In the wake of the events of TMNT: The Armageddon Game-Opening Moves, Oroku Saki (the Shredder) has fully revealed himself to the Turtles. In order to counter the newest evil machinations of the Pantheon's trickster god, the Rat King, he seeks an alliance with the sons of his former archenemy, the late Master Splinter. But are the Turtles prepared to join forces with their merciless executioner from a past life? And is the Shredder truly ready to be redeemed? No matter the case, the Armageddon Game is fast approaching, and the only place to find the answers to these burning questions is in Northampton!

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #131 is a great prelude chapter to the upcoming The Armageddon Game event. Oroku Saki's presence throughout this issue is strongly felt as his sudden mentorship of the Splinter Clan brought with it strong character moments for the core cast. Where things go from here as we head into The Armageddon Game has a lot of potential to be a memorable TMNT event. Read Full Review

    It's unfortunate that the art of late has been an issue for me. Pablo Tunica is clearly a talented artist but he draws everyone with the proportions of little kids. The cover alone looks like a child dressed as Shredder or as everyone was de-aged in the story. The facial expressions have also been quite jarring, especially Alopex which is a shame as Sophie is writing a solid issue with some strong emotional moments that the art is really diminishing. A shame as the art is good aside from those issues but they're so significant it's really hampering my experience of these latest issues. Hopefully others aren't struggling with it as much as I love this series and want the readership to stay strong.
