Would TMNT novels be a good idea?

Since there are novels based on Startrek and Starwars, franchises most people see as a TV series respective films, do you think it would be a good idea to have novels based on TMNT?, a franchise most see as comics, animation and films.

With novels, I mean independent stories in novel-form, not novelized films (that has already happened) or a a short children's storybook with just a few pages, which often already is mainly an episode adaption. Also, of course, I don't mean fanfiction.

I think it could work as long as the stories are good and are not like tmnt stories we've seen before.

Untapped story potential.
There could be a couple of series, based on storylines from the various other versions continued in novel format. Spectacular idea.

I guess such stories should explore more about the characters and locations.

This could be a great Idea, if done properly. We already have children's storybooks, so this idea could be pushed towards the teen/adult fan. Many fans of such things would say to base it on Mirage or IDW, but I think the best thing to do would be to give an interested author access to the Mirage, Archie, and IDW universe comics, set a few basic parameters, then give them creative freedom to craft their own tale.

As long as it doesn't require using specific incarnations, I'd say the novels would be fun to do depending on the direction taken.
