Turtles... in space! Krang is set to go on trial in Dimension X but he has hired the cybernetic assassin Hakk-R to eliminate the witnesses set to testify against him. Meanwhile, the Turtles race to different planets in Dimension X to escort the witnesses to safety before Hakk-R gets to them first! Then, an enemy from Master Splinter's past is back and hungry for revenge. To get it, he'll summon the most dangerous foe that the Turtles have ever encountered--the Collectors, shape-shifting demons that can pass through dimensions at will and cannot be stopped once they have been summoned to harvest a soul. To save themselves, the Turtles team up with the Ghostbusters, the only people who have ever faced the Collectors and lived to tell the tale.

Kevin Eastman was born in 1962 in Portland, Maine, and began drawing as soon as he was able to hold a crayon. His discovery of comic books gave meaning to his crazed doodling. After finding the work of Jack Kirby, Russ Heath, Richard Corben, Vaughn Bode and John Severin, he began to hone his craft. His first published work appeared in 1980, a year before he met Peter Laird. In May 1984, he and Laird published Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, creating the hit heroes in a half-shell. Eastman co-writes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for IDW.
