The Forever War: 5-Part Mini-Series Beginning August '09

When the TMNT Adventures title from Archie was canceled in 1995, it was done abruptly and premature. A new story titled "The Forever War" had been already solicited for several months, but it didn't matter... the title went kaput. (For a little background on that story, check out these old posts from the 5th Turtle: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.)

In recent years Mirage has teased us, saying that they would publish this "lost" story... but still, it never came. Until now!! Using the 25th anniversary as a pretty good excuse, wheels are really turning and "The Forever War" will finally see print! There's been a lack of details as to when and how we'd see it, but the answers seem to have finally arrived.

Cap e-mailed in with the above picture, which is a full-page advertisement for "The Forever War," stating it will (still) be in five parts and the first will be shipping in August (I think the previous best guess had been September). To make sure that your comic shop orders the book (and saves you a copy!) just print out the ad and bring it in to them - The information at the bottom will help ensure that they get it for you!

This scan is from the back of the Free Comic Book Day reprint of TMNT Vol. 1 #1 - Don't forget to visit your local comic shop on May 2nd to pick up your copy of that book!!

Japanese TMNT Figures on eBay

Shameless plug alert! Yes, all of the following are my own auctions. Click each picture to be taken to the corresponding auction.

Saint Turtle! This is possibly one of the coolest TMNT action figures ever, and it was only available in Japan - No US variation exists! Saint Turtle is the result of the TMNT being adapted for Japanese anime and manga audiences. All four Turtles use transformation crystals to become "Super Turtles," then when the situation becomes most dire they combine their forces (literally!) to deliver a finishing blow.

Super Turtles Michaelangelo! This is the pre-Saint Turtle transformation of Michaelangelo. A variation of this figure was released in the US, but it differed in size and detail.

Super Turtles Donatello! Like the Michaelangelo figure above, this is the pre-Saint Turtle transformation of Donatello. A variation of this figure was released in the US, but it differed in size and detail.
