Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Armageddon Game Explodes in August

All the pawns have taken their place for the biggest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book event of 2022!

Debuting from IDW Publishing in August, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Armageddon Game shakes the foundation of TMNT’s comic book continuity as years of intricate planning—whether it be in-universe by the manipulative Rat King or behind the scenes by longtime scribe Tom Waltz—come to fruition monthly in eight explosive issues, exquisitely illustrated by Vincenzo Federici!

In The Armageddon Game, the Turtles—under the leadership of the Shredder—begin a dangerous quest to seek out allies against Rat King’s trio of terror: LeatherKrang, Baxter Stockman, and Madame Null. It’s a mission that will see our heroes spread out across New York City…and across multiple dimensions! But they’d better hurry because their enemies are already on the march, and with the Turtles absent, Mutant Town is ripe for false flag attacks, mysterious new villains, and unexpected alliances. The time has come at last to find out who is playing the game…and who is being played!

The groundwork for The Armageddon Game has been over a decade in the making, beginning with the epic world-building collaboration between Waltz and TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman over the series’ initial 100-issue run, continuing under the skillful direction of Sophie Campbell in the ongoing series since 2020, and boiling over most recently with the two-issue lead-in storyline, The Armageddon Game: Opening Moves.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Armageddon Game #1 will be available in stores with three cover variants, one featuring art by series artist Vincenzo Federici, a second featuring art by legendary TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, and a third retailer incentive edition featuring artwork by Pasquale Qualano.
