Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #124

From IDW Publishing this week is a special festive feeling issue in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #124.

The TMNT and their Mutant Town neighbors celebrate the holidays, but not everyone is enjoying the times-the Turtles feel the absence of Master Splinter, tensions are rising in the neighborhood, and a new threat is emerging. Can the Turtles find their way back to the spirit of the season before disaster strikes?

A special Christmas issue that takes us around Mutant Town.

I like the ‘Silent Night’ aspect of this, it makes you look closer at the action within the panels.

There is a lot to take in, in what can be a fast or a slow issue. Depending on your reading preference. Nevertheless, this issue packed a nice amount of story, with some interesting aspects to it.

There is the Weasels, and what they are up to. There is a moment of joy for the usually dower Hob, and that was nice to see. Perhaps there is some hope for him.

Meanwhile, the ghost of Christmas(es) past – The Shredder – makes his moves. Still in the shadows, and still doing what he can. His role is yet to be fully determined, but I am enjoying these brief cameos to build him up.

There is a lot of Christmas feeling in this, with the family and the festive time in Mutant Town.

This was well shown in the art, with it doing a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of what was going on and the motion.

Merry Christmas to the TMNT!
