Maybe people on here should be respectful of one another's opinions, then you wouldn't need to ask for that to happen?

It also brought back the "gritty" nature it had, which was the original appeal to the brand. What's there not to like about it?

There are things to like about it too, but these are legit reasons why it's not for everyone or even every Mirage TMNT fan.
I really need to sit down and read it properly but yeah, the first and last points you mentioned aren't my cup of tea.

sure there are majorities of certain preferences.
but personal tastes are that of the individual.
Couldn't agree more.

You have it backwards. The idea was that maybe some guest spots by established Image characters would help the Image TMNT series sell, which it wasn't doing. Not the other way around.

I actually don't think they took the idea far enough. A big, say, Spawn or WildCATS or something crossover with TMNT might have saved the ship. A lot of people didn't even know a TMNT comic was going on.

You probably hit the nail on the head.

There aren't a lot of plausible reasons, so I am quite likely right.

Only other possibility is on the spectrum somewhere, but that seems like more of a stretch... Occam's Razor, and all that.

Simplest explanation is only Thursdays because only Thursdays are available.

Toxic levels of Fred Wolf poisoning of the brain.

Another thought, could it be Gobo under a different name, come to visit us on his rec day in prison?

That does make more sense, but I'm still not fond of seeing the Turtles pal around with Blood-Gun, and Dark-Blood, and Blood-Guts, and Blood-Skull, and Dark-Skull, and Blood-Blood and the other Liefeldian monstrosities that populate the Image universe.

You're right though that Spawn was white-hot back then and a TMNT/Spawn crossover would have been good from a business perspective.

The one 90s Image hero I really respect though is The Maxx (I like Spawn too, but as a guilty pleasure). Now, a TMNT/Maxx crossover is something I could really get behind. Even now, it would still be a neat idea.

Alright, pferreira, I know you're reading this. What's your excuse?

Because it's very odd that he would post on thursdays and only thursdays, especially for something as casual as a forum. It's literally every single thursday too, not a thursday once in a while, not mainly thursdays, not a few posts on a thursday. Every single thursday he seems to make this huge batch of posts and then wait a week to do another.

It's not typical behaviour of someone who has control over his internet access, that coupled with all the projecting and inability to understand what people are telling him is what lead Cylons suspicions.

Keep in mind, this is what Cylons thinks, I just want to see if the guy can defend himself.

I'll admit it's a little odd..

but it's just an odd thing to focus on at all .

I dunno...maybe i've got more things to worry about .
