While IDW's consistently released miniseries and specials over the past few years, licensed Ghostbusters comics haven't been a monthly staple more or less since The Real Ghostbusters animated series tie-ins wrapped in the early '90s. According to a teaser on IDW Publisher/
Sure, seeing beloved characters visually reduced to pixelated Nintendo Entertainment System homages is cool, but some artists out there take their quests even further in their portraiture oeuvres and push their limits to to near Atari 2600 levels to see how low-res they can really go. Andy Rash is one of them, and he's taken on Ghostbusters, Star Wars and various Beatles eras over the course of an
Beards: Alec Longstreth's two-years-and-running vow not to shave until he completes his graphic novel Basewood, has yielded wonderfully furry dividends - and he's still got a little more than a fourth of the project left to go!
