Cowabunga Corner #85: 2009 Empire State Building

Hey everyone,

Getting into Karate

Growing up was very hard for me, though my family life was great, school was a total nightmare with all the fights I had to go through.  People would gang up and attack me, and when asked why, it was always “because my friend was doing it”.  Most of the years I would not even attempt to hit back. I hated pain and it would go through my head, if I hate it why cause others to be in pain?  So instead, I would drop down and let them beat me up.  Most superheroes taught you that you needed superpowers or gadgets to be able to defend yourself.  So the idea of fighting back for defense did not come to me till I became a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

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.

Random Collection Piece #7

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

In 1966 a new kind of soap opera hit the TV, one about vampires, witches, ghost, and mystery.  This series followed a young lady named Victoria Winters, who moved to a house which was known throughout the town as being haunted.  The show was finding its footing for the first 200 episodes, as they gave us a few mystery storylines along with the normal soap drama.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #65

Hiya everyone,

Welcome to episode 13 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3! In this episode I share the video of my dad making some Ninja Turtle puppets for a contest I entered back in May.

The contest was being held by Steven Ho, Donatello’s stunt double from TMNT 2 & 3. He was offering a story board from TMNT 2 to the winners of the contest. It had to a be a video and/or picture that related back to TMNT 2 some how.

Review: New York City Comic Con 2011

New York City Comic Con is a convention worthy of having returning fans and booths.  With a great lay out, fun panels, and a nice size crowd, guests for all sorts of people, games for young and older fans and tons of comic booths and artist for everyone to enjoy, this is not an event that disappoints the attendees.  Every year they try to make it bigger and better, with goals to become as big as San Diego Comic Con. Though, personally, I’d be happy if it stays at the size the convention is at right now.

A Gift of Love, Remembering My Grandmother

Caring. Thoughtful. Wise. Inspirational. These are a few words that I could use to describe my grandmother. I’m sure everyone has someone in their life that they can give a lot of credit to for who they turned out to be in life. For me, I have a few people who helped me find my way through life. Today, I’d like to talk about one of those people, one who helped me not fall into depression through my childhood with the terrifying events that I would go through at school.

Movie Review: Green Hornet

One thing that will never get old at the theater is movie makers bringing comic book heroes to life on the big screen.  It has been going on for many years now and will keep going for years to come.
