Discuss the Ghostbusters Comic from IDW, as well as the now defunct Ghostbusters: Legion series.

Just watched a You Tube video about the TMNT/ Ghostbusters action figures, defiantly going to pick those up along the new comic when it arrives in November. I had a ball with the pervious crossover between The Ghostbusters and TMNT, so I have a strong feeling that I will enjoy this one just as much.

Chi-You is repeatedly referenced in the TMNT ongoing, so I think is nice they've kept the continuity alive since the crossover.

Cool. In addition to the ATC crew getting their own comic mini-series, it looks like we're getting some more GB/TMNT action. Can't wait. I still need to catch up on the first GB/TMNT mini-series when I get the chance. :)

Always good to pull out a big seller to keep the main series afloat, he said, cynically...

...Ah, that's just good business sense! I loved the last one, and it has been canonically crucial to everything that has come since, so I'm really excited to see what they do this time out!

Burnham confirmed it is a weekly series and it is five issues total (Nov. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29).

Hmm, looking at that still of the blue ghost - that could be Darius Dun. He was boss of a hi-tech gang called the Street Phantoms.

So Dan Schoening won't be the artist for all five issues due to the weekly nature of the comic.

Was there an announcement of a true Volume 4? a new series that the main IDW creative crew (Burnham, Waltz, Schoening, Delgado) will head like before?

No, not yet. I think the focus was this comic and the ATC one in terms of announcements. But I haven't seen a full summary article online yet.

Plus, there's no way in hell Dan and Luis can logistically do a weekly 5 issue series. They're crazy, but not that crazy. :P

Amazon already has the TPB up for preorder March 27, 2018 (so the regular date is March 14) but it spoils some more of the overall story:
An enemy from Master Splinter's past is back and hungry for revenge. To get it, he'll summon the most dangerous foe that the Turtles have ever encountered-the Collectors, shape-shifting demons that can pass through dimensions at will and cannot be stopped once they have been summoned to harvest a soul. To save themselves from the clutches of the Collectors, the Turtles team up with the Ghostbusters, the only people who have ever faced them and lived to tell the tale, in a battle that turns into a chase across dimensions both incredible and terrifying.

Was wondering if we'd ever see a follow-up on those entities. :D

"a chase across dimensions both incredible and terrifying"
Intriguing...wonder if we'll get multiple incarnations of the TMNT + GB as in 80s cartoon turtles, real ghostbusters, answer the call team and maybe even Mirage turtles?

The first hint are those silhouettes on the Schoening-Delgado cover they revealed. Does it match up?



At first I wasn't sure, but there are DEFINITELY some similar cues here. The tongue on one, the weird eye thing on another, and just a HINT of the horns and spines on the other two...

Oh My God!!!! I was pretty excited before for this crossover, but again they are continuing to blow me away!! The Ghost of the leader of the Street Phantoms from TMNT conjuring up the collectors to attack the Ninja Turtles. Ghostbusters being called in to help defeat an enemy that they themselves barely escaped from. To Top it off a Chase through dimensions. I honest to god thought that after the Ghostbusters met the Devil in International The Ghostbusters Had seen everything. :) :) :)

It was a follow up series to the 4kids TMNT show (my absolute favorite show next to the current Nickelodeon show), but hoooooboy, was it dumb. You aren't missing anything if you never watch it (do watch the 4kids cartoon that came before it though. 5 seasons of pretty fantastic story telling)

I just realized the cover released is loosely based on the main movie poster for TMNT II: Secret of the Ooze
*The posing of the huddled around something
*The ordering of the Turtles - Don, Ralph, Leo, Mike
*The Turtles looking into the Trap (in the poster, they were looking into a TGRI canister)
*The new villains in silhouette looking sideways at the top of the page

Holy Cow!!!! Okay this is going to be a pretty exciting adventure. Looks like each Turtle will be partnered with a Ghostbuster. In Mikey and Peter's adventure I am wondering if the Turtle Ghostbusters will resemble those upcoming Playmates Toys. I knew this was going to be fun. :) :) :)

Hm. Somehow they were able to split up and go to different dimensions. I wonder if that Egon and Ray figured out how to miniaturize the Interspatial Teleportation Unit akin to Mr. Aykroyd's old idea from his Ghost Smashers, the Inter-Dimensional Interceptor, and/or Dan drew it based something like those watches in "Egon's Ghost". Or for that matter how to the TMNT contact the GB for help in the first place?

#1 - The Kevin Eastman cover sounds like a $50 cover. lol.

#2 - I agree, seems there was more to the Turtle Ghostbusters toys announcement. So I guess that means humans live in the sewers? :P

#3 - Punk Frogs? Battletoads? lol.

#4 - So turtle Ghostbusters to frogs to viking ghosts. heh heh.

#5 - A long lost ally? Hmmm.

I'm still a little apprehensive about another crossover and another multiverse story but with more information, I'm sure my mind will budge a little. The weekly thing still makes me cringe.

I was curious about how they get a message to the Ghostbusters too. The only thing I can think is Casey and April witness the Collectors capture the Turtles and they're the ones that enlist the Ghostbusters help. ;). I have been trying to catch up with the events of the Turtles comics in preparation for this crossover so I have no idea what Ally they may be referring too. By hey have made a lot of friends in these 70 plus issues. I am happy to find out that the events of the first crossover have been referenced a few times. In the Turtles comic The Immortals were having a banquet that they have every 500 years. They mention the absence of Chi Yu. I can't wait for that Ghost Trap with him in it to possibly make it's way back to the Turtles universe. :) :) :)

I'm glad someone's doing that. heh. Please feel free to list the issues the first crossover is referenced.

As for the long lost ally - I couldn't but wonder if something happens to Jenny in 101 #6. Or maybe Ray's Spirit Guide turns on them. He certainly would like what's happened with the multiverse after the warnings he gave as far back as Volume 1 of the ongoing series.
