Title: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #6
Authors: Peter Laird & Kevin Eastman
Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Genre: Comics
Pages: 37
Words: 2.5K


The boys are captured after the ship lands. Honeycutt the robot is threatened with their death if he won’t build a matter transmitter for the Triceratops nation. He refuses and the guys are thrown into a Battle Royale against 4 of the champions of the Triceratops. They beat them and then rescue Honeycutt. The issue ends with them, Honeycutt and one or two Triceratops being surrounded by the light of a matter transmitter.

My Thoughts:

This is NOT the 90’s cartoon. We’re talking broken wakizashi’s in the gut, bo’s in the throat, elbows and knees broken with nun-chucks, swords through the shoulder. All that good stuff. This issue earns the Ultra-violence tag.

This scan was from the collected color edition and not the original B&W comic hence the color cover. Color hides a LOT of rough art….

Rating: 4 out of 5.

        1. So roll on down to my place in your travelling bin and I’ll pop some totinos in the microwave and you can enjoy them whilst reading the adventures of mutated turtles!
          Gotta be more enjoyable than forcing yourself to watch the Eternals 😀


    1. You haven’t interacted with the blogger by that name?
      Well, I’m glad you learned something, because that proves comics are educational. And I should be getting paid big bucks by the current administration to promote such learnable things….

      1. From wikipedia: “The wakizashi was used as a backup or auxiliary sword; it was also used for close quarters fighting, to behead a defeated opponent and sometimes to commit seppuku.” Not sure about the “beheading” part, it’s a SHORT sword. 🙃

  1. Heh, TMNT were never a sweet story filled with unicorns (maybe there is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Unicorns comic out there, but that’s not it!). It gets pretty dark, tbh. Glad you’re having a blast!

    1. Well, the tv show for kids with their toyline is what I was referring to. That was rated something like tv7 (appropriate for 7 year olds).

      Thanks. It’s nice to be enjoying a comic unlike my time with Spawn…

    1. While I understand what the 90’s cartoon show as doing, I think it did a great service to the original comics. This is something I’d let a 12year old read but with the understanding that we were going to discuss it afterwards.
