My First Comicon

A Turtle Fan’s Dream Come True

While I have been to a couple conventions of a similar variety, I had not yet been close enough to a comic convention that contained much of anything I cared to pay for. A few months ago, I saw it announced that TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman would be in Raleigh at the NC Comicon and there were early bird tickets that included Eastman exclusive perks such as early seating for panels and extra signatures. I immediately bought one as a birthday present to myself, but I really didn’t need an excuse.

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.

Comic Con International: TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel

 

Comic Con International 2014 came and went so fast this year.  With so much going on, I have not been able to share all the awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles events that went on over that weekend.  This year Comic Con went TMNT crazy with panels worth going too all weekend long.  The new movie was in Hall H, the Turtle Power Doc was held that same day, followed by Playmates Toys, Nickelodeon, and the 30th Anniversary Panel.  I want to share a full rundown of the weekend, though going to work my way up to that by sharing the panels first.  This here is the TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel.

Review: IDW TMNT #23

In the original cartoon series, Shredder did not try to kill the Turtles right away.  He offered for them to join him.  This was used again in the 4Kids series.  Each time Shredder has tried to win the Turtles over to his side he has failed, and soon decides to destroy them.  In the IDW comics we have a different situation where Shredder knows the Turtles from their previous life.  He does not want just any Turtle, he wants Leonardo.  He has a goal set and is aimed to get it.  In TMNT #22, Leonardo was caught by the Shredder.  So here comes the question that everyone has.  How will Shredder get Leonardo by his side? That is answered in issue 23.

Review: IDW TMNT #22 "City Fall" 1

IDW started off in 2011 with their first TMNT storyline, showing us the new version of the Ninja Turtles. Next we got to know more of Stockman and see the build up to the Shredder. Keeping us pulled in the full time, as we got up to the Krang War going to Dimension X. This brought us away from New York and the story that they started teasing with us early.
