NEW AND OLD GHOSTBUSTERS COLLIDE IN MARCH WITH NEW COMIC
I friggin' love the Ghostbusters and IDW Publishing's line of comics has been nothing but stellar for the past few years. Although I have a deep love for the franchise, I have not yet seen the new film released earlier this year. I just haven't gotten around to it. I'm busy, OK? I was a little disappointed to learn that the movie was a complete reboot with no reference to the classic 1984 film or the original team. IDW is changing that in March as the two universes merge and both teams get together in Ghostbusters 101, helmed by Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado, the same creative team that's been working on the Ghostbusters comics for the past five years. Here's the write-up from the publisher:
Shortly after the classic Ghostbusters decide to get back to their roots of teaching the next generation of ‘busters, an inter-dimensional mishap merges together their universe with that of the new crew of paranormal police. Now, with the fate of two dimensions in the balance (maybe more?!), can these distinctly different teams come together to repel the greatest supernatural challenge any of them have ever faced? They’re going to have to find a way if there’s any hope for survival. Prepare for mass hysteria of the dogs and cats living together variety, because this time everyone… ANSWERS THE CALL!
"I’ve always wanted to meld the two worlds,” said Ivan Reitman, Co-founder, Ghost Corps. “It would be great fun to see them all together for the first time and I think it’s important for the future that we bring it back into a single universe.”
“When we found out Sony and Ghost Corps were ready to let IDW play in the Ghostbusters: Answer the Call sandbox, we were beyond ecstatic,” said series editor Tom Waltz. “Abby, Erin, Patty, and Holtzmann are such fun characters, and to be able to have them join forces with the original ‘busting crew (as well as our expansive roster of fan-favorite supporting characters) is a wonderful creative opportunity for all involved. And in the undeniably capable hands of Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Delgado, I’m confident it will prove to be a proton blast of epic proportions -- for both old and new fans of this sensational franchise.”
Ghostbusters 101 begins in March 2017. It will feature variant covers by Erica Henderson and Tim Lattie. The main covers by Schoening and Delgado will be six piece inter-connected image featuring the full cast of characters.
