The book that launched the black & white boom of the 1980’s, spawned a thousand imitators, spun off into every conceivable media, and taught millions of kids the names of four Renaissance artists is the subject of this week’s episode.
While Mike and Greg are ostensibly looking at the “Return to New York” arc of the Mirage-era Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, like everything else Turtles-related, the talk mutates into a green-skinned juggernaut. Find out how the IDW continuity tracks with the original Mirage series, which creator did what on any issue, what prompted the ‘Guest Creator’ era, why there are some issues IDW can’t reprint, and just how much greenbacks Eastman & Laird were making during their heyday.
