CCN: IDW Nick TMNT Interview with Kenny Byerly

There are few people in the entertainment industry which can say they’ve worked on more than one media of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Those who have been able to put this upon their resume, usually have a bit of a gap between their work.  

Matt Hill went from TMNT 3 to the Next Mutation, Robbie Rist went from the TMNT movies to an extra voice in the red sky seasons of the original toon, Rob Paulsen the voice of Raphael in the original toon, and now the voice of Donatello for the new series, and there are more.  The interesting thing with this interview is the lack of the gap, Kenny Byerly finished wrapping up Season 1 of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles writing for the series.  He is already working on the new IDW Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Comics.  This summer we were lucky to sit down with him about his work on the IDW TMNT comics.


I met Kenny at a comic book store, which held a TMNT event.  It was an honor to meet him, as we got to talk a little there.  He’s a good guy and had a lot to share on both of the TMNT medias he’s worked with.  Cowabunga Corner Season 6 will have an interview with him for his work on the Nickelodeon animated series.  Please sure to check out his youtube channel for some fun videos at Comic Con and Nickelodeon animation studio.


In this video we speak about Power Con, a convention that was in California this last September.  It was a fun event for TMNT, He-man and Thundercat fans.  Please feel free to check out my review for the event here:


I was very lucky to have my sister, Miki, with me for filming this interview.  The day before filming she went to the beach with our friends.  When leaving the water, a wave pulled her back into the water and brought her up in another wave smashing her face into the ground.  This broke her teeth and nose, fractured her face and snapped her neck.  The hospital released her telling her that her neck was not broken.  We recently learned that her neck was broken, and she is now going in to get help with that.  Even with all of the pain she was in, Miki got up and went with me to do this interview.  I am very Thankful to still have her in my life.  


Have you read the IDW TMNT Comics that Kenny worked on?  What are your thoughts of those comic books?  Do you have any comic related questions for Kenny?  Please share all questions, comments and reviews below.
