TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES UNIVERSE (Allor/Coucerio)

Vu la popularité des Tortues Ninjas actuellement (avec le film Ninja Turtles 2 : Out of the Shadows prévu pour juin), il était étonnant que l’éditeur IDW Publishing n’en profite pas un peu.

C’est maintenant chose faite avec la nouvelle série régulière Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe qui a été confiée au scénariste Paul Allor (TMNT : Mutanimals, Tet) et au dessinateur Damian Coucerio.

Elle s’intéressera à plusieurs héros secondaires de l’univers des Tortues comme Casey Jones, April O’Neil, Fugitoid, Old Hob, Nobody, Harold, ou encore Baxter Stockman.

Le créateur Kevin Eastman, le scénariste Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) et le dessinateur Bill Sienkiewicz travaillent ensembles sur de courts récits qui seront publiés en complément.

TMNT Universe #1 sort août sous une couverture de Freddie Williams (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).

Le créateur Kevin Eastman réalise un vieux rêve avec Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe ; celui de travailler avec son ami [le légendaire] Bill Sienkewicz :

[quote]How this evolved was, we were all huge fans of the original Leonardo one-shot we did back in the day when Pete and I did a series of single issues featuring the individual Turtles. We were all huge fans of this Leonardo one-shot and really wanted to re-draw it, re-tell it or adapt it to what I call the IDW Universe that Tom built. We have these mind meld sessions where we’ll sit around, talk about plots, where we want the issues, how we want things to evolve and we just kept coming back to this Leonardo one-shot.

Around that time, I’d been talking to Bill, like, “We have to work together. We’ve been threatening the working together idea for, what, 20 years?” I said, “How about if I script with Tom and Bobby, and do the layouts, and then you do the finishes of something Turtle-wise.” And he jumped in with both feet and said, “This should be awesome!” That’s how it evolved. It was a happy accident, perfect timing in that he was available — I mean, I can’t imagine what his schedule is like, but he happened to be available at the same time that we had this idea for the story. It really was a perfect storm to make this happen. [/quote]
