Ghostbusters PDF eBook Preservation Project - Starburst Magazine

 By Paul Rudoff on Mar. 10, 2012 at 5:49 AM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Books, Preservation
A nice vintage magazine has been preserved this time around. On the Ghostbusters Books page you can now find a PDF ebook containing all of the Ghostbusters articles from the December 1984 issue of Starburst magazine. All of the "Making of Ghostbusters" articles were written by Randy and Jean-Marc Lofficier. If those names sound familiar, that's because they would later write The Real Ghostbusters episodes "The Headless Motorcyclist" and "The Ghostbusters In Paris".

Mucho thanks to Lee Taylor for providing the scans from his magazine (it took me three years and four months, but I finally got it on the site) and, as always, Matthew Jordan for the clean-up and restoration of the scans. Oh, yeah, for those playing along at home... Richard Roy now has up to issue #11 (ELEVEN!) of NOW's The Real Ghostbusters comic books in the Ectocontainment's Comics section. So go check that out when you're done here.

Finally, there are four images from this issue of Starburst magazine that I thought were worth uploading separately from the magazine to the Spook Central Facebook page. Some of the old-timers will recognize some of these from when Bill Emkow had them on his site. Yes, that's adult film legend Ron Jeremy on the left in the second image. Yes, a pornstar appears in an official Ghostbusters production photo :-)

My little fellow is obsessed with Ghostbusters at the moment, and I bought him a little book (Mr Men sized) off ebay, printed in 1984.

That ‘cartoon’ pic is in the front cover.

There is also a pic of Winston and Ray at the Fort, which until I saw the book, and found this site looking for t-shirts, I’d never even seen before.
