Ghostbusters Comic Cards

It always bothered me that we never got a proper Topps trading card set for the original Ghostbusters movie. Yes, in 1988 Topps released their "Fright Flicks" set of cards that featured a few shots from the movie, but their was never a dedicated set!
Thankfully in 2016, over 30 years after it's release, Cryptozoic gave us a very cool set of cards highlighting some of the best parts of the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie!
This set was amazing and well worth the wait. The base set of cards consisted of 54 great looking cards. For me though, it's the subsets of this release that really make it stand out. There were "Behind The Scenes", "Character Bios", "Quotes" and "Tricks & Traps Puzzle" sets. My favorite though, has to be the "Sing For Your Specter" comic cards. This set consists of 9 cards that tell an exclusive comic story that was written & drawn by regular IDW Ghostbusters collaborator, Erik Burnham! I'd like to share those cards with you now.

Not the most in depth Ghostbusters comic ever, but it reminds me of the comics we would read in the newspapers every weekend and it is fun to collect. If you would like to score a set of these cards, they can be found fairly cheaply on ebay. I am so ready for Ghostbusters: Afterlife!
