Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles #25 Preview/Review

“CITY FALL” part 4: City Fall continues as Shredder reveals his new second-in-command: Leonardo! While the underworld readies their armies, the Turtles must come together if they have any hope of saving their brother. Don’t miss this landmark 25th issue that sees the launch of a full-scale war on New York City! The Savate, Foot Clan, and Slash are all back — along with a couple of shocking special guests!

 

Mini Review:

The 4th issue in the City Fall story arc kicks the story into a full gear as the war between the Foot and The Savate is about to begin. Shredder is pleased with Leo’s performance, Splinter decides to make a difficult choice by joining a sworn enemy, and Karai has her own plans which involves creating two fan favorite mutants to be her subordinates.

Santolouco’s art is great, but can’t help to feel the Nick’s TMNT influence, which sometimes hurt the visuals especially when it comes to Donatello and Michelangelo, who seemed that they are getting younger by the issue.

Make way for BeBop and Rocksteady in the IDW TMNT Comics

Big news for fans of the 80’s show. IDW has just announced during their San Diego Comic panel that fan favorites Bebop and Rocksteady will make their IDW debut after the events of City Fall. Not only that, but a cover art for a Villain micro issue dedicated to the duo was officially released. Check it out below:

Other info from the IDW TMNT Panel (courtesy of Comic Vine)

  • Expect Karai to play a bigger role in the conflict as Leo grows closer to Shredder. This is obvious but awesome nonetheless.
  • The team says they want to keep introducing elements from everything we’ve seen in other incarnations of the Turtles (cartoons, movies, each comic series).
  • Hun will debut in issue #25.
  • They provided a first look at issue #29 (post ‘City Fall’) and the story is called ‘Northampton.’ It’ll be four issues and illustrated by Ross Campbell.
  • They revealed the always awesome Mateus is onboard to be the artist as long as possible. Much more to come from him.
  • Alopex’s micro will definitely have repercussions.
  • Karai’s micro written by Burnham. It surrounds her frustration over the Foot Clan’s direction.The issue’s antagonist is Dark Leo and we got to see a glimpse of them clashing.

TMNT #22 Preview and Review

 

Review: The wait is finally over, and IDW’sTMNT’s most anticipated arc, City Fall is at hand. The issue dives into the story right for the first page, as we learn The Shredder is Planning Something big. Shredhead’s plan includes capturing Raph and Casey to lure the rest of the turtles into a trap. Without spoiling much, the story is a real page turner and full of shock and awe. The great Tom Waltz is definitely at his finest with Issue #22.

The art is also as beautiful as ever, as Santa Louco’s art is fantastic, especially the fight panels, that feature the most fluid and dynamic drawn action we have seen in a long time. City Fall’s first issue is simply superb and fans where were hyped by the storyline will not be disappointed. All we have to do now is start counting the days until Issue 23 gets released. Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles #22 will hit store shelves tomorrow. Make sure to get your copy!

Score: 10/10   (Superb)

The next BIG TMNT event is about to start! Get ready for City Fall!!!!

 

Next week will mark the debut of an explosive TMNT story arc that will change the turtles forever. The new arc promises twits and surprises as well as characters we have not seen in the IDW continuity. Tom Waltz and KEvin Eastman have sat down with the good folks at CBR to discuss this upcoming event. Below is a part of that interview:

CBR News: With “City Fall” approaching, can you bring readers up to date on what’s been happening with the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” so far?

 

Tom Waltz: Well, the Turtles, alongside their father Splinter and good friends April O’Neil and Casey Jones, have experienced a number of highs and lows since we first began the series at IDW. We learned early on that the mutated turtles and their rat father are, in fact, reincarnated ninja from Feudal Japan, having been ruthlessly executed by Splinter’s (nee Hamato Yoshi) arch-rival from that same time period, one Oroku Saki.

Review/PReview of Secret History of the foot Clan: The mini Series ends with a bang!

009

The secret history of the foot took us all by surprise, as the previous issues offered strong storytelling and beautiful art. this final issue is no exception, except for an odd design change for some of the turtles.

Without spoiling the story, Secret History of The Foot Clan #4 concludes the mini series and offers many answers to those wondering about the history of the shredder. Not only do we learn how he came to power, but also how he was resurrected and why does he have against Krang. Top notch story telling i tell you that ;)
