The comics are more canon over something that has all the actors from the films in it, and something we were told was basically Ghostbusters 3, since it's been taking forever for us to get one? Okay, that doesn't make a lot of sense to me at all.
Why not just include everything? I see no real reason to contradict the game. You don't really even have to mention it all that much. I'm sure the casual fans would just gloss over any mention of the game events as 'just some past adventure the GBs had that we haven't seen' and move on. And I didn't mean to imply that there were NO casual fans picking up the book, but I doubt there are that many compared to the hardcore guys. I would worry more about what the hardcore fans want to see, as that is where most of your customer base lies. Of course, you have to listen to what Sony says, and I get that.
Oh well, from what I've read so far, you haven't really contradicted it too much, so I'm probably worrying over nothing. I'm just one of those fans that likes everything to fit together, and don't understand why creators don't want that as well. And by creators I mean the actual owners of the franchise. One big story that fits together is always more enjoyable than a bunch of stories that contradict each other every time you turn around.
And I'm not too worried about the new movie contradicting the game OR the comics. Pretty sure it'll be set in modern day, while the original movies/game/comic timeline is only up to the late 90s, so plenty of wiggle room there. And if we get a complete redo ala nuTrek, it doesn't matter anyway.
I AM loving the comic so far, though. Don't think I'm saying otherwise.
All I'm asking is, please don't contradict the game if you don't have to. (I'm only through Vol. 2 of the trades, so I'm still a bit behind. )
Thanks for answering, Erik. Honored that your first post was in my humble thread.
