“This summer some of the news that was released was the new designer Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Merchandise line coming out. With watches, shoes, and shirts are some of the things we’ll be seeing for TMNT. This is bringing out new styles of art that we have yet to see on the official side of store sales. One of the artist who did some of these pieces is Ron English.

At New York City Comic Con we were able to catch up with Ron to ask him about .. ..
A good friend and fellow Ninja Turtle fan Tokka, joins me as the co-host in this interview. Tokka is a fan of Ron English, so he knew a lot of areas that I did not know about with Ron’s work. It was great to have Tokka on the show. A lot of fans may know him for his posts on Go Green Machine, Twitter, Facebook and so many other places on the internet. Tokka is an artist, who was even published by Mirage as one of the pin up pages in Tales of TMNT Volume 2.
Tokka and I talk to Ron about his history in art, how he originally learned of Ninja Turtles, and how he is now involved in the future of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We also talk a bit on how the fans of the Classic TMNT are reacting to this new swing with the Turtles.”
