IDW has announced that orders for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin II – Re-Evolution #1 exceeded 140,000, and the publisher will do a second printing with a new cover by series artists Esau and Isaac Escorza. The series, co-written by Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz, with additional art by Ben Bishop, was announced in July 2023 (see “A New Generation of Ninja Turtles”). The 37-page first issue, with a cover price of $8.99, was released on March 6, 2024, and the next issue is slated for May 15.

Orders for the new comic were higher than the initial preorder numbers for the first issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, which reached 130,000 in 2020 (see “‘TMNT: The Last Ronin’ #1 Breaks 130,000 Copies on Preorder”). That series went on to become a best-seller, with the collected edition the second best-selling graphic novel in the book channel in 2023 (see “Full Year 2023 Circana BookScan”).

IDW announced more new TMNT titles at ComicsPRO in February (see “IDW Expands ‘TMNT’ Publishing Program”).
