Ghostbusters + Ninja Turtles team up in second crossover

Five-issue series will be released weekly starting Nov. 1.

When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles get stuck in a ghost dimension, who ya gonna call?

At Comic-Con International, IDW answered that question the only way possible — with a second Ghostbusters/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover comic, which will come out weekly for five weeks starting Nov. 1.

“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.”

Waltz and Erik Burnham will once again write the comic, joined by lead Ghostbusters artist Dan Schoening, Pablo Tunica from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe, Tadd Galusha from TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, Mark Torres from the plain ol’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and C.P. Wilson III, who worked on the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters 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,” 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!”
