IDW Publishing’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Comics Are The TMNT Comics You’ve Wanted Since 1989

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, IDW

Listen folks, I want to like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a lot. I have a huge amount of childhood nostalgia caught up in those characters, and as an adult, I can recognize TMNT as arguably the single most important independent comic book of all time, a cornerstone that paved the way for a revolution of creator-owned books that continues today. I want them to be good, but there's so much of it, spread across so much media, that it's hard to figure out what to get into if I want something that's going to live up to those high hopes.

Fortunately, Comixology celebrated the release of the latest Ninja Turtles movie with a sale on the current run of comics from IDW Publishing and gave me exactly the opportunity I was looking for. Since I had only heard good things about those comics -- and since everyone I asked about them told me to just get it all -- I took the plunge ad bought up everything they had, and I've been spending the last few days reading through. And seriously?

It is good. It's, like, X-Men in the '70s good.

Wizards Clash For The Fate Of Reality In ‘Kill Shakespeare: The Tide Of Blood’ #5 [Preview]

KShakes_v5_05-pr-main

 

As much Shakespeare as I read in high school and college, I confess I kind of though Kill Shakespeare's plot putting a "wizard-god" version of The Bard and his magical quill into conflict with his creations in a shared universe was a neat but wild spin on the poet's usual beat. Then I thought about it for about ten seconds and went, "Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of ghosts. Oh yeah, he wrote a lot of witches. Oh yeah... he wrote The friggin' Tempest." In next Wednesday's Kill Shakespeare: The Tide Of Blood #5 by Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col and Andy Belanger, all kinds of supernatural elements converge in a climactic battle between, well, everyone - but especially  between The Tempest's signature Sorcerer Prospero and Shakespeare himself. It's the kind of thing I imagine dudes like Harry P. and Voldemort would read to get pumped before a righteous duel.

Two heroes are down as Shredder advances his plot to take New York City in next week's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #23. Writers Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman's "City Fall" storyline kicked off last month, giving fans a taste of what kind of shocking transformation may be in store for one of the Green machines, and this month artist Mateus Santolouco (along with alternate cover artists Dan Duncan, Andy Kuhn, Ben Bates, Ross Campbell and Dave Wachter) turns up the tension as a team short on allies prepares to confront multiple foes.

War Wages In Dimension X In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ #18 [Preview]

tmntongo018-pr-main

There are places that are nice to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there. There are also places that are... terrible to visit, terrible to live and completely miserable to be stranded in. For Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, their newfound Neutrino allies and the Fugitoid, Dimension X is totally that kind of place in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #18 - especially as General Krang and his army of craggy goons fire a seemingly ceaseless burst of red lasers at them, Cobra style. IDW has provided us with

Depending on your allegiances (you'd better not be pro-Martian, traitors!), it's usually nice to watch Earth's engorg

The Neutrinos Join The Fray In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ #17 [Preview]

tmnt-ongo-017-preview-main

When IDW supplied us with an early look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #17 by Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz and Ben Bates, I confess I gave brief pause. I was stoked to see the relaunched comics debut of the previously 1987 animated series-centric Neutrinos, but wasn't sure how the characters would be incorporated into a series that's a bit more rooted in classic comics continuity. Fortunately their appearance m

The TMNT Get Trashed By Slash In ‘Teenage Mutant Turtles’ #16 [Preview]

tmnt16-preview-main

My undying affection for The Mighty Mutanimals is probably coloring my thinking here, but its fairly safe to say that when it comes to the snapping turtle known as Slash, the character has always been coolest in comics. Let's be real - in three appearances on the original TMNT animated series, Slash didn'
