Reviews: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Dick Tracy: Forever

Some thoughts on the latest issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plus the latest series from IDW – Dick Tracy: Forever

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #93

“City at War, Part 1.” The battle for control of New York City begins! As the city splinters into different human, mutant, and ninja factions, the TMNT find themselves in the middle of the chaos! Eight years of storytelling have led to this! Including the first of eight special “legacy” incentive covers: an IDW TMNT year one homage by Dan Duncan! The storyline that leads to TMNT #100 begins here!

The march to the much heralded issue #100 starts here for real, with the preparations for war on all sides.
The Foot, under splinter are making their plans, with Splinter looking at the defensive – will the results of this issue make him go on the attack?
The Turtles, on the other hand are having their own problems – making the lair safe is one thing, but the issues between Raph and Leo refuse to go away – an argument between the two would probably cool down, but there doesn’t seem the time. It all harks back to #1!
Hob and his crew are making their own plans, and I wonder if that is going to blow up with either Baxter or Bishop – making the city even more dangerous!
the beginning was interesting, with an addition to the story I didn’t expect. Roll on next issue!!

Dick Tracy: Forever #1

Dick Tracy is Sisyphus, pushing the law boulder up the hill as he struggles for reason and order in a world with none. His attempts at law and order are met with crime and chaos, in the form of unpredictable and absurd villains. But Dick Tracy will never give up trying, no matter the era or incarnation. Join Eisner Award-winning creator Michael Avon Oeming on a startling case through time and space! From the mind of Eisner Award winner Michael Avon Oeming, co-creator of Powers! Variant cover by multiple Eisner and Harvey award winner Kyle Baker!

‘The Cost Of Living’ gives us a nice re-introduction to Dick Tracy – a no-nonsense detective who goes after all the crooks! I like the build up to this one. We get a good look at Tracy’s mindset and those around him. The ending is a little bittersweet, but gives us something to revisit!
the second story features the brow, and leads up to Tracy getting a piece of kit that we all know him for. It’s a fun story and mixing in the dream sequence was well done.
Finally we get a short revisit, with Tracy getting his man – they’re not all common crooks!
I enjoyed this issue, and it’s good honest fun!
