Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines, Raphael is cool but rude, Michelangelo is a party dude! The animated Turtles of the original cartoon are back!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first appeared in 1984, but it wasn’t until 1987 that a catchy theme song and action-packed cartoon helped make them a global phenomenon! Now, in this miniseries, discover four “lost episodes” that follow in the radical two-toed footsteps of the classic animated series.
First, an unexpected power surge leaves the brothers trapped in a virtual training program, facing digital versions of their most fearsome foes, in “VR in Deep Trouble”! Next, a mysterious piece of tech transforms one of Krang’s stone soldiers into a power ballad–belting rockstar, but how long will the change last? It’s a hair metal adventure “For Those About to Rock”! Then Casey Jones gets superpowers, and he can’t wait to up his crime-fighting game. But when Raph and the others learn his powers come at a cost, can they convince “Super Casey” to give them up? And finally, when Baxter Stockman injects Splinter with microscopic mousers, Donny will have to shrink himself down to save his sensei, in “Big Trouble in Master Splinter”!
Writer Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero—Saturday Morning Adventures) authentically captures ’80s pop culture so that it holds true for longtime fans while immediately appealing to today’s younger audience, and artist Tim Lattie nails the cartoon’s signature look.
Grab a slice and settle in with the world’s most fearsome fighting team, the heroes in a half shell! Cowabunga!
