    I'm glad someone else noticed this. Its the exact same plot, except Egon was the last man standing.

    I think you and I may have different definitions of the phrase "exact same." (;

    Kylie is in this arc a bit more prominently... but it's not set years after the original Ghostbusters have retired and went on their separate ways. It's not a new team of young folk being mentored by [any of the] originals.

    It does pay homage to a couple of RGB stories, however...but that's it.

    Considering we haven't seen the plot, or anything beyond covers, it is a bit early to say the plots are the same.

    Given the history of the ongoing GB title, we'll probably see plenty of nods to Ghostbusters history; but I doubt the creative team will be lifting any stories directly from Extreme GB.

    Edit: Should've read the rest of the thread before responding. Looks like Mr. Burnham already covered everything I just said.

    Weird that only Kylie survives from the cartoon. I liked the others. So does this trash continuity or is this set even after that to leave wiggle room for the other characters. I gotta say, as cheesy and 90s as putting a guy in a wheelchair in the toon was... he was a good character.

    The bloke looks a bit like Chevy Chase. A young Chevy Chase, obviously.
    Hey you! You should read The Cynic's Survival Guide To Disney Animated Classics on my blog (updated every Friday!). I would, if I was in your position.

    YES! You made my day! Best news of 2012. Thanks!

    Now I just have to buy at least three copies to make sure I get the Kylie cover. =)

    I was more like "Why is Inspector Gadget one of the Ghostbusters now?"

    'If there's something strange in your neighborhood.
    Who ya gonna call?'

    Now I can't take that damned song from my mind.
