Turtles — true and false


Yesterday the above, somewhat disturbing photo, swept through the internets like a virus, with the breathless question : is this a leak from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie?

Turns out the answer is: No. Latino Review, which first circulated the photo, says that it’s just a class project from one of makeup master Tom Savini’s students.


However we are happy to report that THIS is the real deal: PIZZA TIME! a TMNT ‘zine coming soon from Koyama Press. The above is Jon Vermillyea’s drawing, and it is not disturbing at all.

    I also like that design from Savini’s class. It’s like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, only in the AARP.

    That Savini Class design is actually pretty cool. It kinda reminds me of the excellent 3 part “re-imagining” of the Turtles done by Michael Zulli back in the day of the original, black & white series.
