Spoilers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50!
Shredder dies at the hands of Splinter and the Turtles in a final battle to determine who will rule New York and lord over the Foot Clan. The ending of the issue seemed be a redemptive moment for the villainous Shredder as he committed seppuku in the hopes of restoring his honor.
It didn’t work.
Shredder in Hell, a five issue story that finds Oroku Saki in the bowels of hell and probably getting his ass kicked by demons, will be written and drawn by long-time IDW artist and writer Mateus Santolouco. This series will not only be something of a sequel of the fabled fiftieth issue of the main series from IDW, but also to Santolouco’s other Shredder story The Secret History of the Foot Clan.
The first issue will be release on Wednesday, January 16th.
