Turn Back Time: [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles] & [G.I.Joe Vs. The Transformers]

Ahh! Nostalgia....

Remembering those good times, I bring before you all two graphic novels I found on netgalley.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures Vol. 1
by. Dave Garcia

Classic animated TMNT action is collected here in this re-presentation of two fan-favorite cartoon adaptations! In both "The Return of Shredder Parts 1-2" and "The Incredible Shrinking Turtles Parts 1-2" read along as Shredder comes back to Earth from Dimension X and attempts to exact his revenge upon the hard-backed heroes.

OH MY GOD! This stuff is GOLD. You are a 90s kid? Then this is blast from the past. Your a 20s kid, then this is a welcome to an amazing cartoon for you. Contained here are two of the fan-favorite adaptations of the series. Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are here with the evil Shredder playing the age old game of good vs. bad. Very old school/disney-esque artwork, our heroes are the friendly ones and villains as it was in the cartoons put down as bullies, clutzy and definitely not spewing evil at all. But remember here, as it was originally TMNT was meant to be fun and it remains fun even if you have crossed the age appropriate  to read stuffs like this (like me).

Thus, clearly for the kids this is a story that the kids of today accustomed to Power Rangers and action packed visuals may love or hate it. But for a parent going to introduce cartoon/comics to their kids - this is definitely the safest bet.

G.I.Joe Vs. The Transformers
by. Michael Higgins

The worlds of G.I. JOE and The Transformers combine in this first volume of crossovers. Contains the 4-issue G.I. JOE and The Transformers limited series, plus issues #139-142 of Marvel's G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero. Megatron and Cobra versus the JOEs and the Autobots - who will come out on top?

Who doesn't love Transformers or the G.I.Joe! Everybody knows who Optimus Prime, Autobots, Decepticons, Duke, Snake eyes, Ripcord and the such are. And this is definitely a treat. Both the good groups the G.I.Joes and the Autobots come together against Cobra and the Deceptions. You don't want to miss it.

Very old schoolish design, this is another one which is meant as a re-introductions to the old stuff which is definitely the good stuffs. Its action and its one adventure that will be with you forever.

"For both the books i'd like to thank Netgalley and the publishers"
