This is the best news I've heard since rejoining the TMNT community.

If we support this, we can only increase our chances of IDW doing the same for Volume 4 and Archie later down the road...

I'm really curious to see how the official conclusion differs from the almost-official conclusion Andrew put together. And also whether or not Gary and Frank care about dovetailing into Volume 4 or just go out with a bang doing their own thing!

Also, wouldn't it be great if IDW released this bimonthly? 2 issues a month, so we can get through this in one year instead of two?

I love this idea. You see DC and Marvel finding great success with this format lately. Might be a fun experiment for IDW to do it, and with a series thatís basically already produced.

Though if "Urban Legends" is successful, completing long lost stories like that may be a go to.
Yeah. I don't know what's a good justification. I've bought every volume of the Archie trade for two reasons: it's Archie TMNT so I need it, and to support it with my $. But I imagine there are many who don't care for the trades (already have the single issues, don't like the format, etc) but would gladly throw their money at a new story.
Ah well, we shall wait and see, as we have for decades

This would be nice, as long as they aren't doing variant covers for every issue that comes out... blanks and Eastman covers and whatnot... just reprint them as they were, start to finish and then do the three new issues and done. Then trade collect it for those fans...

Then move to volume 4...

The problem with a Vol. 4 conclusion is PL just can't be bothered or motivated to finish it. He's the only writer of that series, nobody else can finish the series but him. He could have published new Vol. 4 issues through Mirage from 2010 till now...and in 8 years he chose not to.

If IDW came to him and said "we want to reprint Volume 4 and finish it... all you have to do is write it or even just tell Lawson and/or Eastman where the story goes", Laird COULD conceivably agree.

It's still a long shot. But I firmly believe we are now the closest we've ever been to a Volume 4 conclusion since Laird put #32 up on his site.

I think this means even less to a Vol. 4 conclusion than it does to seeing "The Forever War." Bobby has said they won't touch it without his involvement and he hasn't shown any interest in years.

Now, would this news about "Urban Legends" motivate Peter to do more vol. 4, make him even less interested in doing more vol. 4, or not even be on his radar? I have no idea.

Not a super fan of the name "Urban Legends," for the record. Maybe it's harmless but it could be construed as "these are just tales, not canonical."

Urban Legends is a name I'm fine with, aside from simply calling it "Volume 3," it's a name where fans can decide if they want it to be canon with the rest of Mirage or not. It bridges the gap fine, and assuming the last 3 issues don't do anything too crazy or contradictory with the start of Vol. 4, then it'll be ok.

Now if the finale shows us Leonardo stab Karai in the heart and die, then I guess these can't be canon.

Yeah I'd really hate it if they cemented this as an elseworlds thing when it was never intended to be that.

If it were going to continue indefinitely as its own thing, maybe... but otherwise, I like that you can choose whether or not it can be worked into Mirage.

On paper it's the fairest way to go. Let fans decide if it's canonical or not, not stepping on Peter's toes in definitively saying it is but not definitively saying it isn't either.

Wow. I had to spend a good 5 minutes determining today wasn't the 1st of April, Andrew. The title including the term "Urban Legends" didn't help much either...

This is such awesome news! IDW is really making miracles happen lately. Trying to decide if I should wait to buy the last 3 issues & TPB or go all-in just to support more projects like this happening in the future. (Of course I finally completed collecting the original run just a couple months ago.) Kind of bummed it will be in color which won't match the rest but that's what sells I suppose. Still so hyped about this though, seems to bode well for the brand on so many levels!

I suppose Lady Shredder will be Karai then, and not Tang Shen's sister because Gary and co. know Andrew did that and Karai was the original plan.

I hope they can reconcile it that Karai still makes peace with the Turtles again. All I want is that, the Turtles getting healed (Raph and Don should be the easiest, I don't know how they can explain Leo regain a lost hand), and besides some minor stuff about wherever Leatherhead was teleported to on the transmat, I don't remember any other loose ends.

The "big" kicker is who Pimiko will be. I did go against the notes there. To serve the greater narrative (what Gary couldn't know would be written many years later in Tales V2, I mean), I thought. No idea if that's still the case and wouldn't say if I knew.

Been waiting for this announcement for years since the original run is so expensive. So stoked, love the image run.

Does that mean those of us who grew up with Archie's TMNT Adventures will get Forever War to conclude its run?

That depends on Murphy. The Archie trades IDW put out are near the end of the series, CyberTurtles is coming out. All they have left to collect is the Ninjara moon-eyes 4-parter, the Turtle toddler Turtles, and Year of the Turtle.

"More dramatic" or "less dramatic" Pimiko identity?

I'm drooling at the thought of having this is omnibus form. It seems that IDW collect most of the TMNT runs in hardcover, but I haven't seen any for TMNT Adventure, though it's possible they are waiting to finish the tpb`s.

Well, it's better than what IDW retroactively named their reprints of the Devil's Due GI Joe series once they started their own continuation of the Marvel run. "GI Joe: Disavowed".
