Bloodsucker In The Flesh

I know I promised some history about Teknophage and I hope to have some stuff soon.  But wanted to share this cool Bloodsucker action figure created by TMNT fan, vaughmichael13.  I came up with the Bloodsucker character back in the original black and white Turtles comics (#24, I think?).

Interestingly one of the writers of Nickelodeon’s TMNT cartoon series, Brandon Auman, commented on the photo, saying they had wanted to use Bloodsucker in one of the shows but had to change it when they realized they didn’t own the rights!

    […] I read this post from Rick Veitch the other day, it had a longer explanation about just what exactly was the deal […]

    Do you have any plans ( vague or otherwise ) to do anything with those characters that you own from the Turtles comcs you did, Rick?

    I’ve always thought the super highway dimension of Sky Highway would make a good set up for a film.
