Shellback Artworks : Closing Event

When I became a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, I was only 11 years old.  I did not realize that the age of 38 I would be sitting here still talking about Turtles to this day with other TMNT fans around the world.   I never pictured that I’d get to meet so many people who’ve worked on TMNT either.  I have to say it’s been the wonderful people behind the Ninja Turtles, which kept me a fan all these years.  Which is why I highly encourage other TMNT fans to go out and meet these wonderful folk.  I try to stand behind each of these talented people when they venture out on their own, which brings us to today’s story.  Shellback Artworks, a Gallery, store and school that was opened in Wells, ME by one of those amazing guys. 

San Diego Comic Art Gallery

In August 1994 I made a trip to Northampton, Mass with my mother and sister.  We were only going to get photos of the outside of Mirage Studios, but found something so much more exciting to do.  We learned of the Words & Pictures Museum.  A museum owned by Kevin Eastman, and nicknamed by the residents as “The Turtle Museum”.  Inside there was original TMNT art, other amazing comic artwork, areas where people could draw and even a store.

Youmacon and Midwest Media Expo 2015!

 

This is Youmacon… this is Youmacon, Youmacon, Youmacon!  That’s right, it the week of Youmacon, which means it’s also Halloween and I’m just so excited to be returning to one of my favorite conventions of the year.  A great staff, awesome talent and a big fun location.  Fun panels and amazing concerts!  In this write up I’ll share a bit about Youmacon 2014 and since Youmacon is ran by the same crew as Midwest Media Expo, I felt this was a great time to pull out one of the TMNT Panels I did at Midwest Media Expo 2015! 

CCN: IDW TMNT Interview Michael Dialynas

 

IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been bringing us all sorts of cool artwork.  The new styles coming with guest artist all the time.  This makes it so the fans are not just excited to see what is going to happen next in the on going story, though we also want to see the new art style as it’s coming at us.  We all have our favorites and the ones we don’t really like, the best thing about that is there’s something for everyone.  At New York Comic Con 2015 I got to catch up with one of the new artist for IDW, Michael Dialynas.

Review: IDW TMNT #50 *SPOILER*

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has so many different origins, stories, character growth and character designs.  A lot of people always try to compare them to each other, at the same time they’re so different.  IDW Publishing has been releasing their own version of the Turtles which is not like any other out there.  With their own history for the characters, their own plots that don’t match up to any other series and their own way of handling very intense moments.  Recently IDW made a lot of news with Donatello, that was only the build up for what is coming in issue 50.  Here is a spoiler filled review of issue 50 from IDW TMNT.

IDW TMNT #44... RIP Donatello??

Drawn by Michele IveyIDW has made a big move with IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 as Donatello takes the beating of a life time from two of TMNT’s top known henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady.  This has become the talk of the fandom all around the internet.  Though the question is… did they Kill Donatello?!

No spoilers being given here.  All I can say is that there is a page being passed around online that seems to answer this question.  Yes we have seen the page, but would rather discuss the current issue itself.

Random Review #39

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.  This one is about an original art page from Image TMNT series.

IDW MLP: FiM #10

My Little Pony “Friendship is magic” issue 10 has been out.  I am sorry that this has taken me awhile to get too.  Though with other reviews, being on a trip and a few very important issues that has been needed to address I am a bit behind.  So I hope those who follow my MLP reviews enjoy this short review of the newest MLP comic from the on going series.

In issue 10 we pick up from the storyline shared in issue 9.  Big Mac needs to get nails for doing some household work.  While trying to get these nails, he is distracted by many others.  This is something that keeps happening to him in this issue.  As Big Mac is pulled into some strange and crazy things through the festival.    During his time there he gets to create a new dance, win the heart of another pony, and get suckered into a deal from Spike.  All of this leading to the end of a hard day and no nails as he is about to return home.  Though a friend talks to him with an important lesson to be learned.
