Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters
Authors:  Erik Burnham and Tom Waltz
Illustrator: Dan Schoening
Release Date: April 14, 2015

Synopsis: 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!


Review: I must admit, I am familiar with both these franchises, but I am not a superfan of either. That being said, there are probably a lot more references than I got. Although I did get quite a few great references. 

The turtles have a new invention. And when a test goes wrong, the turtles and friends end up in another dimension's NYC. This NYC is quite familiar with supernatural events, specifically ghosts. 

A TMNT villain takes the form of one of these ghosts and the turtles must team up with the Ghostbusters before they can return to their own dimension. 

This is a great team pair-up story. The "Kung Fu Martians" really shine. The pairings of certain turtles with ghostbusters is excellently done. I liked how the turtles don't believe in ghosts and the busters aren't quite sure about mutants. 

This is definitely an entertaining story. If you are a fan of these great franchises, you're enjoy this comic book. I give it a 3/5.
