Tristan for the WIN! This is amazing mate! Downright epic! You should convince them to print this as a poster, I know I'd have to buy one!

I also love how you threw in Egon's RGB pack-in ghost. ;)

Oh, believe me I noticed. I just think the yellow gooper is my fav. But yes, I can see the Imps from Janine's day off, the Paranatural Being from Loathe thy Neighbor, and is that the subway ghost down in front? ;)

I'm probably now gonna get reprint for the cover ; ) .. sometimes second print covers have more captivating artwork!

the Ninja Turtles and Star Trek titles make it a magic 3 IDW's on my shopping list.. Nice work really, rekindling my favourite TV shows..

Please do! I'd love to do more like this, so make sure you let Tom/IDW know you dug it! It is a great time for all those properties innit?

Pester the comic shops, or hit GBFans.com! They'll be able to get them in for you either way. If they don't know what you're talking about, just show them the site :)

Although the ovbious choice would have been to include Venkman on the cover with Dana at his feet, UI must admit I like your choice, it gives Egon much deserved spotlight!
Reply
:icont-rexjones:
T-RexJones Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Originally I drew it with Dana as Zuul and Venkman, but Sony and IDW said no (likeness rights). S'all good though! This works pretty well!

Be sure to send one to IDW, too -- I got plenty more ideas where this came from ;)

Good to see Egon getting some spotlight....

are you doing the cover for #3's reprint? will it be similar concept wise (homage to a film poster)?

I'm a big sucker for cute concepts... and this may be the sign I need to bite the bullet and get this addedd to my standing order...
Reply
:icont-rexjones:
T-RexJones Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011
Are you seriously telling me you didn't already have it in your standing order?! For shame! I trust that's about to change?

I would love to do more, but it's up to you guys as fans and IDW. If you guys want more, you need to let IDW know. :)
Reply
:iconarjaytheguy:
ArjaytheGuy Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
yeah... right now my standing order is only "Scalped"... I've stopped looking at Previews and make much fewer trips to comic shops.....


...but then I see something like this cover and I KNOW that I'll have to get it (I was giving it serious thought when All Star in Melbourne were promoting your work on it -loved your TMNT stuff by the way... got that from Classic Comics back in the days when I was buying.... shiteloads of stuff from them).

already requested this cover.. know to word up IDW on the fact that I want more like this!
Reply
:icont-rexjones:
T-RexJones Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Please do, as I said, love to do more!

And thanks too, for the kind words on the old work. I've been talking Turtles with Bobby C at IDW, and will be doing the Infestation book early next March, but we've talked about revisiting the Mirage Universe as well, so if there's support for that, we may just finish off those old Turtles stories :)

ArjaytheGuy Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Done and done... I just sent an email to the "letters@idwpublishing.com" email address... i wasn't really sure where best to direct my compliments / request.

I'd be very interested to see some of the Mirage stuff being revisted (I'm curious to see how the IDW Hardcover reprints of the early stuff turn out... I've still got my "First Publishing" trade's kicking around from my childhood).

I'm not too sure about the Infestation stuff.. I missed the early Infestation or Infection series so I'm not sure what to make of it (although you writing the TMNT again is a big incentive for me to give it a try).

Regardless... Hope you get to make more pieces like this! (because that means I'll get to look at them (and hopefully buy them!).

Do you ever go to any of the conventions in Melbourne or is that not really your scene?

to clarify I meant when this current Ghostbusters series was announced and being promoted I gave serious thought to adding it to my list...
