Fellow comic book fans :3

I'm wondering exactly which is the first official appearance of the Ghostbusters? I've been looking and CGC doesn't seem to have an official key comment-label on the vertification page to clarify this? The logical route to be to state that the 1st appearance is Ghostbusters #1 in 1987, published by First Comics; though I'm curious if it's another comic.

What do you think?

All comments are welcomed.

Yeah, thanks, but I was after some clarification as to whether that was the first appearance in the comics?

That Ghostbusters wasn't the same as the Murray/Akroyd/Ramis movie, though. It was based on a not-so-great Filmation TV show from the 70s.

The movie ghostbusters first appearance was from Now Comics "The Real Ghostbusters". There was about 30 issues over two volumes, plus a Slimer series that ran 20 issues or so. That would be the series I'd go for (if I was collecting them).

CGC most likely does not have it labled. They label based on demand from customers.

This one-shot came out before.

That 3-D comic was published in 1991 (according to comics.org) and came out right before the second volume of The Real Ghostbusters. The first volume came out in '88.

I can sort of confirm the Real Ghostbusters #1 is the first appearance, well it sort of it and it isn't both at once, but not that one :3

There's also a much rarer mini comic that came out from Filmation a year before this promoting this comic

OK, my source was showing October 1986.

Actually it's not a preview.. it's a one shot discussing some licensing material. But it does carry the ghostbuster crew as the main story characters. Also it came out in 1985. Not 86. Pretty weird stuff

I prefer the original Ghostbusters from 1975.

Just quoting to see if the new system censors you as Spoon Pontoon. I always found that funny.

Carry on...
