Reviews: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Dying Is Easy

Some thoughts on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #101 and Dying Is Easy #2 – out now in prints and digitally from IDW Publishing

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #101

Welcome to the new world of TMNT! After the cataclysmic events of TMNT #100, the Turtles find New York City drastically changed—new factions and enemies are on the rise, and allies are in short supply. The Turtles discover that in order to survive they will need to work together like never before!

First of all a quick comment on the recap page – 2 lines does not do justice as to what has come before…..
This is a reset button, but it works well. It at first concentrates on the condition of the brothers. Donatello is the one recording it all – I can’t say he’s keeping it together because he’s not, none of them are. Raph, being Raph has gone his own way – grumpy and in his own mind he knows what he wants. It’s interesting him wearing the black mask….
Leo seems to have withdrawn himself – into his garden and with the plants. We don’t hear from him. We don’t hear from Michaelangelo either – he’s with his pet and seems to be lost – the cat seems to be helping a little. Donatello seems to be putting things off – he knows things are wrong, but can’t get it together to deal with it.
The real problems are in Mutant Town – where Hob’s gang set of their bomb. People are helping where they can and there are some really nice character moments – but there are those who go their own way. That leads us to the end.
We only get a little of April & Stockman, and none of the Foot Clan. This was a good issue with some interesting set ups!

Dying Is Easy #2

Comedy may be hard and dying may be easy, but getting yourself off the hook for murder? For Syd Homes, that’s looking damn near impossible. The prime suspect in the death of joke stealer and general thief Carl Dixon, Syd’s on the run, and it’s going to take all of his investigative chops to suss out the real killer before he gets caught. And thrown in jail. With all the guys he locked up.

Luckily, he’s already got a couple of suspects in mind…

The investigation starts here! this is a madcap issue, with some real comedy moments – although not intended by the comedian protagonist! There are some really interesting scenes, and I get the impression that there is more to this than we thought – it looks like there are more involved in the murder and Syd has his work cut out try to find who was involved!
The art is well done – especially as this issue is more in the daylight!
