THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS keep losing business to a flashy new rival ghost-catching company: SPOOKS AWAY! They seem to have better gear, better threads... better everything! In face, Spooks Away seems determined to ruin the RGB. But there's something far more sinister than a hostile takeover going on here, and it's up to Ray Stantz to go undercover to find out who - or what - is behind Spook Away's rise to supernatural elimination superstardom.[2]
