The Turtles Get Some Competition In ‘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!
And here's the official solicitation -- but don't read it if you don't want the identity of our mysterious mutant spoiled.

That's right, y'all. It's Napoleon Bonafrog, seen here in action figure form:
I mean, he's also appeared in the show, but the show version that's going to be in the comic does not wear rad yellow and pink surf jams. Instead, he's got a fanny pack. For reals.
