Rise from your grave! 30 year old TMNT story due this summer

IDW Publishing are going to release an original story in the Turtles franchise, written by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, it was first written in 1987 and set three years ago (2017). The publisher describes it with these words:

In a future New York City far different from the one we know today, a lone surviving Turtle goes on a seemingly hopeless mission to obtain justice for his fallen family and friends.

Featuring 48 coloured pages, of which the first of five issues hits the shelves this summer. A preview of it can be viewed here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles began as a comic, but later spawned a long-running cartoon series, many video games and toys. It tells the story of four teenage mutant turtles, named after Italian painters and trained by a mutant rat called Splinter. They eat pizza and live in the sewers of New York City, where Splinter teaches them ninjutsu. They fight the evil Shredder, a samurai in metal with a mutant rhino and boar as his subordinates, as well as Krang, a creature which looks like a brain with a mouth, eyes and arms.
