Ghostbusters: Answer The Call spinoff comic!!

Well, if they keep spilling the beans like this, the wait towards Thursday might be a little less painful after all.

I totally saw this coming a mile away.
You don't introduce the girls into canon in "GB 101", to just abandon and forget them after.
No, you introduce new characters, you're thinking spinoff.
So, this news has come out before the Comic-Con announcement, whatever that's going to be.

It has the female creative team of Kelly Thompson and Corin Howell.
The Comic-Con thing is going to have the male team that does the mainline GB book, so this ain't gonna be that announcement.
This is on top of that.
I have theories as to what that other thing's gonna be.

It's a 5 issue limited series, presumably to test the waters before an ongoing series.
Regular Ghostbusters started limited too.
Fingers crossed for this taking off.

More details at this link.

"What Dreams May Come, Part 1!" 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!

Tom Waltz says: "The story is basically there, it's going to follow on 101. They learned some lessons from the prime Ghostbusters, that's what we call them at IDW now because we have so many Ghostbusters, so the prime Ghostbusters have shown them some new ways to use their equipment. If you've been reading 101, Ray kind of scolded Holtzmann on this idea you can't just destroy the ghosts. You have to do something to them. You have to contain them or they're just going to come back and probably come back worse so they're taking those lessons and incorporating them to their world but what they're going to run into is a ghost that feeds on their nightmares and their fears and turns them around back on them. And in some ways that's going to be horrifying and maybe too much for these girls to take on we'll find out, uh Kelly promised me she though thought that she thinks everyone is going to want to see what Kevin's dreams are like. And how those are going to turn out."
