But even if the continuity-screwing turns out to be true, this professed Turtles fan has to ask– is there enough to TMNT to get up-in-arms about in the first place?

After returning from a whirlwind week in Paris, France where I was lucky enough to experience the comic culture firsthand (they LOVE comics over there), I’m back to the familiar racks of the États-Unis.

Mass Effect 3 hit shelves earlier this month to record hype– the fervor emanating from Bioware’s rabid fanbase was almost insurmountable. I personally was dizzy with excitement on March 5th just waiting for the hours to run down to 12am so I could speed home and begin a marathon playthrough of the game that would no doubt be regarded as one of the greatest works of science fiction ever produced.
