If you read my Post-Christmas update, you know I’ve recently been plowing through IDW’s new TMNT comic book series, and I’m getting pretty into it. I’m not a huge comics fan in general, but I’m digging how IDW is mixing old-school Mirage and Fred Wolf era Turtles into one comic. There are a couple changes to the backstory that seem odd, but I don’t think we even know the whole story yet.
Anyway, if you’ve been reading along too, you may be interested to know that a mini-series called Secret History of the Foot Clan just started, and it looks awesome. The first issue is out now with art by Mateus Santolouco, who has a very cool style. He posted some art on his DeviantArt page, and I love his version of the Turtles. It seems like IDW + the Nickelodeon Turtles combined.
This issue promises to tell the backstory of Shredder, and I can’t wait to read it. Are any of you guys following the IDW TMNT comics?
Update: I read the issue last night, and it was pretty awesome. The last panel perfectly encapsulates why I love this series. Let’s not spoil anything, but if you read it, what did you think?
