So Long and Thanks for all the Pizza

TMNTPartyVan.com began in 2010 as an effort to rediscover my childhood heroes and prove the relevance of a worthwhile franchise. Since then, the TMNT have successfully relaunched in the forms of comics, TV, video games, and a soon-to-be feature film thanks to the intelligent and loving hands at Viacom and Nickelodeon.

Roughly 6 months ago, I relocated with my now fiancé to California’s Bay Area for a life changing career and tried my hardest to keep up with TMNTPartyVan.com. Shortly after, I realized that the pressures of keeping the site up-to-date were outweighed by the fantastic work Viacom, Nickelodeon, NinjaPizza.net, Pixel-Dan, Ross Campbell, and many others were putting forth. I decided it was time to let the promotion be taken over by the pros.

For me, the Turtles symbolize the need to embody leadership, intelligence, passion, and humor. Their unique, twisted and broken (albeit collected) family with Splinter, Casey and April have served as a symbol of the importance of family and friendship. Their creation is a reminder of happy accidents that can come from collaborating with friends. They will never be replaced.

News may continue to trickle out of TMNTPartyVan.com from time to time but will likely not continue in the steadfast stream it once had. To those loyal followers, my deepest and most sincere apologies for not notifying you sooner.

For those interested, you can find my work at TheStarrList.com and/or follow me @_kylestarr. I am also in the process of editing a novel I had recently completed. With any luck, it will be published and available in the semi-near future.

Thank you all for making TMNTPartyVan.com an incredibly memorable, rewarding, and life changing experience.

Cowabunga,

Kyle

Here is the preview for mine and Ben Bates’s BEBOP AND ROCKSTEADY comic.

This is my first professional writing gig. We basically got to create IDW’s version of these characters. I hope people like it. 

I did do a bit of background assisting and I colored some of the pages too.

Ben did an AMAZING job bringing these guys to life. I love the way he draws them. 

If you haven’t picked up the Bebop and Rocksteady one-shot yet, please check it out.

[TOYS] TMNT Nominated for National Toy Hall of Fame
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are leading this year’s National Toy Hall of Fame race!

"The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book was originally self-published by two struggling artists to satirize comic book heroes and action figures in the early 1980s. However the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found themselves transformed into comic book and play icons, transmedia pioneers, and an enduring popular cultural sensation known as “Turtlemania”—generating toys, television shows, movies, video games, and merchandise over the past 25 years.” - National Toy Hall of Fame
