Leading into the highly-anticipated new TMNT film, Mirage has produced five comic books based on the pre-production and back-story notes of director Kevin Munroe. Each comic spotlights one character - Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and April O'Neil - and follows them into the beginnings of the film.
The first two prequel comics will be available on mobile phones March 22nd (the day before the film hits theatres) from GoComics:
Raphael - Story by Steve Murphy with art by Fernando Pinto. Prequel #1 focuses on Raphael's growing disillusionment with his brothers and sensei, his increasing use of violence and the strange discovery that might provide the solution to his problems. Not to mention lots of kick-butt dark-of-night ninja action! (Sample page below)
Michelangelo - Story by Jake Black with art by Mr. Exes and Ryan Brown. Prequel #2 focuses on Michelangelo's secret identity as the children's entertainer Cowabunga Carl! When a purse-snatcher interrupts Carl's gig at a hockey game, can nunchaku ninja action and Casey Jones be far behind? It's a face-off, and in more ways than one!
More TMNT movie comics will follow on mobile in the weeks to come. The TMNT movie prequel comics will join the GoComics Mobile Comic Book Reader archive, which already features the current Tales of the TMNT series and special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles issues.
