The brothers are finding their way in this new world. That kind of sound familiar outside of comics, but here it’s in Mutant Town!
They all are beginning to find their role in this place, and this issue concentrates on three of them. After watching some depressing news commentry Michaelangelo decides take to take matters into his own hands. His idea is an interesting one and I can see some good and bad responses coming out of it. I like the reaction shots as to what he was doing. His story links up with Donatello.
Donnie is working hard on the technical side of things. He’s fixing things, getting things working and helping set up the school. Here he comes across a problem, but Donnie has his own way of dealing with things (different to say, Raph) what do the youth want? WiFi!
Jennika has her own problems. Being an ex-assassin and member of the Foot, a normal life was something that she was going to have trouble adapting to. This sort showed this here as she looks at the music side of her life, but the violence is hard to avoid.
This was another good primer issue, with some excellent scene setting. The layout of the town is result being into your head. This also builds up the relationships between the Splinter Clan and the residents.
There is some excellent art going on here, with the action scenes showing some excellent movement – or lack of movements as shown at the end of the issue.
A quick word about that ending – that was a nice set up!
