-->> ..gee..i hope our first issue ain't our last!!
Dan B. has issued some regret .. ..on the official TMNT site.. regarding the 'Tales.. ' book..:
DAN B.:
Cowabummer! We missed the deadline for getting Tales of the TMNT #2 into the proper issue of Diamond's "Previews" order book, so it will be appearing alongside the next solicitation of the regular TMNT comic. We are not smart!

Although we messed up and missed the solicitation deadline, the production of Tales of the TMNT is still on schedule! We're working with Diamond to get the issue on the stands at the end of March as planned! Here's the scoop on the issues that are already finished or well on their way:

Tales of the TMNT #2 - "Seeds of Destruction" by Steve Murphy (script), Jim Lawson (pencils) and Eric Talbot (inks). A solo story starring Splinter the rat with art by the regular TMNT creative team of Jim Lawson and Eric Talbot! In this, the second issue of the new bi-monthly Tales of the TMNT, it takes Splinter all of his wisdom and ninjitsu skills to ward off an attack by a powerful Foot sorcerer! Martial and mystical arts mayhem from Mirage!

Tales of the TMNT #3 - "The Worms of Madness" by Steve Murphy (script), Rick Remender (pencils), and John Beatty (inks). The return of the Shredder... but not the way you expect! A 48-page extravaganza!

Tales of the TMNT #4 - "Darkness Weaves" by Steve Murphy (script), Jim Lawson (pencils) and Eric Talbot (inks). Raphael and Shadow team-up against a pack of werewolves led by the deadly Lilith!

Tales of the TMNT #5 - "Scars" by Dean Clarrain (script) and Chris Allan (art). The fan-fave creative team behind Archie Comics' TMNT Adventures returns! A solo story starring Leonardo that focuses on the life of the Foot Soldier known as Cha Ocho!

So if all goes well and we don't screw up the solicitation again, all of these issue will ship on time! :)


.... i don't care..this book marks the return of some great artists and writers from the TMNT's past.. and fills in gaps in the new series .. (like the mysterious.. 'Cha Ocho') ..the first book hits sooner than you think here.. and maybe they are off schedule..but yeh.. "..if it's not late..it's not Mirage." ..

-Some added 'TMNT' toon info.. will cover some more of the global TMNT televised spectrum.. 'specially when TMNT get's daily pimp-AGE on Cartoon Network starting in March.. the TMNTs are popping up everywhere.. so.. yeh.. i'm guessin' the TMNTs are bigger than Jesus..
..!!
HEY..!! Watchit.. !! You wanna go to the place with the guy with the red suit?? huh.. do ya ,TOKKA?? huh .. no.. i ain't talkin' about Sannie Clause neither.. i mean..the other guy in the red suit..the OTHER GUY !!.. don't push me,TOKKA!! ..i've been in a bad mood the past 85 Christmas seasons or so.. and don't even get me started on the whole 'Rudolph' thing!! GRRRRRRR!!

.. gee whizz.. testy little savior ..isn't he!! ..sheesh.. that's gratitude for ya..
.. no skin off my back..i don't even worship you anymore.. gaaww..

..well rumours.. but no 100% confirmation ..that 'Turtle Titan' Mike has been showing up in the latest batches of the 'Fighting Gear' TMNTs.. this is pretty believable.. it wouldn't suprise me if Playmates did start shipping him out.. there are some last Minute X-mas bucks from late Mom and Dads who didn't have the time to shop for their kids earlier.. and Playmates prolly is really targeting that this time of year.. well whatever.. TMNTs in general have been selling like mad all month long. 'Silver Sentry and Dr.Malignus' also part of the super hero assortment are on the box.. but were not seen on the pegs.. prolly a lone offering for now.

.. but if your out and about the next couple days before the big 'X-mess' .. go check the TMNT pegs at the store ..you may get lucky.. and if you have any X-mas dinero left over.. ya may get a new Super Hero to add to your collection !!

turtle-fans!

First, I checked out the new UK TMNT Movie website and it TOTALLY kicks shell.

Also just to re-iterate some of the TMNT website updates:
We have some new contest winners for the Art Contest.
More TMNT Daily Strips
Cool Contest for a Leo Statue!
And Last but not least... a wicked sweet preview of the Justice Force to soon be in a TMNT episode near you! Speaking of new TMNT eps, did anyone get a new episode at your local fox box? Due to saturday mornings with commitments, I've missed almost the ENTIRE TMNT in Space storyline minus the first two episodes of it, and tuned in this morning and was bummed out at the repeat.

Onto Dribble for Kids Stuff:
Part 1 of the Two Part Christmas Strips are Here. A new gag has entered the fray, aka, Nick's Mind late yesterday or so, (or was it Thursday??) either way, the ending of part 2, or part 2 of the strip in general has changed drastically. I enjoyed doing the page as a long comic book-like page, but it did take quite a bit of time. I've been working on the strip any chance I had from the 14th to today, where upon I finished it.

Being a good natured fellow tho, I decided to release this one TODAY and then release the new one, part 2, the day of Christmas, or how about right at the stroke of 12?? I think it sounds like a keen ideas, sorta like Santa Claus coming and dropping off your present early...

Now onto today's strip. Labeled "How The Grinch Got His Brother Fired" and labeled as such properly so, is more or less homage to one of the GREATEST christmas cartoon programs every released into the media, and that is naturally of course, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". :-) For a while we've watched the "O Brother" storyline un-fold, which still doesn't truly make a lot of sense why Nate dislikes his brother so, but... we do think that it is safe to say we are observing a whole new low for Nate.

And he does it on Christmas no-less! But don't worry folks. After New Years... a whole new storyline will begin... and so will will be Nate's reckoning! So until then... enjoy Part 1 of the 2 Christmas Strips from the Dribble For Kids Gang!

TMNT Daily Strips are below, follow Tokka's link. Speaking of strips, I got a new one up. Everyone has "limits." Check it out to see what the D4K gang's is. Heh. :-)

I wanted to point something out that he forgot to mention tho.

Dan Berger on the official TMNT Site Added #41, #42, #43 and #44 to the TMNT Adventures page! This is the point in the series of the TMNT Adventures where the writing really found it's own voice. Or showed it, it had it's voice ever since around issue 12 or so, but it had to wait till now to show us how deep and involved the TMNT gang at Archie were!

One of the most... interesting characters I've ever read, and could continue to read, and actually was mad about the cancellation of the TMNTA, is more background on Armaggon the Mutant Land Shark. Personally, one of the most deadliest TMNT foes, even more so than Shredder and Verminator or Krang or anyone else, Armaggon is also the most intriguing. Check out the synopsis and pictures from the issues of "The Future Shark Trilogy" and be amazed at the awesomeness of the story.

Not to go on a soapbox, but this is what cemented the Archie comics adventures of the TMNT in my mind forever, and it was the first time i ever read a comic book, and was literally touched by what I read in the finale, where Leo says... "I don't know what to say."

"there's nothing TO say... that the rain can't say better."

Definately worth a read. With that said, I'm done rambling. Check it out!

..here's the first big blow to the new TMNT ..as far as i'm concerned..the news sucks..

T-drome's ..N turtle sez..:
Dreamwave has cancelled the TMNT comic book series. Issue #7 will be the last one to ship for an indefinite amount of time. The withdrawl was said to be mainly due to a lack of profit from the series. There is possibility however that the series will return in the summer, but LeSean has said he will most likely not be involved.
.. more from " cqb101"..
.."Just saw this posted on the dreamwave message board.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From Peter David's site (http://peterdavid.malibulist.com):

"I have been informed by the fine folks at Dreamwave that they are suspending publishing on the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, with issue #7 (the second half of a two-parter) being the last one to ship. Issue #8 was to have kicked off the four part "T4: The Turtlenator," which Dreamwave has been advertising. Instead that storyline, currently being written and drawn, is being halted halfway completed with an eye towards possibly relaunching in the summer.

As fun as the series has been to produce, writing the first four issues under the constraint that they had to be based on the first four animated episodes resulted in issues that were, I think, not representative of what the series could have been. Plus, of course, one runs the risk of seeming superfluous since you're just rehashing stories people can see animated and for free. Issue #5, starting the run of wholly original stories, was the first issue I was completely happy with, and it was very well received...but not by enough readers. Particularly when one considers that Dreamwave has to pay licensing fees and thus has to sell a lot more copies than a creator-owned title in order to turn a profit.

I suppose sales on issues 6 and 7 will help determine whether we'll be seeing another run at the Dreamwave TMNT during the summer.
..
.. so.. i dunno.. i'll see what else i can dig up.. but well.. as a famous duck once said..
"Ahh..Phooey!!" .. >v<

It's late BUT a new comic is up. AND we're back on my actual domain name for the time being. While I am trying to find a way to get everything cleaned up a bit, website wise.. (not exactly doing a great job tho, it feels like..)

You might fight it a bit simpler perhaps. Or more confusing. I hope it's not the latter. Either or... The Jimmy storyline is picking up steam and also giving me the chance to branch out a bit, and do some more current jokes if I do deem to do so. :-)

Oh and while you're at it, if you could please, I'd appreciate it, remember to vote once every day this month for Dribble For Kids, by CLICKING HERE. It'd mean alot. :-)

there, and you find you were tricked by such witty sayings such as "read
between the lines"
as you find out what it -- oh okay, I'll stop. My agent is telling me I'm digging a hole.   As if I had an agent. Um.. right. Moving along.



Dan and Co updated at the TMNT website. And with such brings much stuff for us to
do!

If you're a fan of the fan-made desktops and icons, it seems the thanksgiving break
seemed to give people time to do more! Check out the new Desktop pictures or go down the other road by checking out the fan-made icons!


 


Also... apparently, well I'll just quote Dan on this one.
Take it, Dan-o!


"Someone wrote and is interested in starting a letter writing campaign to Artisan Home Entertainment to encourage them to release Season Sets of the original TMNT cartoon. If you'd like to joing the crusade, you can write to Artisan at this

-->> Rat Pack??

-I find stuff like the following a little disturbed..& damm it's like the early 1990s all over again.. back in the day the TMNTs were a constant target for parental goups and often it seemed as if the parental groups were more comprised of nothing but irresponsible people that complained about the stae of affiars about anything ..within' their own narrow minded opinions were considered acceptable Television watching,video game playing..or toy playing.
The past decade presented monumental Rating systems for so many things.. it's fairly common now to see a rating for every single television show on the air.. ('cept the nightly news..go figure).. and every single Video game has a rating as well--E - M (rated Everyone to Mature). While the TMNT incedents were a bit more isolated , it was a precursor of the years to follow.. cracking down on everything ..like the old 'comics code' you would see on comic covers that were 'acceptable' for kids to read. Well.. a new generation of TMNTs have spawned a new generation of watch-dog groups..willing to keep an eye on the TMNT..making sure that the shell-backs fit the standard of 'non-vilolent'..

CTV,Canada's Report..::
A group aimed at transforming "children's war chests into toy chests" has released its annual lists of 12 violent toys to avoid and 20 peaceful alternatives. Topping the "dirty dozen" this year: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The Lion and Lamb Project finds very little heroic about the "heroes in a half shell" of the early 90s, who are being relaunched for another generation.
The Turtles "behave according to a vigilante code, where they (and not law enforcement officials) are "judge, jury and enforcer!'" according to the Maryland-based group's Web site.
..


Lion and Lamb's list is here.. while thay don't single TMNTs out..( there are other popular toy lines in the list X-men,Power Rangers,Transformers..ect.) ;TMNT's 'Casey Jones' figure is a the tippy-top.
..i get leery about stuff like this.. while i understand parents' concerns about what children are exposed to.. it can verge very VERY close to all out censorship.. but hopefully ..by now.. in 2003 Mirage Studios has more creative control over the situation and maybe it won't get so out of control like the Turtles had faced in the early '90s. I don't have the answers..but where does individual parental supervision kick in.. ?? I don't know.. i don't have kids.. but i know alot of kids.. immpresional as kids can be.. they aren't dumb.. good parental direction goes a long way.. but well.. .. what can ya do ?? Maybe parents are askin' themselves the same question

-t-Drome tip offs ..from my good pal,NTurtle..
*More of the same report on the Cartoon Network deal..
*and here.. ..(kinda tired news now.. but hey,the more ya know..right??)

- cool news from N.Turtle himself..:: "..from the 28th to the 30th, Kevin Eastman will be attending the Mid-Ohio Comic-Con!You can see him on Sunday in Panel Room A at 2pm! Be there!"

..there..that was..
..ahhhhh..

4Kids Entertainment Licenses Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Cartoon Network; FOX BOX Animated Series To Join Cartoon Network Lineup In Spring 2004

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 24, 2003--
FOX BOX To Continue Airing First-Run TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES In Its Saturday Morning Lineup


4Kids Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: KDE) announced today that it has licensed the U.S. cable television rights to the first 40 episodes of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES to Cartoon Network. These episodes of the animated series will be part of Cartoon Network's lineup beginning Spring 2004.

The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES series will continue all first-run broadcasts of new episodes on the FOX BOX, 4Kids Entertainment's weekend morning four-hour program block. 4Kids has already picked up the series for the 2004-2005 broadcast season. In addition, 4Kids will continue to be able to broadcast the first 40 episodes of the series on the FOX BOX.

"The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES have won the hearts of a whole new generation of fans," said Al Kahn, Chairman and CEO of 4Kids Entertainment. "We're pleased to be able to broadcast the series with Cartoon Network. Now that we're adding the Cartoon Network audience, we're certain that many more kids across the country will become part of the growing craze and get 'Turtle-ized.'"

Now in its second season on the FOX BOX, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, which is produced by 4Kids Entertainment and Mirage Licensing, Inc., features the colorful characters, exciting ninja action and irreverent humor that sparked TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES mania more than a dozen years ago, but updated for today's kids with an all-new edgier look and feel.

The legend of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES begins when four, ordinary pet store turtles are exposed to a mysterious green ooze. The turtles are rescued by a kind and intelligent rat named Splinter, the former pet of a ninja master, who adopts them, and takes them to live with him in his lair below the streets of New York City. After realizing they are all being mutated by their exposure to the mysterious ooze, Splinter teaches his charges the ninjitsu skills he has observed, and trains them in the honorable and heroic Bushido code. The four TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES - Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo - use their new skills to battle the evil Shredder and The Foot Clan, his formidable legion of ninja warriors, in the 30-minute action-adventure comedy series. (This press release contains forward-looking statements. Due to the fact that 4Kids Entertainment, Inc., faces competition from toy companies, television networks, motion picture studios and other licensing companies, and the uncertainty of public response to the Company's properties, actual results or outcomes may differ materially from any such forward-looking statements and further legal mumbo-jumbo.)

-->>..stance..
.. there are prolly more logical reasons why i'm on AIM more at night than in the day..(i was on such a short time ,sheesh) .. i guess i'm gonna stick more to nights. Things said on AIM i gotta take with a grain of salt, but if you got something to tell me please be strait up..things mess with my skull..sorry.

..The reasons why i'm on this web site are long and compicated.. and maybe the Tech Guy here hates that fact.. & maybe Nick isn't to thrilled about it either.. just cuz i wasn't 'here first' ..

..cool..you don't like me.. yeh..cool.. but come to me.. you got something to say to me.. come to me.. don't talk to some kid and have him act like your messanger.

I'm doing my absolute best to keep on top of my own sh6t and Mikey's stuff here too makin' as enjoyable as i can,and there is to much anxiety in a day to deal with for me to be in little head games with people i barely know.

..whatever.. i'm posting this here cuz it's tired and bothered.. i'm gonna stay off AIM in the day when i come on as 'tokkab2' ..

..Like me or hate me.. i don't care.. i've not ever been alot of people's favorite.. but the fact i am here and helping keep the show going is a fact you better just get over.
I'm pretty damm commited to this site for whatever it's worth.. and again you got a problem with that.. get off your sorry gossipy ass and send me an email and at least tell me strait up.

Just cuz my name isn't on the damm website domain name there;doesn't mean i don't have a part in this. (I was coming on this web site just as a regular fan scince the very beginning..so ya know,f8ck you haters..maybe in a way i was here 'first'). In some instances i got a bigger part than you'd think.
Whatever.. i help keep this site going as much as anyone else..Mikey,Mikey Jo,Nick included.. so..rant for the day is over..and you got somethin' to say to me ..say it.. cuz i'm here!!..>v<

Hey everyone. I updated Thursday or so... and I forgot to post it up here again. In a way, i was hoping to hear anything regarding any TMNT-related webcomics that some of you have. As I said in my last post, I am trying to get a database of TMNT fan-comics or webcomics dealing with the TMNT in some form or fashion (such as the characters being a fan of the TMNT) and if you update it once a week, I could do a mass-update here on Mikey's TMNT. So if you have a friend who has a webcomic that matches that degree, or heck, you do, then e-mail me.

Regarding D4K: This week I have decided to do at least two comic strip updates per week as with the storyline and the passing of jokes per minute, and with me trying to find ways to get to those possible jokes without jumping from storyline, I find it a bit nerve-wracking. LOL. There are plenty of Looney Tunes/The Matrix jokes I could have done, but... ah the fun of storylines. :-) Expect a Looney Tunes reference here within the next week or so. But until then.. bear with me. I am shaping up the future of D4K, whether or not it's pure jokes per strip, or maybe some serious tones, with no punchline, sometimes in the comic. But anyhoo, here is this last Thursday's update.

On a Heavy Related TMNT note which ties into Dribble For Kids.... I am looking into going to comic-cons, and one of the ones I was looking at, was the most local one I could find. I live 20 mins from Columbus, and guess what, November 28th thru November 30th, Kevin Eastman will be at the Mid-Ohio Comic-Con! Well that is the flyer, but looking on the site, www.midohiocon.com, you will find that Kevin is really there Sunday, in Panel Room A, starting at 2pm! A definate for TMNT fans and for Kevin's more mature fans, (dealing with Heavy Metal and the like...)

I'm definately gonna check this out. Not to like, suggestively sell, but if you are a fan of Seinfeld, the Soup Nazi will be there, and so will Brad Douriff (Wormtounge from LOTR: The Two Towers and Return of the King) and Walter Koening from Star Trek, and much much more. The tickets stop selling online November 24th, so definately check it out! Kevin's questionare is sponsored by a local comic shop.

Maybe I may see some of you there? And next time I'll try to find out about it much sooner. So let's recap, shall we?

Thursday's Dribble for Kids strip.

Have a comic strip with TMNT mentioned in it or done by you, A TMNT fan? If so, E-mail me.

Check out, buy tickets and go to the Mid-Ohio Comic Con to see Kevin Eastman and MUCH MUCH MORE!

Have a good weekend!

..in the late 1980s ,early 1990s.. the TMNTs were about everywhere..prolly even more so than they are now.. with He-Man and Gi Joe's fadin' into somber level and Transformers takin' refuge in the deepest corners of the Toy Department.. the TMNTS were 'HOT'.. very hot..and it was inevitable for ya kiddos to dig deep into your Burger King kid's club meal and pull out a Turtle badge that bairly stayed on your shirt and the suction cup you could stick on it would keep it on the window foe a few days.. and gees.. a few years later TMNT 3 hit the silver screen and kids' bikes all across the country got hit with TMNT gears and horns and spoke sliders..
Between 'Yu-Gi-Oh!!','PokeMon', and now.. TMNTs on 4-kids cash bus.. it was inevitable..the turtles are once again on the Burger Trail !! TMNT are set for sometime in 2004 in a ..a Q.S.R. (quick-serve restaurant) promo. So good news is new TMNT nick nacks for Kiddies and Turtle nerdies to go proudly go up to the counter and order a kid's meal.. but the bad news is the fatty calories from pounds of fries and burgers to get all the goodie turtle grubbies..
Lucky for you i'm maniac enuff to keep up with the Ronald Mc BidNEZZ reports..so ..i'll dig up more as i can. Currently there is no 'MAJOR CHAIN' name accossiated with this report..but,with as much calories that's connected to it.. better hope it's 'SubWAY' !!

Alright. Love the space!

Okay, there is a new comic, been up since thursday or So. I've just been lazy about getting it up here. As such, I'm gonna do a webcomic call.

If you have a TMNT-based comic of some sort, fan-fiction or... please e-mail at NArgan@aol.com. That way when I do my updates, I can update all of you on other fan comics and the like! So... if you have a webcomic which in someway incorporates TMNT, or IS a TMNT webcomic, then drop me a line. Usually, my updates are every Thursday as it is when I update my comic usually, and post it on here. It's something Mikey wanted to do, and I thought I'd get a jump start on things. :-)

I guess I'll also do normal fan-fiction based updates as well, so if you updated your fan fiction you've been writing for like years and want people to know, check it out, tell me about it!
So
