TMNT Editor Talks “Cityfall”

CBR News discusses the seven-part story-arc “Cityfall” with IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Editor Bobby Curnow.

Beginning issue #22, IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will begin the seven-part story-arc “Cityfall”:

Written by Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz and drawn by new regular artist Mateus Santolouco, “Cityfall” will focus on the Shredder’s takeover of New York City’s underworld with a new major domo at his side: Leonardo. As the Turtles’ family breaks apart, the series will introduce a number of new and classic characters to the proceedings including some as-yet secret mutants and Purple Dragon leader The Hun.”Comic Book Resources


Comic Book Resources had the fortunate opportunity of discussing “Cityfall” with TMNT Editor Bobby Curnow:

CBR News: IDW’s Turtles series has been working hard to set up the big pieces of the universe from issue #1, and there have been long-running plot threads within that. At what point did this “Cityfall” story become a part of the larger plan? 

Bobby Curnow: I’d say it was right when we were wrapping our first Shredder storyline, around issues #10 through 12. That’s where we started thinking about what Shredder’s long term goals were, how that would impact the Turtles and how we could start to introduce other characters that way. Around then, we started thinking about the fact that one of Shredder’s main goals since he learned about the Turtles was to destroy this family. And one of the best ways to do that is take one of them and take him as your own. We’ve been seeding that idea at various places in the story with Leonardo. From there, it was all about figuring out what the most organic time was to let this all fly, and now that time has come.”Comic Book Resources
