'Ghostbusters' & 'Ninja Turtles' Are Crossing Over...in Comic Books

Right now Marvel is the king of crossovers with all of their standalone characters popping up in each other's movies and leading up to The Avengers films every few years. But there's another cool crossover happening this fall, though you won't catch it on the big screen. Instead, IDW Publishing has a comic book mash-up of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters. That's right, the heroes in a half-shell and New York's best paranormal investigators will meet just like The Jetsons and The Flintstones. The story will be a four-issue arc, and if you're wondering exactly how these two universes come together, just keep reading.
First up, here's your first look at the cover with both teams (via Comic Book Resources):
Here's the story: “When a new invention goes haywire, the Turtles are sent to a whole new type of New York City. One with a whole lot more ghosts… and Ghostbusters! The two teams will have to learn to get along quickly, because a new foe from the Turtles past has followed them and aims to conquer NYC!” So it keeps both universes intact without making it seem like the two groups have somehow lived in the same New York City this whole time without having heard of each other. The comic is written by Erik Burnham & Tom Waltz with artwork by Dan Schoening. It hits shelves sometime in October, so be on the lookout this fall, but don't expect this comic book to end up on the big screen. Cool?
