Master Splinter in "Nothing to Fear"



http://oldmanwinters.deviantart.com/gallery/33022088


At long last, my first Ninja Turtles fan comic is ready to launch! Over the course of October, I'll be posting all 12 full-color pages of the story inspired by my previous piece, "Splinter's Worst Nightmare." It's newly christened title is "Nothing to Fear." October was the perfect month to debut this for the public, since it certainly has some Halloween appropriate vibe!

Story Description:
Master Splinter's rigorous mental discipline in the way of Bushido is about to be put to the ultimate test! While meditating in the secret sewer lair of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, some of his most feared adversaries from the past suddenly converge upon him at once! Who is responsible for this home invasion? And how will Splinter ever escape from this horrible surprise?

Seeing how this is my first attempt at doing something so ambitious as a comic, I do appreciate comments, compliments, and even critiques so that I can improve my artistic skills. Over the last couple of months, I've learned basic competence in how to color digitally in Gimp.

EDIT:
You can now download the whole comic (with bonus content) in CBZ format!

Believe it or not, you might not actually have to do much reading!

Since I am a novice at the comic book medium, I've decided to avoid the challenge of making room for word balloons and worrying about dialogue. This comic won't feature much text, but it will advance the story through careful layouts and artistic poses that suggest energy and motion. I've tried to play to my strengths and sidestep my weaknesses.

Crap...I have to pay $1.25? Ok, winters, where do I send the money.

Looks promising.

PayPal is acceptable!

I thought about giving my cover a barcode to complete the illusion, but I realized it would be too hard to make one up and I didn't want to steal one from a real comic. Plus, I hate barcodes that cover up key aspects of the cover art.

EDIT:
I guess making a barcode isn't really so hard after all!

How's this?

And it'll fit right under the "Has Splinter's Worst Nightmare..." text.
