Egon, this reminds me.... by DanSchoening Egon, this reminds me.... by DanSchoening
Peter:...of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that?
Egon: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.

So how would that scene actually have played out?

Here's my take on the moments before Egon attempts to drill a hole in his head. In case you are unfamilar with the concept of drilling a hole in your head, it's correct medical term is "Trepanation" or "Trepanning." It is centuries old in practice. And some believed that drilling a hole in your head would cause more blood to rush to your brain. Therefore, making you think better. I'm assuming Egon thinks he could expand his brain capacity this way ;) Here is the wiki entry on trepanation, [link] a very interesting read.

So what better way to kick off October, than with some Ghostbusters art! Big thanks to :iconsweete: too :D

Cheers

I believe on the IDW Ghostbusters wiki, it's mentioned that one of these future issues will have a tribute to Harold Ramis in it.  I believe, if you buy the paperbacks (like I do that combine issues), it'll be Paperback Issue #7 that comes out sometime in April (April 22 for Amazon buyers).  But don't quote me on that, I'm not an official anyone with the artists, illustrators, writers, IDW, etc.  Just a big, dedicated fan who happened upon what seems to be information.

And I hope that was okay for me to share that information on here Dan.  If not, let me know, and I'll gladly remove the comment.

This is super cool! I love all the little things! Like the drill effect, the light reflecting off the glasses, and the dust particles passing in front of the light. This is fantastic!

I often found myself wondering how that came to be.

Only Egon would have tried to do this. Great Job!
