Well if this doesn’t make your Friday, then I don’t know what will. IDW revealed today with the release of their January 2014 solicitations, a crossover comic event for the ages. This January, X-Files: Conspiracy #1 will begin a year-long comic series that will have the X-Files crossing over with TMNT, Ghostbusters, The Crow, and Transformers! I know some aren’t wild about crossovers, but this has to at the very least, raise an eye brow in curiosity alone.
My Thoughts? Being a huge fan of all the above mentioned franchises, I am pretty excited to enjoy a stormy Saturday afternoon in January reading an issue of Moulder and Skully investigating the sewers of NYC on the way to discovering the Turtle lair! (Source: IDW Publishing)
