The release date for the hardcover edition of TMNT: The Last Ronin has been moved to July 5 due to supply chain issues, a spokesperson for IDW Publishing told ICv2.

"IDW releases books on Tuesdays, and comics on Wednesdays," the spokesperson told ICv2 in an e-mail. "The Last Ronin HC on sale date is July 5th. The on sale date was updated from previously listed dates due to supply chain-related delays, not because of our distribution change."

The book was originally listed with a release date of June 22 in the Previews catalog.

Preorders of the first issue of TMNT: The Last Ronin were strong enough that IDW had to do a second printing last year, increasing the total print run to 180,000 (see “Second Printing Brings ‘TMNT: The Last Ronin’ to 180,000”).

IDW changed from Diamond Comic Distributors to Penguin Random House Publisher Services for distribution of comics to the direct market on June 1 (see “IDW Moves Direct Market Distribution to Penguin Random House”). PRH has distributed IDW’s graphic novels to the book channel since 2017 (see “IDW Moves Book Distribution to Penguin Random House”).
