Various Updates
Posted Wednesday, June 11, 2003, 2:33 PM CDT by PJ
The next episode of TMNT will indeed be the season finale. The show is slated to run repeats through summer and pick up with the final 8 episodes in the fall. Season 2 is slated to run sometime in 2004 with 7 scripts already finished.

The current situation for the season one DVD's stands at this: They are supposed to begin shipment in September for a September 2nd release. That date is subject to change. There isn't much info on the format of the DVD but we will recieve some extra's, and by the way 4Kids has done stuff in the past, two episodes per disc.

As far as the new movie rumors go. That's just what they are. Rumors. The Mirage fellows still haven't heard anything from 4Kids on the subject. So unless it's confirmed take it with a grain of salt.

Comics Update
Posted Wednesday, June 4, 2003, 10:37 PM CDT by Bebop
Scans for all of Mirage Vol 4 are now up. The Mirage Specials section has been split up since 15 or so of the comics in that section did not belong there. You can still find the specials that were published by Mirage in that section. The rest can be found in a new section, cleverly titled Other Specials which contain all other TMNT specials that were not published by Mirage or Archie. There is also two new scans of the specials published by Random House found there.

Finally, my email address has not been working for quite some time now. The problem has been corrected and I am now accepting comic reviews or other ideas on how to improve the comic section.

Halloween costumes!

News about Season 2
Posted Sunday, June 1, 2003, 6:32 PM CDT by Nturtle
According to an animator of the new show, he has not heard anything about an animated movie being made. But there is a possibility of a movie being made, it depends on the popularity of the new show and the toys.
He also went on to give some spoilers for the next season! The turtles will apparently go through a time warp and battle the triceratons! Very, very cool.

[Thanks to Raphael for the heads up]
