SDCCI: IDW TMNT Panel 2013

Comic Con International had four TMNT panels this year.  The first of these four was the IDW Panel based on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books written by Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman.  This panel was to discuss the future of the TMNT series, what we've known, what we don't know and where they're going.  How characters came into the story and how the story could change through the different writers.

Review: IDW TMNT Villian Micro Series #4

In IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Series issue 1 we were introduced to a new character.  She’s strong, she’s bad and she’s got Raphael’s attention.  She reminds some of us of Ninjara, the Fox from the old Archie TMNT Comic books.  She has mainly just been a fighter in this series.  Though in the newest issue of IDW Micro Villain Series she takes the front stage so we can get a feel for who Aloplex is.  Here is my review of IDW TMNT Villain Micro Series #4

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 NYC Comic Con 2012

New York Comic Con is one of those events that you either really enjoy or not.  And since the first one, I have made it a goal to get to New York Comic Con yearly.  This event has almost as much as San Diego International Comic Con for the fans.  Actually, it has one thing going for it that San Diego does not.  It is for the fans, meaning fans are put first.  Making it a much more relaxing event.  Even though they have big crowds, exciting panels and an impressive dealer room, they have been able to keep it down to earth and very friendly.  The big question is, have they been able to keep this feel as the convention grows?

Review: IDW TMNT Micro Series #4

IDW has been keeping us on our toes with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, and this month we got a few hitting the shelves.  Today there is the new Leonardo issue from the Micro Series.  This issue, I had to double check the cover to make sure it was the Micro Series when I saw it picked up from where issue 8 of the series left off.  Old Hob has taken Splinter and the Turtles need to find him.  The art work told me this was a Micro Series since Dan Duncan was clearly not the artist, but the story was a bit of a surprise, until I started to read.
