In an exclusive to the LA Times, IDW Publishing announced a new Ghostbusters comic, this time featuring the team from the 2016 Paul Feig-directed film.

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call will be a five-issue mini-series written by Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye) and drawn by artist Corin Howell (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).  In keeping with the theme of a female-centric team, cover artists include Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake), Emma Vieceli (Manga Shakespeare, Adventures of Supergirl), and Elsa Charretier (Love Is Love).

In an email to the Times, Thompson stated, “I’m so excited to get to bring this first solo adventure for the ladies of ‘Ghostbusters’ to the world of comics. Expect lots of supernatural hijinx and ‘save the world’ shenanigans.”

Howell is also enthusiastic, “I just remembered I get to draw Kevin, I’m so excited!”

The first issue is slated to come out this October.
