    I have to admit - I think this was possibly the strongest issue of the arc. The artwork was flat-out beautiful and the resolution to the arc felt nice. I really like how Campbell draws the Turtles and I hope we'll see him doing the art again soon. The twist at the end was nice though I wonder if that will eventually become a problem for April.

    I am really looking forward to this Turtles in Time mini-series coming up:

    TMNT: TURTLES IN TIME Mini-Series Announced - Comic Vine

    I'm glad to see Campbell is sticking around the IDW TMNT comics for the time being. His arc on the Northhampton arc was really beautiful and I can't wait to see what he does here. I like seeing that IDW has some great things plans for the the Turtle's 30th.

    Is IDW doing a 30th anniversary issue of this comic? I read somewhere they have plans for TMNT's 30th and I assume the monthly title is a part of that.

    Yes, I've read about it somewhere with them doing several stories set in different canons. It's set for this coming Wednesday. 8 bucks and change.

    I keep thinking about dropping this comic every month and just shift to trades but the book still manages to pull me in month after month. The artwork on this book continues to be so, so good. I think this book is really underappreciated on the market.

    Really? Wow. I must've missed where they specified her gender. Props to the creative team for these books for giving us more female mutants :).

    I don't think they officially stated it in the comic (they were a bit too busy at the time to play the pronoun game) though, Shredder may of said her gender in City Fall or something...anyway, Ross Campell confirms her gender on his deviant art page

    I wasn't expecting Angel to become Nobody... or that Nobody would even appear to begin with, so that was cool :cool:.

    Pigeon Pete from the Nick cartoon showing up was also a nice surprise, and provided a good chuckle in the comic, though I wonder if his intelligence is ever going to evolve to where he's useful to Hob :sweat:?

    And to add a third surprise, Slash gaining intelligence is quite interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing how his character will now develop now that he can finally properly talk and think. Maybe he'll start using more weapons now?

    I wonder what those red-eyed shadows lurking behind Leo were?

    So is the Rat King Kitsune's "sibling"? That's an interesting twist. This book is really taking some chances. I also like the implication that Leo might go back and do some double agent work with the Foot to find out what Shredder is doing. That's what is implied and it would make for a neat storyline. I'm wondering where this whole Shredder and Krang thing is going to go too.

    I am glad to see April's parents popping in but I am sure they will regret that in time.

    Interesting, sounds like they might be incorporating the Pantheon as well.

    So this issue might have some big implications. It looks like the Turtles may have been inadvertently responsible for their own deaths in their past lives. That's a really risky thing to do. A fantastic issue though. It's amazing how consistently great these Turtle comics from IDW are.
