Nick Plans TMNT Biography

Nickelodeon has teamed up with Insight Editions for a new book that tells the complete, never-before-told story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles–from their humble beginnings in black-and-white comics to their enduring status as cultural icons.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History brings together rare art and artifacts from three decades of Turtles comics, television shows and films, exploring each iteration of the Turtles including the new animated series from Nickelodeon and the upcoming movie from Paramount Pictures.

The book also features interviews with key players in the Turtles revolution, including co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, animator Fred Wolf, and even the man behind the "Ninja Rap," Vanilla Ice, and will also include fan club letters, the first press release from Mirage Studios, a reprint of the first TMNT comic book and a poster of the book cover.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History will be available June 2014.
