I'm so excited to continue to review the ongoing storyline for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you remember in last month's issue, our heroes fought two of Shredder's strongest cronies--Rocksteady and BeBop--in one of the best comic book battles I've ever read. Then, in the epilogue, we catch Donatello controlling Dr. Harold's robot turtle, Metalhead, to have a conversation with Shredder . . . about Krang! It was truly an exciting issue!
I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to write a review for the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time comic book series. Chapter 3 in this series was one of the very first comics I reviewed for Fanboy Comics, let alone one of the first comic books I've read since I was a young boy. Although, at first, I thought time-traveling turtles were a little far fetched, I then remembered that I was reading about a series of ninja turtles who also happen to be mutant teenagers. EVERYTHING is too far fetched for this storyline! And, now that I've read all 4 issues, I actually think this is one of the best TMNT comic books in the entire franchise.
When this assignment was first sent out by my boss, I had fellow friends and reviewers approach me with, "Dude, did you pick up that James Bond review?" See, if you know me well enough, you'll know that I am a HUGE James Bond fan! I've seen each of the 23 films more than once. I have autographs from all SIX actors who have played James Bond in the official movies (Yes, including George Lazenby . . . ). I even have signatures by Judi Dench, Richard Kiel (Jaws), and Honor Blackman, better known as "Pussy Galore." I even still own a Nintendo 64 gaming system solely for the purpose of playing the best James Bond video game ever made, Goldeneye. So, when I first picked up a copy of James Bond and Popular Culture: Essays on the Influence of the Fictional Superspy and read that it was dedicated "to fans of spyfi, espionage, and, of course, James Bond aficionados everywhere," I knew I was meant to review this novel.
