ZEN Intergalactic Ninja by DaveRapoza ZEN Intergalactic Ninja by DaveRapoza
ZEN Intergalactic Ninja is from an old short lived comic from the 90s that I was into as a kid. Well, I was more into the toys than anything else, don't really think I actually read the comics haha.

Just wanted to do something quick between the turtles and work.

Series 2 - Very Limited Print run available here!

This is great! just want to say that seeing this has given me a kick in the backside about my attempt at re vamping 'nightraven' a character from the old 1980's Captain Britain run by Moore and Grant - so this has inspired me to dust off my gimp and photoshop and get back to work on Night raven. Never going to be as incredible as this but i'm a better writer than painter lol
amazing and keep up the good work!

Oh so rarely do I ever hear about ZEN. Thank you so much for this! Was definitely the best part of my childhood. :)

Awesome. Already a fan of yours from both the Turtles series and Magic (just realized you were the same guy!) and I too was a fan of Zen as a kid, especially in conjunction with the Turtles (to be honest, I think he was created to kind of mooch off their buzz, but I digress). Incredible work as always.

Oh gosh I remember getting a Zen comic along with some TMNT comics I think. Probably found them for a buck a piece in a used bookstore. I loved looking for comics in stores full of musty old books lol Found so many great things. Great job! Your gallery is amazing.

The balance of colour movement and atmosphere is very successful, plus you solved the dynamic problem of creating movement through simplicity line rhythm. Great job.
