #1 was 21223. Here's an updated tables of sales for further reference. Click to see full view.

Just picked up issue one yesterday. Damn that was fun.
Issue #2 Preview: From Spook Central
Is there anyway we can nominate Dan for an Eisner award? I mean seriously he gets 3 distinct styles down in one issue and has them interact. Glad to see the EGB's make a cameo.

lol. Upon seeing what I'm alluding to, some readers will enter into a state of temporary insanity probably something like this.

Hmm. I don't know.... some fans may object to it for it but look at it this way, Erik and Dan already pissed off so many people with lady busters wearing short coveralls in Volume 2. lol. :sigh:

Hmmm... just did the early download through iBooks. Fun read, as expected. I'll avoid specifics. One question though...
Was the coloring on page 20 an accident, or a cheeky joke about some of the animation slips in RGB?

Groschopf I think you are right I think it is a joke. I think Dan Schoening is way too sharp to have that not be intentional.

Sorry for being dense, but I have to ask. Is there a good place to find release dates for these? IDWs site may have them, but I'm having no joy finding them!
They're always posted on the GBFans Shop.

Though the dates have slipped a little bit since they were first announced.

I wonder if GBFans could get its own variant cover for a GB comic someday...

I think Tristan Jones did a GB Fans cover once. I think it was an illustration for a single cover and not mass printed.

Ok some of those other GB teams were lost on me.
I recognised
The original cast idea with the helmets and wands
The sanctum of slime team
The sega genesis team
*i think* the team from the Japanese slot machine?
The Nintendo ghostbusters 2 team
The original RGB promo team
The video game stylised team
Hulk Hogan's ghost wrestlers (there was a ghostbusters parody episode)
The filmation ghostbusters
The RGB peoplebusters
And the Slimer and the RGB team

The only one I'm not sure on is the realistic drawing mid second page. Is it nick runge's folks?

The only ones notably missing to my mind are the Legion team and any of the teams from the Tokyopop manga, and who knows what rights issues there may have been with those.
