Eighties expert and retro streamer J-money joins us for another retake on a classic as we read “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Change is Constant” by Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz. In this re-telling of the turtles’ origin, three of the brothers seek their missing counterpart while another agent is out for revenge. We talk about the background and context of the TMNT franchise, discuss the characterizations of each of these turtles, and try to figure out how these mutated animals view their world. Plus, we talk about “Solo: A Star Wars Story” spoiler-free for about 10 minutes up top.

The Infestation comes to a dramatic (ish?) conclusion, rolling through the universes of GI Joe and the Ghostbusters. We talk about some surprisingly good writing, and discuss the differences between books that tie in to major events and books that stay hands-off. Plus, zombie, vampire, technovirus boobs!

This week we start off our Ultimate Wacky Cross-Over Mania series with the first part of IDW’s Infestation. We read Issue 1 and both the Star Trek and Transformers minis throughout this zombie assault on licensed comic book properties. Are these big publisher-wide, universe-affecting events really worth all their hullabaloo, or are they just a cheap ploy to get your dollars and nerdrage? We talk about all of that, and science.
