TMNT Movie News: Looking into Directors

Since 2009, Paramount Pictures has been working on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.  A reboot of the story, meaning this will be the first movie that is not holding true to the origins of the 1990 release of the film.  For the first few years, they tossed around a handful of different writers that could be working on the film, finally taking in Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec and keeping them on board.

Review "Change is Constant" Volume 1

Just months ago, IDW Publishing released their first issue of the new TMNT series, leaving all of us comic book fans in shock of just how new these Turtle comics were.  Up to date, six issues have been released of the normal series and two issues from the Mirco Series.  These are wonderful comics that have been keeping us on our toes.

Hey everyone,

2011 TMNT Merch Review!

In 2011, a lot of Ninja Turtle items came out to stores.  We had T-Shirts, mugs, backpacks, pajamas, blankets, and more.  Spencer Gifts and Hot Topic were two of my top stores for 2011, because they carry these items, most of which is displaying images of the original toon Turtle design upon them.  I am guilty of buying a lot of these items that have come out, so in this write up I’ll like to share about some of my favorite TMNT items from 2011.

A tale of long ago

Bullies. A thing that is everywhere you go, even the internet has them, they’re known as trolls.  Everyone has their own stories of these people who pick fights just for fun, or to try and be the cool one.  Though in reality, it’s their own way of expressing how much they hate themselves.  They take their feeling and lash it onto others thinking it will make them feel better.  I have a lot of stories from my past of bullies and I’ll like to share one with you all today.

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.

Roy's Pizza

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II opened up on the streets of New York City and came down to a pizza place, Roy’s, with the crowd buzzing and eating pizza.  A young delivery boy is called over to deliver a pizza to “That O’Neil Lady”.  The scene is well known as it introduces Keno to the movie.  Though how many fans have known the location of Roy’s?

Convention Tales: Motor City Comic Con Fall 2005

Motor City Comic Con weekend started with the idea of 'finding' the new convention center.  They moved from the Novi Expo Center, where they had been since I started going to this convention in 1997, to the "Rock Financial Showplace".  We got there an hour early, and parked right outside the main entrance.  We went and bought our tickets. Now it use to be once you got there you got into the long line and waited until they opened to be able to buy your tickets, but with the new set up the line is inside and you can buy your ticket before getting in line.  Which was really cool.   My mom and I bought got the two day pass which was only $20, then got into the line for the people who just bought their tickets today.
