The Mutanimals, that teams of misfit mutants from the TMNT animated universe is getting a new three-issue miniseries from writer Caleb Goellner and artist Chad Thomas, but they're not quite feeling themselves, it seems. That's because Baxter Stockman – the TMNT world's resident evil scientist – has turned them into robots!
To mark the book's announcement, we had a quick chat with Goellner and Thomas about the Mutanimals, the differences between mutants and robots, and why Dr. Stockman would think this is a good idea.
I don't want to be an armchair editor here or anything, but you'd think that if you're doing a story where Batman crosses the dimensional barrier from Gotham City to hang out in New York --- specifically the NYC that's home to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles --- you'd have to take a page or two for him to ask questions, right? "Where are all the abandoned warehouses," he asks, scowling, "And why isn't there a single Playing Card And Chemical Factory on the entire island of Manhattan? And why are your sewers so... livable?!"
The Hero Initiative's "100 Project" is a cool recurring collaboration the charity undertakes with various publishers, where together they reach out to one hundred different artists to sketch exclusive sketch variants for milestone issues, with the goal of raising money for creators in need. The most recent "100 Project" was in conjunction with IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50 and now those covers are being collected into an exclusive art book featuring work from creators such as Stan Sakai, Bill Sienkiewicz and Walt Simonson, among many, many more.
We haven’t heard much in the realm of a third Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, but the TV branch is at least keeping busy. 2018 will see a new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, switching to a new animation style and adding “more humor, a younger and lighter feel and all-new dimensions to explore.”
Once upon a time I didn't know what a Nendoroid was. That was a time when my wallet was a lot safer from the cutest import collectibles on the market. Good Smile did not have much new at Toy Fair this year, but the company did have a handful of products I hadn't yet seen in person in finished form. Though it would have been better to see a lot more of the upcoming Figma and Nendoroid pieces coming in 2017, Good Smile's limited offerings didn't disappoint.

You can always count on a number of surprises from NECA at Toy Fair, but this year, I don't think very many collectors could have expected the announcements the company unveiled. While new Predator and Alien toys are as expected, you never know what the mad geniuses at NECA might have in store for the likes of Evil Dead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other dozens of gaming and movie licenses it holds. All you can be sure about is that you will come away from the NECA booth ready to find a new source of income to pay for all the things you're going to need. Like the new Batman vs Aliens and Predator sets.
If comics has taught us anything, it’s that anything can be illustrated, and if the internet has taught us anything, it’s that anything can be someone’s turn-on. Comics and furries go hand in hand, dating back farther than living memory, with modern furry fandom a direct multigenerational outgrowth of funny animal comics and cartoons.
It’s Love and Sex Week here at ComicsAlliance, so we've decided to do our part to destigmatize furries, because we believe that everyone has at least one furry crush, whether it's the stars of Disney's Robin Hood, a Thundercat, or the stars of Disney's Zootopia. (We see you, Disney.)
To that end, here are nine of our most animalistic passions from the world of comics.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have some of the weirdest villains in all of comics, and that's certainly saying something. Whether it's transformed mutanimals, brains in torsos, or old-fashioned ninja crime bosses, we want you to tell us who you think is the ultimate TMNT baddie.
