Nerdy Show Interview: Ninja Turtles Rise! Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz, & Ben Bishop
When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.
Coming to you live from North Carolina Comicon – Oak City, Cap hosts a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle tell-all with series co-creator, Kevin Eastman, writer of the IDW TMNT series, Tom Waltz, and awesome artist, Ben Bishop. Whether you’re a longtime fan looking to scrape the sewer for new intel or have fond, fuzzy memories of action figures and cartoons of yore – this episode’s got something for you!
These simultaneous creators, artists, and fans discuss TMNT history; such as how the IDW series, now the longest running Ninja Turtles comic ever, came to be. And they also tease tales to come – such as some insider info on Nickeodeon’s upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the return of the John Woo-inspired book, Bodycount, and Eastman and Bishop’s new indie comic, Drawing Blood. We also discuss personal favorite TMNT video games, Waltz and Bishop’s TMNT origin stories, and much more.
