New Work from Ben Bates

To celebrate the end of his penciling run on IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ben Bates has been churning out an epic quantity of sketch requests as part of his morning warm-up. You can check out the whole run so far over in his gallery.


Fortunately, even after TMNT #20 hits shelves, you’ll still have plenty of chances to see Ben’s work in the wild. Last month saw the publication of the 72-page Star Wars digest Clone Wars: Defenders of the Lost Temple, which Ben describes likens to “a Saturday morning adventure cartoon.”


He’s also been announced on the My Little Pony Micro-Series, where he’ll be illustrating an entire issue of Pinkie Pie’s adventures. The comic is set to come out June 26th.
