All I know is that if Sub-Zero didn't have his ice powers Leonardo would totally beat him.

As soon as I start getting issues I will be all over this.I read all of the Mirage TMNT.Hopefully the IDW series has more mutants that I remember from the animated series.I think so far i've only encountered Leatherhead.

When are they going to bring back that girl turtle?

@Vance Astro: Excellent.

@Ferro Vida: Oh, snap.

@Erik: :O

I love how people flock to comment about the TMNT movie, claiming to be fans and all that, yet I feel as though only a handful are following this title. It's rather disappointing that this series isn't getting more love and support from the same crowd.

Now that you mention it, I don't remember the story of the live action series but how did Venus even fit in the first place? Splinter would have to be kind a douche for their to have been another turtle and he abandoned her.

@Mercy_: It's about a family just trying to make it in the Big Apple.

And there's fighting every now and then.

My memory is hazy on it since I only watched a few episodes but I believe Splinter's friend (the guy that taught Venus magic) wanted one and he agreed or something like that. I did read that Peter Laird absolutely hates the character Venus and during the making of TMNT director Kevin Munroe was very specifically instructed not to mention her, or even joke about her in front of Peter lol.

That is probably because most "fans" have only experienced the franchise with the movies or cartoons. Half the people I talk to about the franchise did not even know it was originally a comic or that it currently has an ongoing.

@Erik: That's sad? I thought that was her apathetic look.

Tell me what about turtle-boobs is a good thing. :p
