The Return Of John Belushi To Ghostbusters, Today From IDW

Ghostbusters the movie was originally written to co-star John Belushi alongside Dan Ackroyd, reuniting the Blues Brothers pair. After Belushi's death, his role was taken by Bill Murray. And on set the Slimer ghost was given the sobriquet of Belushi…

Thirty years on, IDW has given us a kind-of Blues Brothers/Ghostbusters crossover than reuintes the pair. A Belushi out of Blues Brothers and an Ackroyd out of Ghostbusters together again. By having Jake Blues as a spirot guide to Ray Stanz.

They've done it before. But today they do it again…

gb1Shame he cant turn up in the Princess Leia comic book as well…
