“After Archie Comics canceled the “Mighty Mutanimals” Steve Murphy (aka Dean Clarrain) told me they may return in the TMNT books one day. I was still on the Archie comp list, and one day an issue of TMNT arrived at my door.. I was stunned to see the Mutanimals had returned only to be literally murdered.
I made this sketch and ran it in the fanzine Rowrbrazzle. Somehow, Murphy saw the drawing, and called me to ask if he could run it in the TMNT comic. I said yes.
I liked drawing these characters, and the comics sold very briskly on the newsstands. I was never completely sure why the book got cancelled. ” — Mike Kazaleh;Animator, comic book artist; i.e. Mighty Mutanimals, TMNTA, Ren & Stimpy, ect. –
