It just seems a little strange to me that you would publish a comic tie-in to show that's basically over when the last issue hits, especially when the previous tie-ins ended up getting outright cancelled. Don't mean to be rude, just a little confused
It's a mildly long, confusing tale. We had originally planned to do four mini-graphic novels centered around each Turtle, but publishing plans had to change in accordance with the new show coming out. In short, Robotanimals is a different form of one of those pitches that the company saw merit in printing.

That's more interesting than anything I imagined, what were the pitches?

So Robotanimals #3 will indeed be the final Nick era comic from IDW? Not counting stuff like trades or re-releases of course.

That is correct, unless we revisit that iteration at some point in the future. With the new Nick cartoon coming, that's a little hard to picture in the coming years.
