    Ultimately then, while its perhaps not necessarily essential reading in order to keep up to date with the ongoing story, this is still an absolute masterclass in character development, and features some truly jaw-dropping artwork. Its been far too long since Eastman, Waltz and Curnow shone a light on this particular relationship, and Im certain that fans of either character or of great storytelling in general, to be honest will absolutely love this issue.

    I've made it sound like the writing is of less importance this month. It really isn't.It's always really cool to see these characters punching flipping their way out of trouble. But it can be even cooler to see them display real emotion. Moments when art and dialogue comes together to make truly understand how they feel is special and #66 manages it in spades.

    TMNT Ongoing #66 is another great entry into this ongoing series. We get a great look into Alopex's character and what she has gone through being mind controlled by Kitsune. The art team of Campbell and Pattison is always a delight to have on this series and really makes these more "intimate" stories hit home. Alopex comes into focus and must literally learn to face her demons and figure out that just because she is a "loner" that certainly does not mean she is alone. The past few issues of this series have been great and I am definitely excited to see all of these characters continue to grow. Read Full Review

    Combine that with Campbell's masterful artwork (along with Alopex's return), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #66 is a great read"although you may want to brush up on some Alopex back issues first before you dive in. Read Full Review

    this issue not only had gorgeous art, but this series also has some of the best natural speaking dialog i have read in a comic.

    Alopex the Mutant Snow Fox has been under psychological attack by the witch Kitsune, and has run off on her own.
    Raphael and Angel have tracked her to Alaska, and have set out on a mission to bring her back home.

    Alopex still has Kitsune’s voice in her head trying to manipulate her to her own means. it’s during this conflict when Raph and Angel have become bested by the elements and are getting lost in an blizard.
    Raphael decides to try an Astral Projection technique that he had learned from his brother Leonardo, to help find Alopex.

    Kitsune’s mental attack becomes more vicious and severe, as she uses Alopex’s greatest fears against her. it is in a moment when Alopex is being overcome, when Raph’s spirit reaches her and gives her the moral support she needs to fight off Kitsune’s mental attack.

    this was a very significant issue for Raphael as a character. it addressed not only his feelings for Alopex but also addressed his concerns about the two of them both being different species delivered brilliantly through casual conversation. this also has shown he has also reached a level of spirituality to achieve Astral projection.
    it was also great to hear Raphael questioning Angel about Woody the Pizza guy who has taken a liking to Angel in the previous issue.

    all fan-service aside i was thrilled to see Alopex finally get some spotlight again. since the end of the ‘City Fall’ and ‘Northampton’ arcs she has really shined as a character that is easy to feel compassionate about. she has gone through so much in this series and really has earned her place among the Tmnt family.

    I'm psyched to bring Alopex back into the picture, she has become one of my favourite characters.Raph made a joke about being cold blooded, which got me thinking: are the turtles actually cold blooded? Technically, wearing winter gear wouldn't do anything for an ectothermic creature, your body needs to actually generate heat to insulate. Maybe the Turtles mutated to become endothermic. The inspirational speech was refreshingly blunt and in-character for Raphael, "You kick serious ass," that's all he needs to say, he and Alopex understand each other, they don't communicate well but they stand by their principles.

    Good art. Good action. Too much mushy.
