Ghostbusters: Answer The Call 3 is the third issue of a five part series by IDW Publishing.


"What Dreams May Come" Part 3! The big bad evil aka Schreckgespenst aka Shrecky used its power to create living nightmares to drive a wedge between our heroes. And while the team struggles to come back together, Schrecky makes a bid for world takeover... obviously.

  • This is it! Don't miss the ladies from the 2016 film in their very own series!
  • What or who is powerful enough to cut through the team's fear and self-doubt to bring them back together? Is it KEVIN?! (Spoiler alert: it is not Kevin.)
  • Will this be the issue where Holtzmann builds a weapon that either makes perfect scrambled eggs or destroys all life on earth? Ha! Trick question-that's EVERY ISSUE!
  • Part of IDW's Artist's Edition Cover Month! [1]
