Good call.

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.


Hey you're right they don't specify who's ally it is. Great call. ;).

Of the issues that I have managed to get my hands on the first reference to the first crossover was in TMNT # 41 Donatello is working on the Transdimensional portal and he tells Harold something like. "Make sure the portal is calebrated properly this time Harold, don't forget what happened with those Ghost Guys."

The other reference was in issue TMNT # 72. That is when the immortals mention Chi Yu a few times. First they mention his abscense for the past 500 years. The Rat King mentions that Kensu was the last one to see him before he disappeared. The immortals do a role call and Chi Yu is mentioned again. I am paraphrasing again here and I am sorry, but they describe Chi YU as a fearce warrior and unstoppable. The Rat King makes a snide comment that since Chi Yu has been gone for 500 years the "unstoppable" part may be debatable. :) :) :). Those are the ones that I have personally found, but I am sure there could be many more references to the event because there is not just the 72 issues but the Spin Off Titles as well. Here is a chronology chart, but I don't think I am going to be able to catch up completely to see if the event was referenced in those titles. :) :) :)

Thanks. Okay. 41, 71, and 72. Funny in #71, Kitsune lied about her encounter with him in TMNT/GB #1 and one panel depicts said encounter in the issue. I also discovered Chi-You comes up in TMNT Universe #13 - which happened to be written by Erik Burnham. Karai is told a legend that reveals Chi-You talked to Kublai Khan for 3 days and influenced him to invade Japan in 1274.

Thank you very much now I need to check out TMNT Universe # 13. It is funny I love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I was aware of the IDW comic, but never picked it up. When it was announced that the Turtles and Ghostbusters were going to crossover I just had to catch up with the Turtles world. I was lucky by that time there were only 40 issues and a couple of issues of Micro Series. So I grabbed as many of the Trades as I could and got caught up. I am so glad that they crossed over because it was my gateway into the Turtles comics. I love how both the Ghostbusters and the Ninja Turtles keep referencing the first event. It just makes the whole multiverse feel that much bigger. It is like one big playground and I can't wait to see what other events IDW may have up their sleeves. :) :) :)
