Artist Tristan Jones comments on the possibility of a physical Tobin’s Spirit Guide

Recently there’s been a good amount of talk regarding former IDW Ghostbusters artist, Tristan Jones. Fans have loved his art for many years, especially his much darker depictions of some of the series best characters. Because of this, a legion of Ghostheads have demanded that he illustrate an actual physical edition of the Tobin Spirit Guide for IDW. Sounds like a win-win, right? Wrong. The possibility of this actually happening is currently in limbo.

Here’s what Tristan had to say:

There’s been a bit of movement with fans regarding the Tobin’s Spirit Guide stuff I did and talk of it getting updated and published. I don’t know where the rights sit. We tried at IDW three years ago and Sony couldn’t give us the license, which is how I ended up working on the comics in the first place, I’d heard that this MAY have changed since, so I suggest if you’re interested in seeing something like this published, or have any sort of suggestions click the link below and let them know!

Again, I don’t know if it IS even possible, as I haven’t really had anything to do with IDW since I started working on Hoax Hunters at Image, but if they can’t at least this is a good way to maybe get the word out and find out where it CAN be made possible!
