The world famous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back, once more bringing their brand of mutated mayhem to aspiring young ninjas across the land! This collection of brand new material brings the Turtles bang up to date with a darker twist and jaw-dropping, all-action storytelling!
They hail from the New York City sewers, mutated from unwanted pets into wise-cracking Ninja masters by a mysterious ooze…

Taught Knowledge and Ninjitsu by the wise Master Splinter, it’s time for the world to get re-acquainted with the shellsome foursome: Leonardo, Raphael, Michaelangelo and Donatello — the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Emerging from the sewers, the Turtles hit the city streets just as the evil Dr Baxter Stockman prepares to unleash an army of robotic ‘mousers’ – steel mouths on legs ready to devastate everything in their path!

But who is the mysterious villain behind Stockman’s plans - and the leader of the vicious Purple Dragons street gang? Could it be… the Shredder? An all-new series by fan-favourite writer Peter David (Supergirl, The Incredible Hulk, Star Trek), dynamically illustrated by talented newcomer LeSean Thomas!

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the major breakout comics success of the 1990s, spawning the longest-running cartoon series of the time, three movies, two chart-topping songs, and hundreds of arcade and home computer games, toys and merchandising items.
  • A new Ninja Turtles cartoon is currently showing on GMTV and Jetix!
  • A new CGI movie directed by Kevin Munroe is currently in development, to debut in 2007!
  • As well as writing Supergirl and the longest consecutive run of issues on The Incredible Hulk, Peter David has scripted episodes and tie-in novels for the Star Trek franchise.
  • Newcomer LeSean Thomas first brought his energetic, manga-influenced style to the independent fantasy comic Arkanium, before hitting the big time with TMNT.
