Bebop And Rocksteady Take A Road Trip In New TMNT Miniseries!
March 26, 2018
Acclaimed Creative Team of Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver Returns for a Destructive 5-Week Event

SAN DIEGO, CA (March 25th, 2018) – Following in the footsteps of Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything, writers/artists extraordinaire Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver return to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan-favorite dysfunctional duo of Bebop and Rocksteady in Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road! With a new issue available every Wednesday in August, there’s going to be mayhem and hijinks to keep fans satisfied all month long!

When a road trip back to New York City goes sideways and their powers begin to waver, Bebop and Rocksteady stumble upon trouble, as only they can.

Co-writer Ben Bates expressed his enthusiasm for returning to the characters, saying, “I have a clear memory of playing with my Rocksteady and Bebop figures as a kid, studying all the details that were unique to each of them, what seem to define their individual personalities and overall thinking how cool as characters they were. It’s crazy to me that I still get to play with these guys as an adult; I hope it never stops! Turtles forever!”

“I feel so lucky that Ben and I have gotten to make a contribution to the TMNT universe with these B&R stories,” said Dustin Weaver. “Hit the Road is a natural continuation of what we did in Destroy Everything. It feels just as wild and fun. I kind of love these guys.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman will provide variant covers for the series.

“Bebop and Rocksteady are possibly the most demented characters in the TMNT universe,” said senior editor Bobby Curnow. “Seeing their trail of utter carnage across the United States will be nothing but a pedal-to-the-metal blast. Underneath the chaos though, Ben and Dustin have found the unlikely heart—and friendship—that exists between the characters.”

Catch up on the comic book adventures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles available wherever books are sold, and mark your calendar for a month of mayhem this August, when Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road crashes into stores!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
