The Ghostbusters and Transformers Team-Up To Save the World in a New Comic Book Series
Last week Hasbro revealed a new Ghostbusters / Transformers crossover action figure named ECTO-1 ECTOTRON and it is of a transforming ECTO-1. Well, it looks like there’s more than meets the eye to that reveal!
According to io9, IDW Publishing a Ghostbusters and Transformers comic book team-up series! The miniseries is being created by Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado, who is the same creative team behind the publisher’s Transformers comics.
Here’s a description of the story that it will tell:
When the Transformers pick up on a strange Cybertronian signal emanating from Earth, they travel to the planet only to discover that the threat waiting for them there is something that Venkman, Spengler, Stantz, and Zeddemore are perfectly suited to help them take on.
John Barber, IDW Editor-in-Chief had this to say in a statement:
“1984 was a seismic shift for entertainment, the year that launched both Transformers and Ghostbusters. Back then, Little John Barber was right there for Transformers and a little scared of Ghostbusters—but now, I’m a bit braver and can’t wait to see the two worlds collide.”
The comic series will consist of five-issues and will feature a variety of variant covers illustrated by Dan Schoening, Paulina Ganucheau, Nick Roche, and Alex Milne.
The crossover comic will hit stores this June.
