Rise of the TMNT comic to debut earlier than the tv series

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles @TMNT Comic to Debut @IDWPublishing in Advance of TV Series

Nickelodeon’s upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series has drawn a vocal response from fans, who have been both intrigued and skeptical about the radically redesigned versions of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s Heroes in a Half-Shell.

While the show won’t debut until September, the latest iteration of the pop culture mainstays will first debut in comic book form, and CBR has details of the project, first announced this past weekend at C2E2 in Chicago. The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #0 one-shot is scheduled for release in July, from current TMNT license-holder IDW Publishing. It’s written by Matthew K. Manning, who wrote 2016’s Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures miniseries, and illustrated by Chad Tomas, a veteran of multiple TMNT animated adaptations at IDW.

It’s not yet clear what IDW’s plans for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are beyond the #0 issues, but a follow-up series certainly seems like a safe bet.

First announced in March 2017, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to reinvent the TMNT mythos in several ways, along with the visual changes: the main four Turtles will have “mystic ninja powers” and tweaked weapons, and April O’Neil is depicted as an African-American girl. Pro wrestling superstar John Cena will voice one of the series’ villains, Baron Draxum. Nickelodeon’s previous TMNT series, simply titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (billed as Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in its fifth and final season), wrapped its five-year run this past November.

Solicitation information for IDW’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #0, and Chad Tomas’ cover, follow below.

They're either hyping all of us up or doubling down on damage control.

Either way, I'm excited for this!

I might like this. I like Batman/TMNT Adventures by Manning. I’m confused on if this will be an original story or one loosely based on the first episode?

This is very similar to the Nick 2012 free comic book day issue they launched a few months ahead of making Nick Animated Adventures a regular monthly comic.

I expect the same here. We'll most likely see a Rise monthly comic after the show starts

I'm really hoping they give Chad Thomas the sort of freedom with the art that he had with TMNT Amazing Adventures.
You could tell with the Adventures title before that he was held to a strict "on model" art style. With Amazing Adventures, the art quality was better. I think if they let him use his own style it'll look great and possibly win over some people that don't necessarily enjoy the art style used for the show.
