Issue 55: Hats!

The winter season is retreating. Warm temperatures are finally emerging. It's that joyous time when we can dismantle our winter uniform - peeling off each layer with satisfaction. Gone are the long coats and helmet-like hats. Staying warm is no longer of concern, but rocking Turtle Power is just as important.

Here are 5 hats from The Sewer Den collection to keep you styling throughout the sunny season.

Issue 54: Top 10 Ridiculous Moments (of Back To The Sewer)

Who remembers TMNT: Back To The Sewer? The cartoon was released in 2008-2009, the 7th and final season of the 2K3 series that limped to the finish line. At this point the show had lost much of its steam. The previous seasons had the Turtles battle bad guys in the year 2015. The Turtles belong in NYC, not the future. At least the creators ended the series where it belonged - the sewer.

Issue 53: Mutant Merch (3 Things From The 2K3 Series)


The Sewer Den is swimming in TMNT merchandise. I usually weave a common thread when writing about them - a theme to connect the mutated pieces. But occasionally, a few treasures claim themselves as outsiders.

I have 3 random items here from the 2K3 cartoon series. They have nothing in common, except for the same TMNT era.

Issue 52: Radical Reading (TMHT World Atlas)


Toss aside your library cards and grab your passports - we're leaving the sewers! I present a Turtles gem with worldly flair.

Our favorite mutants bounce around the globe with their own World Atlas. The cover was the only image available when I purchased the book. Would the 1991 publication be packed with global Turtle Power? Or would this book gather dust on the shelf?

Overnight Movie Marathon

Friday the 13th is a day to celebrate. The horror holiday hit this March, and I hosted an overnight movie marathon. This wasn't an obvious snooze-fest of back-to-back Jason movies. I carefully selected 6 spooky films to keep our hearts pumping from dusk til dawn. I aimed to screen movies that embraced the spirit of The Sewer Den - campy, entertaining, and oozing with sinister fun.

Ninjas In My Neighborhood

New York City is brutally cold this winter. It's an urban tundra, where dirty snow litters the frigid streets. When I escape my home, an agonizing, battering wind immediately shows its force. I often find myself taking shelter in random establishments. Grocery stores, bodegas, pharmacies - nothing is off limits.

With temperatures plummeting to an ultra-painful ONE degree this season, I ventured into more places than usual for safety. Killing the time as my body thawed, I browsed each of these odd establishments for TMNT merchandise.

What kind of ninjas did I spot in my neighborhood?

Issue 51: Cowabunga Cupid

Happy Valentine's Day! Cupid has come to The Sewer Den. I love showcasing my collection of TMNT Valentines. The latest batch I've obtained will make your heart swoon with Turtle Power.

Here they are! Our valiant heroes, wooing you with a warped pizza in the shape of a heart. Printed in 1994.
