A Conversation for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Heroes in a Half-shell

Recently returned TNTS DVD.
My grandchildren are addicted to them, as was their mother, when she first saw them in the 80's.
Although I have seeen the cartoons as well as the film, I must confess I'm not a great fan!
But they are well - imagined, and quite a money maker, still!

Read the graphic novels. They were/are easily the best.
Dark and brooding but with a subtle (not always black) humour.
The first movie captures some of that, but the cartoons were kid stuff.
My fave was always Raphael.
I must be getting old. I remember when....
....one of my mates worked in Minotaur (THE Melbourne, Aus, book and comic store). He thrust a hot off the boat copy of issue 3 into my hands and said, "Man. You've *got* to read this."

Yes, a 'few of us' just may be getting on (including ME!)
I confess I never read the novels.
I do enjoy SciFi, but prefer Mysteries.
Just finished "The Death of An Irish Lover" (Bartholomew Gill)
Rafael was also the fav or my daughter and now her three children (ages 2, 4, & 6)
