TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Artist Responds to Michael Bay's Alien Race Idea
Comic book artist Jim Lawson is best known for his work on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and he responds to Michael Bay's controversial decision to make the turtles aliens with some humorous illustrations.
When Michael Bay said, "These turtles are from an alien race" the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' fans erupted in anger like I haven't seen since additional Watchmen comic books were announced. Over the past few days co-creator Peter Laird, voice actors, and live-action actors have all given their opinions on the matter, and today we have comic book artist Jim Lawson. He has taken to his Facebook page and has posted some new sketches poking fun at Michael Bay's comments.
"Hey Michael Bay - Them's bombs!" - Jim Lawson
Jim Lawson: "After a generations old war between their species draws to a close, the Shredulonians and the Turtles bring their latest battle to Earth..."
"Earth has got the hottest chicks."
"Just give me a walk-on role as an innocent bystander that the building falls on in the climatic final battle scene (with explosions)!"
