We were intrigued last week when Nickelodeon gave us a first-look inside Andrew Farago's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History, but now that we've finally gotten our hands on a copy of the 192-page hardcover published by Insight Editions, we can confirm our initial assumption: It's a righteous tribute to 30 years of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's party dudes.

Fans got a pretty solid look at the four stars of Jonathan Liebesman's live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie in action figure form a few months back, but now the rest of the cast can be seen in all of their plastic Playmates prestige. Click through for a good look at Shredder, Splinter, April O'Neil, what appears to be a Foot Clan soldier, and a trenchcoated Raphael from the first series of TMNT 2014 movie toys.

Every teenager eventually turns 30, some just do it with
better greener skin. This month Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series celebrates three decades of comics -- comics which of course served as a springboard for almost as many years of cartoons, video games, toys, movies and more. Whether fans have been along for the ride the entire third-of-a-century or are relatively new to the green machines, Insight Editions' upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History aims to provide readers with a potent picture of the TMNT's history.
Kick off the month of May with today's links.
