Mirage: Goodbye Facebook

Since October 2009, when the news was released that Viacom bought the Turtles.  Fans have been watching more and more of the stuff we know of Mirage disappear.  With the official Turtle website now down for maintenance, the Mirage comics closing down, the few workers still with Mirage only being there a few days a week to handle the orders that come in for their back stock, and now a good bye on their Facebook page.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #46

In this episode I talk about the first issue of the TMNT Magazine. Going over the stories in the magazines. I've always liked the Magazines, so through Cowabunga Corner I hope to be able to go over each issues to share with everyone.

IDW now behind TMNT Comics!

On April 1st, IDW Publishing announced that they have received the rights to publish new Ninja Turtle comics!  The curious thing I find about this is that they’re doing comics based on the ‘original’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as they keep bringing up Eastman and Laird in the press release.  So are their comics going to be based on the original Mirage story line or the original cartoon story line?

In this episode we go back to August 23rd, 1992, PortsMouth, NH for the only Official Turtle Con, hosted by Mirage Studios and Great Eastern Conventions in Association with Pro Portsmouth, INC.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #39

In this episode I dicuss my feelings about the Image Comic Book series over all. From the stories, art, and how it ended up ending to soon. This comic series is one of my favorites that has come out through the years because of how dareing they were to throw things at us that would shock the fans.

Mark Bode's TMNT Cartoon Concert

In episode 3 of "Ivey's Flashback", we have a panel, "Mark Bode's TMNT Cartoon Concert" that was held at Turtle Con 1992, the only official Turtle Con that's been held to date. My dad and I went to this panel, and my dad video taped. This panel was different than any other I've ever sat through. Held by Mark Bode and Steve Lavigne.

TMNT Fan Art

All across the web you have different fan art, from old vampires to unicorns to Dexter Morgan to The Power Puff girls. Even shows that disappeared from TV over 20 years ago have artists out there still drawing their childhood heroes. Of course Ninja Turtles are no exception to the rule.

NYCC and NYAF Review

NYC Comic Con set up

This review covers two conventions, because this year these two conventions decided to take place on the same weekend.  While it was an interesting idea, it had a lot of down falls for a fan who goes to both events.  Namely, they were forcing the fans to make a choice between the two conventions, which took some of the fun out of going to these events.  This, however, did not make for a bad weekend just more stress than what was needed.
