The X-Files To Cross Over With Ghostbusters, The Crow, Ninja Turtles, Transformers


IDW has a hit on its hands with The X-Files Season Ten by Joe Harris and Michael Walsh and, as the comics industry is wont to do when there's a success, they hope to expand it across their publishing line.

In that spirit, the characters of The X-Files will cross over with some of IDW's most valuable licensed properties--Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Crow, Transformers and Ghostbusters.

IDW's solicitations for January product includes The X-Files: Conspiracy, featuring the not-as-dead-as-you-thought supporting character The Lone Gunmen as they track down a number of bizarre occurrences including reports of talking, mutant turtles in the New York sewers, automobiles that transform into sentient robots and the other oddities you would expect from this particular group of characters.
