Lara Croft is back!  Has it really been one month already?  It feels like it’s been forever since we last read Dark Horse Comics’ latest issue of their Tomb Raider series.  Perhaps I’ve been playing too much Uncharted with Nathan Drake on my mind…

How cool was General Krang in the new film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows?!  He was disgusting, wasn’t he?!  I loved the portrayal of Krang in this film so much that I’m rooting for him to come back!  Is that weird?

I finally saw it!  Last week, I finally got a chance to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and let me start by saying that it was so much better than its predecessor. I think what the TMNT film was missing a few years ago was a storyline. The writers made it too complicated, but Out of the Shadows was fun from start to finish!  And if there were two characters who made this movie even more enjoyable, they were Bebop and Rocksteady!

Rumor has it that Indiana Jones is getting old. No, I don't mean Harrison Ford himself. More specifically, I mean that the Indy franchise is celebrating its 35th anniversary after Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark was released in 1981.

Have you seen it yet?  No, I’m not talking about the new Star Wars movie.  I’ve seen that seven times already.  I’m talking about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. I’m seeing it this week, and I haven’t been this excited about a movie since—well—since Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

We all have our obsessions. Some of us even have multiple. For me, it's mostly Star Wars and Harry Potter, but not many people know about an obsession I've had that goes all the way back to some of my first childhood memories. That obsession is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

If you've been following most of my reviews (as well as an editorial coming up this week), you should know by now that I'm a HUGE Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. As a fan of any franchise, most of us tend to root for the heroes, but some of us also like the baddies. TMNT has a couple major villains like Shredder and Krang, but it's their secondary cronies that I enjoy more, particularly--you guessed it--Bebop and Rocksteady!

Each month, Fanbase Press Contributor Joshua Desjardins (a.k.a. Stagedork83) receives new and exciting subscription boxes from Marvel Collector Corps, and the Fanbase Press readers have a chance to live vicariously through the deliveries as he captures the thrilling unboxing process on video!

THIS JUST IN:  Boba Fett and friends have officially taken over Funko’s Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box for the month of May, and there’s only one person for the job to open it—Fanbase Press’ very own contributor, Joshua Desjardins (a.k.a. @Stagedork83)!  Remembering that everything inside is exclusive to this every other month subscription series, Joshua can’t get enough of his new toys, and he needs YOU to help #SpreadTheNerd about his inner Dark Side.  In the meantime, may The Force be with you!

Is it that time of the month again already? No, I'm not talking about paying rent. I'm pretty sure it's time to continue our conundrum . . .

I know what you were all up to this weekend . . . playing Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, weren't you?  Do I know my readers well or what?!

In the meantime, for those non-gamers out there, at least we have the latest Tomb Raider comic book series by Dark Horse Comics to keep us entertained. After all, some would argue that Nathan Drake is simply a male version of Lara Croft herself.
