TMNT #23 double-pager by mooncalfe TMNT #23 double-pager by mooncalfe
a double-page spread i did for IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #23, which came out on June 26! (thanks to everyone who picked it up!) i was alongside other TMNT artists Mateus Santolouco/:devsantolouco, Andy Kuhn, Ben Bates/~AnubiTheFrog, Dan Duncan/~dan-duncan, and Kevin Eastman/=Kevineastman himself!! O_O

i hope it's okay to post this, i should ask my editor but Dan Duncan already posted his spread so why not??? :D

thank you!! :D i've done a bunch of TMNT IDW stuff. :tmnt1: how i got in with IDW, basically i was slated to draw TMNT for a different publisher before IDW got the license, and then when they did and Nickelodeon took the job out from under me, i made a stink about it on Twitter and then IDW approached me about doing some work. :)

This was my favorite spread to date. The way you captured his fear and innocence . . . It left me breathless. He was so vulnerable, made me want to protect him!
When Saki caught him and then that look on Leo's face, I dunno, his expression showing gratitude, fear, consternation and acceptance - just blew me away. Only you seem to balance the fact that they're children as well as warriors so beautifully. They're innocence and naivety comes through. Just wow.

Looked at this page over and over when I read the issue; love the layout, and you can really feel the dream-like transition leading to where leo stops himself at the ledge in the bottom left. Great stuff, man.

Gotta say! I love the work you did on this! The best part for me is that kind of awkward moment there between Leonardo (is it? He uses the Katana right?) And the Ninja guy. XD You can almost feel the awkward :stare:
Awesome :#1:

thanks!! :D it's Leonardo, yep! although the moment between he and Shredder at the end isn't supposed to be awkward, so maybe i botched that part, haha. :XD:

That's like a warped version of the events from the Leonardo micro isn't it? Very nice work!

I thoroughly enjoyed all the guest pages. This one specifically. You have the best Evil Splinter / Daddy Shredder by far! I know we've talked about it before, but you've just got vulnerability down perfect.

So he's having a nightmare in which he's chased by zombie versions of Splinter and he's saved by... Diabolik?

thanks! this was unusual because it's a double-page spread and it was supposed to be a nightmare/dream sequence, so it had to be weird! :)

So cool ♥

Btw, I didn't dig saki acting like a good guy in the dreams. I'd prefer if he just showed up every now and then to give (drugged?) Leo a teaching without directly affecting the events that were happening. Like an advisor if you may.

holy fudge!
this whole thing feels like an endless loop, because at both the start and end of this page leo is running from the foot....the only difference is that at the end of what looks like to be a dream, he's running from a normal looking foot soldier, and at the beginning he's running from hordes or zombie foots

it does seem like a loop! it makes more sense when you read the entire issue and see how these 2 pages connect up with the others, but that loop idea is definitely cool.
