Before we finish for this month"Is 'What is Ninja?' the best backup in any TMNT story? It might be you know. I feel like I picked up what was going on a lot better this week. It's really poignant too. A well crafted piece that is coming together nicely. Read Full Review
Still, that ending was pretty darn good. I really hope one of the two Turtles books picks up the plot thread"and if it's this one, I hope it's the same creative team so they can have another shot at knocking it out of the park. Read Full Review
overall 'Metalhead 2.0' has been a very satisfying story arc.
last month's entry set up a lot of story we could have and action-packed conclusion.
it's hard to say a lot about this story without giving away spoilers. and i really don't want to ruin anyone's shock and surprise of this issue.
so i'll just leave it at, if you enjoyed last month's Tmnt:Universe then you'll LOVE the stories conclusion!!!
very heavy stuff! . . . and not just the Robot!
a minor detail i'd like to point out is how real the Turtle brothers felt in their interactions with one another.
they really felt like a family.
it's good to see their relations with one another, and the strong bond of family handled well.
seeing them hanging out playing video games with one another, and bickering over who won (or how they won) was really a delight to read.
i really do enjoy this art from the main story.
it had a good sense of light and shadow, without overdoing it or becoming over polished.
the more rough or raw style of art for me helps fuel the emotion in the story.
as far as the back-up story goes....
i'm really enjoying this look into how Jennika found her way to becoming a Ninja.
it's nice the way Jenikka's flashbacks overlay with the narration as well as the present.
