Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Pepperoni is the back-up story in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe issue 10.
- Story, Art & Letters: Sophie Campbell
The Turtles and Alopex watch Pepperoni as she sleeps, wondering what she's dreaming about. In actuality, she's dreaming of growing an anthropomorphic body like those of the Turtles, wearing a mask and fighting alongside them.
- At the end of the story, Alopex and Raphael are seen watching a Gamera film, alluding to artist/writer Sophie Campbell's legendary love of the character.
- This comic's style of lettering is atypical for an IDW TMNT comic, completely different from the series' standard all-caps typeface or the alternative typeface used in issues illustrated by Kevin Eastman. Rather, the lettering here is the same bicameral typeface used by Sophie Campbell in her unofficial TMNT webcomic Secrets of the Ooze.
