IDW announced today an upcoming sequel to 2014's Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters cross over series. Members of the creative teams from both books are joining forces, much like the titular foursomes, in crafting the book.
Writing is being done by Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe) and Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
“I had such a blast working on the first crossover with Tom, and in the years since, we've talked about what we might do if we ever got a crack at a sequel,” said co-writer Erik Burnham. “When the opportunity came up, we didn't even use a single one of those plans! Instead, we grabbed villains from both universes and mixed them together to form the foundation of a fun story that furthers the ongoing stories of both the Turtles and the Ghostbusters. Even better, we get some more one-on-one scenes, allowing their complementary personalities to shine and we're beyond excited to share!”
The story will follow the heroes on the half shell as they are trapped in a ghost dimension and in need of their old ghost hunting pals to help. It turns out, when there's something strange in the multi-verse, there is still only one group to call.
Issue one is schedule to drop Wednesday, November 1, 2017 and will be released weekly by IDW.
Bonus: Playmates revealed TMNT/Ghosbusters crossover toys today at San Diego Comic-Con.
UPDATE: Official images of the toys have since been released.
