The Turtles have been popping back up in popularity since the 2000’s, and aside from new video games, and comic crossovers, their movies are extremely well known.  (Well known and well liked are two different things), but weather you knew it or not, the Leo, Mikey, Don, and Raph were destined for a comeback. The stakes seem quite a bit higher, as New York appears to be invaded by someone (#BringDatKrang) and there’s also the arrival of Casey Jones.  It may be quite early to tell, but this will probably be a much better film than the original.

X-Men Apocalypse (oddly enough) was announced before its predecessor (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) was even released.  That being the case, the hype surrounding this film has been palpable, and now we know it’s for good reason.  The (young) X-Men squaring off with the most feared advisory in their universe seems like a good idea on paper, but seeing some of it come to life is downright exciting.  Check the method below.

Everything That Was Wrong With The Ninja Turtles Has Been Fixed.

The artist known simply as Clog Two, hails from Singapore City, Singapore, and has done something that Micheal Bay, and $125 million dollars couldn’t… Reinvent the Ninja Turtles, and make them look good.  The new look of the Turtles in this years summer fiasco was something many classic fans had issues with.  (It was stated that using facial motion capture wouldn’t translate properly if the digital turtles didn’t have nostrils and lips like their live action counterparts.)  But Clog has managed to do them justice, illustrating the TMNT heroes and villains with tattoos and accessories that compliment the characters.  If you want a print for yourself , hit up Clog at clog02@electrocaine.com, they sell for around USD320.

The New Ghostbusters.


There are some truly great graphic artists out there online who turn in work that rivals those of the professionals who get paid the big bucks. Evidence such another great talent has just manifested itself over at SlashFilm in the form of some great computer animated character designs for one of my favorite films of all-time: Ghostsbusters. The man behind the work in question is Fabrizio Fioretti who merely worked on these designs in his free time on evenings and weekends. The collection reminds me so much of the ‘TMNT‘ version of the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles.  These are truly breathtaking and make our proton-packing heroes look like they just came straight out of Pixar Animation Studios. Here are Fabrizio Fioretti’s computer animated Ghostbusters characters.

The Real Life Ninja Turtles?


What if Shredder, Splinter, Rocksteady and Bebop were real? What if the toxic ooze that created the 90’s action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spilled into the sewers today? The results would probably look a lot like the pictures above.  Now for a confession, before this post, only my immediate family knew that I had an unhealthy obsession with the Ninja Turtles.  TMNT backpacks, jackets, umbrellas, bed sheets, from the years of 3 to 5, I was all about it.  So when I saw the works of artist Dave Rapoza, it hit close to home.  Rapoza has updated the TMNT, and given them all a brand new real-life look. Even the creepy little fly villain, Baxter, from the cartoon got a makeover.  Each new piece is both gorgeous and horrifying at the same time.  And although there are no pics of the star turtles themselves, it definitely makes me yearn for the old days of the Foot Clan.
