Crowdfunding Alert! TMNT: Origin Graphic Novel

As much as I love the current IDW comics, there’s nothing quite like a trip in the world of Mirage Publishing. While fans continue to wait for issue #33 of Mirage Volume 4 (we have our cash in hand, Mr. Laird!), Seattle-based writer Andrew Modeen trying to fund a new original graphic novel set in the Turtle’s original continuity. The best part? He’s bringing famed TMNT artist Jim Lawson along for the ride!

From the Indiegogo page:

After bringing you the Image TMNT conclusion (Vol. 3 #24, #25), “TMNT: Odyssey,” we now bring you “TMNT: Origin,” an exciting new adventure of the Mirage TMNT venturing to the center of the universe to get both answers to their existence as well as what is needed to save it. An unlikely alliance is formed that will encounter many new creatures and be forced to confront new truths. This has been a tale many years in the making, with the talents of veteran Jim Lawson artist at the forefront.

This project will forge ahead if it meets at least 50% of its funding goal. With a month left in the campaign, let’s get this funded! Check it out at the link below!

Dan Gehen is a lot of things, but one thing he's been for his entire life is a TMNT fan (this has been verified by watching embarrassing home videos of his formative years). Though the classic 1980s cartoon caused his 3-year-old version to drive his parents insane via the constant repetition of "cowabunga dude", his true appreciation for the heroes in a half-shell came from the 1990 feature film as well as the comics by Mirage Studios. Today, he continues to enjoy comics from a variety of publishers, including the current TMNT series from IDW Publishing.
