Italian ghosthead Joe Nonostante spent a year (what were you doing?) by not only translating Tobin’s Spirit Guide to Italian, (that has to be easy right?) adding pretty much every ghost from The Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, with additional entries from Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Making this the largest and most complete Tobin’s Spirit Guide to date at 496 pages.
Ghostbusters Italy, tell us more. Translation* to follow after the original Italian.

**Febuary 3, 2015 Update**
Their’s been enough interest for Joe Nonostante (or someone with GB Italia) to translate their 2015 TSG to English. Should we hear more about it, we’ll write a new blog post.

I want this….
Yes, I would too as I’m sure many global ghostheads would. I said something similar on Facebook. Sony’s consumer division should take notice of Joe Nonostante’s efforts in putting together a TSG.
Although he put a lot of original work in it, IF Sony were to ever publish something like this, they’d probably do their own layout, art, etc. We know Ghostbusters is their property and they don’t have to pay Joe for anything, I did suggest it as the groundwork is already there.
Originally a surprise we are getting that “ultimate visual guide.” Its possible an official book could eventually happen. Maybe hopefully as part new Ghostbusters merchandise in the next year or so.
Yeah, with the new movie coming out hopefully it will kick start some sweet merchandise.
The visual guide I’m not so sure about. I’ve seen similar types of books with pull out cards and stickers etc. I want something a little more meaty than 160 pages. Especially if the price tag is going be $45.
True, hopefully more merchandise based on the franchise as we’ve known it, not just for example the new movie Ghostbusters figures, vehicles, (unless its a ’59 Caddy 😉 and related merchandise.
I get what you’re saying about the visual guide. Safe bet to think what will be included can be found on sites like here, Spook Central, etc. If you were to justify a purchase, Sony could have made this book already (DK Publishing has done that kind of thing with Marvel, etc) in 10 years or so, possibly costing fans more in the long run.
Each fan can decide for themselves, for me its Ghostbusters, as a life long fan I’d be surprised if we ever get a book like this again.
