Bebop and Rocksteady have been stalwarts of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics—but they’ve never headlined their own book before. Until now, that is! The troublesome mutants are going to have all of time as their playground, and io9 has the first look at the first issue in the series.
Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver’s Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything finds Shredder’s most infamous henchmen down on their luck, until they find a time scepter that allows them access to all of time and space. And being Bebop and Rocksteady, that just means they have their biggest opportunity yet to wreak some havoc. The five part miniseries, which will feature a rotating stable of artists, is releasing weekly throughout June. Check out the first eight pages of issue one below, making their debut here on io9.
