I did it, you guys! I didn’t skip a month!
Naturally, I’m talking about being all caught up with our ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic book series, written by the legends themselves Kevin Eastman, Bobby Curnow, and Tom Waltz. If you haven’t been reading this series, now is an excellent time to start, because I feel like last month started us on a whole new adventure.
In TMNT #61, Master Splinter held a family meeting to discuss the important matters of finding their friend, Alopex, and the scroll April O’Neal has desperately been searching for the answers to, all of which may very well help in winning the fight against Kitsune. Of course, Mikey isn’t always up for fighting, and when Donnie and Angel try to take on the Street Phantom on their own, their plan backfires on good friend Professor Harold.
This month in TMNT #62, we find out that Master Splinter planned for Professor Harold to be kidnapped all along. In the meantime, Raph and Mikey have a much-needed heart-to-heart, and the Foot Clan may finally get the chance to fight again! This time, their targets are the disappearing Street Phantoms…
I can always go on and on about writers Eastman, Curnow, and Waltz. They are, after all, the creators behind one of the most beloved childhood franchises of all time. But this month, major props go to artist Dave Wachter whose artwork truly made me feel for our heroes more than I ever have before.
My only hope is that we don’t have to wait too long before we finally get to see Master Splinter master the Foot Clan!
Until next month,
