Just announced on her twitter yesterday. A 4 parter starring Karai, Koya and Bludgeon, featuring a new character.

Campbell is also doing the 4-page backup for each issue.

Neat! So, Sophie, if you're reading this, do you have some artwork you're allowed to share?

Not surprised this is happening, just didn't know it would be Campbell. Yay!

Awesome! I really like Sophies stuff. About time we find out what happened to Karai, Koya and Bludgeon. :D

I guess this will be Issues #11-14? I doubt they'd split this story across two TPBs, so I'm thinking we've got two unknown issues after "Metalhead 2.0" to round out the second Universe collection...

I'm sure that'll be dope. I've really been eager for some Karai.

We haven't seen Karai since issue 50, so it has been a long time. Both in real life and in issue count.

Like CKD said, we knew it was coming we just did not know when we would check up on Karai, Bukdgeon, and Koya. I am surprised that it is planned for four issues to tell. I would have expected one to two issues to tell the story. This will likely unfold while Krang is on trial and the TMNT are in Dimension X. Could there be something she is up to while they are hat the Turtles will come back to and have to deal with?

I assumed 9-12, but I didn't think of the trades.... you're probably right.

Could be as many as three issues between Metalhead 2.0 and this arc, which means it could run between #12 and #15 to coincide with Trial of Krang (which is only three issues itself but would then end at the same time).

Of course it would be :P . She's probably the best person for doing an arch with the three of them.

I thought it was confirmed by Bobby that thevMetalhead 2.0 storyline was two parts. That being said, why not a one-shot story between them? Also, I believe the Karai, storyline will leave consequences that the TMNT will deal with in #76 of the ongoing after Trial of Krang. The thing is Karai's story in Japan is four issues whereas the Krang storyline is three.

Because the next trade is gonna be #6 through #10. If they want to keep this Campbell story on the same TPB, It has to start either with #11 or #12. (TMNTU Volume 3 being #11-15).

Bobby actually slipped the announcement for this into the letters column of TMNT #65, in a reply to a reader. And Erik Burnham is scripting! :D

Here's some concept art I did several months ago, we've been developing the story for quite a while:

None of my design work has been approved yet, so things may change.

Anyway, glad you guys are excited! :D

So excited!! Wondering who our mysterious new mutant is. Maybe Dirtbag? It looks sort of moleish with those vicious claws.

Looks kinda like another fish/aquatic mutant to me, although its hard to tell.

Karai looks like she has been doing a few pushups, nice.

I love the long hair on Karai in that art, I hope you keep it for the final design. I don't think we've ever seen long-haired Karai in any other series.

ChosenOne
01-14-2017, 10:33 PM
So Karai's posse includes a land mutant, a sea mutant, and an aerial mutant. Nice. :D

Seeing that art makes me wish there was a mutant sloth (one of my favorite mammals) in the franchise somewhere.

This is great news! I'm so excited for this :D. And what better artist to draw this than Campbell! The new mutant looks interesting, I like the design. Hard to make out what kind of animal it is though. Guess we'll have to wait for an official confirmation to know for sure.

COOL! THE WORD IS OUT!

This started cooking a long while back. I'm super-psyched to be here for this.

I can promise some crazy, crazy things.

(Sophie may hate me later, BUT I'M WILLING TO RISK THAT FOR YOU!)

Seriously, again, glad to be back playing in this sandbox, and with one of my favorite characters.

Psyched. I always love Karai, though I feel she's been a bit underserved/underdeveloped in the comics of late. There's a ton of potential there, though, and I'm excited to see it play out.

Badger, normal or honey varieties, but does look like a mole to me.

I'm sure we can just call it a badgermole for the moment and resist letting fly with the Last Airbender jokes.

But yeah, I think it's a mole too. Has a pretty moley face and scruffiness too it. And the big weird hands.

Why horses?

It's a running joke that horses are one of the things modern comic artists hate having to draw. (:

As for this arc, I'm excited. There's an angle for Bludgeon that is a lot of fun... it's a specific nod to (non-Turtle) movies and comics that I think'll make him even more unique to things than a mutant hammerhead already is. (: Or hope.

As to that mystery character, that's just Jim. Don't mess around with Jim*.







*Character is NOT actually Jim, but should nevertheless not be messed around with.

All right, Erik, you have now opened the floodgates.

I'm not asking, I'm DEMANDING. This new mutant needs to kill someone, and then Karai needs to glare at it and exclaim, "He's DEAD, Jim!"

I will accept nothing less. :trazz:

Just a random, off-the-wall thought, but having just watched The Secret Life of Pets and enjoyed the character of Tiberius immensely, I can't wait to see Koya's reaction if/when she crosses paths with Pete. :lol:

haven't seen that flick but yeah, Koya and Pete interacting would be pure comedy gold. My vote is for Allor and Kuhn to handle that if it ever happens
