TMNT Flashback: Comics Interview #83

A couple weeks ago, the TMNT world was rocked on its heels when Steve Murphy officially let it out of the closet that he was, in fact, the one and only Dean Clarrain, writer of virtually the entire TMNT Adventures title from Archie Comics. Even though it hadn't before been made official, I had thought more people had figured it out. But it seems those of us who had were in a minority. To celebrate this outing, I present to you Comics Interview #83, featuring an interview with the team behind the TMNT Adventures title: Dean Clarrain, Ryan Brown, and Dan Berger.

Gee, that Dean Clarrain guy doesn't look like Murphy at all...

As for the full interview itself, you can download it, for a limited time only, by clicking here. Enjoy!

Another Interview With Steve Murphy

Murphy has posted a new, fan-conducted interview over at The 5th Turtle.

Here are a few highlights:
We should know this Friday (July 13) whether or not Imagi (animation studio) and Warner Brothers/Weinstein Group (distribution) plan on going forward with a sequel.

All I know about TMNT V. 4 is that Peter Laird (its writer and creative guru) hopes to return to working on it by the end of the calendar year. At least that’s what I heard this morning from our CEO.

Given the way Mirage Publishing is going, I would doubt very much that we’ll ever see The Forever War storyline (from Archie’s TMNT Adventures) getting published.

New Interview With Steve Murphy

Newsarama has posted a new interview with (outgoing) Tales of the TMNT editor, Steve Murphy. I've quoted what I found to be the most interesting chunks of text below. You can read the entire interview here.

Tales will continue to come out monthly, the trades will continue quarterly, and we'll continue with our yearly solo-Turtle mini-series projects. At least through the end of 2008. After that, things are, well, rather murky. As Jim Morrison sang: "the future's uncertain, and the end is always near." How's that for being cryptic?

I've recently begun negotiations with a publisher of trade paperbacks who does have distribution into the chain bookstores. While the deal is not signed yet, should it come to be, they would be coloring and publishing collections of Mirage comic books, most likely the current run of Tales.

From where I am right now, the future looks... mixed. While plans are underway for a new direction for the cartoon show in 2008, we still do not have a green light as to a movie sequel. Comics will be published at least through the end of 2008 (as noted above). To our double-headed licensing stream of cartoon-based and movie-based, we will be actively pursuing what we're calling "retro," which is a third licensing stream, one that's based on the classic TMNT cartoon. As far as the future of Mirage itself, only time and Peter Laird will tell.
