Ask PL #5
I am pretty sure that this is the fifth "Ask PL" thing I've done -- if I am counting correctly, the fourth one was back on October 20, 2009. That seems like almost a lifetime ago.
Okay, maybe not a lifetime -- that could be just a smidgin of an exaggeration -- but it does seem like a very long time ago for me.
I can't really answer any questions about what is to come for the Turtles via their new owners -- I only know what everybody else knows from reading the press releases and such that have appeared online. Actually, I may very well know LESS than everyone else, because I haven't been following all of the new developments very closely.
And to (possibly) forestall any questions about TMNT Volume 4 -- sorry, I don't know when (or if) I will get back to it, though I hope to bring it to a conclusion at some point in the future, either as comics or simply as written plots. I do want to thank the various fans who have expressed their fondness for Volume 4 and their hopes to see it finished in some way. It is genuinely satisfying to know that there are some of you who appreciated what I -- assisted by the great talents of Jim Lawson and Eric Talbot on the artwork (and Michael Dooney on the painted covers) -- was trying to do with that series.
So, given that I am really doing nothing new with Turtles at this point, I am uncertain what kinds of questions you might want to ask. I guess there are still those twenty-five years of TMNT history that I was part of -- that would seem to be fair game. Or maybe there are non-TMNT (but comics-related) questions you might want to ask -- for example, the one or two people who liked my short-lived "Stupid Heroes" series may have some kind of query.
Or maybe I should expand the intent of this post from simply "Ask PL" to something like "Ask and/or Tell PL", if you just want to say something that isn't necessarily a question. Yeah, that sounds good. -- PL
