Ep. 005 – TMNT Comics Review #1


We’re back, Turtle Fans! Sorry for the delay. I had some family in town for Labor Day weekend and while it was great having visitors and we were productive around the house, my podcasting schedule got set back BIG time. I’m still playing catch up and I apologize for that, but we’ll be back on schedule sometime this week!

This week’s episode is our FIRST COMIC BOOK EPISODE! Listen along as I breakdown the latest two issues of TMNT comics, TMNT #61 and TMNT Universe #1. These two issues were awesome and they’ve turned out to be great books to kick off our comic book review episodes. I’m excited to keep these episodes going, so I hope you dig ’em.

Thanks again for your patience, guys and girls! I appreciate it. Take care!

Comic Book Episode(s) Plans

What’s up Everybody?

Just wanted to throw a quick post out about my plans on how I’m going to tackle comic book episodes. As I said in the Intro Episode, I plan on doing comic book reviews of the ongoing TMNT series from IDW and also checking in on mini-series and other things they produce. Well, we’re in luck ‘cos the good folks at IDW are about to start a second Ninja Turtles ongoing title called “TMNT Universe” and it releases next week!

According to the team at IDW, the goal of the book will be to focus on and expand the world and other characters that fill the TMNT world. The series will have a rotating creative team, letting different artists and writers get a crack at producing Ninja Turtles stories.

I was originally going to record an episode with a review of TMNT #61 this week, but figured that with TMNT Universe dropping a week later I should just wait and let my comic book episode(s) have a little more content. So, my plan for now is to have the comic book episodes of the podcast contain the reviews for both series – book release dates permitting. If the releases stay within a week of each other than it won’t be a problem. If they start to get further apart than that, I may have to switch things up. We’ll see though.

I can’t wait to get into the first comics episode, but for now you’ll have to keep listening and enjoying the Nick show reviews. Thanks to any and all listeners! Your time, energy, and support is deeply appreciated!

Ep. 001 – The Intro Episode

What’s good, Shell Heads?

Thanks for joining me for the DEBUT episode! It’ll be the first of many, so hopefully I make a strong enough impression to keep you guys coming back. You’ll hear more than a handful in the episode, so please forgive me any quirks and/or hiccups as I get the show up and running. I’m still learning!

In this episode I discuss, embarrassingly enough, myself. I try to give you guys a mini rundown on who I am and why I’m beginning this journey as a podcaster. You’ll learn more and more about me as time goes on, but this’ll be good for starters. The other main goal of the premier episode is to get you guys acquainted with how I plan to run the show. I do my best to explain how I’m gonna set up and pace each show, what I’ll do with our time, and what I hope to do going forward. It’s exciting stuff! Really though, the point of this episode is to give you guys an introductory experience and set up the future of the show.

I’d like to give a couple personal shout outs for this first episode. Many, many thanks to the people who helped me get this podcast going. I want to thank my wonderful fiancé Katie for her patience and support. I want to thank my friend Jay Huggins for answering questions and being encouraging. I owe a BIG thanks and probably a little cash to my friend Gilbert Benavidez for supplying me with the quick logo treatments. Thanks to my friends and co-workers at 9Five Eyewear for encouraging me to pursue my interests and also paying me enough to do so. Thanks to everyone else that’s been friendly, supportive, and encouraging!
