Electric Boogaloo: Notes
1 February 2010 Leave a comment
The following is one of several key stories in the narrative I have in my head. Not only does it re-introduce Elisa Maza eight years after we last saw her, it helps elaborate on how the Manhattan crime world shifted from that of the Dracons to the one in TMNT, with the Purple Dragons and Foot as the main forces. The title is solely so I can call a sequel Electric Boogaloo 2: Electric Boogaloo.
Story: Electric Boogaloo
Synopsis: With the Shredder apparently dead and his forces severely weakened, the different forces in New York’s underworld have begun warring for the remains of his criminal empire. After a particular skirmish leaves more than a dozen people dead, the N.Y.P.D. organizes a detail tasked with bringing the situation under control.
Setting: New York City, May 2004-July 2004, several months before the events of “City at War“.

Credit where credit is due: Special thanks go to Tristan Huw Jones (again), since Gordon Miller, Paul Whitmire, Jack “Diamondback” Trent, and Lauren Staton are all his characters. If you haven’t done so already, read his Tales of the TMNT stuff: issues 36, 50, 56, 59, 61, and 64. It’s good stuff.
Final note: Given that the story is still very much in development, updates on it will be on every Monday.
