Ravenous mutants from the Judge Edwina’s Strange Cases story Feed Me! from Judge Dredd: The Megazine Vol. 1 No. 7 (1991) written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Sean Phillips v Slimer from Ghostbusters (Columbia Pictures, 1984)
Slimer was not known by any particular name during the production of Ghostbusters but was referred to as “The Onionhead Ghost,” whose significant attribute was originally intended to be an incredibly foul odour rather than a voracious appetite. Frequently described in interviews as “The Ghost of John Belushi [1949–1982]” by long-time colleague Dan Aykroyd, this was due to a remark by director Ivan Reitman (who also voiced the character) that the model for Slimer reminded him of Belushi’s character John “Bluto” Blutarsky in National Lampoon’s Animal House (Universal Pictures, 1978).
