Review: Motor City Comic Con 2013

In 1996 I made friends with a woman who took the nickname Leonardo on TMNT-L. Before knowing her, I went to SiFi conventions only, though she introduced me to comic book conventions. The first Comic Con I went to was Mid-Ohio Comic Con, I’ve only been to that event a few times.

Movie Review: Ted

Over the years cartoons got known to be something for children or family entertainment.  Though some shows have rocked that boat to remind people that animation is for people of all ages including adults.  Shows like “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy” and “South Park” have got people a bit more wary of thinking that every cartoon is for kids.  Though when you see a soft fluffy teddy bear being animated on the big screen, it’s hard to think it’s not for children.  Which leads us to a new movie coming to theaters this week, “Ted”.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #4

IDW has been keeping us on our toes with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, and this month we got a few hitting the shelves.  Today there is the new Leonardo issue from the Micro Series.  This issue, I had to double check the cover to make sure it was the Micro Series when I saw it picked up from where issue 8 of the series left off.  Old Hob has taken Splinter and the Turtles need to find him.  The art work told me this was a Micro Series since Dan Duncan was clearly not the artist, but the story was a bit of a surprise, until I started to read.

Review: IDW Micro Series #3 Donatello

IDW is still taking us for a ride with all these great comic books coming out, with Tom Waltz leading the way with the main series and Brian Lynch bringing us these Micro issues. It’s no wonder we’re all excited every month waiting for the next comic to hit the shelves.

IDW TMNT Valerio Schiti Interview!

IDW is giving us one new issue after another of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Comics.  They are keeping us excited with the stories and art work that we get with each issue.  For the normal series we have Dan Duncan as the lead artist doing each issue as guest artist get to do covers.  Though with the Mirco Series Brian Lynch is writing each one, the art work has been done by different artists each time.  For Donatello’s issue we have Valerio Schiti.

Cowabunga Corner got to the chance to catch up with Valerio and do an interview about how he got into art, and got the chance to do the art work for a TMNT Comic!

Thanks for taking the time for this interview.

CC: First question, what inspired you to become an artist?

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #67

Hey everyone! Welcome to episode 15 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I talk a little about the history of TMNT voice actors.

One thing all Turtle fans know is that every media has a new set of voice actors, so we're always seeing new faces being brought in. It's been this way since the early day of Ninja Turtles.

Review: Casey Jones Fan Movie

This week a new fan movie premiered on the internet called “Casey Jones” by Polaris Banks and is based off of Casey Jones from Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  This has been a project in the works for a few years as the trailer had been online for awhile.  I got the chance to watch it the night the movie was up for public viewing and found myself glued to it until the very end.
