Review: IDW TMNT Villain Micro Series Karai

The IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series has been building up a tension between Karai and the Shredder for some time now.  As Tom Waltz talks about our interview we shared earlier this year.  We have learned that she is the one who brought Oroku Saki back, that she is the one who fixed the Foot Clan to be what it use to be.  As much that we have learned about her, it was not till today’s issue of TMNT that we get to learn what inspired her and how she went about doing all that she has done.  In the TMNT Villain Micro Series issue #5 Karai’s history is revealed.  Here is my review of this awesome issue of IDW TMNT!

Review: IDW TMNT Villian Micro Series #4

In IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series issue 1 we were introduced to a new character.  She’s strong, she’s bad and she’s got Raphael’s attention.  She reminds some of us of Ninjara, the Fox from the old Archie TMNT Comic books.  She has mainly just been a fighter in this series.  Though in the newest issue of IDW Micro Villain Series she takes the front stage so we can get a feel for who Aloplex is.  Here is my review of IDW TMNT Villain Micro Series #4

Review: IDW MLP Applejack Micro

My Little Pony seems to have nitch traits for each of the Pony’s. Though when a situation with the Ponies is pushed more than once and you keep seeing them learn the same lesson it can get old.  That is one of the things we keep seeing with Applejack.  She wants to do everything on her own, turns down help and in the end realizes she needs the help.  I like her as a character, though I do find that story a bit old. So I was a tiny bit disappointed with this issue of IDW My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Micro Series.  Here is my review of Applejack’s story.

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 Baxter Stockman

In the second issue of Mirage’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles we were introduced to a man who would become an iconic character in TMNT History, Baxter Stockman. Creator of the Mousers, boss of April O’Neil, and a totally evil mad scientist.  Baxter was taken in for the original cartoon character first they change the color of his skin, then they turn him into a fly.  Mirage brought him back in Volume 2, turning him into a robot.

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: MLP Twilight Sparkle Micro Series

MLP_micro01-coverRE-DFOne of the best things in fandom is sharing your loves and joys with your friends.  Through that you can do so much in life.  For me, it’s been sharing the different medias with those around me and seeing what they have to share back.  Which is what lead me to do reviews of the My Little Pony comics.  Friends who were willing to sit back and talk Turtles with me, shared their love of MLP.  Just another way friendships are great.  And is one of the reasons I took the time to read the newest IDW MLP book “Twilight Sparkle Micro Series”.

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.

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #6

With the new IDW Series, each of our characters have gone through some major rewrites.  One of these characters is Casey Jones.  Casey has been a major part of TMNT history since the early Mirage Comics, though usually his family life is not too much into the story.  4Kids gives you the idea that Casey’s dad’s shop was burned down by the Purple Dragons.  Both 4Kids and Mirage introduces Casey’s grandmother’s farmhouse, and his cousin.  Though the new IDW book has gone a bit more into Casey’s family life by bringing Casey’s father into the story.  Casey’s father is a drunk, who pushes Casey around.
