Raphael Gets a Microseries

It's not often that you see a "microseries" from a comic publisher. There's no doubt some nuanced difference between that and a "miniseries," but you're not here to learn vocabulary. You're here to learn that IDW is content with creating its own microseries in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Microseries #1: Raphael due in stores in November.

Written by Brian Lynch and illustrated by Franco Urru (covers by David Peterson and Urru), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Microseries #1: Raphael follows Raphael in his ongoing quest to discover his place in the world. Of course, his uncertainty is amplified upon meeting another mutant, the arctic fox Alopex. It's the classic team-up of outsiders that doesn't involve Kevin Nash or Scott Hall.

The book hits stores in November and even boasts a "Retro" variant edition by Kevin Eastman. Check out the full solicitation after the jump.

Following in the tradition of the original TMNT microseries comes the first of four stand-alone tales centering on each Turtle. Raphael's place in the world is uncertain and he can't shake the feeling that he'll always be an outsider. That changes when he finds another mutant, the arctic fox Alopex, who may have a new clue pertaining to the Turtles origin. Unfortunately she's too busy being hunted alive to share the info! Will Raphael and his new friend survive the night? The Angel: After the Fall team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru reveal all! Well, some, anyway!
