Daredevil Meets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Published on Saturday, November 17, 2012 by

Life is keeping me from buying comics at the moment so I am turning to online comics to fill my need. I’ve found a neat one that I wanted to share.Bill’s Comics presents: Daredevil Meets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! ActionFiguresPics.Com and BillsComics.com have this epic 26 page unofficial company crossover. It is a bash and smash team-up comic reminiscent of 90s Marvel. The story opens with the Turtles who quickly, accidentally throw themselves into another reality. There, they coincidentally, quickly find Daredevil and team-up easily.  Resolution.

Despite the 90s story set up formula this is a cool read. The dialogue holds up. The situation is fairly predictable but it works.

What makes this comic really cool, and why it is hosted on a site called ActionFigurePics.com is how the art is delivered. Instead of a stable of rotating artists working for page rates—in true 90s Marvel fashion—this comic is created combining photography and toys. The images are crisp, clear, and make me want to run to my toy bin.

I’ve long wanted to do something similar, but I cannot master the macro functions of my camera or the photoshop. I also don’t have enough money to buy all the characters I would want to interact or the background sets. This is not an easy production. It is trickier than just laying in a bedroom floor playing with toys.

Since the toy photo covers from IDW on G.I. Joe and Transformers I have been wanting a company to put out a one shot issue that does exactly what BillsComics is doing. It seems like Marvel or DC either have plenty of characters in plastic and creative staff to pull off a comic that would link into the toy sells market. Since the big companies have neglected to do this I am pleased that the internet has provided it!

This comic captures the fun of the new TMNT toys too which is an added bonus. Having the familiar foursome take on the Hand instead of the Foot is excellent for those of us geeky enough to remember that Eastman and Laird were spoofing Daredevil originally.

To paraphrase Reading Rainbow, don’t take my word for it. Check it out! Then go play with your toys.
