Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (IDW) is an ongoing comic book series published by IDW Publishing. Starting with TMNT #1 in August of 2011, the initial creative team consisted of TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman (story & layouts), Tom Waltz (story & script), Dan Duncan (art), and Bobby Curnow (editor).

Beginning with TMNT #101 in January of 2020, Sophie Campbell has taken over as head writer and artist, with Eastman and Waltz remaining as story consultants, and Curnow as editor.

The series slightly reimagines the origins of the Turtles, tying them deeply to many of their enemies and allies. This incarnation of the turtles is the longest running comic series in their history, and this can be seen in both the large web of characters, as well as the growth of the main players. More recently, the number of mutants has been greatly expanded, both friends and foes, and the turtles have had to reevaluate what their family looks like.

In the past, in Feudal Japan, Hamato Yoshi is a member of the Foot Clan, led by Oroku Saki. After seeing Saki make a ruthless choice, Yoshi leaves and is declared a traitor. Saki then orders the clan to kill Yoshi's wife and four sons. As the Foot Clan kills Yoshi's wife, Tang Shen, her dying wish is for the rest of the family to be safe. After managing to evade capture for eleven years, Yoshi and his sons are killed by Saki.

In the present, Yoshi and his sons are reincarnated as a rat named Splinter and four turtles, contained in a research facility called StockGen, owned by Baxter Stockman, a scientist who has secretly allied himself with Krang, a ruthless Utrom from Dimension X. But the Foot Clan still lives, and they break into StockGen one night and steal some some chemicals, which, after a long chase, end up mutating Splinter and the turtles into humanoid creatures.

Splinter, remembering his previous life, decides to train his sons in ninjutsu. Each of Turtles was named by April O'Neil (an intern at StockGen) after famous Renaissance painters: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. After 15 months of training, the Turtles work together in the shadows to oppose fierce threats, including Krang and his allies from Dimension X, and the Foot Clan, led by the revived Oroku Saki, who is now known as the Shredder.
