Underwater Peril in ‘TMNT Amazing Adventures’ #14 [Preview]


Waking up and finding your entire home submerged in water feels like a classic nightmare scenario, but it actually happens to Donatello in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amazing Adventures #14.

Of course, he and his three brothers live underground, so it's maybe a bit less shocking. And they're amphibious turtles, so it's considerably less deadly a scenario than it would be for most of us. But it's still a shock. Check out a preview!

Carmelo Anthony Is Teaming Up With The Ninja Turtles, Obviously [Preview]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Carmelo Anthony Special

In all honesty, the main thing that's going on here isn't that the New York Knicks' own Carmelo Anthony is appearing in a special issue of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures comic where he ends up being mutated by the Foot Clan, even if that's what we're here to talk about today. No, for me at least, the big thing here is that somehow, this is not a thing that happens all the time.

I mean, really! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around since 1984. You'd think that over the past 32 years, celebrities would be lining up around the block to team up with them! But then, maybe it's not that they don't want to. Maybe the Turtles have standards so high that you need to be the leading scorer on the United States Olympic Basketball team to get to hang out with Michelangelo. Either way, it's happening now, and you can check out a preview!

The Turtles Get Some Competition In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated Adventures’ #9

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Animated Adventures #9

If you ever walked through the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles section of a toy store -- or if, just throwing this out there, you happened to be a kid in the late '80s who made sure to make a friend of dubious quality because he had all the action figures and video games you could ever want to play with -- then you probably already know that there's no shortage of mutants in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe. Heck, there's even a few turtles in there diluting the brand!

But even so, the ancient art of ninjitsu demands that the TMNT themselves remain hidden in the shadows, which is why it might be a problem when a newspaper starts reporting that there are giant mutant turtles out there fighting the Foot Clan - especially since they're not talking about the TMNT. That's what's happening in TMNT: Animated Adventures #9, and you can check out a preview below!

The Cartoon Turtles Return In ‘TMNT: Amazing Adventures’ #1, And They’re Bringing James Kochalka With Them [Exclusive Preview]

TMNT: New Animated Adventures #1, IDW

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.

IDW Announces ‘TMNT Amazing Adventures’, With Backup Story By James Kochalka

TMNT Amazing Adventures, IDW

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.

The Complete Jack Kirby Character Sketchbook (Summer 2013)



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!

Lumpy Space Prince Calls Out Cooties In ‘Adventure Time With Fionna & Cake’ #2 Backup [Preview]


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 by Lucy Knisley demonstrates that not only is Fionna's monster-slaying spirit the equal of her male counterpart Finn's - so too is her stench after failing to prioritize showering. It...
