May 06, 2009

Cowabunga! It’s the 25th anniversary “Shell-ebration” of the fabulous phenomenon that changed comics forever! Almost single-handedly kicking off the independent comic book boom of the mid ‘80s, the titanic Turtles went on to become pop culture megastars with a hit animated series, a long-running line of action figures, box office-smashing feature films and of course, their very own Archie comic book series based on their TV show. Now you can relive the very first Archie Turtles comic, a 3-issue adaptation of the original television mini-series, “Heroes in a Half Shell!” This thrilling story has it all: the origins of the Turtles, Splinter, Bebop and Rocksteady; the first Archie appearances of April O’Neil, Shredder and Krang; plus Krang’s robot army, the Neutrinos from Dimension X, and the Technodrome! Thrill as the reptilian quartet uses all their “turtle power” to stop Shredder from getting a body for Krang! Watch Shredder’s attempts to entice the Turtles to join the Foot Clan fail because “Turtles fight with honor!” Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are anxious to reacquaint themselves with you, so what are you waiting for? Order this turtle-riffic graphic novel today!
