View Full Version : TMNT Archie Series "Year of the Turtle"
Yo dudes and dudettes,
I am wondering if any of you out there have/have seen/read #3 of Archie's "Year of The Turtle" Series? I REALLY wanna know what happens and I have a sickening feeling that #3 may not have been published... *whine*

I MIGHT know... what series was that? the one where they had the stone that demutated Splinter and Mike? cuz if it is, i DO know. But i'll have to tell you when i get back on sunday...

I think I might have a copy in a really bad condition. Dunno where it is though (assuming I'm thinking of the right series). Did it come out around 96 or 97?
OMG! DEMUTATED SPLITNER *AND* MIKEY? *whines* nooooooo!!! NOT RATBOY TOO! Yeah, it's that one.. the one where that guy is telling the little boy a story, I think it came out in 1996
04-07-2002, 03:50 PM
Okay, I DO know the ending!!!!
Well, Splinter and Mike Both got demutated. Splinter for a few days, Mike for a few minutes. The stone had done the demutations.
Well, in the last few pages of the last part, it turns out that it is actually Master Splinter (human form) telling the story to Michaelangelo, who's sitting in the bed.
Splinter finishes and goes out to see the others. Mike's body is mutated again to mutant form thanks to the stone, but his mind is that of a young child's and would undoubtedly take time to return to his former self. Splinter told them that he was also going back into his rat form. He showed his *incredibly sexy and well-muscled* arm, showing the rathair growing back.
That was the last comic i had ever seen until the past few weeks. It made me cry in the shop n' save...I had never been so sad over a story.
OOOOOOOOHHHH!! ME WANT!!! poo.. mandy was right on the end of it.. it sound TOOO FABOOOO! :grin: ME WANT! If anyone has an extra copy, I'd pay for it! (and mach, I'd pay for kinko copies of that comic, as well as some money for your trubble if you'd be willing)
~Mica (ME WANT! *whines and goes back to making turtle dance*)

Oh, I dont have it, but ive remembered it all these years. It was to most powerful piece of writing ive ever read. I remember more about that than the Hamlet stuff we did in high school!
I would love to have a copy of it!
Hehehe, MONEY?! *evil glint* Well, i DID have to put myself through some emotional pain to remember it... :evilgrin:
04-08-2002, 05:36 PM
That is indeed the comic I have... somewhere.
Now I want to go find it.
04-08-2002, 07:59 PM
Oh yeah.. this was a comic Lisardo had. She let me read it one time. Yeah... and SPlinter's telling Mikey about how they defeated the Power Rangers and then go on this trip to Mongolia and surf in the snow. Very unusal plot indeed!
04-08-2002, 08:00 PM
Yeah, but you gotta love it! :smile:
04-08-2002, 08:02 PM
Man.. Lisa's got all the stuff I want. :razz: (wonders if she had found her way to this message board yet)
04-08-2002, 08:14 PM
That series is the fourth i had read of the Archie series. I also had read the moon-eyes series.
I think one of the moon eyes saga was one of the first archies I read... Then I got a BUNCH of them after a bit and read a TON of them at once... :wink: hee hee... if anyone could get me a copy of #3 of the year of the turtle trilogy tho, it'd be GREATLY appreciated...

I have the Blind-Sight Series, and then the first early ones that were based off the cartoon. Then somoneone got me a special run that had Stan Sakai do most of the art.
oohhh a run where Stan Sakai did most of the work?? Tell me more about!! Please!! I want to read! :smile:
I loved the blindsight series, it just soooo well written and is really emotional. That Mikey jumps into the water and saves that guy is just so... Mikey! And Raph saying something along the lines of "let him drown" then in the aftermath with the reporters saying "say something, Mickey!" and he turns, and in a very mikeyish style, smiles big and says "Cowabunga"... *sai* it's a series I never tire of reading :smile: Nyar Mikey!
Man, I seriously, seriously need to get my hands on more Archies. The only ones I have are early ones, from just after they branched off from the cartoon, in collected books. Oh, and issue #50.
04-09-2002, 01:55 PM
*happily reads her Archies and awaits her Motherlode in the mail* :grin:
I love Blindsight. THe first time i read it, I bought the one with mike's pic on the front.
For some strange reason, Im thinking that there were an issue or two that had mike reminiscing about stuff that had happened in their childhood. Something about a Broken vase and the color diferentiation, and The boys working together to cheat on some tests, but Splinter finds out and sets it up to look like Mike had flunked all the others on the spelling test, and the y all eventually get caught.
Does anyone else remember, or am i losing some more of my sanity?
04-09-2002, 01:59 PM
*blink* *blink* (wonders if this one comic store still has any Archies left)
broken vase? I don't remember that part, but yeah, blintsight had the reminising of Mikey on when they were younger and how the differnt colored masks came about... I love that one! Such good lines, like "If we're a singing group, I'm the cute one" "but which of us is the walrus?" (refranceing beatles 4 those who don't know) and wittle raphie running away on all 4s from the bad guy is BEYOND adorable! wierd thing is it's mike reminicing, but master splinter is telling some postlog of the story during it. That issue also has a pinup wit the little archie tmnt :wink:
Come to think of it, that wasn't in blindsight, it was right BEFORE it. I still don't know what FULLY happened and how mike got caught, I'm missing part 2 of the terricide series tho.. DANG IT! want more slash!!(the turtle, you dirty minded little forumees!)
~Mica (ahhh memories)
04-09-2002, 10:10 PM
I want those ones SO BAD!!!!!!!!!
Well, Mike got blinded by a molotov cocktail while fighting some evil demon thing in Jerusalem. Mike jsut happemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time...I hate the US Government!
I want to get those So much! Especially the poster! :grin:
Slash...he was killed according to Don when he told the story in the second issue of the Blindsight series.
Hey, Anyone ever read the Black hole trilogy?!?!?! I heard that one looks bck at their past as well...
Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts.

Well, i *AM* going to the comic book store today, I could take a notebook along and write down what archie backissues they have... then if anyone wants them, I'll only charge you the comic book store price plus shipping (usually about $1 bookrate within the US)
The black hole trilogy has them looking into thier past? I don't think so.. but I think I'm missing one comic of that series... What about the future shark trilogy? That ones cool because it's the first one with the future TMNT woo hoo! I *LOVE* the look on future Don's face when he says that he just plugged the time portal in to power it this time and he can't wait to see this month's electricity bill... *G* hee hee. Now if I had only read the archie series, and nothing else, I think I would be a Don/Raph fan because of all the good scenes with future Don and Raph. (Not to say Future Mike isn't cool, but they don't show him much)
04-10-2002, 10:41 AM
...black hole trilogy... black hole trilogy...? Gee, I think Lisa has some issues from that too, cause it sounds awfully familiar! Hrmm.., you guys have me wanting to swing by that one excellent comic store this weekend too! :razz:
04-10-2002, 10:51 AM
Man, I wish there was a comic store around here somewhere!
Oh well, I'm just gonna continue waiting for my ebay stuff! woohoo, Im getting some comics!!!! *happy dance*
What comics are you getting thru ebay? :smile: I got a signed Michealangelo Xmas special, and I love it... but I've been tempted by a lot of ebay comics... I'm gonna wait til I finsih catagorizing my comics, and get a list of what I have so I don't double up accidentlly.
04-10-2002, 11:02 AM
hehehe, this is what i'm getting, hopefully in a few days...
TALES OF THE TMNT #1,6.
TMNT #12, 13, 18, 22, 32.

nOt bad, eh/ I also got a reprint of the first mirage comic, and a really wierd Archie one...
Grunts #1, ey? never heard of that.. the Tales of TMNT are REALLY cool :smile: Me rally like!!
04-10-2002, 11:37 AM
Heh.. haven't heard of Grunts either. But I do have both version of Turtle Soup #1. :smile:
Both versions? You mean they are the two differnt comics called Turtle Soup by Mirage right? with differnt covers and differnt stories in each? or is there an alternate turtle soup cover I don't know about?
04-10-2002, 11:43 AM
Hopefully, if i play my times right, It was sent out the first weekend of April from La, so it should reach maine this week, right?
04-10-2002, 02:39 PM
There were two entirely different runs of Turtle Soup #1. I forgot the whole story behind it, but the first one was run as a special in 1987, then some time went by and they ran Turtle Soup as the 4 set series in 1991.
And yeah.. usually it takes 7-10 days for something form one side of country reach the other side... unless they sent it the super cheap, super slow book rate. :razz:
Ok, good. that's what I thought, HT. ANyway, I visited my comic store today, and I picked up Grunts #1! Wooo! haven't read it yet, been busy reading my new X-mens... anyway I wrote down the archies they have, and most of them are around $2 (some less, some more) I will be willing to buy these for anyone who wants (machy?) and ship them to them and I won't charge any fees beyond the comic book store price and the price of shipping (not handling, i have plenty of leftover envelopes :wink:) Here's the list:

Speaking of the Archies series, I just bid on a 13 comic lot on ebay! Weee.....let's just hope I don't run into any more bad karma.
*offers a mango of sacrifice to the great turtle gods*
04-12-2002, 09:18 PM
#45...is that a "Splinter's view of the turtles when they were growing up" kind of story? This remembering of the color story(it involves a vase somehow) and the cheating on the schooling lessons is driving me bonkers!
you were right, machy, i re-read it. The broken vase is at the very beginning. I forgot that part! :wink: "Mikey doed it!" "and which one of you is Michealangelo?" *all little turtles point at the others*
04-14-2002, 02:00 PM
I loved that scene. poor Splinter, no clue as who the guilty party was...I had a dream about that, but it had a very different ending.
04-14-2002, 06:58 PM
Aww man, the series you two are talking about sounds really interesting. I need to search for it. Ooh, btw, I just won 13 TMNT Archie comics for only $5.75! Weee!
*does the happy dance as his pile of TMNT comics grows*
04-14-2002, 07:00 PM
Yay! I should be getting mine this week!!!
*joins Azure in the 'thank the turtle gods, my collection is finally growing!' dance*
04-14-2002, 07:01 PM
Yes!! We rock!!
*does the 'Machias and Azure are finally smiled upon by the great turtle gods' dance*
04-18-2002, 03:04 AM
I have all the archie series
I liked the Cyber turtles
the ENTIRE series? now THATS cool :smile:
04-18-2002, 11:07 AM
Ohhh! Me! Me! Me!
I promise I won't back out of this one, and I'll also stick in the Mikey with stuffed teddy bear that I was drawing in Illustrator with the MO.... once I get don't with my nyarly final projects... and work... and going to Korea... :razz:
PS... love the Thundercats sig! :lol:
ok, cool HT. you know the drill, contact me by email, and we can work it out...
04-18-2002, 01:26 PM
Hey, since you happened to mentioned the young turtles thing, would you like to see the manip i did of a young turtle? Hopefully, Azure has the pic up on his site, but if not, i can send off copies...
ooohhh i wants to see! :smile: speaking of cute baby pics, here's a CUTE pic by miss mab of her turtle-type tyke "Mikelo"
adorable, ney? :grin:
~Mica (i wish i could draw like that...)
04-18-2002, 02:11 PM
hehehe, HT and Mica, check your mail...
Ooh, I LOVE her artwork! That is so cute.
04-18-2002, 02:13 PM
i think its absolutely adowable!!!! :grin:
04-18-2002, 02:27 PM
My lair has been updated.... :wink:
04-18-2002, 02:48 PM
:grin: Thanks, Azure! Loolaa's pic is cute, too! I love the style of her artwork...
04-18-2002, 10:03 PM
No, thank you :wink: I agree, I've always liked Loolaa's style of drawing. She says that Dan Berger's style was one of her biggest influences. I wish I could draw the toon turtles...
04-18-2002, 10:04 PM
I love her ice cream one, its so randomly funny, its just cute. :wink:
AWWWWW!!! MACHY! THAT IS ADORABLEEEEEE!! :grin: maybe you should give the hands some nails and fur looking, and then they can be splints!
As for Loolla's art.. i luv it! 'specially
her Image one :evilgrin:
04-19-2002, 11:36 AM
Thanks :grin:. I WAS trying to do that, but i only have MSpaint and photo editor to work with...fur is hard to draw!
I have more to come. I'm gonna have to learn how to do Splinter really good for two of the pics im planning to use....
04-19-2002, 02:37 PM
Then I suggest checking out your college PC labs, and see if they have Photoshop. You'll be amazed with the things you can do in there when it comes to photo manips!
*one of these days I'll get that preteen Mikey pic done...*
Oh, but Azure has more pics? Cool! The one Loolaa did for your pic is neat too. I also liked the paintball painting Kali did. Very good elements of contrast, for such a 'dramatic' situation. Gee... want me to draw something for ya now? :razz:

I've drawn ya, azure, and many of you other peeps in the forum (got a whole drawing pad filled that's not online or on my computer) but my scanner's busted *growls* EVIL HP THING! maybe someday when I pound the sh*t out of it and get it to work I'll scan some stuff in for you.
PhotoShop, ey HT? I've never used that... I use Paint Shop Pro... I think you might even be able to get it off http://www.shareware.com ... But I'm a hardcore MSPaint addict. It's everywhere I tell you! :wink: I get so fed up with other programs, they never look quite rite, so I end up fixing it in MS paint, only thing I use PSP for ever is layers and color changes.
04-19-2002, 04:09 PM
LOL! Wow, is everyone drawing me now? I'm so flattered... :goofygri:
04-19-2002, 08:48 PM
*singsong voice* I just downloaded Paint Shop! :grin:
I'm gonna play around and see what i can come up with...
04-20-2002, 10:14 AM
Heh.. yeah, there's another free shareware graphic editor called the Gimp that they have at school too. But it was so strange to figure out, I gave on using that.
I guess it's nature to go with what you know! Photoshop is the first thing I used, so I can't stand anything else! :razz:
