Is Now's RGB an official comic or book? I'd be interested in any that were close to season 1 and 2 style, particularly anything with E/J stuff.


Now Comics was officially licensed. It did do a good job of sticking closer to the tone and characterizations of the JMS era; for an Egon/Janine fan, the highlights would be issue 16 (flat-out post-GB2 dismissal of the Janine/Louis fling), issue 19 (they go on a date), and issue 28 (they go on an even longer, more eventful date)

I found a few RGB comic compilations on Amazon but there weren't any reviews or detailed descriptions for them.


Those are probably the Titan Books reprints of the RGB comics Marvel UK did. The Marvel UK comics had shorter, more simplistic stories. They were more like the post-JMS era's Slimer! cartoons.

The absolute best place to find out more about all the comics:

I just also have to vent here and say how bummed I was that Janine and Egon's relationship never really developed (on the show) after "Janine You've changed." He did ask her out at the end of the episode. I wish they would have followed through with the date. That could have been a good premise of an episde: E/J trying to be on a romantic date but keep getting disrupted by ghosts. I don't even recall any scenes when they were close to each other or had any kind of physical contact as they did past episodes like Ghostbusted (the hug) The Copycat (the hug) and Camping It Up (when she had his arm around him when Ray was telling the Ghost Story). In the episode "2000 Leagues Underthe Street" they could at least had Janine and Egon go to that bug exhibit (or whatever it was) instead of Janine and Winston. It seemed that Egon and Janine were closer before "Janine you've changed" and hardly anything after. So what was the point of "Janine You've Changed?" If it weren't for fan fiction, in the grand scheme of things for E/J fans, it was pretty pointless. :(

Welcome to the board. :D

Yeah, I was really miffed about how the writers totally dropped the ball...in my head I thought that maybe I had missed a few episodes, or that they weren't playing them in order when the episode right after "Janine, You've Changed" totally ignored the whole relationship. I kept watching waiting to see them on date or something...nada.

Similiar thing happened with "Robo-Buster"...I thought "where does Egon get the right to be upset? He's pretty much ignored her the whole time" then I got excited and thought that I had missed a couple of episodes where maybe there was a relationship developed...I figured in order for the writers to make him so boldly jealous they had to work off of something. This was back in the days before the Internet so I was just guessing. But again -- nada.

I'm not saying the show had to be E/J based...it was Ghostbusters after all...but they coulda thrown us a bone with a date, some other sign of progression in the relationship, ya know?

I noticed the American(?) episode guide has JYC at the start of that season. But when it was played in Oz it was the last ep of the season (there were several eps that they did not play either which pissed me off when I found out). I didn't mind at all that it was the last ep of the season played in my neck of the woods as the next & last season had only about 5 eps, so I can imagine they were dating during that time & we just get to didn't see it. ;) Although I too wonder why Winston went with her to the museum. Maybe she'd been going on about it so the other's made up excuses that they couldn't go, but he was the slowest to respond & then got dragged along against his will.

And yes of course they're soul mates. They can always feel each other no matter how far apart they may become. I too have noticed that he looks uncomfortable in the lab in The Copycat as if he can tell thats it's not his Janine, then late on when it is Janine he's all smiles. I wish I could get issue 28 of the Now comics, 'cause I don't have it yet. :cry:

BTW here's another video I made for Janine & Egon...
It's called "Oh Egon..." for the number of times she said it to him in RGB. :mrgreen:

I hope you all like it. :)

I just wanted to say that my neighbour's boyfriend's car, which is red, (don't ask me what make & model it is. I wouldn't have a clue, though my 8 year old niece could tell you) has a licence plate that read: 702 EJL
I have no idea how the 702 could possibly of signifigance to Janine & Egon but of course the EJL must be for Egon/Janine/Love. :ej4ever:
Maybe 7 is how many years it took for Egon to admit his feelings for Janine & the 02 is for the amount of kids they have! :lol:
I don't know. I just had to share. :)

I'm sorry, but I think that is just so sad! :roll: Especially the screwed up accompanying storyline for it! There's about 4 others like that from the same user too! :|
Next it'll be Ray/Vigo or something.
Actually there is a Ray/Peter slash video floating about on there somewhere too.
Now i'll have something to laugh myself to sleep about! :lol:

Loved your video, and so did a number of my 80's vintage friends. :D

There seems to be a good amount of discussion concerning the E/J moments in RGB, but I also find the dynamic in EGB as interesting, if not more in some ways (the love lost-and-found theme is definitely fun to work with.) Consider: poor ol' Egon has been living alone for however many years with a ghost for company, and when the business revives, he's brilliant with the gadgets but has a terrible time running the place. I'd argue that the cute part of EGB is Egon coming to a realization that like it or not, he needs Janine around... professionally, and personally too.

The two of them are so married in "Fallout" - it's adorkable.
