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! 

The end of the TMNT 30th Anniversary Party

Christmas is over for 2014, which brings us to the countdown of the days to end the year.  Ones begin to reflect back upon the events of the year.  The good, the bad and the relaxing times.  Each of us out there celebrating one thing or another, as we hold close whatever is dear in our hearts.  Some of us will miss 2014, while others pray for a better new year.  For TMNT fans, this new year brings forth the end of the 30th anniversary celebration.  This is a short look back at the things done for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles turning 30.

Happy Birthday TMNT! 2014 - Creation

On November 19th, 1983 Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the TMNT.  The two of them made history that day, by bringing characters to life who would soon touch the life of millions.  Little did they know the impact their artwork could have on the world.  

31 years since they were first drawn with so much done.  There are still many roads for the TMNT to take in the future!

Turtle Talk #12 : Interview with me

One of the great things on the internet is when the fandom comes together.   Here on Cowabunga Corner I highly encourage people to check out the other TMNT blogs and forums out there as every site has something new and fun to share.  Here is one of these crossovers where the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles podcast “Turtle Talk” interviewed me for their blog.

In this interview I share my thoughts on a lot of different areas of TMNT.  Enjoying talking about the movies, cartoons and comics.  Also sharing some personal stories from my past and why I feel the way I do about different areas of Ninja Turtles.  This was a really fun interviews with a lot of great questions!

Review: Free Comic Book Day 2014 by Babzilla

 

Review: Free Comic Book Day 2014

Every year Comic Book fans have a day that stands out above any other.  This day helps introduce people to new comics, brings communities closer together.  Gets creators out to meet their fans.  All while bringing happiness to the comic fans who gather for this day of fun and excitement.  Free Comic Book day.  In 2013 I reviewed two awesome gatherings that took place on the Holiday.  This year I only went to one, though for an important moment in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history.  Here is my review of “Free Comic Book Day” 2014.

Random Collection #33

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 about Fugitoid 2009 Playmates Vacuum Sealed figure.

Cowabunga Corner 112: Review of TMNT 1

Welcome to episode 7 of Cowabunga Corner Season 5.  In this episode I give my review of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.  For me this is my favorite movie, as I love the plot, characters and the costumes.  The costumes were amazing in this film as Jim Henson is one of the best artist.  This is why I think they need to do more live action films with the Henson Company.
