Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman and scribe Tom Waltz have taken fans through some major ups and downs over their six-year run with the IDW Turtle-verse. We've dealt with the reincarnation aspect of the origin, putting Donatello near death's door, and the big showdown with Hamato Yoshi (AKA Master Splinter) and Oroku Saki (AKA Shredder), to name just a few.
We caught up with both of them recently at WonderCon, where we talked about the drastic turn in the story as Master Splinter has decided to lead the Foot Clan and thus creating a divide between himself and the Turtles. We talked about the family dynamic within the core of the series, as well as the new storyline delving into another family, the Pantheons.
With all of the incarnations of the Turtles in popular culture, including three separate film franchises, four cartoon series, a short-lived live action TV show and countless comics and video games, we asked both Eastman and Waltz what are the definitive versions do their hear in their heads as they're creating new stories for IDW Turtle-verse.
