THE GHOSTBUSTERS MEET THE NINJA TURTLES AGAIN!
In 2014, I thought all of my dreams had come true when IDW Publishing released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Ghostbusters. My two favorite childhood franchises coming together in one comic was nothing short of incredible. It helped that the book was pretty friggin' great. This November, IDW gets ready to do it again and yes, I'm just as excited.
This time around, an old adversary traps the Turtles in a ghost dimension. Fortunately, New York City's resident paranormal specialists are ready to answer the call. Erik Burnham and Tom Waltz will be writing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Ghostbusters 2. Dan Schoening is handling art, joined by Pablo Tuncia, Tadd Galusha, Mark Torres, and C.P. Wilson III.
“When Erik and I first broached the idea of joining the TMNT with the Ghostbusters way back when, it felt like a wonderfully impossible dream,” said co-writer Tom Waltz. “Well, that dream came true with the first volume in a big way, and now I’m absolutely ecstatic to have the opportunity to once again help bring my two favorite quartets together for another massive comic book crossover event! And, like the first go-around, the events in this story directly flow out of and affect the storylines in both ongoing series.”
“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!”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Ghostbusters 2 #1 is set for release on November 1st, 2017. That date cannot come soon enough.
