Review: IDW TMNT 18

TMNT18_cvrAIn December 1987 the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon came on with a five parter to introduce the world to characters created for a black and white comic book.  The producers, writers and directors decided to bring this cartoon into it’s own direction away from the dark dangerous characters of the comic world and turn them into a fun loving group with a lot of laughs. They introduced a lot of new characters throughout their long run on TV, most of which disappeared once the cartoon went off the air in 1996.  Nickelodeon and IDW is giving us promise to see these beloved characters again.

Review: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #2

TMNT_Foot02_cvrAShredder the villain that holds the most power in just the mention of his name for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.  Fans all around the world will answer that Shredder is the true arch enemy of the Ninja Turtles.  Though any who talk to me know that I have mostly been disappointed in the Shredder, as he has just been thrown in as evil.  No real rhyme or reason for what he does.  The only universe that gave Shredder a real background on what got him to go dark and full of anger was the Mirage Comics, until now.

CCN: Playmates Toy Interview 2012

In September 2012 I had the chance to interview Pat and Chris from Playmate Toys about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line based on the Nickelodeon TMNT series that started later that month.  We talk about the steps they go through in making the toys, how long they’ve been involved with Playmates and about toys that have not made it to the market.

Review: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #1

TMNT_Foot01_cvrAIn Ninja Turtle history one of the things that keeps changing is the history of the Foot Clan.  A handful of medias have covered this, most changing it in their own ways.  The IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series has made it very clear that their version of each of the characters that we know and love are different from how we’ve ever known them.  Including the Foot Clan.  We know so little about this new Foot Clan, but we do know that the Shredder is brought back to life.  Karai has been leading the Foot till Shredder is back.  Shredder killed Yoshi and his family back in his previous life.

Cowabunga Corner #103: 4Kids TMNT Season 1

Hey everyone,

Review: IDW TMNT #17

When the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon was cancelled, a lot of great characters disappeared from the different worlds of TMNT.  Mirage, Image, The Next Mutation, 4Kids, and even the movie has not picked up these characters.  As they laid in the past, seeming to be forgotten.  Though when Viacom bought up the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle property back in 2009, none of us realized just how many of these lost characters would make their returns in one universe or another.

Review: IDW TMNT #16

With all the hype of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series on Nickelodeon, let’s not forget the first story arc since Viacom has bought the Turtles.  IDW Publishing has it’s awesome comic line, with a full new story for the Turtles.  Different from any version out there, these Turtles are winning the hearts of their readers.  As Tom Waltz is bringing us on a ride full of action, family moments, bad guys and humor.  In the last issue Michelangelo stood alone against their new foe, as his brothers fell.  So here’s my review of issue 16, where we see how the Turtles face off against this new threat.
