The Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman and starring Megan Fox is in theaters today, and as it is being mercilessly panned by fans and critics, IDW Publishing, owners of the TMNT comics license, are looking to mitigate the damage to the franchise by cutting prices on all their digital comics by 50%. Starting yesterday and running until August 11th, which is presumably when IDW has calculated that the Turtles brand will be irreparably ruined and everyone's childhoods will be thoroughly destroyed, you can pick up every single one of IDW's Turtles comics, including the mini-series, for only $.99 each, and collections for prices ranging from $1.99 to $3.99.
"We've got to try to get our money's worth," said IDW Editor in Chief Chris Ryall. "When we first obtained the rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we had no idea that Michael Bay was planning on making a movie worse than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Turtles in Time. Who would have thought that Bay would come along, cast Megan Fox as April O'Neil, and cause fans to long for the days of Venus De Milo?"
"This could ruin us," said Ryall, his eyes welling up with tears.
You don't want to make Chris Ryall cry, do you? Of course you don't. So head over to the IDW Digital Store and check out the IDW TMNT sale. For the price of a single IMAX 3D Smell-o-Vision movie ticket and a small bucket of popcorn, you could purchase IDW's entire TMNT run, which has been fantastic, and which is a great value for $22.99, as opposed to the movie ticket, which has less value than repeatedly whapping yourself in the genitals with a pair of nunchucks while shouting "Go Ninja Go Ninja Go!"
Stay tuned to The Outhouse this weekend, as we plan to milk the shit out of this movie release by writing multiple articles about it in addition to the multiple articles we've already written, including a video review from Outhouse Ace Reporter Zechs, who lost a bet and was forced to see the movie and record his horrified reaction, GHERU's thoughts on the movie, and probably this same joke recycled multiple times by yours truly because that's how I roll.
