TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: URBAN LEGENDS will conclude with a three issue all new story.

The press release follows:

Media Release -- IDW Publishing (OTCQX: IDWM) is proud to announce that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Urban Legends, their monthly comic book series reprinting the incomplete TMNT series originally released from 1996 to 1999, will finally be concluded with an all-new story running from issue #24 through #26.

The original creative team of writer Gary Carlson and artist Frank Fosco reunite to bring their long-awaited ending to the Urban Legends saga, colored by Adam Guzowski (who skillfully colored the entire series). The new storyline, debuting with issue #24 in April, unmasks the mysterious and deadly Lady Shredder, leading to a senses-shattering showdown that TMNT fans have waited two decades to see!

"It's a pleasure to be able to finish up the TMNT storylines that Frank Fosco and I started over twenty years ago," says Carlson. "I have always been proud of the issues we did at Image. It's great to know that our run hasn't been forgotten, and that so many fans are excited to see how it would have ended."

"After all these years, we're excited to finally be able to wrap up this awesome storyline... so put a helmet on, buckle up, and jump on for an exciting ride full of twists and turns. We've all been waiting for this!" says Fosco.

"IDW is proud to have helped Gary and Frank's adrenaline-packed iteration of TMNT reach its natural and satisfying conclusion," says editor Megan Brown. "It's been an immensely rewarding experience to bring this series to both a new audience and old fans, and to see a renewed interest in the wonderful Urban Legends!"
