Thirty Days of Turtles: Agent Bishop

Recently I decided that if I want to keep having new content on this blog, I'm going to have to branch out beyond Marvel and DC. They'll always bring in new content, and I'm sure I'll continue to find old ones I've missed, but it's time to move toward more unfamiliar territory. With that in mind, and because they have a new movie out, I thought I'd kick this new era off with Thirty Days of Turtles!

That's right: From June 3 to July 2, there'll be a post each day highlighting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles canon immigrants. Now, because TMNT canon is a little confusing, it can be hard to tell what counts as a canon immigrant and what doesn't. So for the purposes of this blog, a TMNT canon immigrant is anything (a) from the movies, cartoons, video games, toy lines, or tie-in comic series that later appeared in (b) TMNT volumes 1, 2, or 4 [because they're by the original creators] or TMNT volume 5 [because the original creators are involved, it's the new official continuity, and its goal is to use as much of the diverse TMNT lore as possible].

With that in mind, let's look at today's entry: Agent Bishop!

Agent Bishop is a recurring villain in the 2003 series. First appearing in the episode "Space Invaders, Part 2" (October 2004), he's a Man in Black whose goal is to eliminate alien threats. He also has a personal vendetta against aliens because he was abducted when he was a kid.

I hear he makes an appearance in Mirage's Tales of the TMNT, but I can't find any proof of that. If anyone has an issue number or a scan, please let me know.

Luckily, he also appears in IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #54 (January 2016), and will probably make more appearances in the future.
