Review: Fandom Fest 2015

Leatherhead, Partners in Kryme, Michele, Fugitoid, Nick, Phoenix, Leif, Kenn, Judith and Robbie at Cowabunga Corner Booth for Fandom Fest 2015.Traveling to conventions around the country has become an art to the Cowabunga Corner crew.  From New York City to San Diego we have made our way to panels, autograph sessions and fan meet ups.  Though every now and then the Cowabunga Corner crew is asked to bring more than the normal fan would bring to a convention.  With the offer of booth space and panels, we’re brought in to work the convention to help share Ninja Turtles history and facts.  We just made an appearance in Louisville, KY at Fandom Fest.  A full booth of cool parts of Turtle history to share with

Review: Paint and Pixel Festival 2012

There are some events I go too which are not really planned out.  For weeks I was planning to spend October 20th and 21st in Rhode Island for the Yu-Gi-Oh event.  Though during a visit to Northampton, MA with a few friends we learned of another event.  As Tokka and Fugitoid found a flyer in the Thrones Market for a local Art show.  The top of their Guest list, Peter Laird.  Going to be on the East Coast already, but I could not stay in Northampton.  We had to travel back down to New York City, I had to make the choice to spend the full weekend in Rhode Island or take Saturday for Northampton.  I made the wise choice of heading back up to Northampton.

Review: Ultimate TMNT collection Volume 3

One of my favorite things that IDW has been doing for us fans is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “The Ultimate Collection” books.  And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Volume 3 just came out last week!

Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles - The jokes

Since Michael Bay’s speech about Aliens, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans have been going crazy with all sorts of different things picking on it.  We’ve got the media picking it up to where TMZ had Robbie Rist on the show, the voice of the fans; we’ve had Conan O'Brien pick on the movie and so much more.  The hits just keep coming, though some of the best ones have been in the forum of art, be it music or drawings.  I’m going to take a little bit of time now to share some of my favorite Teenage Alien Ninja Turtle pieces that has come out in the last month of crazy Ninja Turtle news.

First, a few from people us Turtle fans all know and enjoy a head sketch Peter did for his blog about this subject.  I just found this a little head sketch picking at the notion of the Turtles as aliens.  Nice of Peter to write up a blog for the fans, seeing as how he has no control over any of what’s going on with the TMNT.      

Convention Tales: Toronto Fan Expo 2005

With all the conventions that I go to, I’d like to share some fun memories from different conventions.  This time it’ll be a day at Toronto Fan Expo in 2005.  I met up with some friends for the event and even made some new friends at this convention, who I still hang out with to this day.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #75

In this episode I share a time when a group of Ninja Turtle fans got to visit Mirage Studios. They were in town for the Words & Pictures Museum and got invited to see the studio.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #72

Welcome to episode 20 of Cowabunga Corner Season 3. In this episode I review the second TMNT Magazine. This is my third review of the Magazine as I've touched it at least once per a season. These Magazines came out in the early 1990's, with great art and fun stories.
