The man who co-created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Peter Laird is set for perhaps his weirdest voice acting gig yet this weekend's latest CG animated episode entitled, "Ice Cream Kitty," on Nickelodeon. Kevin Eastman will meow it up as April's cat, who accidentally ingests a flawed retromutagen experiment -- flawed because Mikey just dropped a scoop from his drippy ice cream cone into the mix -- and transforms into one of the weirdest/cutest mutants the current series (or any series) has ever seen. You can see the transformation take place after the cut in advance of Sunday's episode.
Turning 30 isn't everyone's favorite, but when it comes to Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it's nothing but a cause for celebration. To commemorate this mutant milestone, in May IDW will release its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary Special, an anthology bursting with all-new content from a selection of the comic series' most influential creative teams. If that's not enough, the anthology will come wrapped in the first official TMNT collaboration between Eastman and Laird in years. To get the full scoop, ComicsAlliance got in touch with Eastman and TMNT editor Bobby Curnow. Click through to read the full interview and see the brand new Eastman and Laird art, along with a piece by Eastman, Simon Bisley and Ryan Brown.
While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is in the midst of a creative renaissance at IDW, with the current series making our own Best Comics of 2013 list, the publisher continues to release reprints and collections of stories that had been unavailable for years. Recently, IDW released a new hardcover edition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection, which was originally published in 2009 (the actual 25th anniversary) through co-creator Kevin Eastman’s Heavy Metal publishing house, re-mastering the artwork and providing some stories with color for the first time.
Unlike ComicsAlliance editor Caleb Goellner -- who seems to bleed green -- I’ve only read a few issues of the new series. I really, genuinely liked it, but felt like my memories of the original comics, if not the comics themselves, were better. For that same reason, I haven’t bought a single issue of IDW’s Classics reprints; just saw enough of the first collection to know that I didn't like the cold digital coloring. Really, I didn’t want to see TMNT with new eyes; I wanted it to remain great in my recollection, rather than diminished by the reality. I didn’t want to find out that literally the most important comic in my life was reduced to trash because of the passage of time and changes in perception.
Curiosity got the better of me.
Created just for the new continuity of IDW's current ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series, new villain Old Hob was one of the first (furry) faces fans were introduced to when the book's first issue arrived in 2011. Beginning life as a mutant by attempting to straight up eat an ooze-covered Raphael before having his eye gouged out by a still-normal-rat Splinter, the new villain's predatory instincts have since culminated in one of Casey Jones and Raph's worst beatings in the series thus far. This week in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villain Microseries #3: Old Hob by writer Jason Ciaramella, artist Dave Wachter and colorist Tyler Walpole, however, fans will have a chance to see another side of Hob and learn what set the kitty down a life of brutality.

What's that you're saying? A peek at Kevin Eastman's concept art from the never-produced fourth live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie wasn't enough for you?
