David Booher, Blue Delliquanti, Mildred Louis and Jimmy Betancourt bring the ghostbustin’ back to NYC next year.
The Ghostbusters team introduced in Ghostbusters: Afterlife will head back to where it all began in Ghostbusters: Back in Town.
Callie, Gary and company head to New York City in the new miniseries from Dark Horse Comics, as told by the stellar team of writer David Booher, artist Blue Delliquanti, colorist Mildred Louis and letterer Jimmy Betancourt of Comicraft. The miniseries also served as a prelude to Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, which arrives in theaters next year.
“Our friends at Dark Horse have picked up the Spengler family and hand delivered them to Manhattan where they will begin their journey back into Ghostbusting,” said Jason Reitman, director of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. “It has been a personal thrill to collaborate with this incredible group of artists and storytellers on new chapters in the proton jungle.”

Ghostbusters, My Little Pony, Star Trek and more head back to the future (or the past) in January.
At this week’s New York Comic Con, IDW announced IDW 20/20 — five one-shots featuring some of their licensed properties that will celebrate the publisher’s 20-year history.
Featuring Ghostbusters, Jem and the Holograms, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek and My Little Pony, each story will be set either 20 years in the past or 20 years in the future.
“An anniversary like the one IDW is celebrating is a cause to look to the future and the past,” said IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber. “It gives us a moment to reflect on where came from and where we’re going, because both directions are pretty exciting. We’re lucky to have partners like Hasbro, Nickelodeon, CBS Consumer Products, and Sony to share in the celebration — and to have these five sets of characters that have helped place IDW at the center of the pop culture universe!”
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.”
