Holy guacamole, there's a lot to talk about this week. How about a special two-hour episode to fit it all in? And how about some quick bullet-points on what's discussed? CinemaCon, Al Roker's Today Show set visit, Activision Console Game, EXCLUSIVE details on that packed Ghost Corps merchandise cabinet (hint: Mattel merch details galore!), MTV Movie Awards, Adam Ray as the voice of Slimer, books, Ray Parker Jr., Dubai Motiongate Theme Park, Cryptozoic's Ghostbusters II: The Board Game, Yahtzee! Anovos, the Ghostbusters: Ultimate Visual History Special Edition, a scientific study on the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River and how they relate to Ghostbusters II, the Largo Ghostbusters doing some great charity work, Golden Cadillacs, VOICEMAILS!, -- geez, did we miss anything? Probably!
On this week's Crossrip, we're pleased to be joined by the author of the recently released Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History, Mr. Daniel Wallace! Join Troy and Chris for a rundown of all the news that's fit to podcast then an in-depth discussion with Dan on the process of writing a visual history book and stories from behind the scenes. On this week's news: more information on Ryan Kemp and how you can pay tribute in his memory, lots of IDW and merchandising news out of NYCC including the premise of the new on-going series, Diamond Select's action figure line (and that big-armed Slimer), and some micro-figures from Cryptozoic.
