This looks great! Who else is excited about the new TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN? The new miniseries will be set in 2040, the run will be 5 issues published by IDW, with Kevin Eastman writing along with Tom Waltz and Andy Kuhn inking.
The series is described by Eastman as:
“a heartfelt love poem to all the TMNT universes of the past [that] offers up an intense look at one possible future — firmly based on and adapted from an original 33-year-old idea, from the original creators.”
Thanks to THR we can learn more about the new comic book:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin is a five issue comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing, by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman with co-writer Tom Waltz and inker Andy Kuhn, taking the characters two decades into a future first imagined by Eastman and co-creator Peter Laird for a storyline that never saw the light of day.
“About 10 years ago, I re-discovered a 20-page outline for a TMNT story that Peter and I wrote together back in 1987….The story was set 30 years in the future, which, as written then, was set in 2017. Reading through it again, I drifted back to a very different time in TMNT history — back when it was all about the comics, mostly just Peter and I writing and drawing the issues, pre-everything the world would soon come to know about these characters that we’d created and called the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Tom Waltz said:
“When Kevin first showed me the outline that he and Peter had created back in the ’80s, I was gobsmacked…Beyond Peter Laird’s eerily prescient technological and sociological predictions, the story idea itself was exciting and versatile, designed in a way that it could be easily modified to fit into the many different TMNT iterations that have existed over the years, without losing any of the core elements injected into it by both Kevin and Peter.”
