Strike dat earth, little homie! My odyssey with Shovel Knight has been one of sadness and brutal happiness I would’ve never imagined possible. This is currently my choice for game of the year and a video game masterpiece in every possible aspect.
I’ll talk about how this game rocks another time, for now I’ll share this badass fanart done by Valentin Seiche, another French artist who has collaborated with Guillaume Singelin in the Chaud Nem Jump comic compilations.

These Ninja Turtle designs are totally radical, dude. Thomas Mikkelsen designed each turtle with some personality aside from eating pizza and using a weapon. I’m really digging his take on Donnie and the fact I don’t need to listen to him talk to know he loves video games/technology and is a bit repressed.
I haven’t seen the Michael “I explode everything that explodes” Bay movie adaptation, perhaps for the same reason I don’t watch the new animations on TV or film. This series was immensely popular with me and my brothers as we were growing up and I want to preserve whatever good image of the characters I have left in my mind, although I would totally go apeshit if these designs were used on a comic book.
There is so much more brutal art for the Ooze Palooza zine over at Mikkelsen’s tumblr, you should go see it. Kowabung, son.

“Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.” — Tony Zhou
