The members of the Ghostbusters team from Sony’s 2016 feature film were first introduced to IDW’s long-running Ghostbusters comic books line with Ghostbusters 101, in which they joined forces with the original Ghostbusters. Now, they are busting out into their very own comic series!
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, a five-issue comic book series, will hit shelves October 2017. The new series comes from the creative team of writer Kelly Thompson and artist Corin Howell. Howell will draw the main cover, with Elsa Charretier (Love is Love) and Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake) providing the variant covers.
In the series debut, “What Dreams May Come, Part 1!,” while on a routine house call to dispose of a simple Class III spook, Abby, Patty, Erin, and Holtzmann encounter a truly terrifying Class VII that appears to be feeding on fear. Able to create illusions that prey on their greatest fears and with designs on turning the world into its own nightmare dimension (‘natch!), our ladies may have finally met their match!
Editor Tom Waltz said of the new series:
“After the phenomenal success of teaming the 2016 Ghostbusters with the original Ghostbusters in our dimension-hopping Ghostbusters 101series, we are very excited to bring fans all new Ghostbusters: Answer the Call adventures. If Ghostbusters 101 proved anything, it’s that ‘busting feels good in any dimension, and we at IDW are honored to join Sony and Ghost Corps in continuing to expand the ever-popular Ghostbusters shared universe.”
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call #1 debuts October 2017.
