Two Pop Cultural Titans Of The Nineties Battle It Out In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vs. Street Fighter’ From IDW

IDW announce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vs. Street Fighter, a series that will “pits the Heroes in a Half Shell against the rogue fighters of Capcom’s legendary martial arts series in a competitive sparring tournament that explodes into a knockdown, drag-out brawl through the mean streets of Atlantic City.” And coming from writer Paul Allor, artist Ariel Medel and colourist Sarah Myer, and debuting in May 2023.

“Arriving in Atlantic City to compete in a prestigious fighting tournament, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles quickly run afoul of the world-famous Street Fighter crew…and their legendary Psycho Powered fighting forms! Both eager to show off their moves and prove their mettle in combat, the two teams instantly clash, sparking a crackling rivalry that can only be resolved with fists and steel (and maybe a Hurricane Kick or two). With tensions already maxed, the pressure mounts even further as both teams find themselves embroiled in a wave of mysterious disappearances plaguing the city. Could the tournament’s mysterious benefactor be to blame?”

Speaking about this titan tussle, Allor excitedly stated:

“It feels amazing to bring these iconic brands together. I grew up with all these characters, though in very different ways—watching TMNT cartoons on Saturday mornings, and then a few years later, desperately smashing buttons while being absolutely destroyed at Street Fighter II. Readers are going to have so much fun watching these characters come together as they face an enormous threat to both teams, from Mikey and Chun-Li’s unlikely bond to Raph and Guile’s rivalry and mutual—but very grudging—respect. This book has it all: humor, danger, a massive number of twists and turns, and a ton of amazing, brutal, over-the-top, bonkers fight scenes! It’s gonna be a blast.”

Medel added:

“My head hasn’t stopped exploding since they offered me the project. Not only because these characters have impacted me in so many ways personally since their debuts but also because they’re such household names! I watched the cartoons and the movies, I played the games, so it’s a very special thing in that sense, too. In my mind, this is the mother of all crossovers, and to get to draw both properties in the same comic is just incredible.”

Charles Beacham, IDW senior editor concluded:

“Whether you’re a die-hard fan of both franchises or have an affinity for one or the other, this book is going to blow your mind. Paul, Ariel, and Sarah have crammed every ounce of fun into each page, and every fight will have fans biting their nails. But it doesn’t stop there. As the TMNT face off against Street Fighter legends to prove who’s truly the best at kicking butt, both teams will learn there’s something more nefarious afoot. We at IDW are incredibly stoked to partner with Capcom to bring two of the most popular fighting teams together in this massive matchup!”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vs. Street Fighter #1 will be available starting in May 2023, with variant covers by series artist Ariel Medel (Cover A), Cover B by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, and retailer incentive editions by Vincenzo Federici.
