Most people are familiar with the Ghostbusters. You either saw the original movies, watched the cartoons, read the comics, watched the new movie, or any combination of the aforementioned. No matter how you were introduced to the Ghostbusters you usually were a fan. There has always been debate as to which version of the Ghostbusters is best. Now thanks to IDW Publishing we get to see them ALL in the same comic book series!
According to the publisher, every single Ghostbuster that has ever appeared will appear in the upcoming eight-issue IDW crossover series Ghostbusters: Crossing Over. The Ghostbusters: Crossing Over creative team consists of Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado. These guys have a long history with the Ghostbusters franchise.
The story begins when the Ghostbusters lose control of an inter-dimensional portal. This is the portal that allowed them to communicate with spirits and Ghostbusters in alternate dimensions. It will take the concerted effort of all the Ghostbusters in order to contain the breach.
“This story has something for everyone who has ever loved an iteration of the Ghostbusters,” Burnham said in a press release. “The Prime team from the original movies? There. The Real Ghostbusters? Present. The Extreme team? Accounted for. Not to mention the characters from the video games, the 2016 movie, and the originals we’ve created for the comics! If you don’t like one character, don’t worry, we have others! BUNCHES of others.”
“The biggest challenges from an artistic perspective is emulating the styles of the Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, Sanctum of Slime, and any other teams that may pop up,” Schoening said. “Not only do we want to honor the distinct look of the characters, but also the backgrounds and ghouls. Luckily and gratefully, we have already had a chance to play with many of those characters in previous books.”
Ghostbusters: Crossing Over #1 will be on the shelves in March 2018.
