I’m still a young man. I haven’t even had my 30th birthday yet. And I can recall a period in my adult life where I was blacked out from the internet for a solid six months or so. I used it at work, but that was only for work. I didn’t have access to any of my e-mail, I wasn’t posting on any forums, and social media didn’t even exist yet. And it wasn’t by choice, I simply fried my computer and lacked the funds to get it repaired.
And yet, even typing that out feels like a different life now.
One computer’s death eliminating all internet access? What am I? A neanderthal?
The movie that I just wanted to do well, so that it would open the door to other adaptations. The movie I just wanted to be good so that momentum kept going. The movie that I loved and just hoped would make a decent pay day until something else knocked it off.

Classic Turtles tale. And for anyone that has never read the original series but wants to see what it was like? This annual is the one you want to pick up.
