‘Invasion of the Triceratons’ Part 1 of 5. A small force of armed extra-dimensional Triceratons have arrived in the heart of NYC! Will the Earth welcome them or destroy them? Bullet points: * The start of a major new story arc!
Spinning out of the Trial of Krang, we get a new story arc for the TMNT
I think that excellent cover gives you a good idea of what is coming for the world!
The build up in this issue was immense, things could have actually worked really well, but the returning Agent Bishop made things worse! There was a point of hope, but you just knew that it was going to go wrong. I liked the short-lived happy homecoming in the beginning, as the TMNT arrive back in their lair, then things rapidly go downhill. We get a flashback to how this all came to be, and the build up to the big battle.
There are some excellent action pieces here, and some interesting battle tactics going on, until we get the intervention at the end – will that make things better or worse? This was a good introductory issue to the new arc!
