Final Thoughts [2] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters II (#1-5) by Erik Burnham

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters II (#1-5) by Erik Burnham, Tom Waltz, Dan Schoening (Illustrator)
Synopsis (via Goodreads): The two beloved franchises reunite for a new adventure more action-packed and hilarious than ever! The Turtles are stuck in a ghost dimension by an old adversary and only the Ghostbusters can save them. The ensuing adventure will be an inter-dimensional romp like never seen before!

I've always enjoyed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I don't think their comics are for me. I did enjoy this arc, and I loved how much longer the story felt, but I think I prefer their shows and movies. (Although, not the recent movies... they're a little too weird for me. I think I'm a classic TMNT fan!)

I did like the Turtle-Ghostbusters mashup! It was interesting to see how the two interacted with each other, since they're not from the same time or whatever. (All of the space travel, parallel universes, alternate realities--it's incredibly confusing.) I also like how some of the artists tried to make the Ghostbusters look like their movie characters. The one is definitely Bill Murray.

If you really like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I think you'd love their comic! I didn't feel invested in the characters, but that's me. I like the Turtles, but I also like adopting new pets. It doesn't mean I need them. I already have plenty of pets to give my love and attention to, just like I have plenty of other comics I'm already reading and really enjoying.

My husband and son love to do Turtle stuff together, so I think I'll leave this one to them!

    1. They knew each other, so I don't think it's the first time they've gotten together! You could probably find more than one arc with both teams.
