IDW Sends The Turtles To The Edges Of Time!
March 20, 2014
 
Past And Present Collide In New TMNT Mini-Series

San Diego, CA (March 20, 2013) – The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have faced enemies old and new over the years, but this June they will have to battle against time itself to save the day! Another great way to celebrate the Turtles’ 30th Anniversary, Turtles In Time is an all-new, essential mini-series for fans who just can’t get enough of the heroes in a half shell.

Traveling to the farthest reaches of the space-time continuum, the Turtles encounter dinosaurs, pirates, samurai warriors — and a bleak future, should they fail on their quest! Written by TMNT scribes Paul Allor (Utrom Empire) and Erik Burnham (Secret History of the Foot Clan), each issue features a time-travelling cover by superstar artist David Petersen (Mouse Guard) and interiors by a rotating lineup of different top artists! Issue #1 kicks off with artwork by fan-favorite Ross Campbell, who will also provide art for the issue’s SUB variant cover.

“I love time travel stories, and I love seeing the Turtles outside of their comfort zone,” says co-writer Burnham. “So basically, this is the most fun I’ve had in the TMNT sandbox yet!”

“I am so excited for this story!” added co-writer Allor. “I’m blown away by the artists we have lined up, and I truly think readers are going to love this wild, rip-roaring journey through time.”

Like the previous IDW mini-series’ before it, Secret History of the Foot Clan and Utrom Empire, Turtles In Time, will offer a unique story that further enriches the continuity, taking fans deeper into the world of the Turtles in a way only IDW can.

Created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, in 1984 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles evolved from a cult-hit to a mega-franchise. Appearing in films, television shows, and video games, the Turtles have become a mainstay of comic book culture. Currently appearing in the hit Nickelodeon animated cartoon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they will also star in the upcoming Paramount feature film TMNT, produced by Michael Bay.

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, 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.
