Idle Hands reports that a new book detailing the history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature concept art from the new Michael Bay-produced film. Insight Editions' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History will be released in June. It features information from every era of the franchise including the comic book, cartoons, films and toys.
Here's the official description of the book: Discover the complete story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the first time–from their humble beginnings in black-and-white comics created in a home studio in Dover, New Hampshire, to their multimillion-dollar breakout success, and their position as four of the best-loved characters of all time. Featuring interviews with every key figure in the Turtles' evolution, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History presents the tale straight from the mouths of those who were there, including co-creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, animation legend Fred Wolf, creature effects maestro Brian Henson, and even the man behind the "Ninja Rap," Vanilla Ice. In visually stunning detail, this book explores each iteration of the Turtles from the past to the present, including the hit animation show from Nickelodeon and the Michael Bay–produced live-action movie from Paramount starring Megan Fox. Bringing together the rarest art and artifacts from three decades of TMNT comics, TV shows, and films, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History leaves no shell unturned!
The book also features tidbits from the cast and crew of the new film. Megan Fox said that Secret of the Ooze was her favorite Turtles film and that April O'Neil had a "very complicated childhood. She grew up with a chip on her shoulder that eventually became a great asset, providing her the courage to become a little bit of a modern-day Joan of Arc."
Will Arnett (who plays Vernon Fenwick), said his favorite scene in the film involved an 18-wheeler and a cliff.
