Evil Geek Book Report -Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Volume 1

Like most children of the 1980’s I consumed all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles related.  The cartoon, the toys, the video games…pretty much anything I could get my hands on except the comic books. I was just a little too young to know that there was life before the animated kids show. When I found out that IDW acquired the comic book rights to the original Mirage Studio output I knew I had to get in there and check it out.

I started with the lavish Ultimate Edition Vol. 1 hardcover containing the first seven issues of the run plus the Micro-Series #1 – Raphael (a self-contained story that fits in between issues #3 and #4). The art is blown up and printed in its original black and white state and after each issue there is a write up by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird discussing what was going on at that point in their publishing life. Plus, there’s almost a page by page write up about the art from the issue and the layouts. It’s a hefty ticket price of $50 dollars for 8 issues, but it’s a wealth of information.

So, I Sat Through Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Sometimes I wonder if the MTV series Jackass had more of an impact on me than I would like to admit. I say this not because Johnny Knoxville did the voice of Leonardo in the movie I’m about to discuss, but rather because I watched this film as a sort of lighthearted self-mutilation. Thankfully, my girfriend shares my fondness for the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and movies as well as my  inexplicable attraction toward terrible movies. Very often, when I know a movie is going to be awful, I get just as excited about seeing it as I do when I know it will be fantastic. This is one falls into the former category, there was absolutely nothing indicating this movie would be watchable and yet we went and saw it opening night (we’re not entirely masochistic, it was a double feature at the drive-in with Guardians of the Galaxy… sort of like lukewarm piss with an ice cold lemonade chaser). And boy, oh boy… it was everything we’d thought it would be and so much less!
