A longtime forum lurker emerges...
Hello All! I've been hanging around these forums for quite a while, appreciating the thoughts from and news provided by Turtles fans old and new. I've been contemplating joining for a while to voice my opinions, but someone normally chimes in after a bit with something similar to what I'd have to say, so retreat back into anonymity didst I, where I can say words like 'didst' to myself.

But I'm here now, to share my butchery of language with everyone.

A pretty usual TMNT origin story: Fell into it in the Fred Wolf years as a kid, and maintained the obsession via the Archie comics, and whatever Mirage back issues I could stumble into (I was pretty unaware of standalone comic shops back then, and just bought what I found on spinner racks at the mall, or gas stations, etc.). I was always pretty upfront and proud about my Turtles fandom, though I wasn't cool enough to keep up with Mirage volume 2, or the Image series. Jump forward some decades, early 00s, when I became an active Wednesday comic shopper, I was lucky enough (in my eyes) to see volume 4 of the comic when it started up, and the 2003 animated series, and I've been an active collector / viewer since then, going back and filling in my collection with the stuff I missed.

I'm iffy on the quality of the current IDW series, and half-in / half-out on Rise, but I like watching the churn and evolution of the brand, especially now alongside the stuff this forum has helped me to find - fan projects like Origin and whatnot.

Long intro done. tl;dr: Hello!

Welcome. I was a lurker too since 2002 until I registered about half a decade ago.

Greetings comrade!
Is always good to know that more people come here.
I see you are pretty knowledged about the TMNT, probably even more than me, if you want to talk or ask questions about the forum and stuff, write here or send me a private message so I can help as much as I can!

Enjoy your permanence here in the forum!
