Ghostbusters: IDW 20/20 is a one-shot issue by IDW Publishing spotlighting the team originally from the Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime video game and later established as the Ghostbusters of Dimension 50-S.

PlotEdit

Twenty years in the future, and a new generation of Ghostbusters... is sent on all the jobs Ray, Winston, Peter, and Egon just don't feel like taking on themselves. The Sanctum of Slime Ghostbusters—Bridget, Samuel, Gabriel, and Alan—have proven themselves many times over... first against the demon Dumazu, and later with the Ghostbusters of many other dimensions in the recent Crossing Over event. Now they're ready for an easy gig, something like a simple haunted house. But they better be careful... you never know Wat could happen.[2]
