From Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado, Ghostbusters 101 sees the original movie Ghostbusters travel to an alternate dimension to meet up with the new movie Ghostbusters and deal with a Secret Wars-style incursion event. And, well, bust some ghosts.
On the big screen, we’re never going to see the classic Ghostbusters team partner up with the crew from the latest movie. But anything can happen in comics, so the Avengers moment of the Ghostbusters world is taking place in a new miniseries starting next March.
Revealed as part of IDW’s latest list of solicitations, Ghostbusters 101—by Erik Burnham with art from Dan Schoening—will see the original team head back to their academic careers... only for their first batch of students to rip a hole in space and time into the universe occupied by the “Answer the Call” Ghostbusting team. Naturally, hijinks of the supernatural sort will occur from there, necessitating that Egon, Ray, Winston, and Venkman team up with Holtzmann, Erin, Patty, and Abby.
It’ll be the first time IDW has gotten their hands on the characters of the new movie after years of series based on the classic team. Only time will tell if it could lead to the new crew getting a comic of their own, but for now, it’s cool to have them palling around with the original team, an adventure we’re unlikely to ever get on the big screen. Ghostbusters 101 #1 is set to hit shelves on March 22, 2017.
