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.

There are some areas in history that gets overlooked too often.  The people who put together everything we enjoy that don’t get credit.  That are often not mentioned.  People with skills brought in to do the work and few learn their names.  To those I tip my hat.  This is why Cowabunga Corner has the goal to make sure we can talk with anyone and everyone who’s worked on Ninja Turtles from the artist, voices, producers, stunts, actors and more.  Our goal is credit to all the amazing people that made TMNT through these years be as awesome as it is.  Even if we miss out on meeting someone, we still want to take time out for them.  This is in memory of an artist whose name was not

Review: IDW Micro Series Villains Hob

In the first issue of IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles we learned of a new villain. This mutant cat who was out to destroy the Turtles. He hated them, and had some history with the Turtles. Though the question often rises why this cat is as bad as he was. Now IDW is sharing with us their Villian Micro Series helping wrapping up some of the questions. This month's TMNT Micro Series issue is all about Old Hob.

Review: IDW MLP Micro Series "Fluttershy"

Living would be easy if people did not care what others thought of them. For some people it’s easy to dismiss the thoughts and cares of those around them, but for others they want nothing more than to be accepted by everyone. When I was a kid I wanted everyone around to like me. I asked who ever I would meet, if they would be my friend.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series "Krang"

Life has been crazy busy lately.  With traveling, conventions, family stuff, and so much more.  I have been on the road more than home once again and finding time to write has not been easy. Back in April IDW released the Krang Micro Series issue and sadly I did not get to it the week it came out.  Really I did not even know it was out till I had a comment asking why I did not review it yet.  I did take the time to read it, but still had so much other stuff going on that it’s taken me this long to finally get the chance to write this review.

Review: Free Comic Book Day 2013

The first Saturday in May is a yearly event that people can enjoy. As Comic Book stores receive Free Comic Books to pass out to anyone who shows up. In the Detroit area each Comic Book store does their own thing and the event takes place in the store. This is how I thought it was done everywhere, though this year there was two events I wanted to go to that was out of state. I was in for a shock with how one town runs their free comic book day like a Holiday.

Review: IDW TMNT Classics Vol. 2

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics Volume 2 has come out.  This is a mix of stories of Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stories.  In Volume 1, we had one issue plus a bunch of stories that could be found in other books, but together could be found in Shell Shock.  Now Volume 2 has come out, as they are focusing straight on Mirage issues right now.  Exciting to see in color, though still wishing these were all going into the awesome books that are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimate Collection.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #7 April

IDW Publishing is keeping us Turtle fans on our toes as every week something new is coming to the shelves for us to go after.  This week is no exception to the rule.  Today, two TMNT books come to the stores, one in which a lot of fans have been waiting for, the next issue of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series, April O’Neil.  April gets her own story.  Will there be action?  How will this go without the Turtles there to liven up the moment?  Here are my thoughts on the April O’Neil issue of the TMNT Micro Series.
