IDW Publishing announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #1 has sold over 130,000 copies on preorder, and is destined for a second print run even before it hits shelves on October 28.

IDW Publishing first revealed this oversized Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic miniseries, based on a 33-year-old story by co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, back in April (see "Over-Sized TMNT Miniseries Based on Previously Unpublished Story by Eastman and Laird"), and retailer demand was overwhelming for the book. As a "Thank You" for retailers, IDW has commissioned a special variant edition to be given to all retailers that participated in the first run order. This black-and-white cover edition will be sent out via Diamond Comic Distributors.
