IDW Publishing has announced it is doing another multi-property crossover that explores alternate timelines that will kick off in March.
Imagine a world where Shredder is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sensei – it’s gonna happen in IDW Publishing’s Deviations.
Starting with the Ghostbusters, readers will be taken to alternate realities of some of the most iconic heroes in comics with weekly one-shots that each highlight a different series. G.I. JOE will follow in the second week, exploring what would happen if COBRA finally won. The TRANSFORMERS comes next, looking at what the implications would be if OPTIMUS PRIME never died! Then, in X-Files Deviations, having been abducted by aliens, Fox Mulder never returned… and finally, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles one-shot will round out the event.
Here is the rundown of books and creators that will take part in this weekly event:
- In Ghostbusters Deviations, Kelly Thompson(Jem and the Holograms) teams up with artist Nelson Daniel (Judge Dredd).
- Paul Allor returns to G.I. Joe, with artwork by Corey Lewis (Sharknife).
- TRANSFORMERS Deviations welcomes Brandon Easton (Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven) alongside Transformers: Robots in Disguise artist Priscilla Tramontano.
- Amy Chu (Sensation Comics: Wonder Woman) explores The X-Files alongside Elena Casagrande (Doctor Who) and Silvia Califano (The X-Files: Season 10) on art.
- Finally Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) leads Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder) into the sewers for the TMNT Deviations.
The last couple of crossovers IDW Publishing has released have been a lot of fun, so I expect Deviations will be a good one too.
