A group of ghosts take over a low-rated TV station, and the Ghostbusters are hired by the station manager to deal with the problem. The Ghostbusters arrive to find an Egyptian motif inside the station and a horde of ghosts ready to fight them. If that wasn’t enough, they also come face-to-face with The Nameless One again! Ghosts, Mummies and bad reruns…could this mean cancellation for the Ghostbusters?
This issue gives a preview of the Ghostbusters' latest vehicle, Ecto-3. However, when the actual Ecto-3 debuted as a compact motorcycle stored in Ecto-1 on the animated series, this one was changed to Ecto-4. Ecto-2 was also mentioned, but never appeared during the run of the comic series.
In a similar situation, Ecto-1A was originally going to be called Ecto-2 in the second movie, but was changed to avoid confusion with the Ecto-2 of the animated series. In a couple of montage shots, you can see the license plate (reading Ecto-2) blurred out on Ecto-1A.
