I just got the 'Mass Hysteria' hardcover and was so very pleasantly surprised to find this on the last page. There couldn't have been a better place to put it than as an afterward to such a worthy celebration of the film's 30th anniversary.

Ramis may be gone, but he is definitely not forgotten.

RIP Egon Spengler.
That should be a scene in Ghostbusters 3... if there ever is one, it's that heartfelt.

Is this available as a print anyplace?
DanSchoening Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
You can find it as an added supplement to issue #15 of the Ghostbusters comic, as well as the 7th Trade paper back :) No larger prints at this time however. Thanks for your interest!
Juliapopstar Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
This just got me crying. Like, streams of tears down my face...
I think it's because this art just has this strong, emotional impact on me.
Seriously, great job.

Great tribute man!
Wolf-Signs Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
Thanks for the link.

Simply amazing.
A powerful and perfect homage to a great writer, actor and director (Groundhog Day is one of the best comedy movies in my opinion).

Cheers mate.

PS: Looking forward to the new editions of Ghostbusters.

Egon: "Say this twinkie represents the normal amount of psycho-kinetic energy in the New York area, according to this morning's samples it would be a twinkie about Thirty-Five feet long weighing about six-hundred pounds."
Ray: *coughs up a bit of smoke hearing Egon's statement*
Winston: "That's a Big Twinkie!"

dreamweaverm Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014
The loving detail on this just breaks my heart. From the headlines to the snacks to the fact that his uniform is just...sitting there. Ready, waiting, never...never to be used again...

We love you Harold Ramis. We'll miss you always. Godspeed, wherever you've gone.

I have to stop looking at gorgeous Harold Ramis/Egon S. tribute art.  My feels are now just a soggy emotional mess.
RyoLovesMe Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I'm still crying over his loss. He will be missed and always loved!
Schulzfan Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
Hi Dan. I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Ghostbusters. I love the movies, the video game, and the cartoon. Another thing I love are the comics both you and Erik Burnham make. Those comics you two make have really captured what makes Ghostbusters great. Like a lot of fans I am saddened by the death of Harold Ramis. I rarely feel sad upon hearing the death of a celebrity, but in this case I was. Although he worked on other projects to me he'd always be Egon Spengler. Your tribute art is the best I've seen online. Will this be included in any of the comics? Anyway, thank you for both continuing the Ghostbusters legacy and honoring a fallen Ghostbuster.
DreadedOne131 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
Fantastic!  However some other hints at the other movies he did would have been nice.  This seems to be a Spengler only tribute!  But very nicely done!
DanSchoening Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you :) Actually there are other references to Harold's work in the clippings. Swing by the amazing Luis Delgado's post of this piece and you'll see them better :)… Cheers
DreadedOne131 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
Trying to remember, wasn't he also behind the Ghost buster's cartoon and gave Tara Strong her break as a voice actress in Extreme Ghostbusters?
