by Dreamwave Based on the hit new animated series, the new book plunges the Turtles back into their dark and mysterious ninja roots. Splinter, the Foot Clan, and of course the deadly Shredder all return to mix it up martial-arts style. “It should be a lot of fun,” says writer Peter David. “We’re seeing a comic (and TV show) that will be far more evocative of the original comic book in its grittier black and white adventures than in the far campier animated series. By the same token, the comic will be enjoyable and accessible to the younger fans.”
On the art side newcomer LeSean is giving the turtles a dynamic edge, with pulse-pounding action scenes as fluid as any Japanese animated feature.
