IDW PUBLISHING’S TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES COMICS ARE THE TMNT COMICS YOU’VE WANTED SINCE 1989
By Chris Sims
Listen folks, I want to like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a lot. I have a huge amount of childhood nostalgia caught up in those characters, and as an adult, I can recognize TMNT as arguably the single most successful independent comic book of all time, a cornerstone that paved the way for a revolution of creator-owned books that continues today. I want them to be good, but there’s so much of it, spread across so much media, that it’s hard to figure out what to get into if I want something that’s going to live up to those high hopes.
Fortunately, Comixology celebrated the release of the latest Ninja Turtles movie with a sale on the current run of comics from IDW Publishing and gave me exactly the opportunity I was looking for. Since I had only heard good things about those comics — and since everyone I asked about them told me to just get it all — I took the plunge ad bought up everything they had, and I’ve been spending the last few days reading through. And seriously?
It is good. It’s, like, X-Men in the ’70s good.

I concur. The new series is better than the original ever was.

denniebright did a garf, roboch did a garf, SO YOU KNOW WHAT HERE I DID A GARF TOO.  It’s the first thing I’ve ever animated that I spent more than 10 minutes on so hurrah!  I want to color it but I really don’t think I’ll have time.

Bossk (Bounty Hunter) 38 figures(1980) KennerMerchandising Is Forever

Merchandisingisforever has now covered my two favorite Star Wars figures (Snaggletooth being the other), and I could watch the paint and color variations on their tiny faces all day.  It’s my new favorite thing on the internet, tied for first place with that deer-attacks-hunter video that I love so much.  Do the world a favor and go say hi. 
Also, Bossk’s eyes are kind of hypnotic.  If I commit some kind of vintage-Star-Wars-related crime in the next couple of days, inform the authorities that I was acting under the influence of 38 Bossk figures when I did so.

Clayface.
Talking with friends last night about the upcoming DC movies, I was saying it would have been interesting if they’d built their franchise villains-first. A bunch of horror movies or monster movies featuring characters like Clayface, Man-Bat, Parasite, Cheetah, Killer Croc, focusing on the villains’ tragic backstories and revenge plots, with the heroes playing a limited role and only really showing their stuff during the climax. Twenty minutes of Batman at the end of “Dark Knight: Clayface” but OH how you’d be anticipating those twenty minutes. Some mega-villain and a few pawns show up across all the movies to tie them together, and then, when you’ve got four or five under your belt, you’ve got a good roster of villains ready for a Justice League film. 
I dunno, I hate superhero movies anyway.

I’d pay to see that.

BATGIRL #35 cover, 2014.  I am taking over Batgirl starting in October! I’m co-writing with my friend Brenden Fletcher, doing covers and layouts for the amazing Babs Tarr, who will do finished art, and colours by the equally amazing Jordie Bellaire.  New tone, new aesthetic, new costume, new everything. Really excited.
