you have no idea of the power that self created material has on you.none of us can actually really understands the bond peter and kevin share to their turtles I think. this has nothing to do with age here...pete could one day come around the corner and knock everyone and their sister out of the universe with a dramatic, organic and interesting turtles volume 4 continuation

He originally said the reason he took a break from Volume 4 was that he lost interest and didn't feel attached to the Turtles as much since the sale to Viacom in 2009. PL even said he never read most of the Tales of the TMNT issues that Mirage was still publishing at the time in the later half from 2006-2010.

If PL didn't even bother to read every comic published by his own company and fellow Mirage writers/artists, you can tell he wanted to distance himself from the property for awhile.

Like I said if he starts to get more exposure from conventions or press interviews it may reinvignorate his interest enough for him to something with Volume 4 even if it's taking part in the production of reprints.

I'd be really interested in a Mirage vol. 5 from Peter. I wish he could shake off all the cobwebs of volume 4 and give us another fresh take - a vision of how he see's tmnt these days. Like how Image and vol.4 felt when they started.

Not spitballing likely scenarios here, just what I'd be interested in.

I'd love to see a completion of V4 from Peter, then a V5 with him "heavily involved" (as would be required, per the 18 issue agreement with Nick) with new and/or old talent doing the "meat" of things. Kind of like Tales V2, but focused and linear and with planned-out story arcs.

Agreed. With Eastman involvement as well. Somebody bring back the dream team!

Once Peter and Kevin retire I don't think Mirage TMNT will continue in any form. And having new young writers trying to write in the Mirage universe would just feel wrong.

Did the Tristan Jones stuff feel wrong? Did the Ross May stuff seem wrong?

It was good, but it didn't feel much like Mirage TMNT, in any case. The Turtles were also written more similar to the modern (back in the early 2000's modern) style than feeling like the old 80's/90's style, if that makes any sense.

I just re-read all 70 Tales issues a few months ago, you'll be surprised how much "Cowabunga" is dropped, even by issues written by Jim Lawson or Murphy or Dan Berger.

I really hope Peter gets around to this. I don't want to find out one day that he died and that his epitaph reads, "He never finished Volume 4."

If and when he does get back in the saddle, I'm hoping he's more of a mind to create material that fans will want to read. I'm all for creative freedom and not being a slave to fan service, but volume 4 feels less like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more like just plain Turtles.

Considering he would just be wrapping up the current storylines, I don't see what you'd expect further. His role in the TMNT franchise is done.

Well as I keep saying, he's 63 years old. By the time he finishes Volume 4 if he ever does he'll be pushing 70. Unfortunately people don't live forever, and in his 70's I think he'd rather be enjoying the twilight years of his life rather than working on a comic.

hopefully it wouldn't take him that long if he got into it again. Also, 70 isn't that old. I know plenty of passionate 70 and even 80 year old people that have no desire to spend the rest of their days doing nothing but playing golf or cards. It's not like writing comics is physically exhausting

Well, he flat out stopped Volume 4 regularly exactly because he got exhausted and wanted a break from the franchise. And he was still only in his 50's when he did that.

So? Young people experience burnout all the time. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with age.

I am just really grateful that this is even an option. Star Wars fans are stuck with what ever Disney puts out (for good or bad). Fans that prefer Lucas' work have no hope of Lucas stories.

I am so glad Peter had the option put in the contract to put out stories. So awesome.

I also hope he can be convinced to "executive produce" some Tales stories

I guess that's true. Tristan said he wrote the Turtles like people write Batman or X-Men or anything else... as if the main characters are in a constant flux state of "present day," even if previous comics were pretty clearly set at a certain time. That take, I think, works for mainstream comics, but not for something like Mirage TMNT which are pretty specifically anchored to certain dates and events in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.
