Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo

TMNT and Usagi have a long and storied past.  Both creations first appeared in 1984 as black and white, creator owned, anamorphic characters, with asian influences. By 1989, the Turtles’ franchise was picking up steam, and a conversation between Usagi Creator Stan Sakai and TMNT co-creator Peter Laird resulted in Usagi being released as part of the TMNT Playmate Toys line. Since then, the two properties have crossed over in comics, toys, and television, as well as cheeky references to rabbits in the 1993 and 2014 Turtle films.

This month the world gets to see these amazing characters meet yet again in not one, but two, mediums...

Dread Gods #1

Written: Ron Marz

Color Art: Nanjan Jamberi
Letter Art: Dave Lanphear

In a dystopian future in the Wasteland town, citizens can plug in to watch the daily lives of the gods of Olympus. Prometheus presents the lives of Zeus, Hera, Ares, Tyche, Achilles, Apollo, and Artemis; people literally plug and and watch as battle play out like soap operas. It is like how people of ancient times worship the gods, only in the digital age. One person, Carver, is convinced that the gods need his help to defeat Ares.

The jury is still out on the writing by Ron Marz. He has taken the classic story of the gods of Olympus who battle with the god of war Ares...

Jem and the Holograms are told they are needed in the future, where the technology used for Synergy in the present is used for wrong. While going through a portal, The Misfits find them and want to know what’s up and go through. The Holograms and Misfits are transported into a world where Jem has almost a god like worship of the rich 1% of the population. Techrat, the person who transported the two groups, needs the help from the Holograms. The technology that created Synergy has unbalanced the future. The Misfits have their own agenda however.

I will not conceal my love of Kelly Thompson’s writing for Jem and The Holograms and The Misfits...
