Though the Halloween season is officially over, the Ghostbusters comic book franchise is imbued with life everlasting, and IDW just announced plans for its monstrous, 48-page celebratory Ghostbusters Annual coming in February of 2018.
Written by Eric Burnham, with art by Dan Schoening, this spirited volume serves as a weird warm-up to IDW's ambitious Ghostbusters event for the new year titled “Crossing Over,” which sees every single iteration of the Ghostbusters universe mashing into one epic storyline.
The gregarious gathering of paranormal proportions includes the OG ‘busters, Extreme Ghostbusters, The Real Ghostbusters, and even the new “Answer the Call” all-women squad from the 2016 feature film. IDW editor Tom Waltz described their massive Ghostbusters Annual as a “Crisis of Infinite Ghostbusters” event.
Here's the official solicitation synopsis:
When urban miners discover what appears to be a centuries-old, man-made chamber 600 feet below the streets of New York City, they unwittingly unleash an unnamed entity with designs on dominance... an entity that will soon answer to the name SAMHAIN. Join the original Ghostbusters in this double-sized annual that will also sow the seeds for Crossing Over!
