TMNT: F


”Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Forever War.” Everything has been leading to this story since 1989. Shredder returns more dangerous than ever, and with Time Slip machine who can tell what damage can be done? Shredder has marshaled a vast sphere of power and control and the Turtles must do everything in their power to put an end to his machinations while there is still time. What will it take, and what mysteries about their origin could be revealed? At last we are on the threshold of the long-awaited, legendary story arc!

Friends! Like most folks visiting this page of ours, I am a huge fan of Archie Comics’ TMNT Adventures series. It is no secret that this comic book was cancelled back in the nineties (1995, to be precise). Many of us have heard about something called “Forever War“, a mysterious story arc we all were dreaming about after its very first announcement in the latest issues of TMNT Adventures. Unfortunately, the story never made it to the printed page because of the series’ cancellation.

However, in 2009 Steve Murphy, creator of the series, has announced that «Forever War» is going to be released under the aegis of «Mirage Studios». Despite the fact that he had been working on it for quite some time, it was decided that the story had to be totally rewritten and redrawn. It was supposed to be the one, true finale for the TMNT Adventures universe. Alas, the TMNT rights were sold to another party leaving fans devastated by the second cancellation.

And now, after 10 years of emptiness, our hope is returning and it will finally be rewarded! The thing is, my dear friends, that we have at our disposal all EXISTING ORIGINAL material of “Forever War“, right out of 1995! And it’s FORTY pages long, 2 complete issues out of 5!

But that’s not all! We’ve finished this story and gave it a spectacular ending using everything we had. Not a single page was left out, not a single dialogue perished! The story is naturally embedded into the Archieverse and it explains EVERY SINGLE incomplete plot thread, which had existed since the dawn of the series!

Moreover, the incredible Chris Allan has agreed to finish this story with his own hands -- he will illustrate this story from beginning to end!

We are the team that brought you the TMNT Volume 3 Conclusion, “Odyssey” and “Origin,” all created in participation with the Mirage Studios legends: Kevin Eastman, Jim Lawson, Frank Fosco, Dan Berger, A.C. Farley, Rick Arthur, Rick McCollum, Bill Anderson, Will Tupper, Andres Ponce and many others! We also created a variety of TMNT fan comic not related to the Mirage or Archie universes.

And today we are proud to present you the EXCLUSIVE! A 10-page sneak peak to this story:

WHY DON’T YOU USE A REAL CROWDFUNDING?

There are several reasons. First of all, IndieGoGo and Kickstarter take a separate percentage of the funds, and we think that you deserve seeing every single cent of yours being put into work. Furthermore, our project is located in Russia, and we cannot start this campaign using the web resources mentioned above.

FOREVER WAR is not our first project and we hope that we’ve earned your trust by now. We have big plans ahead of us, so one thing we can say for sure: this is not going to be the last one!
