Official Press Release

It's the 25th anniversary "Shell-ebration" of the fabulous phenomenon that changed comics forever! Almost single-handedly kicking off the independent comic book boom of the mid '80s, the titanic Turtles went on to become pop culture megastars with a hit animated series, a long-running line of action figures, box office-smashing feature films and of course, their very own Archie comic book series based on their TV show.

It all began with a 3-issue mini-series that adapted the first 5 episodes of the 1987 TV series. A generation of readers thrilled to the heroic exploits of the Turtles as they set out to rescue April O'Neil from the Foot Clan! The thrilling story had it all: the origins of the Turtles, Splinter, Bebop and Rocksteady; the first Archie appearances of April O'Neil, Shredder and the evil, disembodied brain Krang; plus Krang's robot army, the Neutrinos from Dimension X, and the Technodrome!

Now, this 104-page, full color graphic novel allows you to relive this milestone tale in an upscale format. Thrill to the action as the reptilian quartet uses all their "turtle power" to stop Shredder from getting a body for Krang! See April in action, holding her own against Shredder's hench-mutants! Watch Shredder's attempts to entice the Turtles to join the Foot Clan fail because "Turtles fight with honor!"
