Ghostbusters – Ghostbusters: Chicago Heat – MK Stangeland Jr.

(Set in the same universe as the original Ghostbusters movies, but with a branch that has been established in Chicago [In contrast to the New York ‘Home Office’ where the original team is still located] with a new team of characters.)

(4 Panels)

Panel 1: Two GHOSTBUSTERS-style vehicles, with license plates labeled ECTO-5 and ECTO-6, charge down the streets of Chicago during the late hours of the night, complete with blaring sirens.

SFX: WEE-do! WEE-do! WEE-do! WEE-do!

SCHMIT (1): (From the driver seat of ECTO-6) Hey guys, remember when I said how cool it would be to have car-mounted Proton Beams?

SCHMIT (2): (From driver seat of ECTO-6) And you were all ‘No, Charles, that’s a stupid idea!’?

Panel 2: SAMANTHA McCAIN emerges through a hatch on the top of ECTO-6, armed with an oversized proton pack gun, the kind designed to be mounted on a turret.

McCAIN (1): Yes, we get it, Chuck.

McCAIN (2): We got it the first five-hundred thousand times.

Panel 3: ECTO-5, driving just ahead of ECTO-6, with NORMAN HULTZ in the drivers seat and LEE EVRITS poking out the top with another oversized proton pack turret, much like McCAIN.

EVRITS (1): For the record?

EVRITS (2): I still think they’re a stupid idea.

HULTZ: They’re only stupid if they don’t do their job.

Panel 4: A team of ghosts rushes from out of a nearby intersection, it would practically run ECTO-5 and ECTO-6 over if it were physical and wasn’t flying; it’s an entire team of an old-school, horse-drawn fire truck, complete with four firemen and four horses pulling it through the sky.

SFX: [Horse Whinny of some kind]
