“A final battle looms as Karai decrees a “Gauntlet” battle between ancient foes Splinter and Shredder but first the Turtles must defeat the Foot mutants— Koya, Bludgeon, Bebop & Rocksteady!”
Though this issue is hugely riveting, with great art and a thrilling conclusion, I couldn’t help but come away amused by it all. That may be an odd thing to say when the stakes are so high and we’re so close to the issue 50 ‘conclusion’, but my amusement stems from one idea.
The idea that Shredder is getting shafted from multiple angles.
Full of brains and brawn he’s quite rightly a formidable foe. But he does seem very prone to outbursts and not always seeing the bigger picture. His rage and ego allow him to be corralled by those close to him. It’s going to come back on him, soon hopefully, »

Walking along Ventry beach in south west island, it's easy to see how a filmmaker might be inspired by the spectacular landscape: the rolling hills and craggy rocks, the overwhelming air of tranquillity. But the inspiration for animator Tomm Moore's new film, the Oscar-nominated Song Of The Sea, was inspired by a less than tranquil experience.
About a decade ago, Moore was staying on holiday in the nearby town of Dingle, and visited Ventry beach with his 10-year-old son. To their horror, they found the beach littered with the bodies of dead grey seals. Reports at the time suggested that local fishermen, who blamed the seals for dwindling fish stocks, were responsible for the cull.
"I was talking to a local lady, and we were disturbed by »
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slyly amassed the rather impressive sum of $485 million last summer, where it was released amidst hits like Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and 22 Jump Street. This impressive haul meant that a sequel was always going to be ordered, but I don.t think that anyone ever envisioned that the eminently watchable Laura Linney would be starring opposite Raphael, Michelangeo, Leonardo, and Donatello. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Linney has now signed on the dotted line to star in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, however, details surrounding her character at this point are being kept a secret. Last week, Paramount Studios confirmed that the iconic villains from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons, Bebop and Rocksteady, will be joining the sequel, but even though she is renowned for her dramatic work, it would be quite the stretch for Linney to portray »
In bravura style, this shocking season finale showed Rick confronting the people of Alexandria, and perfectly set up a very creepy season six
Spoiler alert: this blog is published after The Walking Dead airs on AMC in the Us on Sundays. Do not read on unless you have watched season five, episode 16 (which airs in the UK on Fox on Mondays)
Of all the shows on television, none does a season finale quite like The Walking Dead, and Sunday night’s was no disappointment. Much like one of Stefon’s nightclubs on Saturday Night Live, the episode had everything: a zombie’s brain exploding inside its head, a guy fighting off weirdos with a stick like Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Carole picking on someone twice her size and demanding her dish back, a throat-slashing Sasha lying down in an open grave, and a disco ball hooked up »

Occasionally something drops in your inbox that you simply cannot ignore.
Pasquale has painted his own takes on da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, Donatello's David, Raphael's Sistine Chapel Cherubim and Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, for display on the walls of outside the National Gallery.
"The last one is the hand of god - The Creation of Adam. We had the creation of pizza," Pasquale explains patiently.
"It was deep pan, and it was also stuffed crust. I really love stuffed crust, but I can't have it 'cos I'm gluten free. »
Chuck Lorre has cornered the market as far as sitcoms are concerned. He currently has four major shows on the air, including The Big Bang Theory, Mom, Two and a Half Men and Mike & Molly. Et met up with the prolific TV producer just before an event celebrating him at Warner Bros. Studios.
"Chuck changed my life very succinctly by being in the room when I auditioned," Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons told Et.
"He has a tremendous eye for what works and he's fearless to try it," Mike & Molly's Billy Gardell gushed.
Today, Chuck is a giant in the TV industry, but his success didn't come overnight. The 62-year-old Long Island, N.Y. native got his start as a musician and songwriter. His big claim »
Chris Cooper reviews the third issue of the Tmnt and Ghostbusters crossover…
“Time is running out for the Turtles to get home, and a new villain is determined to make life as difficult as possible for the Ghostbusters! The two teams will have to think outside of the box to save themselves… and New York!”
This is more like it.
With Donnie firmly ensconced with the Ghostbusters now this series kicks on with more fan pleasing dialogue and a story that is nearing a crescendo.
The budding relationships are very enjoyable to read, with the story giving us quite a few Ghostbuster/Tmnt combos so far. Each gives us more insight into how the two groups work. Peter for instance seem bothered that Leo is the de-facto leader, whereas the busters seem to share that duty more amongst themselves. So I’ve enjoyed it, but there’s one guy I »
