Very pleasing to see some more GB content coming in addition to GB101. ^_^
Roland Jackson: It's OK, Kylie.
Kylie Griffin: I blocked it from my memory. Until it came back last night.
-Extreme Ghostbusters - Grundlesque (early script)
One we saw before: https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/MAR170458
Toy Variant: https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/MAR170459
An ancient Japanese prophecy foretold that when the Masters of the Four Winds unite, they would become unstoppable. Instead, the four masters killed each other in battle, proving the prophecy false. More than 600-years later, an ancient shuriken is unearthed, releasing the spirit of one of the masters to seek out and resurrect the other three in order to fulfill the prophecy. Now, the only thing that stands between the undead ninja and the destruction of the land of the living is... the Ghostbusters!
• Part of this month's big FUNKO UNIVERSE event!
• Fresh off the successful launch of the new app, these stories focus on the fun and magic surrounding one of the world's most popular and well recognized game properties!

Oh, good; I'm not the only one who noticed that. As subtle as the tilt was, it really bothered me...
What they have on -59 is not the Funko Toy variant. It is the RI Cover.
On a third cover I found: It is not the RI cover. It is the Funko Toy variant being shown.
EDIT - Nevermind, I read the synopsis a few posts back. I was just afraid this was only Funko-fying what we were already familiar with. Looks like a pre-order for me.
It was pretty amusing they addressed how the ghosts could speak contemporary English instead of classic Japanese.
The Nether Regions/Netherworld/Netherlands dialogue cracked me up. Also cracked me up when the undead get perplexed with the Ghostbusters' commentary and there's that one pondering what Peter said about art. lmao.
The "too soon?" ending was perfect. Nice to get a well done company wide event one shot. This and last year's Deviations were very enjoyable. Now back to 101!!
Also, just when I thought we'd have a comic without any Dan Schoening art in it -- an ad at the end with his Winston design and the assorted collections page. lol.
