IDW Publishing and Nickelodeon announced that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012 Annual will be illustrated by Kevin Eastman. This marks the first time that Eastman has drawn a Turtles story in nearly twenty years. The 48-page story is written by Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman.
“After nearly 20 years I find myself once again fully engrossed in the wonderful mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and having the absolute best time in my life!” said Eastman. “The intense creative energy flying around between IDW and Nickelodeon is when this idea was inspired and born, so with this incredible team, I’m back on the drawing board–hanging with the boys, knocking out a full blown epic–and it is AWESOME!”
