Here's a panel detail from the back up story I did for issues 7 and 8 of the Ghostbusters Comic (2 pages in 7, 2 pages in 8). Erik wrote a hilarious 4 pager that features the very best of the Rookie, and the very worst of Ron. Get your pre-orders in for these issues today at your fav comic retailer! You can also follow me on Twitter: Dapperpomade and on Instagram: dannyschoening I post behind the scenes art and sketches on those sites too ;)

Cheers

To me, Ron has always looked like Inspector Gadget.

That is all.

Lol, I hear that once in a while. It was never intended though :) I based his hair on the style Chevy had in Caddyshack. Maybe Chevy was the basis for Inspector Gadget? WHOA, that blew my mind!

...Actually, Chevy being the base for Inspector Gadget would MAKE PERFECT SENSE! Holy cow I'll never be able to not see that now!

I didn't mean anything bad by the character comparison, and besides you've got nothing in the world to prove to me anyway. You're one of the best in the world at what you do. Also, I always thought Inspector Gadget was a secret badass anway. :)

Yes, I agree I already want a spin-off or mini-series. Something! I loved the video game and I loved references to him and his appearances in the comic. More is good. But all we really need are clones of Erik, Luis and Dan. Get on that IDW. ;)

We can get spin offs if the ongoing numbers fly a lot higher. (: Subscribe via shops, GBFans, or comixology and encourage others to do the same! (: #subtleplug

If there's an average sales # for ongoing and a # in mind that has to be met, I'm sure the fandom would rise to the occasion.

Hey, if you want to organize a campaign to have us at around 12-15k a month, in and out, that would probably do it. lol. (;

Perhaps we'll time one right around the release of Issue #7. I don't know how much impact the Tobin one did, though.

I really need to start buying these.  I want to know more about the Rookie after the game!

Ron is a Chevy Chase substitute, right?
sanshugroove's avatar
That is correct. Ron Alexander is visually based on Chevy Chase. In particular from his role in Caddyshack, I believe.

Love it! Especially since Chevy and Dan A. are friendly but Chevy and Bill M. are most definitely NOT. Interesing dynamic there!
sanshugroove's avatar
Definitely. You have to look carefully, but Mr. Schoening does occasionally use SNL alumni for background characters, too.

That guy reminds me of Chevy Chase.

man, i wonder if they'll say the rookies real name, or how they'll tease us by calling him sport, buddy or pal
sanshugroove's avatar
They did reveal his name in an article clipping in Volume 1, Issue #4. It's Bryan Welsh (in IDW continuity only). In #13, Winston did use one of the nicknames from the game I believe. But I also think they'll stick with nicknames like the game.

Knowing Ron? I think the things he might call Rookie would be FAR worse than those...
