hi, sorry, for splitting this up, but it looked too enormous to me to put it in a single thread, so here is the rest of my Mirage Turtles Questionaires. no worries, the last two are much shorter;)


Questionaire #2:

1.) I love that the Turtles were made and published by such a small group of people.

2.) Somehow the Mirage artists feel as close to me as the Turtles.

3.) If I'd find another non-TMNT comic by the Mirage artists I'd happily read it.

4.) I feel like the Mirage artists are the only people able to capture the true spirit of these characters.


Questionaire #3:

1.) I felt like the Foot Clan was a frightening adversary to the Turtles.

2.) For me the Shredder was an important part in the Turtles evolution. It felt good to have him in the comics (in one form or another).

3.) I resented Baxter Stockman for what he did to April.

4.) I thought Donatello terminating the remains of Baxter Stockman was the right thing to do.

5.) I enjoyed the Triceratons appearance in the comics, but they were terrifying creatures.

6.) I felt sorry for the Triceraton commando ending their lives like that in Vol 2.
7.) I wished the Foot would have remained the Turtles' opponents in Vol 4.

8.) I hated the Shredder.

9.) I felt good about the Styracodons killing off so many Triceratons in their war.

answers below:

Questionaire #2:

1.) I love that the Turtles were made and published by such a small group of people.
Yes! The indy roots of the property are one of its most amazing traits.

2.) Somehow the Mirage artists feel as close to me as the Turtles.
no, I've only interacted with the artists on a convention level - I've seen much more of the emotional scope and day-to-day life of the turtles.

3.) If I'd find another non-TMNT comic by the Mirage artists I'd happily read it.
yes, I've collected many (none live up to the turtles though!)

4.) I feel like the Mirage artists are the only people able to capture the true spirit of these characters.
no

yes

3.) I resented Baxter Stockman for what he did to April.

yes, in a merciful manner

5.) I enjoyed the Triceratons appearance in the comics, but they were terrifying creatures.

Questionaire #2:

1.) I love that the Turtles were made and published by such a small group of people.
Yes, I think I spent more time reading interviews and articles about Pete, Kevin and the Mirage crew than reading the comics. Exciting stuff!

2.) Somehow the Mirage artists feel as close to me as the Turtles.
Yes, I think so.

3.) If I'd find another non-TMNT comic by the Mirage artists I'd happily read it.
I already do. Most recently I backed The Box City Wallops by Jim Lawson.

4.) I feel like the Mirage artists are the only people able to capture the true spirit of these characters.
Some writers come pretty close, like Rick Veitch.

Questionaire #3:

1.) I felt like the Foot Clan was a frightening adversary to the Turtles.
Yes.

2.) For me the Shredder was an important part in the Turtles evolution. It felt good to have him in the comics (in one form or another).
Yes.

3.) I resented Baxter Stockman for what he did to April.
Yes.

4.) I thought Donatello terminating the remains of Baxter Stockman was the right thing to do.
Yes. Usually I'm against killing, but what choice did Don have?

5.) I enjoyed the Triceratons appearance in the comics, but they were terrifying creatures.
Yes and yes.

6.) I felt sorry for the Triceraton commando ending their lives like that in Vol 2.
Yes, kinda.

7.) I wished the Foot would have remained the Turtles' opponents in Vol 4.
No, City at War was a great conclusion.

8.) I hated the Shredder.
No. While he was a threatening character I never hated him to the point that I wanted him to get written out of the story.

9.) I felt good about the Styracodons killing off so many Triceratons in their war.
No. It was interesting to see Mikey's dark side but war never makes me feel good.

1.) I love that the Turtles were made and published by such a small group of people.

It's not that small.

2.) Somehow the Mirage artists feel as close to me as the Turtles.

They're cool people. And I don't have any personal relationship with the Turtles.

3.) If I'd find another non-TMNT comic by the Mirage artists I'd happily read it.

Sure.

4.) I feel like the Mirage artists are the only people able to capture the true spirit of these characters.

No, but I'd trust them to.

1.) I felt like the Foot Clan was a frightening adversary to the Turtles.

I don't know if "frightening" is the right word.

2.) For me the Shredder was an important part in the Turtles evolution. It felt good to have him in the comics (in one form or another).

Yeah, Oroku Saki was great. The final fight with him in #21 is the best comic I've ever read.

3.) I resented Baxter Stockman for what he did to April.

He didn't do that much.

4.) I thought Donatello terminating the remains of Baxter Stockman was the right thing to do.

Maybe. Though I wished he'd kept him around a while first. Lots of storyline potential there voided.

5.) I enjoyed the Triceratons appearance in the comics, but they were terrifying creatures.

Not really terrifying. But formidable.

6.) I felt sorry for the Triceraton commando ending their lives like that in Vol 2.

If that even happened.

7.) I wished the Foot would have remained the Turtles' opponents in Vol 4.

Nah. Mirage TMNT doesn't need to be like every other comic ever.

8.) I hated the Shredder.

Nah.

9.) I felt good about the Styracodons killing off so many Triceratons in their war.

It was interesting.

Questionnaire #2:

1.) I love that the Turtles were made and published by such a small group of people.

Yes. Consistency is a beautiful thing.

2.) Somehow the Mirage artists feel as close to me as the Turtles.

Nope, not at all.

3.) If I'd find another non-TMNT comic by the Mirage artists I'd happily read it.

Nope, probably not.

4.) I feel like the Mirage artists are the only people able to capture the true spirit of these characters.

No, but I think they're the only ones ever allowed or able to tell adult stories with the TMNT. But for capturing the true spirit, I'll happily endorse the IDW creative team to share that credit.

Questionnaire #3:

1.) I felt like the Foot Clan was a frightening adversary to the Turtles.

No. Formidable and a genuine, recurring, personal threat. But frightening is not at all the word I would use.

2.) For me the Shredder was an important part in the Turtles evolution. It felt good to have him in the comics (in one form or another).

Yes. There is no TMNT without Oroku Saki.

3.) I resented Baxter Stockman for what he did to April.

Not really. Pretty devilish, though. Stockman plays the long game.

4.) I thought Donatello terminating the remains of Baxter Stockman was the right thing to do.

I thought it was an awesome character moment. Mirage Donnie is not to be trifled with; he ended Oroku Saki the first time as well as Baxter Stockman. Wish a single other version of TMNT would embrace his badassness.

5.) I enjoyed the Triceratons appearance in the comics, but they were terrifying creatures.

Dude. Your use of "frightening" and "terrifying" is a little... overblown.

Formidable and fierce, but they're too familiar to me. Just big horn-headed dinosaur Klingons.

6.) I felt sorry for the Triceraton commando ending their lives like that in Vol 2.

Nope. It's what any good Klingon--sorry, Triceraton--would do. Honor.

7.) I wished the Foot would have remained the Turtles' opponents in Vol 4.

Absolutely not. Evolution and character development; moving into a tenuous alliance that only became stronger over time was much more interesting.

8.) I hated the Shredder.

Nah; felt sorry for him. Must suck being resurrected as a worm colony.

9.) I felt good about the Styracodons killing off so many Triceratons in their war.

War is hell.

hello again compadres!

I want to thank you all for contributing to my questionaires!I didn't have as much space in my thesis to go into much detail from your answers (pretty interesting though from my topic's point of view), but I worked through all the answers and got out something that was interesting in correlation to my work.

thank you again!
by the way, I got chuckles out of it, I really used strong adjectives in one or two cases, but that was the intention;)

I am going to the printer now to get my thesis printed.

after a week doing nothing I really love to get back once again into reading ALL of mirage over again, they are such beautiful comics!:)
