Book Review: "Family Don't End with Blood"

Fandom is a strong part of my life.  For the past 29 years of my life I have been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Fan, and 23 of those years I’ve been an active member of the TMNT online fandom.  Though I’ve always been proud and happy to share my fandom with others, even before the internet.  I find it hard to think that people feel they need to hide their passions and worry about what the world thinks, since all of us being different is what makes this world great.  I have embraced all sorts of fandoms, though can’t find myself taking a more active role in those other fandoms since my passion stays so much to the world of TMNT.  My other fandoms shine through more to the people that know me or watch m

Review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The IDW Collection Hardcover Books

I recently purchased Volumes 1 and 2 (Volume 3 is in the mail) of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hardcover books. I collected many of the first issues as they were coming out when the series began, then went to trade paperbacks, then began reading them digitally with the occasional collected edition purchase or grabbing the single issues of a special event such as Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything.

Review: TMNT Swap Book

 

Most Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products that I’ve picked up at the market, I’ve at least heard of that type of product before.  Every now and then, something new comes that just seems different or strange to me.  A new thing that young people may be enjoying.  These items are still part of TMNT history and will be shown here.  Which brings us to today’s review, a TMNT Swap Book.

Snap Review: TMNT Pillow Book

 

There’s so many different products released every year that we have a hard time keeping up with everything.  From toys, food, and novelty products.  Wanting to cover everything we enjoy, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can take time.  Which has got me deciding to do some shorter reviews, just doing fast coverage of the product itself.  These are our Cowabunga Corner Snap Reviews.  Each review covering a different product, depending on what ever it is we have to share.  This episode covers the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pillow Book.

Review: "Blast to the Past" a Big Golden Book

Back in the day the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys inspired characters that appeared in the original TMNT cartoon from Groundchuck, Dirtbag to Chrome Dome.  Other times ideas for the Turtles spread from the toys to both the cartoon and archie comics, mainly the Cyber Turtles.  Though this is the first time ever where the toys inspired a full TV Special that is even getting books.  Inspired by the Half Shell Heroes line of Ninja Turtle toys, we get “Blast to the Past”, which also uses the old Cave Turtles and Dino toys, for designs and storyline for this TMNT adventure.  Here is my review of the

Random Review #36

 

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.  This one is a 4Kids Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles book called “The Big Sewer Surprise”.
