TUPPER Mutant Ninja Turtles?!?
Well, it seems today's the day I finally let the proverbial turtle out of the bag...
Starting this previous August or so, I've been semi-regularly getting work writing for my all-time favorite creative intellectual property, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
My second story, a 7-page tale about Donatello (the brainy one), "Credo," will be in, "Tales of the TMNT #33," out in comic book stores around the world this coming Wednesday, May 16th.
If any of you guys are comic fans (or even if you're not), I'd love it if you maybe gave the book a shot. If you loved the Turtles as a kid, this issue is a bit of a return to that earlier flavor.
And the main story in the issue, written by my Editor, looks killer :headbang:.
My story is something that's been brewing in my head for - no joke - nearly 20 years. There was an unresolved plot-point from one of the very first Turtle issues (originally published June 1987; I think I discoverd it around late '88 or early '89) that I just wondered and wondered about. It [I]fascinated[/I] me, and got me questioning a lot of things.
As I say in the intro of this new issue (providing my Ed. didn't cut it), I owe a LOT of my creative life to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #11.
And the question I had about THAT story (which you in no way need to have read to "get" this current one)?
Well, I got to answer it with this one. Nearly 20 years later.
The writer Napoleon Hill said, "Practical dreamers never quit."
So, if you're anywhere near a comic book store this coming Wednesday, May 16th, it'd mean a whole lot to me if maybe you took a look at Tales of the TMNT #33.
I'd love to know what you think.
