A new series of comic books and graphic novels featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are set to hit shelves from this summer, after IDW Publishing struck a deal with Nickelodeon.

The publishing deal is part of a wider push for the brand, which will also see Nickelodeon premiere a new CG-animated version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise in Q4 2012.

"These all-new comics and graphic novels based on the original series will support the overwhelming demand we've received from the millions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans looking to reconnect with this celebrated franchise," said Paula Allen, SVP, global publishing, Nickelodeon Consumer Products.

Greg Goldstein, COO of IDW, added: "This is one of the most successful comic book franchises ever, and we look forward to exploring new territory with our ongoing series, as well as reliving all the classic adventures."
