The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are one of the most idiosyncratic, infectious, and popular creations in comic books, and continue to thrive today with live-action movies, cartoons, and - yes - comic books.
IDW Publishing has led the TMNT revival in comics after Nickelodeon acquired the franchise in 2009, having found a winning formula by blending modern aesthetics with the continued involvement of the Turtles' original creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.
A vibrant new facet to the TMNT franchise emerged recently with the dark, near-future world of TMNT: Last Ronin. This Dark Knight Returns-esque vision of a dystopian future finds three of the founding turtles dead and a fourth looking for revenge. With four issues on stands now, the fifth issue is expected in February 2022.
Meanwhile in the flagship Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles title, writer/artist Sophie Campbell continues to push the founding four (and new recruit, Jennika) further into the sci-fi aspects of the franchise creators Eastman and Laird previously seeded back in the '80s.
And that's not to mention the numerous new TMNT collections coming out at almost a weekly clip, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven't been available for years.
