  1. “I say throw the bum out.” – Classic. Seriously I’m glad you’re discussing TMNT again. I was skeptical with purchasing IDW TMNT. However I am looking to go to my local comic book store, or downloading on Comixology on my Kindle. Loved the discussion, and I agree this new origin does work. I wish they weren’t tear down the story and start over and over again. However this is some great writing. I can’t wait to hear more of the TMNT casts.

    1. thanks! you do know we have done TWO eps of the other IDW TMNT books right? The NEW Animated Adventures….. yeah more of the main book casts are coming!!!

  2. Oh I know you did Two volumes so far…however I had to jump ahead to hear your thoughts on the micro series. I heard that Beebop and Rocksteady were back and got a much different origin. I’m greatly surprised by this new micro series, and glad the Turtles are back.

    1. haven’t read that far as far as Rocky and BeBop… LOL I’m saying we also cover the animated stuff too… which that came before we started this coverage. :-)

  3. So sat down and read Vol 1. Wow, what a great read. This is probably the best origin of the turtles and the smartest in a real long time. The same goes for April and Baxter, Shredder and Krang. No to mention Beebop and Rocksteady. I love the back and forth flash backs I never found them to be annoying. It would’ve helped id this were the 2012 series on Nick. Or if this hit Cartoon Network. Although it probably be canceled after ten episodes…the way CN is going now a days. Old Hob makes sense as he’s a stray cat out for revenge. The whole Raph/Casey chemistry is fun. Onto book two, unfortunately Comixology doesn’t seem to have the micro series. Luckily for me there is two comic book shops not to fat away. Great, great reads so far.

    1. CN would never get TMNT it’s rights are at Nick! and yeah this series would make a great cartoon, but I’m happy with what we have on TV now! Glad you are enjoying the books!
