IDW and Dark Horse Comics are teaming up for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things crossover comic book

Last July, Playmates and Netflix joined forces to release a toy line that saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters pairing up with characters from the Stranger Things TV series. (They had previously created a toy line where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters battled characters from Cobra Kai.) The idea of a Turtles and Stranger Things crossover must have really appealed to the folks at the IDW and Dark Horse comic book companies, because they have now teamed up to bring us a crossover comic book called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things! Issue #1 will reach comic book stores in July.

Written by Cameron Chittock and featuring art by Fero Pe, the four-issue crossover will bring Eleven, Max, Dustin, Mike, Will, and Lucas to New York in 1985 as they try to take a break from the insanity of their hometown, Hawkins. However, it won’t be long before the kids run into the Heroes in a Half Shell. And the common threat that unites these characters is “both bizarre and familiar.”

Chittock provided the following statement to SuperHeroHype: “I’ve loved the Ninja Turtles for quite literally as long as I can remember, and part of the brilliant alchemy of Stranger Things is that, ever since that first binge, it’s felt like it’s always been there. That’s a testament to Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird, and the Duffer brothers who tell stories that grab hold of you and don’t let go. Bringing their creations together is a surreal thrill, and we’re striving to fill every issue with moments worthy of their lofty standards. I can’t wait for fans to join us in 1985 to find out what’s lurking underneath New York.

Pe added: “It feels incredible to be the artist of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things. For the art on this project, I wanted to do something unique, inspired by the era when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created and the setting of the Stranger Things series. It’s a style close to the first Turtles comics from Mirage. I hope that the fans of both worlds enjoy it very much!

Pe created the primary artwork for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things issue #1, and other covers were created by Jorge Corona, Jenn Woodall, Adam Gorham, Rafael Albuquerque, and Daniel Warren Johnson. A few of those covers can be seen at the bottom of this article.

This sounds like it’s going to be a pretty fun crossover. Will you be collecting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
