Hey Kids, Comics! #96 - Post-Pubescent Genetically Altered Martial Artist Animal Species

• July 12th, 2014

Experience some “Turtle Power” with this great new issue of Hey Kids, Comics!  featuring not only the life and times of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but the wannabe wave the title’s success spawned.  Parody or cash grab?  That really varied from publisher to publisher as irradiated critters took up the ancient fighting arts of the East and made the most of their youth. 

 

Your host Andrew Farmer, his faithful sidekick Cole “JediCole” Houston, and guest TMNT aficionado Eddie Medina step into the fray as turtles, kangaroos, gerbils, and other wildlife converged on comic shops in the 80s in a battle royale for sales that left just four turtles standing!
