Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Ghostbusters team to save the universe


I really do love IDW Publishing’s weird crossover events. Where else are you going to see the Transformers and G.I. JOE teaming with Danger Girl and Robots vs. Zombies? The publisher has a new crossover event set to launch featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teaming with the Ghostbusters to save the (Un)known universe.

Here’s how the company describes the series:

Transported to a different universe by a faulty invention, the TMNT find themselves in a New York City much like their own, but with one major exception: a rampant ghost problem! If that weren’t enough, the Turtles and their reluctant new hosts, the Ghostbusters, soon find that the Turtles didn’t come alone…

The series is written by Tom Waltz and Erik Burnham, with art by Dan Schoening.  It’s an interesting team-up to be sure and according to Burnham it’s a crossover that’s been in the planning stage for a couple of years.

“A couple of years ago, Tom Waltz and I chatted like the fans we are about how insanely fun this crossover would be if we ever got the chance to write it,” said series co-writer Erik Burnham. “As I sit here today, my excitement level is at eleven.”

“…being as deeply entrenched in both properties as the three of us are gives us a unique perspective on how to bring them together. And what better time to do it than during the combined 30th year anniversary celebration?, said co-writer Tom Waltz.


The four issue mini-series kicks off in October!
