My first exposure was definitely the 90's TMNT cartoon, but only about 4 years ago did I see some threads on /co/ and learned about the comic. I found a copy of the first saga book at the bookstore, and then got the rest. less than a year later I decided that story timing seemed fun, so maybe I'd try my hand at it. usagi seemed like a solid bet, it wasn't storytimed much despite its greatness. That first year, I wasn't really planning to do the whole series, I expected I'd drop it before the end of the fantagraphics run. Then I decided i could at least get to grasscutter, because that was a good one. Then I may as well do the rest... then someone suggest making it an annual event. So here I am.
