Meet the Next Generation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Or maybe that's the BMnyNT (Baby Mutant not yet Ninja Turtles)

TMNT: The Last Ronin told the story of the end of the last of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Michelangelo, as he embarked on a quest to avenge his three fallen brothers, Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael. But it also set the stage for a new generation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles whose adventures will take place in the time after the end of The Last Ronin.

Meet Odyn, Yi, Moja, and Uno, the four still-infant turtles (as of their first appearance in January 25's TMNT: The Last Ronin - The Lost Years #1) who are the heirs to the ninja skills and weapons of the original Heroes in a Half Shell. With Splinter long dead, they're being raised by April O'Neil and her daughter Casey-Marie (named after her dad, Casey Jones).

A mix of brothers and sisters, the four new ninja siblings are the brainchildren of original TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman and Last Ronin artist Ben Bishop, who also returns for portions of the new limited series which is co-written by Eastman and Tom Waltz.

And if you're wondering if there's a common element to their names like their predecessors, apparently there's a story behind them that will be addressed in an upcoming issue of the limited series.

"When Kevin Eastman asks you to design NEW TURTLES, there was really no question," Bishop told Gizmodo in an interview about the new TMNT. "I came out swinging with 12 different new turtle designs, from babies to teenagers." 

"Those made the rounds for a week or so while everyone picked out their favorite four," Bishop continues. "This was a crazy exciting time; Nickelodeon loved the designs, and ultimately we all settled on the four you’ll meet in Lost Years #1."

TMNT: The Last Ronin: The Lost Years #1 is on sale now, and TMNT: The Last Ronin: The Lost Years #2 goes on sale March 15.
