TMNT Comic Book App Launches

No matter where your fandom lies when it comes to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you’ve got to respect the source material. This is an issue which has become even more pronounced for the turtles, as fans have recently cried foul to certain changes proposed for the upcoming film produced by Michael Bay. With that in mind, it’s more important than ever to familiarize yourself with the origins of these four heroes. What better way than with a new app for iOS devices? That’s right, now you can get your TMNT fix through your iPad! Ninja Turtles? There’s an app for that.


IDW, the comic publishers behind the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic series, has teamed up with Nickelodeon to launch this application. However, despite being made possible by two companies who are relatively new to the franchise, it would appear that they are paying due respect. Not only will this app feature the latest comics in the series, it will also include every other TMNT comic ever produced. Yep, even those beloved original black and white classics can be found here! Current series writer Tom Waltz had the following to say about this new digital approach:


“From day one, TMNT‘s comic book re-launch has been met with outstanding support and excitement from fans of all ages and we at IDW couldn’t be happier. This is definitely a much-beloved property that has evolved in so many fun and interesting ways over the years, in so many different media markets, and the leap to digital just seems another fitting step in that ongoing evolution.”


Well said, Tom. The new app will be made available for iOS via comiXology technology, and the digital comics are also being released for Android and other devices such as the Kindle Fire.
