We got to see a dream team-up in comics form when the original all-male Ghostbusters team crossed paths (but not streams!) with the new female Ghostbusters in IDW’s Ghostbusters 101. Now, our favorite ghostbusting ladies are the stars of their own limited series!

Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms) and artist Corin Howell are delivering a five-issue limited series starring the new crew of Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan and Gilbert called Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. According to CBR.com, the series “will pit the titular ‘busters against a “truly terrifying Class VII” ghost that feeds on mankind’s greatest fears.”

IDW editor Tom Waltz expressed the publisher’s excitement in continuing to work with the Ghostbusters franchise. “After the phenomenal success of teaming the 2016 Ghostbusters with the original Ghostbusters in our dimension-hopping Ghostbusters 101 series,” he says. “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.”

Thompson is kicking ass and taking names all over the comics world, so I’m thrilled that she’s the one that gets to dig into this franchise. Meanwhile both Corin Howell as well as the artists on variant covers, Elsa Charretier (Love is Love) and Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake) are an awesome team of artists that will do the spirit of the new Ghostbusters team justice.

Sadly, we’ll have to wait a couple of months to get our grubby little hands on this title. It drops in October 2017. So if you want to ensure that you can get a copy, make sure your local comics shop knows you want it!
