A second ongoing TMNT title title is coming from IDW called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe, according to IGN. Scheduled to launch this August, the series will be written by Paul Allor and drawn by Damian Coucerio,with writers Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman and artist Bill Sienkiewicz doing back-up stories.
The series will reportedly focus on various TMNT supporting characters such as Casey Jones, April O'Neil, Fugitoid, Old Hob, Nobody, Harold, and Baxter Stockman.
“Essentially, over the past four-plus years our TMNT world has grown too large to contain to one monthly title. There are dozens of fan-favorite characters. In short, we need a second title to do the ‘TMNT Universe’ justice,” series editor Bobby Curnow told IGN. “With two series we can flesh out these supporting characters more and devote greater time to the Turtles themselves and expanding their world. Our aim is to tell stories that are self-contained but complementary to the original ongoing TMNT title.”
