@danhimself: They don't simply have animation rights, they own the entire franchise. They have some loose guidelines that the IDW team has to follow but they seem to be able to be left unto their own devices for the most part.

Still waiting for Casey Jones...
Same here! Maybe add Usagi Yojimbo too!
Miyamoto Usagi will not be appearing in this or any future TMNT production, as he is not a TMNT character. Stan Sakai has stated that he only let him appear in previous incarnations because Peter Laird was his buddy.
I've been a fan of Brizuela's for a while (since he'd done some Mirage TMNT), and IDW's April mini made me fall in love with Breckel's colors. Even if this book were dull, it'd still be eye candy.
I never expected the most depressing book in my pull list to be Deadpool.
Maybe I'm a bit biased with my dislike for Nova, but this is a pretty terrible figure. The buck is really nice, but all of the armor is made out of extremely cheap rubber. I only picked him up (just yesterday, strangely enough) to satisfy my ADD-like need to get a complete Marvel vs. Capcom series roster in this scale.
Thank you for confirming that I'd not gone mad and completely forgotten that there had been an ending to the First Lantern storyline. What madness could have come at DC that made this possible?
