Turtles redux by Michael Dialynas

The vastness of the Internet beast means there's always people drawing and designing their own versions of favourite characters, most of which, to be honest, I tend to ignore. Oh, look, another interpretation of Spiderman, woot woot(!) The downside of reading so many comics related sites is that it can lead to a certain fatgue. These Teenage Mutant Turtles by Michael Dialynas caught my eye because I have a slight but spiry Turtles obsession (more of which in an upcoming review of the new micro-series). I like how he hasn't deviated too far from the characters, but just included small touches which add personality, like Donatello's goggles and Michaelangelo's shell stickers. And another good thing: they actually look young: full of attitude and sulk, whcih pleases me: I feel the 'teenage' in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has never really been fully explored somehow. Click through to Michael's site, The Wooden Crown, for a larger picture and yes, Spiderman illustrations.
