Discover the secret origins of the Triceratons: how they began on Earth, what that means for their return, and how they successfully rebelled against their Utrom captors! After a millennia away from home, the Triceratons are at last free to return home. They come in peace, but how will the world react to a Triceraton "invasion" in the heart of New York City? About how you would expect, especially when the Earth Protection Force gets involved. As the three-pronged attack begins in earnest, it's up to the Turtles to stop the conflict before it escalates into all-out war!
Then, various groups jockey for control in New York, each with their own agendas and goals. But there is one who doesn't care about power or victory, only chaos... the Rat King! Will the TMNT be able to stop him from doing the unspeakable?

Kevin Eastman was born in 1962 in Portland, Maine, and began drawing as soon as he was able to hold a crayon. His discovery of comic books gave meaning to his crazed doodling. After finding the work of Jack Kirby, Russ Heath, Richard Corben, Vaughn Bode and John Severin, he began to hone his craft. His first published work appeared in 1980, a year before he met Peter Laird. In May 1984, he and Laird published Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, creating the hit heroes in a half-shell. Eastman co-writes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for IDW.
