IDW Announces 'TMNT The Last Ronin Design Archive #1'

In late 2019, it was announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were working together once again for The Last Ronin, their first TMNT project in 25 years, taking many fans by surprise.

Springing from a lost 1987 storyline by TMNT co-creators Eastman and Laird, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin from IDW Publishing made its much-anticipated debut in summer 2020 and ran for five oversized issues.

Set in a future New York City far different from the one we know today, The Last Ronin followed a lone surviving Turtle who goes on a seemingly hopeless mission to obtain justice for his fallen family and friends. Kinetic layouts from Eastman, atmospheric inks from Andy Kuhn, and a thrilling script full of surprises from longtime TMNT scribe Tom Waltz all combined to make this one of the most memorable TMNT stories that fans will ever read.

Now, fans will be able to find out how it all came together in IDW's TMNT The Last Ronin Design Archive #1!

Set for release on September 8, 2021, TMNT The Last Ronin Design Archive #1 will feature never-before-seen behind the scenes artwork and design notes from TMNT: The Last Ronin #2 and #3-pulled straight from the mind of TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman and poured unfiltered onto the page!
