Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Meet the GhostbustersJuly 17, 2014
IDW Publishing isn’t done with the Ghostbusters just yet. In fact, they’re even going to pair them with some heroes in a half shell.
Shortly after the announcement that IDW would be ending their popular on-going series Ghostbusters, the studio announced that this October the boys in grey will be back and joining forces with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a 4 part mini-crossover-series.
The heroes in a half shell will be taken from their own version of New York and thrown into an alternate dimension where New York is full of ghosts rather than foot soldiers. There they will meet and team up with New York’s leading paranormal investigators and eliminators to stop a ghostly threat the Turtles brought through with them when taken from their dimension.
The story will be written by on-going Ghostbusters series writer Erik Burnham and Tom Waltz, who was Burnham’s editor on Ghostbusters. Burnham has history with the Turtles, as he is responsible for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret History of the Foot Clan. Dan Schoening will also be back to bring his signature style to the Ghostbusters crossover.
I’m incredibly excited for this crossover because it takes two of my childhood favorites and mashes them together with my favorite comic writer and artist. I will picking this up October, will you?
