There has been a LOT of comic book crossovers with properties you thought would never happen. We’ve seen Batman meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man meet Lion-O, Tarzan enter the Planet of the Apes, and so much more. But now, a previously seen crossover is happening again. The Ghostbusters are teaming up with the TMNT for a second time.
This was revealed at San Diego Comic Con. And the plot goes: “Our story begins when an old adversary traps the Turtles in a ghost dimension, as old adversaries are wont to do. However, all hope is not lost for our Heroes in Half-Shell, as New York City’s resident experts on all things spooky quickly answer the call.”
Needless to say, the team behind the comic crossover is very happy to have it happening.
“When Erik and I first broached the idea of joining the TMNT with the Ghostbusters way back when, it felt like a wonderfully impossible dream,” co-writer Tom Waltz said. “Well, that dream came true with the first volume in a big way, and now I’m absolutely ecstatic to have the opportunity to once again help bring my two favorite quartets together for another massive comic book crossover event! And, like the first go-around, the events in this story directly flow out of and affect the storylines in both ongoing series.”
“I had such a blast working on the first crossover with Tom, and in the years since, we’ve talked about what we might do if we ever got a crack at a sequel,” added co-writer Erik Burnham. “When the opportunity came up, we didn’t even use a single one of those plans! Instead, we grabbed villains from both universes and mixed them together to form the foundation of a fun story that furthers the ongoing stories of both the Turtles and the Ghostbusters. Even better, we get some more one-on-one scenes, allowing their complementary personalities to shine and we’re beyond excited to share!”
