Some thoughts on Transformers #16 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #102
Riots rock Cybertron as the delicate balance of peace is fully disrupted. Amidst the anti-Autobot, anti-Decepticon, and anti-Rise actions, can Orion Pax, Chromia, and a Decepticon finally link the deaths of Brainstorm and Rubble to a larger conspiracy?CREATORS:

There’s some really good political bytes here. I like that Megatron doesn’t know it all, and he just has to react to what is happening. His reaction to being told about Soundwave takes a second look! Bumblebee may be in some trouble as someone may have snitched him out – it’s obvious when you think about it!
There is some action at the end, but it’s very one sided and it seems there will be the spark to start the war soon!
This issue kept me reading!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #102
The Turtles are separated, each trying to find their own way forward. With their absence, Old Hob fills the power vacuum with the help of some very unusual new mutants!Kevin Eastman (Author) Tom Waltz (Author) Sophie Campbell (Author, Artist, Cover Artist)
That was interesting! We get to find out what Hob is up to, and it doesn’t look good. This may come to a head quite violently in the mutant area of town. There are some good moments with the brothers, with Donnie and Leo really struggling. Michaelangelo is really sad and it’s hard seeing him like this.
There are some good heroic moments too, with some fightback against those mutants who take it too far…
A good set up without showing too much!
