Two stories in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #23 – “…And Out Came The Reptiles” and “Nobody Cares”
The first story features some of the Mutanimals, with Seymore looking worse for ware. He is trying to be cheered up though, and Mondo does seem to have the best of intentions in place – although it doesn’t seem to be working. Mondo is really struggling with this, and luckily he’s got some help in to calm him down. it’s quite a deep part of the story, with Michaelangelo making some very good comments, and helping Mondo work around his issues. Michaelangelo is working very well as a calming influence, as well as helping on the more physical aspects. Things don’t look good as we get to the cliffhanger on the first part….
The next story is a nice twist on the story, and the addition of Null is well done. I like the fight scene, and the way it is all told. the darkness of the art and the colours works really well. This is something I can see us having a bit of a callback to in the future with Null
