Related notes, we’re getting overwhelmed with movie info once again this week due to ..

.. this week’s Cinemacon as it was host to the stars, theater operators and Paramount TMNT ‘s Will Arnett – leading to the reveal of the first trailer of the film*.

Of Note: *Arnet has his lore a little mixed up in the interview linked up – but the character of “VERN FENWICK” in the movie may be an amalgam of Casey’s cousin Syd from the comics and TMNT 2003 show & Vernon from the original cartoon show. Weird. On a nerdy note, technically Vernon was in the comics – the earliest TMNT Adventures books; adaptations of some of the very first few TMNT TOS episodes.

PORTRAIT OF ARCTIC DONATELLO
The Frosty Frozen Foot Fighter!

Arctic Donatello’s Accessories:
Real Workin’ Ice Water Shootin’ Blaster, Ice Poppin’ Penguin Pal, Anti-slip Snow Shoes, Ice Pick Bo, Gold Metalized Kowabunga Collector Coin

On the barren, frozen wasteland known as the Turtle tundra, there stands only one Mutant – Arctic Donatello. This is his element – this block of unforgiving ice where every direction you turn is south; this is where he lives out the adventure of a lifetime. Like his brothers, Safari Michaelangelo and Deep Sea Diver Leonardo, Artic Donatello is searchin’ for the lost gold coin that bears the name “Kowabunga Collector Coin.” Artic Donatello, along with his trusty ice poppin’ penguin pal, shuffles through the slushy snow in the only good pair of anti-slip snow shoes north of Alaska. And if any frozen Foot fools show up for a battle on the ice, Donatello will stop ‘em cold with a blast of water from his real workin’ ice water shootin’ blaster. Then, with a few swings of his ice pick bo, Arctic Donatello sends them on their way – south. So dress warm and put on some extra socks, cuz it’s your turn to join the adventure!

Written by JOSHUA ORTEGA (Gears of War) from a film treatment by DIGGER T MESCH (Agent 88, Art Asylum), “The Other Dead” is a six-issue miniseries examining what happens when a mysterious infection causes every single member of the animal kingdom to turn into blood-thirsty, ultra-strong zombies and attack an unsuspecting human populace. Interior artist QING PING MUI, master colorist BLOND and cover art from The Mighty KEVIN EASTMAN, co-creator of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” round out “The Other Dead” creative team.

People have been arguing for years whether zombies should walk or run and this September you can add flying, swimming, hopping and slithering to that debate as IDW Publishing unleashes zombie animal hordes in “The Other Dead.”

What’s the premise of “The Other Dead?”

Joshua Ortega: At the highest level, two words: Zombie. Animals. “The Other Dead” is the world’s first zombie animal epic, exploring what happens when the animal kingdom is turned into a horde of flesh-eating monsters.

As far as the story goes, a monstrous hurricane — even worse than Katrina — is about to hit southern Louisiana just as the Vice President is killed during an outbreak of a mysterious infection that’s turning all animals into ravenous, cold-blooded killers.

Into this mix is thrown our eclectic cast of characters: Tommy Romero, a 10-year old cancer survivor who’s struggling with his faith and belief in life; Azrael, Tommy’s older brother and a member of the Norwegian-like death metal band, Decapitated; Justina Abelinda Cortez, Az’s girlfriend who’s an exotic dancer and a Puerto Rican bruja/witch; Chet Wayne, a racist ex-Army Ranger who’s been preparing for the apocalypse for years; and Barack Obama — yes, the actual president of the United States — who ends up in the eye of the storm, dealing not only with the hurricane but the zombie animal outbreak as well.

In short: EIGHT new issues – 800 new pages of content! :)

Catching up to your IDW TURTLES books like Tokka ??
Come’on ..we know some of ya are out there. GGM recognizes you hard workin’ Turtle Super-FANS matter n’ count just as many as the SUPER-NERDS workin’ for the big SUPER-NERD sites.

“Greetings TMNT fans!!  IDW has been publishing the TMNT for nearly 2 full years (can you believe it?) and with every month that passes, the IDW TMNT cover gallery grows larger and larger.  As the IDW TMNT database expands, the blog format has really made the usability a bit cumbersome.  In other words, it’s become very difficult to find a given TMNT title, issue, TPB, or HC on my blog…especially those TMNT publications from months and months back.

Well, all that is over now.  I’m pleased to announce that I’ve organized all the IDW TMNT Publications on my blog into 3 categories:  Comic Books, Trade Paperbacks (TPB), and Hardcovers (HC).  Within each of those categories you’ll find a list of every IDW TMNT Publication to date, neatly organized by title.  Within each title you’ll find the links to every single issue for that title, listed in order of publication date.

All of this newly designed awesomeness can be found on the right side of the menu bar at the top of the blog.  The menu is labeled “IDW TMNT Publications.”  Just mouse over the menu and watch the magic happen!” –RICH
