Some thoughts on this weeks comics from IDW Publishing – Transformers #19 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #104
A new arc begins here!
“All Fall Down.” Cybertron is in crisis. Calamity has befallen the planet. This is Megatron’s moment to show just how much power he has and to deal with any problems accordingly…Anna Malkova (Artist) Bethany McGuire-Smith (Artist) Thomas Deer (Cover Artist) Brian Ruckley (Author)
After the chaos of the previous two issues, things seem to be settling. If by settling you mean that Megatron is making his play and the Autobots are reacting!
The most interesting part of this was Bumblebee. His card has been marked for some time, and it looks like he’s no longer undercover. The attack on Bumblebee was well done, especially the glowing eyes.
You can feel the frustration of both Megatron and
Optimus Prime Orion Pax and the ending looks like things are going to get worse – I had to remember who Mindwipe was, and then I was like “Oh sh**”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #104
The Turtles confront Old Hob and challenge his vision of a Mutant Town under his control and the startling secret of his new enforcers is revealed! It’s a pivotal moment for the Mutanimals, Mutant Town, and all mutantdom!Sophie Campbell (Author, Artist, Cover Artist) Kevin Eastman (Author) Tom Waltz (Author)
This was an emotional issue. It’s great seeing them all getting back on their feet. The Turtles now have a way forward in their life, a way to connect with each other and a new plan. It all fits together well and this was a heartfelt moment. An excellent read and means that the next issues will be setting up the next step in this storyline. The mutants have a home and they can do normal things.
