Get ready to see Tubular completely rediscovered teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles This September, the animated series announced as IDW Publishing that writer Eric Burnham and artist Tim Lattie will embrace the radical retro vibe of classic cartoons with a new limited series. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Saturday Morning Adventures,
“I’m no stranger to writing TMNT for IDW, but it’s different,” Burnham says. “The version of Turtles that exploded onto TV screens in 1987 was the version I first met, and it brought me great joy … and to play in this special corner of the sandbox is built on that joy! Each episode was packed with humor, action, and lots of high-end concepts, and we’re following that path. I’m not sure anyone in the comics is having as much fun as Tim Lattie and I am with these finished stories. I’m with you!”
“Growing up in the late ’80s, there was nothing like the experience of discovery tmnt: waiting in a crowd with the hope of getting a chance to play with toys, watch a show, or try your luck at an arcade game,” says Latti. “It’s rare in life to find something you love for work.” Be able to do, but to do something you grew up loving is hard to understand. What else is there to say… go ninja, go ninja, go!”
“Toys, comics, character-rich graphic tees—my love of pop culture runs deep, and it all started with the original tmnt cartoons,” says editor Charles Beacham. “It is an absolute thrill for all of us at IDW to bring fans back to that universe in a new, fresh way. Eric and Tim have cooked up some crazy adventures that are definitely on the edge of your seat, so grab a big bowl of Chinese cereal and get ready for some serious turtle power!
