Kodak Moment #77

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from Motor City Comic Con 2000.

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! 

Random Review #39

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.  This one is about an original art page from Image TMNT series.

Midwest Media Expo 2014: TMNT Panel

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has now been around for 30 years.  With the celebration going on throughout the year I’ve been invited as a guest to different conventions and events.  One of these events was the Midwest Media Expo held in Detroit, Michigan. They asked me to do a TMNT panel based on the 30 years of Ninja Turtles, giving me an hour and a half to talk Turtles, with an awesome co-host to help bring this panel to life, Andre Meadows from Black Nerd Comedy!  This is that panel.

Review: Image TMNT #25

Last September, I reviewed a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Comic made by the fans. This comic was to pick up where Image left off to finish up the story and connect it to Mirage Volume 4, one of the biggest gaps in Ninja Turtle’s history that needed to be fixed.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #55

Welcome to episode 3 of "Cowabunga Corner" Season 3. I know we normally do older video footage for every five episodes of Cowabunga Corner, though by being out in Los Angels for so long this summer we were not able to pull this off for this week. For this week we are bringing you a video about my collection of original art work pages from the Image TMNT Comics.

Review "Image TMNT #24"

In 2000, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came to it’s first real stand still where there was nothing new for the fans, as the bad news hit everyone the Image Comics were ending at issue #23.  At this time, Image was the only source of new stories for the Turtles, written by Gary Carlson, with artwork by Frank Fosco.  The comic sales were not as high as they needed them to keep going, but the story was so twisted, so fun that the fans did not want it to end.

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.
