There was a plan. A good plan. The Ghostbusters of Many Worlds would just split up and seek out the ghosts that had escaped from the containment unit in the dimensions those ghosts sought refuge in. Simple. Effective. And it should've gone off without a hitch... until something went wrong. It seemed small, but it hints at the chaotic presence of a being that Peter, Egon, Ray-and especially Winston-had hoped they'd never meet again.

2018'S Ghostbusters mega-event continues!
In Shops: Jun 27, 2018

Tiamat?

The cover at the link is actually the RI cover, but it's a fun one with four different versions of Slimer plus Lovely Slimette from GBATC.

OMG, if it is her, then I don't know what to feel.

In a new interview, Erik revealed
*Knowing the ending, Erik considered Cathulhu from RGB as the main threat of the 2018 annual and not Connla/Samhain.
*For Crossing Over, "at first the story was just going to be a mix and match of the Busters heading off to recapture ghosts who had escaped from the containment unit (and yes, Egon has a babbly explanation for why this needs to be done.)"
*Then Erik" started thinking of other ways to play with it and give it some personal stakes. I thought of two things that would give it the right heft, and how they would affect things emotionally. That revelation comes on page 20 of issue 3."

There's also some speculation on that thread about the prospect of Winston's "wammy" being reversed. I personally doubt it--I have trouble believing Sony and Ghost Corps would let them get away with such a big status quo change anymore, if they ever would have. I suspect a set up for a shocking twist that undid it was probably all the marriage of Winston and Tiyah ever was.

Still, I gotta admit...I'm looking forward to this story now more than I expected to. I still deeply suspect disappointment in the end, though.

Same here. As a collective, we can only go through so many storm-in-a-teacup storylines. And I'll freaking scream if Janine gets Tiyah-ed.

Same here, too.

It would be nice for these guys to achieve a level of personal happiness without something dire happening and I do miss Tiyah, but I seriously doubt there will be a reversal of Tiamat's 'curse' anytime soon.

This. I keep assuming nothing but the worst, despite trying not to. Gozer's proxies may have possessed Dana twice and Aibell may have killed Jenny, but Tiamat taking away Tiyah's memories of loving Winston is basically a fate worse than death (IMO, what could be more horrible than a physical death, but an emotional one?). If they're gonna reintroduce Tiamat, then I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually want Egon and Janine to NOT reach a romantic understanding or take steps to one during this arc. I'm hoping that'll be unlikely to happen, as with every other IDW-verse arc so far.

Sadly, I've got to the point where I've completely given up on the idea that it will ever happen. 

If they ever did get together or make steps towards it, then it would be beyond fantastic and I think it would definitely help to give Egon's character the kind of humanity he is lacking, but there's been way too many times where out of a possible something came absolutely nothing.

Spoiler!
Like a basic hug when the love of your life has just come back from the dead kind of nothing...
Or like being disappointed about the technicalities in which you came back from the dead instead of thinking you've got another chance to make amends/get together with the love of your life kind of nothing...
Or like making a bunch of charts, analysing behaviour and doing nothing about it kind of nothing. :lol: :D
