Stan Sakai orchestre une nouvelle rencontre entre les Tortues Ninja et Miyamoto Usagi dans la mini-série Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Usagi Yojimbo: WhereWhen. Début de la publication en mars 2023.
« I am so pleased with the story and art for WhereWhen, » Sakai said. « There is a lot of emotion and, of course, lots of action. I actually wrote this story about five years ago and had been anxious to get to it. In the past, the Turtles have met just a few of Usagi’s friends. This time, everyone is thrown in…Gen, Tomoe, Jotaro, Yukichi, Kitsune, Chizu, and more! This one is epic! »
Here’s how iDW describes the story:
« The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pursue the evil cyborg genius Dr. WhereWhen through a time portal … and emerge in feudal Japan! There, they encounter Miyamoto Usagi, 20 years into the samurai’s future but decades after the arrival of Dr. WhereWhen, who has already carved himself a fiefdom using mechanized clockwork samurai robots, with the intention of conquering both the past and current timelines! »
Each and every issue will feature a wraparound cover by Sakai, plus alternate covers by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, Sarah Myer and David Petersen. Issue #1 will also include a blank cover variant, perfect for artists or even convention commissions.
