Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver are taking Bebop and Rocksteady out for another spin in the upcoming Bebop and Rocksteady Hit the Road weekly mini-series that kicks off in August.
Here is how IDW Publishing describes the series, “When a road trip back to New York City goes sideways and their powers begin to waver, Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon trouble, as only they can.”
“I feel so lucky that Ben and I have gotten to make a contribution to the TMNT universe with these B&R stories,” said Dustin Weaver in a press release from IDW. “Hit the Road is a natural continuation of what we did in Destroy Everything. It feels just as wild and fun. I kind of love these guys.”
IDW Publishing is taking a very different approach to mini-series in the coming months. First, there is the five-week Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through The Mirror, which is followed by the end of the Transformers universe in the bi-weekly Transformers: Unicron six-issue event. Now we have Bebop and Rocksteady get a five-issue weekly series in August. While this isn’t the first time a publisher has had multiple weekly series announced, it seems odd that IDW Publishing is announcing these on top of one another like this. Either IDW is set to make a major publishing initiative or a(nother) shakeup in the business structure of the company.
What are your reactions to this news? Are you ready for another Bobop and Rocksteady mini-series?
