View from the Gutters: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

On this week's episode of View from the Gutters the topic is IDW's relaunch of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, featuring original creators Eastman and Laird.

This week on View from the Gutters, our topic work is IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Vol. 1. Created in 1984, TMNT was at the forefront of the anthro-boom of the mid and late 80s, and have been featured in dozens of comics, cartoons, movies, and toy series. For those who have grown up under a rock, TMNT features the adventures of four anthropomorphic ninja turtles and their allies fighting thugs, monsters, and aliens on Earth, in space, and even in parallel dimensions.
The IDW series serves as a new beginning for the Turtles, and features both a retold origin for the cast as well as the return of creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird to the series. In this series the Turtles are still learning about themselves and the world they inhabit, unaware of the forces aligned against them, such as the other-worldly (and classic villain) General Krang.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated DC: The New Frontier, X-Men: Mutant Massacre, Erfworld Book 1: The Battle for Gobwin Knob, X-Treme X-Men, and Justice League International for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Erfwold Book 1: The Battle for Gobwin Knob (readable online at
Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Eric Manix, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds
