‘TMNT: Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything #4’ – Advance Comic Book Review

Man, comic book storylines sure make a difference when they’re released every week rather than every month (like most ongoing storylines tend to do).  It’s been almost a month since I first started reading the latest miniseries from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything, but let me just say that if you haven’t read any of the TMNT miniseries before, this one is a must!

In the very first issue, Donatello discovers the skeletons of both Bebop and Rocksteady in the Museum of Natural History. When good friend Renet suddenly appears in front of their very eyes, you just know she’s about to take our heroes-in-a-half-shell on a time-traveling adventure they’ll never forget.  And she does!  Our adventurers are led on time threads that go all the way back to the Cretaceous Period, then to 2012 (before they became mutants), where Bebop and Rocksteady team up with themselves to literally—well—destroy everything!

Meanwhile, evil-doer Savanti Romero has even worse plans for the Turtles, and this week in Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything #4, our two troublemakers separate with their non-mutant counterparts to different parts in time.  While our Bebops head to an Utrom-run future, our Rocksteadys head to France during WWI.  I bet Savanti Ramero never thought two mutants could destroy the concept of time so much!  Even with Renet and the Turtles watching as scenarios progress at the 79th Dimension, things aren’t looking good…

This whole time (Pun intended.), I’ve been saying all along that writers Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver have a confusing, yet exciting, storyline on their hands.  And with multiple new artists each week (This week includes work from Nick Pitarra, Ben Tiesma, Damian Couceiro, Pablo Tunica, Tadd Galusha, Aaron Conley, and Ryan Browne.), I don’t think I’ve ever read such an elaborate miniseries.  Bravo to all involved!

If I’m not mistaken, time should hopefully tie itself back together next week in the final issue of Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything.  But, alas, only time will tell…

Until then,
