Default Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - IDW Continuity

I figured I'd start a thread to discuss the IDW continuity of the Turtles.

No this is pretty much a reboot, and the only ongoing TMNT comics right now.

When Mirage was bought out by Nickelodeon, the main continuity is now dead. But the problem with the Mirage books was the delays and the crazy prices. I thought I saw an issue for like 10 dollars once.

Then there was the Dreamwave series that was defunct years ago; that was based on the 2003 cartoon.

I am in love with this series. I wish that Bay and Co. would look at this comic for reference material for the movie.

8 issues and 3 micro-series issues in and I think it's that good. It puts in elements from all previous TMNT incarnations in a more 'respectable' manner. You still have the awesome personalities from the 90s but the tone of the late 80s intact at the same time. Everything seems to be more intelligently planned and webbed together, too.

Just finished the 8 issues up to now, and man do I love this series! I agree with trustyside in that Liebesman should definitely take inspiration from this

I'm really liking this series. It's like " Ultimate Ninja Turtles ". I just don't like the art work. I would love to see Kevin Eastman,Lesean Thomas, Micheal Dooney, or A.C. Farley take over the artwork. I know Kevin is just doing the layouts, and a few covers, but I think its time he got back on the saddle.

I think you mean Laird? Eastman is the writer. And I LOVE the art.

Nope, I meant Kevin. Laird wrote the last volume of the Mirage series, and I really didn't care too much for because of all of the sci/fi super hero elements he added. Kevin contributes on the story for IDW along with Tom Waltz, but Waltz mainly writes the script. Kevin mainly does the plots and lay outs. I want to see him dothe actual pencils .

OK, finally caught up on the new IDW run. I have to say it's a pretty good read. I don't even mind the reincarnation cycle. The only nitpick I have, is that their Transformation happened only 15 months ago, instead of 15 years.

This series is pretty cool. I love how they take bits from every incarnation of the Turtles and updates it. Love seeing the Turtles in our time. Also dig how the story unravels, in a slow way and always making sure to keep the characters developing.

The way they segued into colored head-bands was cool too as is the updated more serious versions of Bebop and Rocksteady. Tone of the original comics with a touch of Fred Wolf ideas and designs.

What I don't like that much is the look of Splinter and the rushed 15 months origin.

Both the art and writing is solid while nothing amazing or anything. As a fan of the first live-action TMNT movie I also think this series could use a little more goofy fun, if just a little.

Though I gotta say I dig the origin idea in itself. The mix of reincarnation and science.

I just picked up the first volume from the new IDW series. Heard great things about it and been wanting to get into some TMNT stuff for awhile now.

Can't wait for the Leo one-shot, should be very badass and dramatic.

Also this version of the cover is fantastic:

Just read the first volume of the new TMNT... I'm digging it. I'm definitely going to keep picking up the volumes. May pick up the Ultimate Collection of the older TMNT comics. Anyone recommend them?

YES !!!! PLEASE DO!!! Thats was when the turtles were grim and gritty bad asses. Also pick up copies of Archie's " Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures ". That was also a pretty good series. It combined the humour of the 87 toon with the tone of Mirage.

Eastman's covers have been a highlight of this series for me.

I wish he was doing the art too. All those issues of Mirage that Jim Lawson was credited for back in Volume 1... Eastmen inked them and he pretty much re-drew them to match his style. I used to think of Lawson as the ultimate TMNT artist until I found out all his work that I ended up hating and wondering what the hell went wrong was because Eastman wasn't inking.

I loved the moment with the memory of his mother and the woman in the building...but overall this Leonardo Spotlight issue in the Micro Series was the weakest. Too fast paced so felt so short. Barely any dialogue or internal dialogue. And his "banter" against the Foot was rather...stupid with the things he was saying feeling so random.

4 Issues in and loving it so far and I always go for the Eastman covers!
The Donatello mini series issue was really good aswell, kinda made me make him my favourite one now. "To me my bo staff."

Just gotta wait till they 'eat a slice' and then my nostalgia will go into overload! :P

Im really loving this series so far, it does have it stinker moments such as there explanation as to why Casey just accepts who Raph is. But overall its been very intriguing and has kept me interested to see what happens next at the end of each issue.

I keep telling people this is the best comic book right now. I mean it's freakin Ninja Turtles! Eatman and Laird are the guys that lived the dream. I know that Eastman was always more open to some of the goofier stuff from the cartoon and Venus from Next Mutation. I think We're in completely the best hands we could ever be in. He's he only guy that could mix everything together in a big pot and come out with so many awesome things.

I remember IDW teaseing a while ago about an Eastman solo Annual and I really hope it happens. That would be epic as hell!

This is by far one of the best comics out there right now. It is hands down one of the best versions of the TMNT to date. If you haven't read them yet you need to find the trades and pic them up.

I have to say, we've gotten like what? 18 issues total? And so far the only complait I have is that the Splinter Mirco is supposed to take place during issue 11. I just hate when they do things like that, but thats just personal taste.

Everything else hase been bloody fantastic!
