Heroes In A Nutshell: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection’

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 25th Anniversary Collection

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.

Things Go From Kitty To Gritty In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villain Microseries’ #3: Old Hob [Preview]

tmnthob-pr-main

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.
