IDW Publishing and Nickelodeon are excited to announce the launch of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ANNUAL 2012, a 48-page jam packed story written by co-writers Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman, and drawn by co-creator Eastman. It’s been nearly 20 years since Eastman has created a full TMNT story, but fans will relish this Annual filled with non-stop downtown action and mayhem that is well worth the wait!
I don’t think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have ever had a time when there wasn’t an audience for their hijinks. So it makes sense that Nickelodeon would bring the characters back for a new series.
Take the jump for a look at the footage that premiered at the San Diego Comic Con.
Though there are a number of fans totally against Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles movie, the studios and director are moving ahead. Paramount Pictures has announced that principal photography for the movie kicks off this summer.
Nickelodeon and IDW Publishing proudly announced the launch of an all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book app exclusively for iTouch, iPad and iPhone. The app includes the complete Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic collection, including the ongoing series, “micro-series,” one-shots, and many original black and white classics on digital platforms. Additionally, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series is now available through IDW Comics and comiXology mobile apps for Android, Kindle Fire, and more.

The first-ever artwork of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – the illustration that launched one of the most successful character franchises in history – created for fun one night in late November, 1983 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird will cross the auction block as part of Heritage Auctions’ May 10-11 Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature® Auction.
So you may have heard there is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out from Michael Bay. And you may have heard that the heroes in a half-shell are no longer mutants, but rather aliens from beyond. It looked like the fervor was settling down over that announcement, until we found out TMNT isn’t going to be called TMNT at all, but simply, Ninja Turtles.
While people are still fuming over Michael Bay’s comments regarding the rebooting of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dave Rapoza’s name and work have become quite popular with his take on the turtles in a half-shell.
