Ruiz Burgos Makes Brutal Vintage Covers for DC Comics
Yesterday, the popular Argentinian comic artist, Ricardo Siri Liniers, started publishing some rather “different” comic strips he made for the Spanish magazine, Mongolia, on his official Facebook account.
Update (July 2nd): this week the author has blessed us with 4 new irredeemable strips which I’ve placed at the end of this post.
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.

I’ve never watched a full season of any Gundam show, but thanks to these designs by the lead animator in Eureka 7, I think that will change with Gundam Reconguista in G. (more…)
