The newest comic book incarnation of the popular TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles franchise, and the first new material produced after Nickelodeon's acquisition of the property, launched in 2011. Set in a new continuity unconnected to any others, it features the return of TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman to regular creative duties after more than a decade away from the fold.

In ancient Japan, Hamato Yoshi and his four sons are murdered by the Foot Clan and their leader Oroku Saki. Centuries later, they are (apparently) reincarnated as a rat and four turtles, who are then used as test subjects for geneticist Baxter Stockman's experiments on brain enhancers (Splinter), mutagens, and super-soldier formulas (The Turtles). Later, after an attempt at corporate espionage gone awry, they become exposed to mutagens, which metamorphose them into the characters we know and love.
