I don't have it in front of me, but when I read it yesterday, I thought it was Janine talking about the sharpie and how no one labels anything even though they have Sharpies. I could be wrong, I went through it fast in the parking lot of the store, I haven't examined every page yet like I do later at home.

Thanks for the info on the Sanctum of Slime reference. I haven't played it so I had no idea who they were.

Once I saw the 'extra scenes' that appeared in Issue #1 and #3, I realized how open ended that episode was. But for Proteus, even before the comic, I assumed his Achilles heel was to his own abilities and thus the energy overload created by the feedback loop of the mirrors blew him and his building up. If anything, his physical body was discorporated and essence blown away to another dimension. imo.

I figure that with #4 coming out this week, I should get off my ass and post my snark on #3.

Fritz Babbles About Ghostbusters Get Real #3
We now return to the "Janine Melnitz: Ghostbuster" commercial break.

We start off with IDW Ray using RGB Egon's old space suit ("X-Mas Marks The Spot", recycled into the "Super Fright Features" action figure) to go through the dimensional portal to RGB Earth, where he get slimed and almost encounters the member of the RGB cast who didn't make the dimensional trim back in issue 1, Janine. IDW Janine thinks RGB Janine sounds awful--I think almost everyone in Ghosthead land disagrees, but at least IDW Janine heard her now instead of a season later. You think IDW Janine denies RGB Janine now, wait until RGB Janine has a personality amputation, drops about thirty IQ points, and starts sounding like a helium-sucking cheerleader. But the most important thing is that IDW Ray has heard RGB Janine mention Proteus--they know who their foe is now.

Proteus's poodle, meanwhile, is getting closer--he's made it to the IDW Universe, but it's a decade or so in the future: the Ghostbusters Cerberus encounters are Alan Crendall, Bridget Gibbons, Samuel Hazer, Gabriel Sitter, and their driver Geoff (who appears to have no last name) as seen in the Sanctum of Slime video game, which was written by IDW editor Tom Waltz. Crendall was last seen in GB#1 as a kid, and he's the nephew of Janosz Poha, Vigo's poodle from GB2. Ananke, perhaps tired of Cerberus wrecking hell in space and time, points him in the right direction, but not without a reminder of her assertion that "Proteus, you reeeeeeealy don't want to do this..."

(I can't help but wonder, though, that if this miniseries had been made a year or so later, if Cerberus would have visited a universe where the Ghostbusters don't form until 2016 and they're all women. Maybe he still did "off camera")

The four or eight, depending on how you count them, Ghostbusters have researched Proteus and are trying to come up with an idea. IDW Egon recommends proton grenades; RGB Egon totally agrees, having created something similar himself. It's also this part that we have some more characterization fun, with the two Ray's excitedly talking about the improvements the IDW guys have made (since they've had as much as a decade or so to do it) and the two Winstons calmly try to keep everything from getting too crazy. But the best banter between dimensional counterparts comes when Cerberus shows up at GBCentral-IDW, and of course it's Venkman:

RGB Venkman: "Hey, other me! Try to blind it with your bald spot!"

IDW Venkman: "Winston, I think I'm about to kill myself."

Kylie activates the Red Sox trap (see GB#24 (V2#6)), which isn't powerful enough to send Cerberus all the way to the Containment Unit, but delays him long enough for the four/eight Ghostbusters to get their proton packs. Kylie gets another good moment as she hauls out the super trap, the one that looks like the one one of her toys came with, and manages to contain Cerberus.

Time to celebrate, right?

Hah hah no. Cerberus was defeated, but he accomplished his mission--he led Proteus straight to IDW GBHQ. This is bad. For one thing, Proteus is currently about twelve feet tall and must weight a ton or two, because the ECTO-1 he's standing on is being smashed under the strain. That's gonna play hell on the shocks.

We'll be back for the conclusion of the "Janine Melnitz: Ghostbuster" commercial break after these messages.

Story

Kylie and Janine stranded in Tokyo with the Megatrap holding the Cerberus manifestation... hilarious! Figured it would end in the embassy but too bad they couldn't fit in a panel of Janine calling Peck on the phone and him not believing her or something funny. But that last panel with the ghost. Yeah...

Considering the damage done to the Firehouse from the end of the Mass Hysteria! arc, the TMNT/GB arc and now in this issue... what is the heck is their insurance premiums like?

Rather brilliant to utilize Proteus' pet peeve to weaken him in-story (and set up his demise), show future cases in the RGB, and seed the future of the IDW canon. Obviously one is the Sandman in the upcoming annual but the other three visions... it'll be fun to see how they figure. Also loved the irony of another god forcing Winston to make a hard choice in the Firehouse basement. At least this time, it doesn't involve him dying...shrug.

Favorite line: "We met weird versions of ourselves with boring hair and then got zapped into limbo by some guy in a toga."

As I thought, nice sync up to the end of "Janine Melnitz, Ghostbuster" and neat to see some more 'extra scenes' added in. Nice touch to show Claudia was okay.

I may be wrong about this, but the woman on page 9 kind of looks like the female buster from Ghost Negotiator Tenma.
Her earrings also kind of looks like the logo too, but it may be just a generic ghost also.

I do see the resemblance to the character Mukunoki Rika and that does look the like the ghost earrings, too. If the last page is any indication, maybe more paranormal activity in Japan?

Erik did admit he initially had other ideas for the parallel universes to be shown but due to a time crunch I think, Dan picked his own. I bet if that 2 pager was a 3 pager, more universe like the 2 you mentioned would have appeared.

All in all, this has been one hell of an arc, which was over too soon. :) If anything, I think this speaks for how well IDW handles the Real Ghostbusters property, and any dip into that arm of the franchise again would always be welcome.

I think it's fair to say Get Real is one of my all-time favourite arcs in the IDW series, and it's because of how well they captured the look, feel and spirit of the title.

And I'm really glad the comic is going into a third volume next year. Can't wait to pick up the annual. :)

Yeah, I guessing maybe chibi figures from one of the classic GB games?

I think Stay Puft is one the black vertical billboard and maybe the Icon Ghost on the white vertical one. Think.

Page 9: Oh yeah. Interesting. So the Louvre, a monk ghost with a bird mask, a woman maybe based on a Japanese property and the IDW Sandman. Hmm.

Page 13: I thought so, too, but the Collectors are usually referred to as demons.

Figured out one more easter egg. On page 2 and 3, both panel 4, on Janine's desk by the phone is the back cover of Weird Magazine from "Mr. Sandman, Dream Me a Dream" (it was like an ad for skinny people to get huge muscles).

including the potential for new hires! Who ever could take such an extreme task as covering for the OGBs in New York? I don't know, with Kylie & Eduardo all ready introduced, and Roland in the background a few times, it's might be that "obvious"

or could we be seeing some all new recruits?

I'd actually go with new recruits who are original characters. And it has been a while since we last saw a certain blond-haired Ghostsmasher.
This also now puts some of Proteus' revelations into context, explaining the appearance of the Louvre, and giving us the likely name of the location with a decidedly Italian flavour.

This week's Interdimensional Crossrip podcast featured an interview from Dan Schoening who said some interesting things. Starting at the 1:15:30 mark or so:

1) ANNUAL 2015

The annual takes place around 5 days to a week after the events of Ghostbusters: Get Real #4.

2) GET REAL #2

Some other universes either not allowed or there was no room for included LEGO versions, female versions of the guys, a team that was ghosts (not the Peoplebusters), a team with just Janine Melnitz and Louis Tully, and a team led by Melanie Ortiz with some females.

3) GET REAL #4

The woman in Proteus' visions is related to where Kylie and Janine got sent to.

So gboy6 appears to have called it. ;)

4) GET REAL TRADE PAPERBACK

Some of the parallel dimensions seen in Issue #2 were changed in the trade to show other continuities.

5) VOLUME 3

The crew is going to try something with what Elaine predicted in Ghostbusters II.

Maybe there's something in Issue #2 since that comes out in February 2016.

Get Real #4 sold 8325 units. Down from #3 but still solid number and solid sales overall for the mini (#1 was 15524, #2 was 9218, and #3 was 9730).

Noticed something new-ish in IDW's NYCC wrap up but for Ghostbusters International they had a new blurb. Of note, I bolded:
This January there’s something strange in the neighborhood... and whether that neighborhood is in New York City or Venice, Italy, the Ghostbusters will be there! After a bust at the United Nations, the boys in gray are engaged to investigate an Old-World haunting, where they begin to unravel a mystery that sends them around the globe (while still trying to keep their contract with the City, County, and State of New York!). Series writer Erik Burnham and artist Dan Schoening invite you to join them for the next chapter in the Ghostbusters history!
The CBR article, they tried to be a little vague with a connective mystery. But nice to see a bit more.

It will be so interesting to see who comes back to fill in at the NYC branch:

1) Melanie and Jenny is still a question mark for since considering their elevated positions have kept them busy. Melanie is on her own 'Haunted America' arc as FBI liaison and Jenny is a PCOC liaison. Would Peck let a PCOC employee suit up?

2) Or will they pull in the some or all 4 of the Chicago GB to NYC and doom Chicago again?

3) Some completely new characters? That could be a breath of fresh air. Or fans might organize and storm Brainerd.

4) Will Eduardo strap on a pack?

5) Will Roland and Garrett be formally introduced? The former has a cameo/easter egg at Winston and Tiyah's wedding.

6) Could the other two Rookies from The Video Game debut after a few references here and then in the ongoing?

7) Rachel Ungligh -- Nah.

Other residual thoughts on the announcement -- I can understand now why Erik said we weren't getting a new Haunted America story arc. It's a Haunted World now. lol.

It's also amusing that with Ghostbusters International, the IDW canon has garnered another similarity to The Real Ghostbusters -- globe trotting cases.

And I think the January solicits drop this coming week so we might get no info, we might not. At least the Diamond order codes so we can preorder the heck out of this.

EDIT 10/19: Annual appears done. And Erik posted a preview of a section of the World the Psychic story.

Solicit is out and pretty much verbatim of IDW's NYCC summary above.
There's something strange in the neighborhood... and whether that neighborhood is in New York City or Venice, Italy, the Ghostbusters will be there! After a bust at the United Nations, the boys in gray are engaged to investigate an Old World haunting, where they begin to unravel a mystery that sends them around the globe (while still trying to keep their contract with the City, County, and State of New York!). Join us for the next chapter in Ghostbusters history - because you demanded it: GHOSTBUSTERS INTERNATIONAL!
Order code is NOV150348.
