The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Scare The Original Versions

new tmnt vs old tmnt

There’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed art show happening at Gallery Nucleus through August 3rd. This gem by artist Jeff Victor is on display, and it’s titled “Rebooted.” I knew the latest version of the TMNT group was different but didn’t realize how much has changed until I saw this picture. I don’t blame the original Raphael for being scared.

Of course, this can also be viewed as a commentary on the nature of the reboot in general. Is going “darker” a good thing, or do you miss the more lighthearted depictions of yore?
