IDW Publishing To Deviate Ghostbusters


IDW Publishing announced they’re deviating 5 of their bigger titles! :O At the top of the list is G.H.O.S.T.B.U.S.T.E.R.S™ ::lasers shooting around somewhere:::

The Deviations series explores the what if, a point in time where our heroes  didn’t take a path or make a choice we know them for.

From Editor In Chief Chris Ryall

Without giving too much away, what exactly is Deviations?

Deviations is, basically, a look at some of the bigger properties we publish, all of which have had many big, notable moments in their history, where we explore a divergent path in those storylines.

What led to you wanting to do this type of event?

All of the titles that make up this 5-week event have featured stories that have led to fun fan debates over what might have happened if a big event had gone another way, whether in past comics, TV series, or movies. So this is taking a big, fan-favorite moment and spinning that story in another direction to explore what could’ve been.

What series will be involved?

The series, and the catalyst for the stories, are:

Ghostbusters: “In a world… where the Ghostbusters NEVER crossed streams!”
G.I. JOE: “In a world… where COBRA turns the table on G.I. JOE.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “In a world… where Shredder leads the Turtles.”
Transformers: “In a world… where Optimus Prime never died!”
The X-Files: “In a world… where young Fox Mulder was abducted by aliens!”

Comic Vine interviewed Chris Ryall, Kelly Thompson, and Nelson Daniel about what the Ghostbusters Deviations story will be about and who will be involved. Their’s your spoiler warning.

If you were about to feel moody over no Dan Schoening artwork, hold off as Dapper Dan tweeted:


Honored 2 contribute a cover for the upcoming “Ghostbusters: Deviations.” + it to your pull list, it’s gonna be wild!

IDW Publishing’s Deviations series arrives in comic book shops and the interwebs March 2016.
