Well here it is, the big six page update with which I close this chapter in full color.






As I showed in page 93, Tsunami can see in somebody's Aura if they're about to be born and if they're going to die. She saw death coming, now it's revealed WHO'S death she saw coming.


April's shock at Tsunami's revelation is cut short when yet another thing happens.

(Been a while since I drew all three of the Tanaka sisters.)


Konami decides to set a plan in motion.


The Turtles aren't the only ones ready to put some plans into action.

Yes, "less bulky" is my excuse for not having to draw Kraang Subprime's usual expanded Irma suit, since it's such a PAIN!

You're drawing a lot! How much time do you spend on each page? It would be cool to see your working process with scans of the different stages of a page (sketch, pencils, inking, shading...).

The way I do it is usually by drawing out the panels first before I start to work on the sketching out of the scene. After I got my characters looking the way I want them to look, I'll start inking them.

And even then, I might decide to scrap a page, such as this one here. This unfinished page shows my way of working.


I might look at a page for hours before I decide to take it to the final stage and start coloring it. There are very few (if any) reject pages that I colored and decided "NAAAAH!"

It's pretty much like doing a classical painting, I might spend full weeks on doing a multiple page update.

Well, with Chapter Ten over, so is the "Divided we stand" story line. Time start a new chapter.

Here's Karai charging at her clones, it's a direct tribute to Kevin Eastman's work for "TMNT Artobiography"
https://www.idwpublishing.com/wp-con..._artocvr11.jpg

There's a very big hint in what's about to happen in the way I depicted Karai here.

So onto the story itself.

That painting was originally used as the cover of Collected Book IV:

Let's get back to the bathroom at Shredder's old Lair where Karai decides a change of Wardrobe is in order...


And introducing Karai's new outfit.

God this page was so much fun to do.

Having proven herself a world class seamstress, Caroline gets her first glimpse into human habits. Such as Raphael sarcastically teasing Karai about being Leo's main squeeze and genuinely being surprised when Karai isn't jumping for joy, like Raph said she would.

Karai's outfit is based on Kitty Pryde's from the "Mystery in Madripoor" story line but with the Pulverizer's Turtle suit mixed in.

A new update and I'm slowly but surely trucking on here.

- Edit. This is what you get when you upload at three in the morning, I got the size of the images all wrong. So I completely had to re-scan the images and edit them the proper way. And I was wondering why those two pages looked so much smaller than the rest of them...

First of all, I'm sorry that it took me longer than anticipated to continue this story. I had a couple of failures and false starts before coming up with what you see now.

Continuing from last page, Here's Raph and Karai talking strategies and about getting the band back together. This is also the first time I depicted Karai's turtle suit in color.

Time for a new chapter.



As we saw a few chapters ago, Baxter Stockman made Kraang Subprime a new Irma body.

So how will our resident Karen...err I mean Kraang Commander take to that new body?

Well, with tragedy heading its way towards our heroes, Leo decides to make Karai feel better...

The first panel is of course a salute to the Mirage Comics Issue where April looks at the EPF raid on the TCRI building, knowing that the Turtles are in there.

I'm on a roll, here's three new pages and things are getting DARK!




Kraang Subprime DOES make a good point here, why should they spare the Riviera when Terraforming the planet?

Well, I guess it's obvious where the fourth panel came from, it's my salute to the famous scene of Bane breaking Batman.

Well it's curtain call for Baxter Stockman, or is it really?

So what would be the deal with this Karai clone here?

New page.


And I find it a shame that nobody leaves comments anymore, it's so rewarding to see that people enjoy my work.

I'm fully committed to make this 200+ page story, so there's plenty of chapters still upcoming.

Well, here we are with an update and the Purple dragons are reduced to door mats once again, being blissfully unaware on WHO exactly is handing their butts on a silver platter.



And Karai's past as being Shredder's lieutenant also comes into play.

Well today had been my birthday, I turned 45 and so to celebrate, here's an update.


I'm sure that fans of the IDW series recognize this scene, it's the opening scene from "Desperate Measures" part 2 as drawn by Matteus Santolouco. It depict Slash reading John Steinbeck's "The grapes of wrath" to the Pigeons.

In my version, those pigeons include Slash' fellow Mutanimal, Pete.


Apparently, Karai clones aren't as appreciative of classic literature.

Luckily, Slash still has the ability to retract his head into his shell.


Okay, I'll admit it, I was laughing out loud when I thought of this scene.

It also fits in with the TMNT series to put in Easter Eggs, so what is VERY clearly a Poké ball wouldn't look out of place in the series. Not to mention Mikey using Ash Ketchum's signature catchphrase.

The first inkling of a change of tactics by The Kraang is revealed to the Turtles and the Mutanimals.

But why is that change?

Leave it to Pigeon Pete to figure it out.

Gah, that dialog was so much fun to write.
