12 Days of Christmas, Day 2: Andreas Shuster’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves

It’s the second day of Christmas at ComicsAlliance, as our 12 Days of Christmas original art series continues. Every day until the 25th, we’ll be posting a new illustration from a comics creator at Periscope Studio that reinterprets the days of the traditional carol as comic book parodies.

Today, we’re featuring an illustration from a recent international visitor to the studio: Andreas Schuster, from Cologne, Germany, who brings us the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves.

While this may mark the first time the reptile ninjas have been so swept away with holiday cheer that they booted Santa out of his sleigh, inspired terror in the eyes of reindeer, or traded their traditional pizza for live birds,TMNT fans will recall equally odd behavior in the 1994 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Christmas Special, a remarkably insane live-action musical that involves rollerblades, Leonardo inexplicably singing a rasta version of “Deck the Halls,” and a rap about Christmas presents that is, no joke, called “Wrap Rap.”

We’re glad Andreas was able to tap into the Turtles’ rich tradition of temporary holiday insanity, and look forward to seeing more of his work.
