You probably won’t be able to answer this question, but I’ll try to ask ... Bishop is 100% dead? I mean, some dead characters are now alive and we did not see his body. And my second question is - will we find out what will happen next with the EPF? I think that many EPF employees will want to continue the Bishop business, especially now that there are many new mutants in New York. But Ravenwood could take his place and she could end the war between mutants and the EPF.
Can't answer questions about the future, sorry!

Just speculating here, but at this point I think we can safely say Bishop will be back. One way or another. Personally, I really doubt the clone thing was established just so we could briefly have two discount Slashes and give Bishop a karmic death. There are a thousand other ways he could've been disposed of. No, the clones were almost assuredly introduced for another reason. But yeah, give us friendly-ish EPF headed by Agent Ravenwood for a while.

Hi TMNT Editorial Staff,

Are there any plans for IDW to publish a two volume Archie Adventures Omnibus hardcover? What can we as fans do to help this happen?

Thank you!

Hi Bobby!

Fantastic issue - you take the pieces on and off the gaiming board as you wish in a very elegant way!

Pleas tell us - is Slash now alive (sort of), or did the second clone passed away as the first one did?

Thank you!

No plans to my knowledge. We never saw great demand for the Archie reprints we did do, so I don't know that there's going to be much incentive on that front, but I could be wrong. I'm not in the loop that well on the various TMNT reprint programs.

No clue what that is, but looks like a piece for one of our TMNT board games if I were to guess!

No, the board game pieces were not that intricate.


They're selling for 40$ on facebook, so cool! Sold out super fast.

It's nice you let people sell art based on your books. Spread the love and money around!

Looks like they're for sale, just not through IDW! A shame really.

Those above are fan-made, then? It would be nice if we got official high quality figures.

Yeah, they're fan-made; guy has also done IDW style Bebop, Rocksteady, Bludgeon and Leatherhead as well as the bay-turtles.
If these were licensed I would look to get them myself, but I'm not about contribute to someone profiting off of an IP they don't own.

It’s odd that IDW and Viacom would igore an opportunity like this.

What’s funny is, instead of busting this guy, they’ll either do nothing, or offer him a deal. He breaks the law, get’s paid.

Guess the moral of the story here, if you want to get to work on turtles, appropriate the IP, and start making dollar bills. It’s the new licensing agreement.

Meanwhile, stocks are now 1/3rd their value of 6 months ago.

I know they would definitely want some high quality figures based on the IDW comics, but it comes down to licensing agreements. Given IDW TMNT is now almost a decade old, it is kinda strange we haven't seen anything outside the board games yet. People have wanted an Old Hob figure for a long time.

We should ask that guy to make an old Hob. It would look great.
Make a Jennika figure too.

The company could be called “Toy’s from the Drome”.
Cybercubed and I will be rich.

...I've been trying to hold my tongue ever since the issue came out, but thanks to learning I'm not the only one concerned and disappointed, to say the least, about it, I can't hold it in any longer...

While I'll spare another question about the future for now, I will ask this: now that we know that Krang's insult to Leatherhead about being a slave back in #85 was a foreshadow, what made you decide to go this route with Leatherhead?

Going off the previous question, is Leatherhead merely being mind-controlled by parasitic Krang or is he actually dead in that final panel of the epilogue?

In short, at any given time in the series is about 50% planned from a few years back and 50% incorporating new ideas as things develop organically. That is to say, we have always had next couple of year's worth of story's big beats planned out, but sometimes what folks are doing in side series changes things a bit, or we just get a new idea, or see a certain character is working, and adjust things as we go. I'd say all of the major big beats are more or less the same as we intended.
Thanks Bobby!
