Bebop and Rocksteady Hit the Road in new TMNT miniseries this August

Courtesy of the IDW August Solicitations released today, we now know a little more about just how Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver are fixing to take everyone’s favourite Warthog/Rhino double-act on a carnage-fuelled road trip this summer.

The five-part Bebop & Rocksteady Hit the Road! miniseries will go on sale in August, with a new issue released every week.  The sequel to the gloriously bonkers Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! sees the pair heading back to NYC, and each issue will feature a stunning interlocking cover courtesy of the fantastic Nick Pitarra.

Speaking about the series, Bates said “I have a clear memory of playing with my Rocksteady and Bebop figures as a kid, studying all the details that were unique to each of them, what seem to define their individual personalities and overthinking how cool as characters they were.  It’s crazy to me that I still get to play with these guys as an adult; I hope it never stops! Turtles forever!”

Weaved added “I feel so lucky that Ben and I have gotten to make a contribution to the TMNT universe with these B&R stories.  Hit the Road is a natural continuation of what we did in Destroy Everything.  It feels just as wild and fun.  I kind of love these guys.”

So feast your eyes on four out of the five covers – along with the solicitation info for each issue – below, and we’ll see you bums in August!
