Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #55 and #56 have each sold out at Diamond and will go back to press with 1,200 and 1,500 2nd printing copies, respectively. Notably, issue #56 is already sold out well ahead of its on-sale date of 3/23.
Each issue marks a notable event in IDW’s ongoing Turtles series as #55 sees the four brothers reunited and #56 introduces a familiar foe, Leatherhead, into the storyline. In addition, fan favorite artist Mateus Santolouco returns to art duties with #56.
“After TMNT #50, the status quo has shifted for the Turtles, and anything can happen.” says series editor Bobby Curnow. “It’s exciting to see such an enthusiastic reaction from fans for the new direction.”
The new printings are scheduled to arrive in comic shops in April and will each feature an inked cover by TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman.
Both issues can now be ordered at your local comic shop!
