You know things are pretty bad for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when Shredder, an evil ninja who is literally dressed in knives, is the least of their worries.
That's the situation in the first issue of IDW's TMNT: Amazing Adventures, in which Cluckingsworth, a super-intelligent mutant chicken from their time at April O'Neil's family farm, has returned to New York City and is apparently bringing a whole lot of trouble with her. But while that is certainly a pressing concern, Landry Q. Walker, Chad Thomas and Heather Breckel's lead story isn't the only thing worth noting, because this is also the issue where we finally get to see the Ninja Turtles in a story by James Kochalka.
Here at ComicsAlliance, we've gone to bat pretty hard for IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, but the ongoing story in the comics isn't their only avenue for telling stories of mutant mayhem. For almost two years, TMNT New Animated Adventures has been on the shelves, tying into the cartoon that's currently running on Nickelodeon, telling kid friendly stories that are frequently pretty weird. And now, it looks like they're going to get weirder.
This August, IDW is relaunching the cartoon tie-in as TMNT Amazing Adventures, and for the first issue of the new book, they've got a variant cover by Samurai Jack's Andy Suriano and a backup story by James Kochalka - and I never knew how badly I wanted to see what that guy has to say about Michelangelo until now.
For the past few years, I've been taking a sketchbook to conventions across the country and getting pieces of art with a single theme: Characters created or co-created by the King of Comics, Jack Kirby. After 52 sketches, you'd think I'd be running out of characters, but with only a couple repeats, it's still going strong. Today, in honor of Kirby's 96th birthday, I'm putting all the sketches in one place to show some of the best artists working in comics celebrating Kirby's lasting legacy as a creator!
If you expected Adventure Time's protagonist and noted last human on Ooo to adopt better bathing habits just by virtue of getting gender-swapped, you'd better think again. This week's Adventure Time With Fionna & Cake #2 backup
