A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Just Died

Donatello 4

Captain America.  Spider-Man.  Superman.  The list of heroes whose comic book deaths broke our hearts goes on and on and this week, another name was added to the list.  While this character may not have been a “superhero”, per se, there is no doubt that his actions both on the page and on the big screen were heroic and selfless, and many comic book readers considered him a favorite of his group.  After 30 years of being one of the heroes on a half shell, Donatello has been killed at the hands of Bebop and Rocksteady.

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerd based art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every net based nook and cranny. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly Nerd Art Dumps.

Dr. Teeth, Animal, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice and Zoot, the one and only Electric Mayhem -before Lips came in and ruined it with his trumpet. Douglas Holgate made this kick ass looking tour poster that looks to be pulled from our parents closets. This must have been an early in their career though since Zoot is nowhere to be seen, either that or this was during the first of his many drug-related offences. [The House Of Skullduggery]

While we’re gonna have to wait until 2014 for the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie, there is the new animated show coming out later this year. Over at Bleedingcool.com they got their hands on some animation stills that show character traits. All the old favourites are in there: Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo, Splinter, April O’Neill, that big pink blob thing…

Presumably the Kraang are something to with Krang, since there certainly seems to be a family resemblance. There’s some new weapons in the group shot so we might be seeing some different weapons for the turtles during the show’s run.

What do you think about the animation style? We won’t know the tempo for the show until we get some clips with sound. Until then, this NerdBastard is holding out hope for something that excites both the younger audience and those of us that have been fans of the turtles for years.
