First, with adaptations from select season one and two episodes (including the season premieres and finales), then with brand-new material in May 2013, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures. NAA, which tries fit into the canon of the TV show, lasted twenty-four issues, before being cancelled in June 2015, due to declining sales. Two months later, it was immediately replaced by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures, a far less restrictive comic in canon to the TV series.
