As is usually the case, last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con involved a ton of announcements, but there's one really cool new project in the works that might've slipped under your radar: A "big box" Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles board game set for release in early 2016 featuring art by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, and a design by Kevin Wilson.
Good news for those of you who have been wondering who to call if there's an invisible man sleeping in your bed: Cryptozoic launched a Kickstarter campaign today for a Ghostbusters board game, and it looks awesome.

And if you're a fan of the IDW books -- which I am -- there's a pretty good reason to be excited: The designs for the characters were all done by comic artist Dan Schoening.
