During his our interview with the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" crew at San Diego Comic-Con, Greg Cipes, who voices Michelangelo menioted, “There's a lot of Turtles going around, more than I've ever seen.” And he was right. There were enough Turtle costumes for a full on pizza party.

Check out some of the best cosplay in a half shell below!

Nickelodeon's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" has proved that Turtle Power is alive and well despite a rocky re-boot for the franchise. Before the first episode of the new series had even aired, critics were vocal about the use of CGI over 2D animation and the jettisoning of Michelangelo's classic catchphrase "cowabunga" for Ali G's "booyakasha". And that's even leaving aside the PR headache of Michael Bay's big screen version, which was shut down in pre-production (although it's now back on track).

During San Diego Comic-Con, I sat down with the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" team (Sean Astin, Greg Cipes, Mae Whitman, Peter Hastings) to talk about fan reactions, season 2 and, of course, pizza.

Kleefeld's Fanthropology: San Diego!

Well, San Diego Comic-Con just wrapped up so it's almost mandatory that I devote this week's column to it. It's been called "Nerd Prom" and the "Geek Mecca" and all sorts of other things that evoke the basic idea that it's a large gathering of fandom. The largest, in fact, in North America drawing 130,000 visitors every year.

On Sunday at San Diego Comic-Con, it was time for the Women Of Marvel panel, and it ended up being one of my favorite sessions of the entire Comic-Con weekend, with moderator Jeanine Schaefer and panelists Christina Strain, Jenny Yeats, Judy Stephens, and Louise Simonson providing great insight and compelling anecdotes about their work and careers.

Between all of the big superhero matchups coming to the big screen and infinite television panels, this story almost slipped through the San Diego Comic-Con cracks: the Chuck Palahniuk Tumblr is reporting that the author, whose "Beautiful You" will be out in 2014, is working on a comic book sequel to "Fight Club."

heroes

By Matt D. Wilson

"Heroes" hasn't been on TV in more than three years, but that doesn't mean there aren't lots of fans of the series and its world still out there. So this week's news that "Heroes" will be making its return as a Dymanite Entertainment comics series written by "The Sixth Gun" and "Fearless Defenders" writer Cullen Bunn came as a welcome surprise for many.

The licensing deal is still quite new, so there isn't a lot to tell just yet, but MTV Geek spoke with Bunn to suss out what we could.

When we play the "remember the 90's" game with comics, many of us comics fans from the period will look back on the flashier, embarrassing parts of the industry: the rise of characters with names like "Bloodwulf;" the Chromium era; Superman's mullet. What we forget sometimes is that brilliant comics like David Lapham's "Stray Bullets" or Mike Allred's "Madman" were doing big, exciting, and strange things with the format without the benefit of 47 variant covers.

Add to that list Sam Kieth's "The Maxx," which is getting the hardcover treatment, according to an SDCC 2013 announcement from publisher IDW.

Watch: Dan DiDio on Stephanie Brown

Look, it's San Diego Comic-Con, you've got Dan DiDio on the microphone, so why not ask him the status of the popular DC Comics character. While he was still a bit cagey about what's happening with Stephanie Brown in the revamped DC Universe, he cautioned fans that it's better that she show up later than when originally planned in the line-wide "Forever Evil" event.
