From solicits: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #36 Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman (w) • Mateus Santolouco (a) • Santolouco, Eastman (c) Leonardo and Splinter plan for the coming war with Shredder. As they meditate on what their true path must be, they are engulfed by darkness. And from that darkness emerges... the Rat King! Will his meddling with their minds lead to salvation or madness?
So excited for Rat King. He's always been one of my favorite villains and I've been waiting for him to appear in the IDW series. Can't wait til July! Awesome art as always. You're one of my favorite artist on the book.
It looks like Leo is trying to do a pommel strike - only katanas don't really have pommels. It might also be some kind of ramming / body slam attack. But he's too close to use the sharp edge of his right hand blade, and the left hand is too far away to bring to the front quickly enough. He probably wants to knock his target (is that Splinter?) out somehow.
