Fire up your proton pack! Our favorite ghostbusting team is busting out into their very own comic book series in Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, a five-issue series due out next month.
After making their big screen debut last year, Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan, and Gilbert were introduced in IDW publishing’s long-running Ghostbusters comic books line with Ghostbusters 101, in which they joined forces with the original Ghostbusters for an “inter-dimensional crossover adventure”. Their issue sold out upon release, and now the proton pack-wielding women are back.
According to a press release issued at Comic Con in July, “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!”
Fans in need of a healthy dose of ectoplasm can look for Ghostbusters: Answer the Call #1 in stores October 2017. Corin Howell will draw the main cover, with Elsa Charretier (Love is Love) and Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake) providing the variant covers.
