IDW's TMNT: Summer of the Turtles

TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman is joined by writers Tom Waltz, Erik Burnham, Aubrey Sitterson, Ulises Fariñas, and Erick Freitas and special guest Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai to discuss the events of IDW's biggest summer of TMNT publishing ever! Moderated by editor Bobby Curnow.

https://comiccon2017.sched.com/event/BP6A/tales-of-the-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles

I really hope that we will learn the details of the "pair them up with some other characters once again by the end of the year (https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/37489/icv2-interview-idws-chris-ryall-sarah-gaydos)" that Chris Ryall was talking about.

Will there be a podcast or post on YouTube? This is the SDCC news I have been waiting for. I for one want to know if this potential 1987 cartoon crossover will be unveiled that was teased to me at the Heroes Con.

Agreed. This year we got 12 regular monthly issues, 12 regular Universe issues, the Free Comic book day issue, the 5-issue Dimension X special, the TMNT/Usagi crossover, now 5 Ghostbuster crossovers, and even the Nick animated comic had new stuff with the Robotanimals mini.

IDW damn near put out nearly 60 TMNT comics in 2017 alone. Goddamn.

I do believe IDW is only doing this to prepare us for the glory of the year when they announce a new 4- or 5-week mini every single month alongside the main title, Universe, FCBD issue, and the odd special or crossover. If they announced something like that out of nowhere, with no proper build-up of immunity, we'd all promptly drop dead at once from collective diarrhea exploding out of our noses. They're smart enough to keep their customer base alive, they are... :tcool:

The only question is, will that be in 2018 or 2019? :D

Oh yeah, and I forgot #75 is a double issue, with 40 pages, so that's technically "13 regular issues" in 2017, if you count it like that.

I do imagine they might slow down in 2018 though, you can't very well outdo yourself every year.

That crossed my mind, but then wouldn't it feel a little repetitive? I can imagine the team wanting to break new ground and explore other possibilities. And it's in November, fresh off Halloween, so there could be a bit more of a spooky vibe to that.

The last crossover featured a Turtles villain, maybe this one will skew more in favor of the Ghostbusters?

I am surprised Darius Dunn is not done with. I thought his red shirt purpose had been fulfilled. Could not see this one coming. Darius could not accomplish this one his own. We all think Chi-You is involved somehow Could he be the one who empowers Darius to be able to do this? If not him then what Ghostbusters villain? There is Gozer, Stay Puft The Marsh Mellow Man, Vigo The Carpathian and I would not know who else. Of course it would not be Stay Puft,but what about Gozer or Vigo?

As a variant collector I am very worried about having to handle 2 5 week events in one year. At first I was underwhelmed because well, we already got a Ghostbuster cross over, but now that I think about it the story does make a lot of sense and I think it will be a good fit. This is probably how Chi-You get's back into our comic's universe.

Was this the only announcement they made at Comic Con? I thought they showed a couple of different covers and teased a bit about what to expect in Universe and the Ongoing series last year..

As a reader of IDW's Ghostbusters series, I dig the implications of including the Dark Turtles. It might be a form taken by the Collectors, who appear as evil duplicates of their victims before kidnapping them into the netherworld (they previously took the guise of the Peoplebusters). The advertisement blurb mentions the Turtles being trapped in a ghostly dimension, so that seems like a cinch.

A pretty awesome way to put them in the series.

Yep, you can see Leo's eye piece and Mikey's tongue on the ones on the bottom, I guess the others are Don's and Raph's head spikes, Don's on the right due to the longer spikes and Raph's on the left.

When it comes to IDW getting the Sonic license, I'm less interested in any crossover than I am in the direction of the Sonic comic itself.

I've never really read Archie's Sonic comics, but I know the general idea is that it was essentially a tie-in to those early Sonic cartoons that ended up running long after they were cancelled. As such, it was full of characters and weird concepts (like some "Planet of the Apes"/"Terminator"-fusion type setting) that have nothing to with the actual games, just a weird remnant of early marketing.

So are IDW going to bother using these things to please Archie Sonic's fanbase, or stick to what the games have established to give it a broader appeal? Maybe something in between?

The American comic book industry is largely built around recognisability, that is why Marvel and DC has such big market shares. IDW getting a lot licenses is probably just part of that strategy.

I'm guessing in between, something similar to what was done with the Turtles. Stick to the Sega Sonic stuff and world, but slowly integrate things from across the different media as it goes on. I'll be surprised if the characters used by Archie that Sega owns don't show up at some point, even if it's as some kind of side team in the world.

It's between IDW and Dark Horse. Prior to recent years, I'd have said that Dark Horse were the king. They've had the rights to Aliens, Predator and AVP for about as long as either have been in comic books. They had Robocop, Terminator and Army of Darkness for long stretches of time. The Star Wars license stuck with them for decades before the Disney acquisition. Conan's another of their mainstays. Buffy's been with them for a long time, including all the spin-offs there. Avatar: The Last Airbender hit comics through them.

It's only in the last ten years or so that IDW's started acquiring licenses and putting them to good use.

Question is how much of the archie lore they can actually use if they wanted to. While it's true the series was originally based on the sonic cartoons and mostly the Saturday morning one it eventually kind of spun out and became it's own thing with original characters and ideas while adating the games every once and awhile.I stopped reading it years ago but last I heard there was a big legal issue with one of the main writers that lead to them having to reboot the whole series to be closer to the games. A lot of the stuff that defined Archie's sonic might be off limits because of that

Very little, I'd imagine, since Sonic Chronicles using ideas from Ken Penders time with the Archie comic is what kicked off the entire lawsuit to begin with. It wasn't even over use of any characters, since they didn't carry any over to the game, directly anyway. It's probably too much of a risk. Whether that's a bad thing is up to individual opinion.
