As revealed during their San Diego Comic Con panel, IDW Publishing will bring the worlds of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters together again in a brand new miniseries.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters 2 is a sequel to the original 2014 miniseries that had the Turtles cross dimensions to land in the Ghostbusters world. The new weekly series from writers Erik Burnham & Tom Waltz with art by Dan Schoening, Pablo Tunica, Tadd Galusha, Mark Torres, and C.P. Wilson III will take the two teams on a new inter-dimensional adventure.
“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,” Waltz said. “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.”
Our story begins when an old adversary traps the Turtles in a ghost dimension, as old adversaries are wont to do. However, all hope is not lost for our Heroes in Half-Shell, as New York City’s resident experts on all things spooky quickly answer the call.
“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,” Burnham said. “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 arrives on November 1.
