So according to Bleeding Cool, 2013 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie producer Micheal Bay was talking about the new movie at 'Nickelodeon Upfronts' last week. Here's what he had to say:

Also, to follow the rules, and this one feels appropriate for this news:

Hello, Scans_Daily! I'm a little late today, but here is TMNT Issue 4, with 7.5 of 22 pages. Once again I'm going through the story, so spoilers under the cut!

Last time, we saw Casey and Raphael getting lured into a trap by the cat-mutant, Old Hob and his gang...

And I return as promised, with more heroes in a half-shell in Teeneage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #3. Again, I'm running through the storyline in this entry, so spoilers beyond the link!

7 of 22 pages posted.

Change is the only constant. )

I have to say, I really, REALLY love Dan Duncan's artwork in this book. It's rough like I'd want a New York-based comic to be, has so much freaking character to it, and the marker-style inking is PERFECT...also, the colorist is Ronda Pattison, who's done work on Atomic Robo, Next Men, and Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters. A woman comic artist working on MY Turtle book? YAY. <33

So, reality kind of kicked my butt for awhile, and I haven't been on Scans_Daily in months. Man I missed you guys! <3

And I never continued my scans of IDW's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series, which I started with Issue #1 back in Septmber. Time to rectify this. This time, I'm going more in-depth with the story, so be forewarned, there be spoilers about!

I've got 7 of 22 pages, plus a preview panel from Issue #1. When last we read TMNT, a homeless Raph has just barged into a home where a father was beating his son, Casey. Raph doesn't like bullies...



The beginning of a beautiful friendship... )

I'll probably do one issue post a week until I catch up to the series, then wait a month so I can do 7-page entries for each issue. I also highly recommend that if you like what I post, to pick up the ongoing and/or the first TPB (with issues #1-5)

Now a question to the MOD's: The TMNT series currently has a microseries going, showcasing each individual turtle. It plays into the storyline of the ongoing, so does it count as a separate entity and scan accordingly, or use it as part of the ongoing?

So while the big comic buzz last week was the beginning of DCNu, a certain well-known franchise got it's own fresh start. IDW launched the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 on Wednesday, and I feel it's my obligation as longtime TMNT fangirl to share.

Now, I while there are some spoilers behind the cut, none of them are super huge, so use personal discretion. One of the scans has a moment of physical abuse, so I'll put up a trigger warning to be extra careful...

Also, this is my first time posting an entry here, so I kindly ask you to be gentle let me know if I've broken a rule/missed something so I can fix it. ^^

Hey hey, the gang's all... )

Those of you who didn't live through the 1980s might not remember this, but once upon a time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Cerebus were, in many ways, the same comic book.

Both were independently published black-and-white comic books whose title characters were anthropomorphic animals who possessed comically cartoonish physical features and predilections toward medieval weaponry, and both titles began as parodies of popular Marvel comics - Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird started out by riffing off Frank Miller's Daredevil, while Dave Sim was initially inspired by Barry Windsor-Smith's Conan - so in retrospect, it makes more sense than you might otherwise think that, in 1986, the two titles crossed over, in Eastman & Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (vol. 1) #8.

Another fun fact that might surprise many modern comics fans? While Sim is now known primarily as That Guy, who devotes extended parenthesis-peppered essays to denouncing The Female Void for consuming, suffusing and leeching off The Male Light, there was actually a time when his work regularly exhibited an uncanny knack for comedy (yes, of the intentional kind, no less!), and the following crossover between Eastman, Laird, Sim and Gerhard is just such a showcase of that talent.



In the opening pages of this issue, Renet, an Apprentice Timestress to Lord Simultaneous, steals the Sceptre of the Sacred Sands of Time to travel to New York in 1986 (when this story was written), where she meets up with the Turtles. When Simultaneous shows up to bring her and the Sceptre back, the Turtles try to defend her, so to save them all from Simultaneous, Renet tells the Sceptre to take her and the Turtles "anyplace on this Earth before humans recorded time!"

The next page opens in what appears to be a Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting, with this bit of dialogue between two mercenaries:

"Okay, now I know today is Tuesday, but what year is it?"
"Hmm... I don't think we record that yet."

As a footnote helpfully informs us, "Yes we do -- it's 1406 - Tarim," another of the mercenaries cautiously but insistently attempts to rouse the one who hired them, with the following results:

"Cerebus DISTINCTLY remembers telling you not to wake him up until SUNDOWN ..." )

My first post at Scans Daily 1.0 was Ninja Turtles. My first post to Scans Daily IJ was Ninja Turtles. I see no reason to break with tradition, particularly when the tradition is awesome. Because what was true then is true now, and shall ever be true: The world needs more ninja turtles.

From Donatello #1, Donatello goes down into the basement to fix the water heater and winds up meeting the new tenant April's been talking about. You might find him kinda familiar.

If we're going to have a Martial Arts Week, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just gotta be represented. So I present the Leonardo One Shot (originally published by Mirage) IN GLORIOUS COLOR!!

Picked this up from the news-stand way back when the film was in general release. I may be giving away too much but this is one of the first comics I ever owned. I'm not sure whether the B/W version was limited or not but I've only seen coloured copies since.

In any case, this the the last seven pages of the comic, with a final page scene having NOT appeared in the movie.

Layouts by Kevin Eastman, script by Peter Laird, pencils by Jim Lawson, with inks by Eastman, Laird and Eric Talbot.

I really wanted to post this originally when I first came to scans daily. But I never had the chance too, until now. In honor the of the 25th Anniversary. I have some TMNT scans, probably the greatest among them. I give you from TMNT vol. 1 #21, Return to New York Part III, aka Leonardo vs the Shredder. Dial Uppers be warned.
