Readers of the ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic were thrown for a shock recently, but it seems there’s a whole lot more to the story than it first appeared.

Spoilers ahead for IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Some leaked pages from the upcoming Free Comic Book Day issue of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have arrived online, revealing how they’ll follow up the shockingly brutal death of Donatello (at the hands of Bebop and Rocksteady) in the most recent issue. Turns out Donnie isn’t really dead — but he’s not exactly alive, either.

As these leaked panels reveal, Donatello did survive the beating, but not exactly in a way fans might’ve thought. As Bleeding Cool notes, Donnie will now be functioning in a decked-out robotic body, which features some nice weapons. Check out a few of the leaked panels below (including the big reveal) and let us know what you think of the twist:
