Review: Toy Fair 2013

In the Mid 1990's, I started to learn that there was a value to collecting Turtle Toys.  I remember that I was at Borders Books as my mom and dad had friends they would meet up with once a month and I would wander around looking for something to do with myself.  I decided to pick up a toy magazine was surprised to find a long list of toys and how much they are worth.  So I flicked through and found Ninja Turtles and realized just how much there is in the collection that I had even at that time.  My curiosity on this got me to start picking up toy magazines and doing so I learned about Toy Fair.

Review: IDW TMNT 18

TMNT18_cvrAIn December 1987 the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon came on with a five parter to introduce the world to characters created for a black and white comic book.  The producers, writers and directors decided to bring this cartoon into it’s own direction away from the dark dangerous characters of the comic world and turn them into a fun loving group with a lot of laughs. They introduced a lot of new characters throughout their long run on TV, most of which disappeared once the cartoon went off the air in 1996.  Nickelodeon and IDW is giving us promise to see these beloved characters again.

FanFic: The Day Raph Saw the Light

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan fiction. This is often one of the things that fans rely on when we get very little coming out for the Ninja Turtles. Back in the late 1990s, I would read and write TMNT fanfics. Though shortly after the 4Kids series aired in 2003, more TMNT fans appeared online and it became very, very hard for me to keep up with the different fanfics online. I would like to share a few of these fanfics here on Cowabunga Corner. I'm going to start off with one of my shortest TMNT fanfics. It's been updated with my improved writing skills and my editor. This story is all told by Raphael's point of view and if I lined up my stories in a timeline, this would be one of the later ones.

Review NYC Comic Con 2012

New York Comic Con is one of those events that you either really enjoy or not.  And since the first one, I have made it a goal to get to New York Comic Con yearly.  This event has almost as much as San Diego International Comic Con for the fans.  Actually, it has one thing going for it that San Diego does not.  It is for the fans, meaning fans are put first.  Making it a much more relaxing event.  Even though they have big crowds, exciting panels and an impressive dealer room, they have been able to keep it down to earth and very friendly.  The big question is, have they been able to keep this feel as the convention grows?

Hey everyone,

Movie Review: Madagascar 3

In 2005 a series of movies started, it was just seen as another CGI film at the time about zoo animals.  These zoo animals get in trouble and are shipped away from their home.  Their goal was to try and find away home.  Though things got rough and they were trapped at their new home.  One of the big draws for this movie was the star list of voice actors they had and of course that the movie is from DreamWorks made it very appealing for moviegoers as well.  Who would have guessed that this film would get two sequels and even a spin-off CGI series?   This week, their third film comes to theaters!
