TMNT Are Back! That's a Fact, Jack!

Oh dear goodness, I do love me some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You know how you love certain cartoons as a kid and then you grow up and twenty years later suddenly remember it and smile? I sure as heck don't. I've carried my love for them throughout the 80's, 90's, the..whatever-the-heck-we're-calling the-past-decade (the Noughties? meh), and today. Just like a classic hits radio station. I won't let them die.

How could I not like them? It was inevitable:
  • I'm a leader
  • I love machines
  • I'm cool
  • a weeeeeee bit sarcastic. Ya know, just maybe a tad...rude.
  • Who's a party dude? This gal!
So it's not my fault. They catered to some of the many sides of Shellie perfectly.

I'm that girl that gets excited by seeing a manhole cover slightly out of place. And heaven forbid I see a trashcan with "Cation" tape around it- I assume it's a barrel of ooze.

I reached cartoon nirvana sometime this past year when I saw Turtles Forever on television.  They combine the old-school Turtles with the new group. Sounds totally lame? I thought it would be, too, until they used the entire thing to make fun of themselves. I had bought my copy off of Amazon before Shredder even got a chance to make an appearance.

Since then, I've been combing comic shops looking for the original TMNT comics. Okay, fine, maybe I've been doing it since way before then. But it lit a fire under my butt. No success yet. But luckily I'll soon have something to keep me sated while I search.

Read Boyfriend's blog on the NEW TMNT comics.  I'd be pissed they were redoing them if they didn't look soooooooooooooooo awesome.
