Venkthology is a gen anthology of fiction, focusing and starring Peter Venkman of Real Ghostbusters fame.

Issue 1

Venkthology 1 was published in 2015 and contains 76 pages. Veering away from hurt/comfort genres that Real Ghostbusters fandom is notorious for, the zine focuses on Peter as a cartoon character and features talent from newer authors and fan artists such as Babs, Jen Seng, and Spinner Atropos, as well as older, non h/c stories from older authors.
