Ghostbusters’ gallery of ghouls has quite the history behind it, even if the films never really delved that deep into the origins of its most famous spooks and demons. A new book plans to do just that, and we’ve got a first look at some of the details held within.

Tobin’s Spirit Guide: Official Ghostbusters Edition, updated by Doctors Ray Stanz, Egon Spengler (not really), written by Erik Burnham, and with art by Kyle Hotz (yes really), styles itself as the research book briefly mentioned in the original movie chronicling New York’s ghostly history. Covering ghosts featured in the films, comics, games, and even the animated show, Tobin’s Spirit Guide gives you the lowdown on anything that may or may not be strange in your neighborhood—although if you do happen upon something that looks like that in real life, it’s probably best to call someone about it.

Before I make any more terrible jokes, here’s a few pages from the book, making their debut here on io9. Don’t forget to click the magnifying glass to embiggen!

Very nice. Makes me think of the cool Tobin’s Spirit Guide that was made for the old Ghostbusters RPG.

God, I need to track down another copy of that.
