He claims he has forgotten the whole story. Seriously.

Well considering it was originally supposed to come out in 1995, which is now over 22 years ago, along with Murphy reaching old age (isn't he over 60 now?), I wouldn't be surprised if he forgot everything about it.

Feels weird to me. I can remember everything I've ever written or the ideas of things I was GOING to write, going back to middle school.

Man at this point, there's no way that Forever War can live up to expectations. I think for the sake of having it I would like to see it eventually come to be, but I don't know how much I would enjoy it considering how ling I've been waiting for it

I think, if anything, IDW should simply take the title and use it for a similar IDW-based story.

But then, the Archie diehards would probably be disappointed and a little bitter, which isn't at all unfair...

So which do we think is more likely to happen? TMNTA "The Forever War" or a conclusion to Mirage TMNT "Volume 4?"

Definitely The Forever War.

I remember Bobby saying they wouldn't do a Vol 4 conclusion as it was Peter Laird's to finish and at this point that looks unlikely. I mean maybe his stance will change one day but I wouldn't count on it any time soon. The Forever War is likely to come up more as they're getting near to the end of the main TMNTA reprints.

as much as i'd love to see Mirage Tmnt and IDW Tmnt meet, it's probably better to leave the idea alone.

it'd be extremely difficult to live up to everyone's expectations.

better not to risk mucking it up.

Not for me, I see the IDW run as something of an extension or reboot of the Mirage series in particular.

That's not even remotely true, though.

IDW TMNT is no more a reboot of Mirage than any of the cartoons, Archie, the movies, etc.

I vote no. I just don't see the point. They're quite similar in style and storytelling. Not enough differences between them I feel.

No, pretty much worlds apart in that. Visually similar in style to some of the Tales of the TMNT V2, maybe.

Yeah, definitely not. You'd need a very shallow way of thinking to call them "quite similar".

Tonally the same right? Art style the same right? Storytelling almost the same?

Quite similar then.

You're a known retard, but I'm honestly shocked that you're actually this befuddled.

No. IDW has already been influenced by the other non-Mirage TMNT to such an extent that an actual cross-over with Mirage TMNT would seem just plain wrong.

Personally I love crossovers but I would like there to be serious serious thought on the part of everyone involved. Crossovers for the sake of crossovers tend to be mediocre at best. But maybe the beginning or possibly an expansion of a TMNT multiverse?

I'd rather see the IDW Turtles eventually encounter a whole slew of elsewhere/What If?-style TMNT crews, that have never been seen before.

Give us a set of noir Turtles, steampunk Turtles, magic Turtles, pirate Turtles, whatever

Noir and steampunk sound fun.

We've kinda already had pirate Turtles in Turtles in Time #3, though.
