Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2020

After the big issue #100 the first TMNT annual of the year. Some thoughts on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2020 from IDW Publishing.

The war is over. The Dragon is destroyed. The city is saved. But at what cost?

Splinter is gone, the Turtles are in disarray, and the Shredder has returned. But all is not as it seems as the Turtles’ most-feared enemy struggles with this new opportunity to regain his honor.

Meanwhile, a nearly decimated Foot Clan belongs to Karai, but can she truly rise to the task in the shadow of its greatest warrior? And how does a newly-changed Leatherhead fit into a post-mutation NYC?

This is an excellent taster and primer of things to come. And things that may have happened. The Rat King is at the centre of all this, making visits to Shredder, Karai and Leatherhead.

Shredder fist, he’s still in a small position after being brought back from the dead, with Splinter’s words ringing in his ears. The Rat King has a role for him, but he seems to want the old Shredder back, and that looks like it’s not happening. It’s a good position to keep him in at the moment, as he struggles with his new life.

Karai, is more like the old Shredder – leading the Foot Clan and looking at the clean up. With get more details here about her deal with Old Hob and the Mutanimals. I like the comments about Baxter too.

Leatherhead is in a bad place – we saw this at the end of the #100 and I like that he’s still fighting it. The return of the Ultroms is interesting and looks to be a slow burn problem for the TMNT in the furture.

This was a good annual, with a decent amount of action, and some nice teases and links as to what is to come.
