’Mukashi Mukashi’ & ‘A New Tenant’
I was asked to contribute to the Heroes in A Half Shell: A TMNT Tribute Exhibition for Gallery Nucleus, which will be opening this Saturday.
I thought it would be fun to show Splinter and crew with Shredder’s vanquished helmet, only kicking it back to the feudal age of Japan it’s based off of. No mutations and a samurai helmet.
I grew up with the 90’s TMNT and finding out that the new Krang was no longer the campy robot kangaroo pouch with alien brain baby left me nostalgic. It felt like Krang had left his out dated model back in ‘87 for a shiny new ride, and I couldn’t help thinking it’s probably still sitting around somewhere collecting dust, overgrown with plants.
I had to take some photos of some This One Summer original pages so I thought I’d share them here.
Thanks again so much to everyone who has come out to our events, including the recent signing in LA. It means a lot. <3

All right! It’s been a long time. The first volume’s been finished for a couple of weeks now, but we wanted to get the website up and running before we sprang this thing on you. And… here it is! Enjoy! There’s still a few kinks in the system and things we haven’t ironed out, but it’s 98%…
A must read. Thank you mangahakuran!
