Some TMNT stuff was always meant for grownups.
The Tales of Leonardo: Blind Sight is a four-issue comics miniseries in the Mirage continuity, published by Mirage Studios between June and September 2006. It directly follows the events of Tales of the TMNT volume 2 issue 5: Blind Faith, when Leonardo was blinded by the Blind Ninja and accidentally killed a homeless man. As with Blind Faith, the story is portrayed through the filter of Leo's blindness, where he has a basic awareness of the people and objects around him but imagines them as nothing more than silhouettes.
