To celebrate 40 years of Ninja Turtles, the publisher is going all out with a Nightwatcher title, TMNT Mutant Nation and more.
IDW continued to roll out their plans for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ 40th anniversary this week, following the news last month of the main series relaunch by Jason Aaron and a quartet of artists that’s coming in July.
In conjunction with this week’s ComicsPRO meeting, IDW revealed five new series they will launch in the coming months showcasing the Turtles from every angle imaginable.
“One of the great things about being at IDW is seeing all the amazing and diverse talent working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles over the years,” said IDW Co-Publisher Mark Doyle. “We wanted to create a slate of books that reflected that talent and allow them to tell a wide range of stories that would thrill all kinds of fans. It’s an honor to be publishing TMNT comics during the iconic franchise’s 40th anniversary, and we’ve gone all-out to truly celebrate Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s unforgettable creations.”
Here’s the rundown of what they have planned …

The five-issue miniseries kicks off in June.
The official Godzilla site has news on Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons II – Sons of Giants, a sequel to the 2023 miniseries by writer Frank Tieri and artist Inaki Miranda.
The five-issue miniseries will pick up where the first volume left off, continuing a story from the 1500s that saw Sir Francis Drake encounter Godzilla on his trip around the world. The Sons of Giants, a monster-worshipping cult that protected the secrets of the kaiju, will play prominently in the new story.

Dark Horse Comics will publish the miniseries beginning in May.
Drive Like Hell writer Rich Douek will team with artists Gavin Smith and Nicholas Burgdorf on Heartpiercer, a new miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics later this year. They’ll be joined by letterer Justin Birch.
In the story, a monster hunter named Atala is tricked into killing the last unicorn, plunging the world into darkness.
“Fantasy is the first genre I fell in love with as a reader,” Douek said. “And my earliest work in comics is deeply rooted in it. In a lot of ways, Heartpiercer is a return to my roots as a writer; an epic, dark fantasy about love, vengeance and coming to terms with the sins of your past. I can’t wait for readers to see the world we’ve built.”
