Well there you go, you learn something every day. I'll admit i'm not a great lore on TMNT as I was hitting the teenage years then and moving into "more grown up" stuff. I watched the movies, maybe watched a cartoon or two here and there but that was it.
So i'm probably the target audience they're looking for. Yay me!
Check out the first 11 issues of the original Mirage comic, then stop.
Tee original intent was to make a gritty, violent, and dark comic parodying gritty, dark, and violent comics like Frank Miller's Ronin and his Daredevil run and stuff like that. The only thing "funny" about them is however that the violence is handed out by turtles that are also Ninjas.
And yes they use their weapons the way they're intended to be. Their origin is also tied in with daredevil's, which I have to say is actually pretty funny.
they're not particulary good and they get worse after issue 11, which was the hight point of the series.
