Ghost Whisperer panel unveils new game, comic - Comic-Con Report

Jennifer Love Hewitt plays the Ghost Whisperer and appeared at Comic-Con.When I looked at the panel schedule for Comic-Con International, I asked myself, "What's Ghost Whisperer doing on there? Really? Ghost Whisperer?"

I have nothing against the show, and I guess it has supernatural elements that put it in enough of a genre category to qualify for Comic-Con treatment. But I thought it was just an uber-sensitive, feminine product.

Then again, when you consider how Twilight dominated this convention, "chick stuff" ruled the day. There's no reason why Ghost Whisperer can't have its moment, too.

So, creators took the chance to announce two product tie-ins coming for Whisperer fans.

First, a Ghost Whisperer video game is in the works. Entitled Ghost Whisperer: Shadowlands, the game will have players become Jennifer Love Hewitt's character, Melinda Gordon. I think it's safe to assume you'll prettily and petitely glide about whispering to ghosts and solving their problems. It's not something I'm likely to give up EA Sports' College Football for, but to each her own.

Also, Hewitt is teaming up with IDW Publishing to release her own comic -- The Music Box. It's not strictly Ghost Whisperer-based, but it's Hewitt's baby. The 10-issue anthology series details a music box that causes strange occurrences for the people who possess it.

The Music Box hits stands in November.
