This summer, the Ghostbusters and the Transformers are joining forces in a new comic book crossover from IDW. Transformers/Ghostbusters will run for five issues, and introduce a supernatural threat that will unite the Autobots with Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore. However, IDW’s first look at Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 suggests that the villains are making an alliance of their own.
Via Newsarama, Megatron and his Decepticons are visiting a place that should look very familiar to Ghostbusters fans. It’s one of the buildings designed by Ivo Shandor as a gateway to Gozar The Gozerian. Note that Gozar and his followers, Zuul and Vinz Clortho, appear as humanoid Transformers. On the last page, Gozar assumes a form chosen by Starscream. Instead of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Gozar becomes King Starscream, a giant robot with the severed heads of his enemies around his neck.
Longtime Ghostbusters comic scribe Erik Burnham is writing the five issue crossover, which will feature art by Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado. Hasbro is also making an Ecto-1 Transformer toy that changes into an Autobot named Ectotron. Additionally, Ectotron will play a big role in the miniseries, and he’s also featured on one of the covers for the first issue.
Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 will hit comic book stores in June. However, you can see the preview pages below.
