Review: IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Games

I recently was gifted a copy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles board game Showdown and after playing it, I decided to finally buy another TMNT game called Shadows of the Past. I had coveted Shadows of the Past since I first saw their kickstarter campaign. The games are very different from one another, but both have something to offer. Popular board game reviewers have videos on YouTube that are far better at reviewing games than I am, so what you’re going to get here is the viewpoint of a slightly more experienced than average board game player (notice I didn’t mention skill) and a lifelong obsessed Ninja Turtles fan.

Review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The IDW Collection Hardcover Books

I recently purchased Volumes 1 and 2 (Volume 3 is in the mail) of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hardcover books. I collected many of the first issues as they were coming out when the series began, then went to trade paperbacks, then began reading them digitally with the occasional collected edition purchase or grabbing the single issues of a special event such as Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything.

Review New York City Comic Con 2016

New York City Comic Con 2016 was just this past weekend.  With a lot of cosplayers, shoppers and guests.  Tons of panels to entertain the masses, games to share the swag with the crowd and mascots to bring super heroes to life.  Here is my review of New York City Comic Con 2016.

I got in line Thursday morning with Metalhead and Mondo Gecko.  While waiting for Alopex, who had Metalhead and my badge.  We met a lot of other TMNT fans.  Getting to talk to people heading to sit in the line that was inside.  Besides for the sun, it wasn't a bad waiting spot.  I was able to show them a few things on my laptop and we some of the other fun stuff I brought. 

San Diego Comic Art Gallery

In August 1994 I made a trip to Northampton, Mass with my mother and sister.  We were only going to get photos of the outside of Mirage Studios, but found something so much more exciting to do.  We learned of the Words & Pictures Museum.  A museum owned by Kevin Eastman, and nicknamed by the residents as “The Turtle Museum”.  Inside there was original TMNT art, other amazing comic artwork, areas where people could draw and even a store.

Youmacon and Midwest Media Expo 2015!

 

This is Youmacon… this is Youmacon, Youmacon, Youmacon!  That’s right, it the week of Youmacon, which means it’s also Halloween and I’m just so excited to be returning to one of my favorite conventions of the year.  A great staff, awesome talent and a big fun location.  Fun panels and amazing concerts!  In this write up I’ll share a bit about Youmacon 2014 and since Youmacon is ran by the same crew as Midwest Media Expo, I felt this was a great time to pull out one of the TMNT Panels I did at Midwest Media Expo 2015!

Review: New York Comic Con 2015

Every year I try to make it out to New York Comic Con.  This is the second time where I did not think I was going to make it for the event, until the last month.  New York Comic Con is a huge event filled with panels, dealers, and guests.  For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans it’s become one of the best events to go too for a yearly dose of Turtle fun.  Here is my review of New York Comic Con 2015.

Review: IDW TMNT #50 *SPOILER*

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has so many different origins, stories, character growth and character designs.  A lot of people always try to compare them to each other, at the same time they’re so different.  IDW Publishing has been releasing their own version of the Turtles which is not like any other out there.  With their own history for the characters, their own plots that don’t match up to any other series and their own way of handling very intense moments.  Recently IDW made a lot of news with Donatello, that was only the build up for what is coming in issue 50.  Here is a spoiler filled review of issue 50 from IDW TMNT.

IDW TMNT #44... RIP Donatello??

Drawn by Michele IveyIDW has made a big move with IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 as Donatello takes the beating of a life time from two of TMNT’s top known henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady.  This has become the talk of the fandom all around the internet.  Though the question is… did they Kill Donatello?!

No spoilers being given here.  All I can say is that there is a page being passed around online that seems to answer this question.  Yes we have seen the page, but would rather discuss the current issue itself.
