CE Staffer Paul Allor to Write Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro-Series for IDW!

As announced yesterday on the IDW forums, Paul Allor will be writing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro-Series #8 featuring Fugitoid! Paul's story will introduce the popular Fugitoid character into IDW's turtles continuity.

Paul is a Comics Experience alum, Creators Workshop member, and on staff at Comics Experience as the CE Book Club Manager.

The book will feature artwork by Paul McCaffrey, and feature covers by McCaffrey (shown at left) and David Petersen (Mouse Guard).

Each issue of the Micro-Series spotlights another character in the TMNT universe. The other Micro-Series issues are written by Brian Lynch, Erik Burnham, Mike Costa and Barbara Kesel.

The series is edited by Bobby Curnow, a fellow CE alum and a professional member of the Creators Workshop.

The Fugitoid issue will be solicited for pre-order by comic shops in the July Diamond Previews catalog.

Paul Allor is also the author of the Clockwork anthology, which contained 12 original stories on cross-genre characters such as space-faring gorilla pirates, heart-broken robots, a beautiful gunfighter, and even a man on death row.

Clockwork contained artwork by Comics Experience art alums and workshop members Ken Frederick and Carl Peterson, alongside well-known artists including JM Ken Niimura (I Kill Giants), Brett Weldele (Surrogates) and Nikki Cook (Memoir).

Paul has previous experience as a journalist, and one of his articles inspired the death row story in Clockwork entitled X-Row, illustrated by Aaron Houston.

Paul also works as a comics editor on upcoming or released projects such as Girls' Night Out, Gutter Magic, Deluge, and Rex, Zombie Killer

Congratulations to Paul on his exciting opportunity with IDW!
