‘TMNT: Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything #5’ – Comic Book Review

This is it.  The end.  The end of time . . .

Well, at least it’s the end of comic book series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything.  But, based on everything that’s happened thus far, Bebop and Rocksteady could very well destroy the whole concept of time for the Turtles, with their entire universe being flushed down the time drain along with every other mutant we have come to know and love!

Iit wasn’t so long in time ago (one month ago to be exact) when Donatello discovered the skeletons of both Bebop and Rocksteady in the Museum of Natural History. Once their good friend, Renet, showed up in the storyline, she took our heroes-in-a-half-shell on a time-traveling adventure that dated all the way back to the Cretaceous Period, followed by a trip to 2012 (before they became mutants), where Bebop and Rocksteady teamed up with themselves to not only fight the Turtles, but also create more chaos by arguing with none other than themselves!

You see, it all relates back to Savanti Romero who has history with our Turtles’ past lives, and although he recruited Bebop and Rocksteady to destroy his enemies, I don’t think he realized that they would literally—well—destroy everything!  Even with Renet and the Turtles at the 79th Dimension, a place where they can watch over all the time portals–new and old–created by Bebop and Rocksteady, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything #5 gives our heroes 10 minutes to locate the original goons and finally kick some warthog and rhino butt!

I’ve been saying since the beginning of time (or at least since the beginning of this series) that writers Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver have created a very unique storyline for even the most die-hard Turtles fan to enjoy.  Even with all the confusing time portals created (and destroyed) within this entire series, there were also so many talented artists involved.  This week included the works of Ryan Browne, Sophie Campbell, as well as from authors Bates and Weaver, with additional colors by Bill Crabtree.  Each and every artist involved each week represented their own Bebop or Rocksteady. In a way, this entire series would not have been as unique as it was without their collectiveness as a group. 

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over these five awesome issues, it’s that a Rocksteady will always have his Bebop.  And a Bebop will never be complete without his Rocksteady…

Bravo to all involved!
