The ultimate guide to the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 is now available for pre-order and publisher Insight Editions has a Ghostbusters exclusive for NYCC this year. The first 40 people to visit their booth and preorder the book get a limited edition (40 copies) Ghostbusters Ectomobile poster, signed by Ivan Reitman!

Three decades after the release of the original Ghostbusters film, fans can finally discover the secrets of the team’s iconic specter-smashing automobile, Ecto-1, in Ghostbusters: Ectomobile: Owner’s Workshop Manual. Along with a detailed breakdown of Ecto-1’s capabilities and exclusive cutaway images that showcase the car’s souped-up engine and onboard spook-seeking equipment, this comprehensive owner’s workshop manual focuses on the Ghostbusters’ portable tools of the trade, including proton packs, ghost traps, and PKE meters.

The book also looks at various models of Ecto-1, including the Ecto-1A from Ghostbusters II and the version of Ecto-1 seen in 2016’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. With commentary from fan-favorite characters like Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Jillian Holtzmann, Ghostbusters: Ectomobile: Owner’s Workshop Manual is the ultimate guide to the Ghostbusters’ legendary vehicles and the ghoul-grabbing equipment the cars haul from one job to the next.
