Official Press Release
IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce a new Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesMicro-Series! Hot on the heels of last year’s wildly successful Micro-Series, this new series of one-shots is taking a distinctly dark turn and concentrating on the evil deeds of the Turtles’ most nefarious villains!
The first issue rolls out this April with TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES VILLAINS MICRO-SERIES #1: KRANG, written by Joshua Williamson and illustrated by Mike Henderson with a cover by Tyler Walpole. This issue explores the tales of Dimension X’s fearsome despot – and that’s just the opening act!
The thrills continue with the tales of BAXTER STOCKMANby Erik Burnham and Andy Kuhn, OLD HOB by Jason Ciaramella and Dave Wachter, and ALOPEX by Brian Lynch and Ross Campbell.
Powered by this talented creator lineup, the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES VILLAINS MICRO-SERIES is sure to delight fans with all-new tales of classic and brand-new bad guys.
“TMNT has one of the finest rogues’ galleries in all of comics,” said TMNT Editor Bobby Curnow. “They’re deadly, charismatic, and often just plain weird! In short, they’re great fun to read and see in action on the comic book page. I’m extremely excited to see how our creative teams dig into these twisted psyches. AND they’ll set up important story points for our ongoing book!”
The TMNT universe is absolutely packed with colorful and beloved characters and IDW is very excited to be bringing more of its amazing men, women, and creatures into the hands of its many fans!
TMNT VILLAIN MICRO-SERIES #1: KRANG (FC, 32 pages, $3.99). In stores 4/17/13. Diamond Code: FEB130345
