"Origin"





Just talked it over with Jim Lawson and we'll be revving things up soon on a new graphic novel project in the vein of "Odyssey" called "TMNT: Origin." It's Mirage TMNT-based. Jim is drawing it.

It's going to be heavy sci-fi. Donatello, a Triceraton, Leatherhead, Jhanna (remember her?), and Dr. X (the Utrom) board a spacecraft specifically built to travel to the center of the universe to unlock the secrets of the beginning of all life from the wellspring of the Big Bang. For Donatello, this is more personal: it means unlocking -- potentially -- the truth behind he and his brothers' apparently accidental creation.

Their journey across space is vast and there are unexpected discoveries along the way. And surprise guests. And answers.

The trailer:

O wow, this is very very very exciting news! If you need help with anything, I'd be happy to help.

Will you use indiegogo again for funding?

At this rate they'll be a whole series of Andrew Modeen TMNT comics. This is what, comic #5?

I wonder where the funds are coming from.

Forgot to mention Jhanna... she's a lead in it too. Remember her?

Also, this will be in full color from Sabacooza/Courtland Brugger. There's going to be too much crazy stuff going on in this that would be diminished if in B&W.

Right on Andrew! This sounds awesome, reminds me of a sort of Star Wars type of adventure. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Predator crossover to be finished. Thanks in advance for all the hard work that goes into putting these projects together, you da man.

It's really more 2001: A Space Odyssey than it is Star Wars. But it's Turtles, so of course there will be some action too. The fun part will be the interaction between Donatello, (away from his brothers) and his colleagues and how they have to learn to operate together as a team amidst some of the biggest cosmic forces and beings in existance.

It's kind of like, with the Image finisher it was a fairly gritty balls to the walls ninja actioner. With Odyssey, it goes balls deep into time travel with a smattering of the multiverse too. With TMNT vs. Predator it's more of a thinking man's cat and mouse game where they are truly presented with a superior opponent. Origin, it's an all-out sci-fi outer space adventure with a touch of what you might call the supernatural. So kind of covering all the bases.

That sounds way too awesome!

Also, I found out about Odyssey too late. If there is a way to buy a physical copy of the book, when it is done, then I am in! .

And I think others are to
