IDW Publishing will launch a new miniseries starring the Ghostbusters team from the 2016 Ghostbusters film in October.

The female Ghostbusters team has already debuted in the comics (see "Ghostbusters New and Old Answer the Call"), but now they’re busting out in their own adventure.  The five-issue Ghostbusters: Answer the Call series is written by Kelly Thompson (Ghostbusters: Deviations, Hackeye), with art by Corin Howell (Ghostbusters: International, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).  The main cover for issue #1 is drawn by Howell, with variants by Elsa Charretier (Love is Love) and Valentina Pinto (Strawberry Shortcake).

The story begins with Abby, Patty, Erin, and Holtzmann respond to a routine call for a Class III spook, but it’s actually a Class VII which feeds on fear, and is able to warp reality by preying on the team’s greatest fears.
