After last issue’s feel good story. The TMNT continue to find their way in this new world. Some of my thoughts below on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #106 from IDW Publishing
The mutagen bomb’s fallout continues to affect NYC in increasingly disturbing ways. As the government struggles to come to grips with a growing humanitarian crisis, mutants start to go missing. The TMNT trace the clues to the waterfront and find something terrifying that is now living in the depths!Sophie Campbell (Author) Nelson Daniel (Artist, Cover Artist)
The brothers seem to be settling into a new routine. And things seem to be of a happier way. I did wonder if the cover was a tease of the things to come in future issues. The last issue did seem to tease the return of the Ultrons, but I think that is too soon.
The brothers seem to be getting back together, even Raph seems to be getting a sense of humour – although it doesn’t take a lot for him to go to dark place.
The combination of their new duties and the role they are taking on is very interesting, and they seem to be making some good headway in the community of mutants.
Of course there are teething troubles and Leo seems to be getting the brunt of them.
Along with those teething troubles, there seems to be something darker in the mutant town – this looks to be the first bad that the ‘new’ turtles have to face.
Meanwhile Baxter Stockman seems to be up to his old tricks.
This was an interesting read for the new status quo. I like that not too many new threats are being (re)introduced and the art style is very dynamic.
