The secret gag is that Corey Feldman was in TMNT 1 (playing Donatello) and Kevin Nash was in TMNT 2 (as Super Shredder)! What, I'm the only person that remembers all this? I guess so.
Well, this was a story arc that was relatively easy to write as I only had to tone down on the offensive bits just a little. I mean, it went over well with Khaiam's friends and family, and that's all I have as a barometer of whether I'm doing okay with the cultural jokes. No backlash = no problems. Guess I'll have to try harder this time.
Now I'll apologize for the delays. I realize that the comics have been coming out somewhat sporadically, and it's due to several factors, one of them being that we are struggling with the layout of a publication. It's more difficult than I thought it would be. The content's there but it's a matter of laying it out nicely and making sure readers get enough out of their buck. That also means bonus stuff like sketches, etc. We'll see how it goes but expect Smells Like Maturity to hit shelves sometime in April. Start saving up. Interesting trades considered.
