As I'm sure you know by now, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are in full swing with their travels to Dimension X. General Krang is on trial to be kept in jail for the rest of his days, but our heroes-in-a-half-shell must become heroes-of-the-universe as they venture to find the witnesses that will keep Krang behind bars. And with assassin Hakk-R following their every move, their mission is proving harder than expected.
Now I get it. TMNT has one of the most popular ongoing comic book storylines on the shelves, and it's no wonder that one could become confused by all of their separate mini-series and more.
What's particularly notable about Clue and what separates it from the original movie is that it lets the audience in on the joke. This whole series is being manipulated by two people throughout the comic, and writer Paul Allor wants you to be completely aware of that. He's not interested in making the big reveal that the butler did it when half of the audience reading this comic probably is aware that is going to be the end. So, he is showing you right away that the butler, Upton, is indeed the likely culprit and is manipulating this entire story. But, he's not alone, and this is what changes things from the original film, where Mr. Boddy is simply a consequence of the plot. Here, he is indeed an important part of the book.
Horror comes in many forms, but great horror sticks with you long after you’ve finished, haunting both waking hours as well as dreams, if you’re lucky. The Eyrie is a wonderful addition to the horror world, with stark images of black-and-white creatures that one definitely never wants to meet.
Within Grass Kings #6 comes the most human moment of the series so far. One that captures sadness and hope not only on an interpersonal level between characters, but also in the metaphorical imagery that’s used. It's a visual poetry that resonates, which puts Grass Kings at the best that it can be and what I think Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins are striving for as creators. From the feels I was feeling, it gives me hope for the story as it progresses.
Redlands drops you into the middle of a bad situation that you know is only going to get worse, and it does so with unfettered glee in the macabre and the occult.
Looks like we're getting ourselves into the next part of “Imperial Phase,” and so far, we're looking at a lot of set-up. As the solicit for this issue stated, this is an issue where Dionysus sits in a darkened room for most of it, but in an awesome way. This part of the issue runs a bit slower than we've been getting accustomed to in some of the more recent issues, but it's been an interesting way to start bringing things together as Dionysus meets with Baphomet in the Morrigan's underground.
