Youmacon and Midwest Media Expo 2015!


This is Youmacon… this is Youmacon, Youmacon, Youmacon!  That’s right, it the week of Youmacon, which means it’s also Halloween and I’m just so excited to be returning to one of my favorite conventions of the year.  A great staff, awesome talent and a big fun location.  Fun panels and amazing concerts!  In this write up I’ll share a bit about Youmacon 2014 and since Youmacon is ran by the same crew as Midwest Media Expo, I felt this was a great time to pull out one of the TMNT Panels I did at Midwest Media Expo 2015! 

Kodak Moments #11

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that have been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is Ninjara and I at a pizza place near Phoenix, AZ.

"Mark, I need your help. You guys have a way to travel to where I don't even know I'm going somewhere. I need your help now, I'd like to get Master Splinter home for Donatello to take care of him, but I don't want to have to pull him home, through a plane trip and all, that would be to much on him.  Can you help me?"

Once I catch up with Raphael and Ninjara, there’s only one thing left on my mind. Master Splinter. Where is he? Is he really dead?

Donatello sits near me until Master Splinter comes into the room. I look up at Master Splinter.  "I'm okay, please check on Mikey, Sensei."

Part 7

A few months passed before I was fully on my feet again. I know what I have to do, but there is a problem. These blades that are my arm are terrible.  They rip and tear at me. I get upset with every little thing that goes wrong.

Part 3

This night everything seems so dark.

I go to look outside, past the bars on the windows. I want to go home. But I know before I can do that, I have to take these bad guys out and from what I saw, I’m on my own. My brothers and Splinter have no idea where I am.

Part 2

The pain from the blades were something that I didn't know about and I wasn't going to take time to think about it right now. I have to save these people from the Ws, even though at this time I am a W.

Words and Pictures Membership Party 1997

In honor of it being Kevin Eastman’s Birthday, a week from today, I would like to share one of my many stories of a time I met up with Kevin.  Today’s story goes back to 1997 at the Words & Pictures Museum.  It was time for the Words & Pictures membership party and a handful of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans from the TMNT-L mailing list decided to meet up for the event this year.  It was a busy weekend.  On Thursday, Kevin was doing a speech about his life at the museum and we also had the airing of the second episode of the Next Mutation that Friday.
