IDW’s TMNT universe rolls on, into the property’s 40th anniversary year

Publisher IDW has revealed that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be staying put, with more comics and graphic novels to come.

Now entering into their fourth decade, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are several years deep into their latest reboot, this time with IDW. The independent comic book publisher has somehow created a pretty unique Turtles U too, with a fresh mythology that’s worked to meld together some of the most popular elements from across the brand’s forty year run.

And that’s just with the ongoing, as there’s also the little spinoff called The Last Ronin to talk about. That’s taken on a life of its own, bringing creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s original ‘final’ vision of the TMNT to glorious life, after sitting unused for decades.

But with a few big names recently taking their leave of the company, fans might’ve been wondering if this big time run was about to come to a crashing close. Well if you were in with that lot, consider your worries history, because the mean green ninja teens aren’t going anywhere.

IDW has revealed that it’s signed a new deal with Paramount (owner of the IP), for plenty more Turtles comics. In fact, the line is set to grow a bit, with what the publisher is saying will be “multiple new comic book titles featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.

”We are delighted to continue our relationship with IDW Publishing for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES comics and graphic novels,” said Lourdes Arocho, SVP, Licensing & Publishing, Consumer Products, Paramount. “After 40 years, there are still so many more stories to be told, and we can’t wait for everyone to see what’s next.”

“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are iconic. They are part of the tapestry of comic book history and I’m honored to be publishing their continuing adventures during this milestone year,” stated IDW Co-Publisher Mark Doyle. “Our Editor-in-Chief Jamie S. Rich and the Editorial team have put together an incredible publishing plan that will thrill long-time fans, excite new readers and show why the Turtles stand shoulder to shoulder with the biggest heroes in comic shops all over the world. It’s a great time to be a fan of TMNT!”
