Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Drawing Blood’ By Kevin Eastman, David Avallone, and Ben Bishop
Maximus Prime   |  

Drawing Blood Kickstarter Kevin Eastman

If any of you are like me, you grew up watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, playing with the brand’s action figures, and reading the comics. But have you ever wondered what it was like for the creators of TMNT — or any other popular franchise for that matter — to hit it big in the comic book industry? What kind of stories do these guys have to tell from behind the scenes?

In Drawing Blood — a graphic novel written by one of TMNT‘s co-creators, Kevin Eastman, and that is currently running on Kickstarter — you’ll get to learn about some of these true stories, only set in a fictionalized world. Joined by comic creators David Avallone and Ben Bishop, Eastman’s Kickstarter for Drawing Blood has passed its goal of $75,000, and with only has a few days left, is now reach for some awesome stretch goals!

I was able to chat with both Avallone and Bishop about the project, and am excited to share their experiences with all of you! Check out the interview here below, along with their video for Drawing Blood!

Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Director: Dave Green
Screenwriter: Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec
Cast: Megan Fox, Stephen Amell, Will Arnett, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Gary Anthony Williams, Stephen Farrelly, Brian Tee, Tyler Perry, Laura Linney
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 112 Minutes
Release Date: June 3, 2016

I gave Jonathan Liebesman’s 2014 film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a pretty definitive thumbs-down:

“I wish someone had regarded this movie as something more than an opportunity to sell action figures and create product placement opportunities for Pizza Hut and Orange Crush. I wish someone involved would’ve given at least one shit – but of course we’re talking about the same people who churn out brain-dead Transformers movies filled with racist stereotypes and giant robots with wrecking balls for testicles.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows does something its predecessor didn’t. It tries. Is it successful? Not entirely, but at least Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes are making an effort to deliver an experience fans of Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman‘s beloved characters can appreciate.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

While the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film wasn’t well received by film critics, it was still a big hit with audiences, and a lot closer to the ’80s cartoon then the first trilogy. the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, will introduce the hockey mask wearing vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), the nefarious scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and the Shredder’s (Brian Tee) dim-witted mutant henchman Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE’s Sheamus).

‘Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows’ Trailer: Heroes In A Half Shell Face Fan Favorite Villains
eelyajekiM   |  

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

Those heroes in a half shell are back for an all new adventure that will surely be a polarizing trip down nostalgia lane. The first reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise debuted back in 2014, where it was a huge box office success but was critically panned. The fact that Michael Bay was and is attached as producer doesn’t help with loyal fans. But since the film was a resounding success grossing over $490 million worldwide, obviously a sequel was going to happen.

For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows, director David Green takes over for previous director Jonathan Liebesman. And with a sequel comes brand new characters, some of which may be familiar to fans of both the comics and the cartoon. Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly, a.k.a. WWE’s Sheamus), and Doctor Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) will be the Turtles’ new adversaries. But there will also be new allies to aid them in their fight against the Foot Clan. Casey Jones (Steven Amell) will join the turtles as the hockey mask wearing vigilante and possible love interest to April O’Neill (Megan Fox).

You can check out the latest trailer below along with some images.
