It’s been almost a year since Netflix’s smash-hit Stranger Things Season 4 premiered generating new memes and introducing breakout character Eddie Munson. Fans eagerly anticipating for the fifth and final season will likely be waiting for at least another year. But fear not, for IDW has you covered with the ultimate ’80s nostalgia crossover! The publisher has announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things crossover 4-issue miniseries from writer Cameron Chittock and artist Fero Pe arriving this July. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stranger ThingsIt’s worth noting that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Stranger Things have collided. Last summer, Playmates unveiled a Stranger Things/TMNT toy line.

Here’s how the publisher describes the miniseries:

Eleven, Max, Dustin, Mike, Will, and Lucas are looking forward to a nonthreatening, fun-filled trip to New York City. With the gang hundreds of miles from the otherworldly weirdness of their hometown, they’re sure to catch a break this time…or at least that’s what they think until they encounter a threat both bizarre and familiar. To face that threat, they must unite with a fearsome fighting team every bit as bizarre…but green!

Chittock expressed great excitement at the opportunity to combine the two franchises:

“I’ve loved the Ninja Turtles for quite literally as long as I can remember, and part of the brilliant alchemy of Stranger Things is that, ever since that first binge, it’s felt like it’s always been there. That’s a testament to Eastman, Laird, and the Duffer brothers who tell stories that grab hold of you and don’t let go. Bringing their creations together is a surreal thrill, and we’re striving to fill every issue with moments worthy of their lofty standards. I can’t wait for fans to join us in 1985 to find out what’s lurking underneath New York.”

Pe, who has drawn various TMNT projects in the past, added:

“It feels incredible to be the artist of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things. For the art on this project, I wanted to do something unique, inspired by the era when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created and the setting of the Stranger Things series. It’s a style close to the first Turtles comics from Mirage. I hope that the fans of both worlds enjoy it very much!”

IDW editor Jonathan Manning said:

“We are thrilled to bring these icons of the ’80s together. The TMNT were born in comics in the ’80s and inspired the generation of fans to whom Mike, Eleven, Will, Dustin, Lucas, and Max belong. You just know those kids have that treasured issue #1 lying around. Working with our partners at Dark Horse, we’re able to unite these characters, introducing new readers to classic Mirage Studios–era TMNT, continuing to build the world of Stranger Things in comics, and celebrating these legacy franchises.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things #1 will be available with multiple cover variants including Cover A by series artist Fero Pe, Cover B by Jorge Corona (Batgirls), Cover C by Jenn Woodall (Sleeping Beauties), Cover D by Adam Gorham (Jughead: The Hunger), and rare retailer incentive variants, including those by Rafael Albuquerque (Detective Comics) and Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon).
