Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics, Vol. 1

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans were a bit surprised and disappointed when IDW released “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Ultimate Collection Vol. 3 as three issues of the Mirage Volume 1 were not in the book.  This still troubles me, though it seems IDW does have plans to release these books as a new book is coming to the shelves today,  “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics”, Volume 1.

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures Vol. 1

Once again IDW brings us something really cool for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans.  They went a step farther than how things went with 2009 when Archie released their book of the first three TMNT comics.  How could IDW do more, since they already did another printing of the Archie’s 2009 release?  Simple!  Keep bringing us the releases of the old Archie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures!  And that is what they’re doing!

Review: Color Classic Raphael #1

IDW has been a great thing for us Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans as they’re keeping us on our toes with all the awesome things coming out.  One of my favorite things they’re doing is releasing all of the old Mirage Comics in color.  So far we’ve gotten the first group of Mirage Volume one and today they’re releasing the Raphael #1 Micro Series!  So of course I have to pick it up and see just how this one looks in color.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #6

With the new IDW Series, each of our characters have gone through some major rewrites.  One of these characters is Casey Jones.  Casey has been a major part of TMNT history since the early Mirage Comics, though usually his family life is not too much into the story.  4Kids gives you the idea that Casey’s dad’s shop was burned down by the Purple Dragons.  Both 4Kids and Mirage introduces Casey’s grandmother’s farmhouse, and his cousin.  Though the new IDW book has gone a bit more into Casey’s family life by bringing Casey’s father into the story.  Casey’s father is a drunk, who pushes Casey around.

Review: IDW TMNT #12

A year of stories have been building up to a big fight, Ninja Turtles vs. The Foot!  IDW Publishing has been keeping us on our toes with all these comics building more and more on the characters and stories.  Tom Waltz has been bringing us through this world building up the tension.  With Dan’s artwork flowing right through.  What a comic.  And here issue 12 is finally here bringing us a battle of good vs. evil.  Though this does not end the story, this is only the beginning.

Review IDW Enemies Old Enemies New

Since IDW has taken on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic books, we've been going for one ride after another.  Though it's been a blast, not everyone has been able to keep up with the comics coming out.  A few months ago, IDW published TMNT Change is Constant Volume 1.  This graphic novel held the first four issues of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with the introduction of Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello, as they fight Old Hob in the mission to be together again.  Now we're getting issues five through nine in their new graphic novel Enemies Old Enemies New.

Review: IDW Color TMNT Classic #3

Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume, the classics!  The start of it all.  If it were not for these comics we would of never had a game, cartoon, movies, toys and so much more.  Eastman and Laird brought these characters to life through print.  Through the years, sadly, the comics have become a lost art, until recently when IDW picked up the title of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and decided to reprint the original comics alongside with their brand new Ninja Turtle story.  The Ultimate collection is for the serious collectors who want the best details.

Review: IDW TMNT #11

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle history, the first battle with the Shredder is usually highlighted as a fight for the Turtles.  The original comics Splinter sent the Turtles to kill the Shredder, which is what they were originally trained for.  In the first cartoon series, Splinter was kidnapped by a robot and the Turtles had to fight Shredder and the Foot to save Splinter.  In the movies, Splinter was kidnapped by the Foot Clan.  We don’t even get to see how that happened, but the Turtles have to fight the Shredder.

Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

History influences a lot of stories for books, movies, and even lessons for children.  We find movies based on wars, tragedies, and heroes.  Some movies use new characters that they made up, and most movies that use real people try to stay true to the stories that are already known.  Every now and then someone comes up with a new myth of a real person.  Today, a movie is coming to theaters that is based on a man known as a great President of the United States.  Though this film tells a new myth of this president that includes him fighting vampires.

Review: IDW Mirco TMNT Series #5

The original Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series only had four issues, one for each Turtle.  These were awesome comics that connected back to the main series, each comic sharing a story of one character so you could get to know that character better and did some things that would touch the main story.  IDW Publishing has decided to bring back the Micro Series, though to our surprise there are more than four issues.  This review is of issue five of the TMNT Micro Series, an issue based around Splinter.  This issue picks up directly after issue 10 of the ongoing series.
