Forever a teenager under his shell. Good bye my friend.

Kowabunga dude!

Don’t know much about TMNT comics, but if they’re anything like DC or Marvel then I’d say don’t shed tears for him - heaven has revolving doors in comicbookland.

Odd decision for any long-running story, but comic book characters sometimes have a habit of resurrecting. I know nothing about the TMNT comic characters apart from their names and their rat master, and I’m usually much more invested in a good setting than in the characters. Characters come and go, but a good and living setting endures.

So, I guess you could equate others’ reactions to this, with my gut-reaction to the doom of the Warhammer world as we know it in the End Times, with a setting reboot following that. Thankfully, in Warhammer that’s easy to brush off as a possible future or a vision of Chaos, and enjoy the doomsday Ragnarok story as such to the full for what it is. :slight_smile:


That one-armed robot turtle distracts me way too much from the seriousness in the rest of the image.


I need to keep this news from my four-year-old son. Donatello is his favourite TMNT (and mine!). He’ll be gutted when he finds out!
