Frankensteining The Solicits For IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Dimension X Event

Fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who picked up IDW's TMNT Free Comic Book Day release were treated to a Prelude to Dimension X, a five week event comic IDW is putting out beginning in August, with a different creative team for each issue, and connecting covers from Nick Pitarra to help tie it all together, as well as variants for each issue by Kevin Eastman and an additional cover by the interior artist for each issue. August has five Wednesdays this year, so the entire event will be complete in a single month. Ahead of their August solicitations, IDW has granted EXCLUSIVE access to the solicits for each issue to a different website. But rather than go clicking around all over the web willy nilly, Bleeding Cool has helpfully collected all five of the solicits here in a single non-EXCLUSIVE single article so that we can have all the clicks so that you don't have to overextend your mouse finger. Check them out below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
