True Colours

The final colour (color) cover for #50! Steve did a fantastic job - looks wicked! I really love the colour choices for the Mothman and the Bunyip! Gotta love all the reds, yellows and browns too -- very Aussie!

One last monsterism in honour of this moment:

Movie: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze
Subject: The Super Shredder

I don't think anyone saw this coming and I think every kid that saw this reacted with the same half constipated, half stupefied, back straight, eyes-in-the-spotlight look of total amazement and shock that equated to the simple "Holy Shit!" response in adults. The technical aspects of Shredder's super transformation are as flimsy as those old 5.25 inch computer disks, and the fact that he gets completely owned in a matter of screen-seconds doesn't really hamper the fact that he looks cool in the shot above. Looking back, you can imagine him being 200 feet tall and fighting the Power Rangers... man the 90's were terrible!

Too true mate! It was a pretty slick figure now that I think about it. Legs were kinda stumpy though!
