IDW Announces The New, Ongoing ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe’ Series

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #1 cover by Freddie Williams

Ever since it first launched, IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been too big for a single ongoing title. In what has to be one of the most impressive editorial feats of the past few years, the massive story that was being told over the course of the series was spread throughout multiple titles, weaving through the main title and then splitting off to books like the one-shot Micro-Series or minis like Casey and April - and as astounding as it was that it all held together, I'll admit that as a reader, it was a little bit of a pain to flip back and forth through at least two collections while trying to figure out a reading order.

It seems like they're going ahead and putting everything into one official second ongoing series: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe, which kicks off in August with an issue that features Kevin Eastman and Bill Sienkiewicz teaming up for a brand-new backup story.

The Turtles Get Some Competition In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated Adventures’ #9

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Animated Adventures #9

If you ever walked through the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles section of a toy store -- or if, just throwing this out there, you happened to be a kid in the late '80s who made sure to make a friend of dubious quality because he had all the action figures and video games you could ever want to play with -- then you probably already know that there's no shortage of mutants in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe. Heck, there's even a few turtles in there diluting the brand!

But even so, the ancient art of ninjitsu demands that the TMNT themselves remain hidden in the shadows, which is why it might be a problem when a newspaper starts reporting that there are giant mutant turtles out there fighting the Foot Clan - especially since they're not talking about the TMNT. That's what's happening in TMNT: Animated Adventures #9, and you can check out a preview below!

Lost in Transition: ‘Jem and the Holograms,’ Blaze and the Misfits, and Idols and Their Pedestals

lostintransition-jemfeat

Jem and the Holograms is about an all-woman glitter rock band and their quest to rise from the ranks of the Sufficiently Outrageous to become Truly Outrageous. The group has run into a problem: the lead singer, Jerrica, is terrified of singing in public. Thanks to Jerrica’s deceased father, though, they also have a solution: a holographic supercomputer that helps Jerrica create a stage persona that lets her get over her phobia.

There would be a lot of resonant storytelling with me if it just stopped there, since I know a thing or two about how a persona you can put on and take off can make things easier –- and harder. Like Jerrica, I also have a secret identity. However, sometimes solutions just free you up to tackle new problems, and the new problem that plagues Jem and the Holograms is their rival band, the Misfits, who claim that their songs are better and that they are going to get her.

BestComics_0330

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Mike Mignola Provides A Variant Cover For Walt Simonson’s ‘Ragnarok’ #8, And It’s Unsurprisingly Awesome

Ragnarok #8, Walt Simonson

Walt Simonson, Laura Martin and John Workman's Ragnarok is an epic in every sense of the word. It's the story of Thor --- the Norse god, not any other comic book characters of the same name that you might be thinking of when you hear the words "Walt Simonson" --- returning to life as a rotting but vengeance-driven warrior in a world that's already seen its apocalypse and forming an uneasy alliance with a dark elf assassin sent to finish him off for good.

If you're not sold already, you can read an exclusive preview right here, in which Thor's alliance with Regn gives way to an agreement that one of them is more than likely going to kill the other, assuming they both survive for the next 40 pages.

Bebop And Rocksteady Are Going To Destroy Everything This June In ‘Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything’

Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, IDW

If there's one thing that drives Bebop and Rocksteady more than anything else, it's that they are massive, unstoppable screwups. Those dudes can't even go into a building without bringing the whole thing down to its foundation and kicking off a gang war, so just imagine how much trouble they could get into if they had access to, say, the entire time stream.

This June, that's exactly what's happening. Over at the AV Club, IDW has announced Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, in which the eternal misfits of the TMNT franchise find themselves bouncing around through time itself courtesy of writers Dustin Weaver and Ben Bates, with a cast of artists that includes Nick Pitarra, Sophie Campbell, Giannis Milonogiannis, and Ryan Browne. And if that wasn't enough, they're bringing a few old friends along for the ride, too!

IDW Is Developing A ‘M.A.S.K.’ Comic, For All Your Strike Kommanding Needs

MASK DVD cover

"Okay, but when is MASK coming back?"

If you're the kind of person who pays attention to conversations about GI Joe, Jem and the Holograms and Transformers comics --- and I think the record will show that I am --- then you end up seeing that question a lot. Over the years, we've seen revivals for virtually every '80s toy property, but for some reason, the masked heroes of the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand have managed to avoid a comeback. Now, though, it seems that IDW's partnership with Hasbro will finally generate a revival for Matt Trakker and his crew for a new comic book series.
