078 – Geek Life – Turtles Time Warp

TMNT Time WarpThis week we look back at the iconic first issue of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird… 80’s style! That’s right, we go back in time and imagine what it’d be like to review TMNT issue 1 in 1984 right as it came out. Eastman and Laird weren’t comic titans yet, just aspiring indie comic creators from New Hampshire. Without all the weight that the turtles carries in our minds, how do we really feel about TMNT if we’d never heard of it before? Find out in this special episode of the Geek Life Podcast.
