IDW Announces Ghostbusters “Answer the Call” Miniseries

IDW announced today that it’s following up its six-issue Ghostbusters 101 miniseries, which featured the four new Ghosbusters introduced in the 2016 Answer the Call film, with a new five-issue mini that focuses solely on the female quartet. The book is also female-led, with a story by Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Ghostbusters Deviations) and art by TRANSFORMERS alum Corin Howell (Windblade vol. 2). More information after the jump.

The series is slated to begin in October 2017. IDW’s well-regarded Ghostbusters series kicked off in 2012 and has pulled in characters from the whole spectrum of Ghostbusters sagas, ranging from the original film to the various cartoon incarnations.
The new Ghostbusters first joined forces with the originals in the most recent miniseries, Ghostbusters 101, but this new adventure will belong entirely to the 2016 crew.

In the exciting 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!

Cover art for issue No. 1 will be provided by Corin Howell, with variants by Elsa Charretier and Valentina Pinto.
