LOS ANGELES, CA (March 6, 2024) – TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN was the top-selling western graphic novel of 2023, and now, IDW Publishing is incredibly proud to announce the eagerly anticipated sequel, TMNT: THE LAST RONIN II – RE-EVOLUTION, has made a triumphant debut out of the sewers and into comic shops.

“The reaction to, and continued success of THE LAST RONIN series goes so far beyond anything we imagined at any time during the creation process…  humbling is the best way to sum it up for me,” said Eastman. “The whole team just wanted to tell the best story we could. The fact we get to continue to tell more stories set in the TMNT Last Ronin Universe is another gift from the most incredible fans on the planet.”

IDW Editor-in-Chief Jamie S. Rich is amazed by Eastman’s creativity and the overwhelming positivity from the TMNT community. “We have a saying around IDW – ‘Never underestimate LAST RONIN.’ In addition to the numbers on this coming in higher than initial expectations, the fan reaction is once again through the roof. It’s just incredible how excited everyone is to see the incredible legacy of TMNT continued. Forty years down the road, and Kevin Eastman still has the power to wow us!”
