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...

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...
