Plug: My review for “TMNT Adventures” Volume 2
13 February 2013 1 Comment
If it sometimes seems like new posts are slow in coming, it’s because I currently have a bunch of stuff on my plate. Not only am I working and might get a second job, I am also now writing reviews of comic book trade paperbacks for the Trade Paperback Reading Order, which, given me, is a rather time consuming endeavor.
Sometimes, though, that bit of business happens to be relevant to the interests of this blog. For example, my latest review, of the second volume of IDW’s Archie comics collections.
With the Ninja Turtles currently undergoing yet another renaissance, it’s nice to revisit its past to see what one can learn from it. Recently, I’ve realized that a huge part of what makes the TMNT work for me is the weirdness, a love for Concepts That Make You Go “!” and makes the works interesting even when the stories aren’t terribly good. On those terms, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures: Volume 2 succeeds admirably: not only does it feature solid stories, it stands as a testament of the wide variety of stories that can be told with these characters.
Go give it a look-see!
