Discuss the Ghostbusters Comic from IDW, as well as the now defunct Ghostbusters: Legion series.

I have the 2 RGB Omnibus collections which essentially cover the entire NOW Comics run. Does anyone have any tips on how to get my hands on the Marvel UK comics? Other than seeking out the individual issues-

I have an incomplete but pretty large collection I saved from when I was a kid, plus I think I bought an issue 1 not so long ago. Will get round to photographing at some point.

People sometimes sell collections of them on ebay. Maybe speak to a seller of individual issues and ask if they'd sell as a job lot?

The NOW Comics skewed toward a slightly older audience; they aimed more for the feel of the early JMS days while Marvel UK seemed to be going slightly more toward the Slimer! & era.

There are scans of most of the NOW Comics run available on this site:

NOW did reprint Marvel UK stuff in issue 21 (a fill-in) and beginning with #19 often used Marvel UK covers.

NOW got the younger Slimer! & demographic in a separate comic, which beginning in issue 12 featured frequent Marvel UK reprints:

To expand on Fritz's summary, in addition to the stories published by NOW being aimed more towards the older child/teen audience than Marvel UK's, there were instances of longer plot-arcs rather than all the stories being stand-alone, as well as occasional recurring characters, and direct call-backs to episodes and characters from the cartoon beyond the core Ghostbusters, Slimer and Janine.
