Almost single-handedly kicking off the independent comic book boom of the mid-’80s, the titanic Turtles went on to become pop culture megastars with a hit animated series, action figures, feature films, and, of course, their very own Archie comic book series based on their TV show. Relive the very first Archie Turtles comic, a 3-issue adaptation of the original television mini-series, “Heroes in a Half Shell!” This thrilling story has it all: the origins of the Turtles, Splinter, Bebop and Rocksteady; the first Archie appearances of April O’Neil, Shredder and Krang; plus Krang’s robot army, the Neutrinos from Dimension X, and the Technodrome! Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are anxious to reacquaint themselves with you, so what are you waiting for?
The Archie incarnation of the TMNT comics(or even the cartoon, for that matter) was never really my thing when it originally came out. However, I’m very much looking forward to checking out this piece of pop culture nostalgia. Plus, you can’t really go wrong with Bebop and Rocksteady.
