+ Pull List

"Trial of Krang," part 3 of 3. The oversized conclusion to the Turtles' greatest extra-dimensional story arc is here! Both the prosecution and the defense have tricks up their sleeves as testimony gets emotional. Meanwhile, a war rages outside the courtroom as the Malignoid swarm engulfs Planet Neutrino!
Bullet points:
* An oversized epic that starts the road to TMNT #100!
* Courtroom drama and extra-dimensional war action all in one issue!

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #75 offers another solid entry into the TMNT franchise at IDW. With double the page count, writer Tom Waltz delivers a story with two very different, but satisfying, halves. Artists Smith, Santolouco, Johnson, and Couceiro draw the issue well, but fail to elevate it. If TMNT #75 proves anything, it's that these Turtles have lots of story left and capable creators behind them. Read Full Review

    Despite a terminally slow second half, TMNT #75 does bring the action and drama such a finale deserves. There is some good dialogue, a lot of great art, and, of course, the Turtles themselves at their best. Writers Kevin Eastman, Bobby Curnow, and Tom Waltz do some great work here. I can recommend it, even if the $7.99 price tag makes it a daunting purchase. If youre really into the Turtles, then it is worth the high price though. Read Full Review

    A satisfying conclusion to the story, but suffers from wordiness. Read Full Review

    Ultimately then, while its fun to take a peek at a larger universe filled with aliens, talking trees, humanoid triceratops warriors and genocidal pink blobs, it does feel like IDWs TMNT ongoing series is a book that flows a lot more smoothly when it keeps its feet on the ground. A fun diversion then, and one that leaves a lot of interesting unanswered questions, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the Turtles getting back on terra firma in the weeks and months to come.

    TMNT #75 did get me excited for what is coming up next, but it failed to make me excited about the story I was reading in it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 25, 2017

    As exciting as it is to see the flagship TMNT comic hit a new milestone and undergo some significant status quo changes, the execution of this issue leaves a lot to be desired. TMNT #75 is a very disjointed read, both visually and in terms of subject matter. Whatever urgency is established early on is drained away in the abrupt transition from space warfare to courtroom drama. At this point, it'll be a relief to leave Dimension X behind for a while and see the Turtles return home. Read Full Review

    A beautiful looking book, but with a flimsy narrative and poor resolution. You'll want to escape from Planet X, too. Read Full Review

    the art in this issue is a disjointed mess!!!!
    the first eight pages of art are dull and flat. not very exciting to look at!!
    then we go to Mateus Santolouco's art which is very dynamic and very well drawn.
    then we jump back to art that looks like the artist was given an extremely short deadline to finish.
    the coloring doesn't do the art any favors. it's too light and pastel. very very lifeless color.

    there is so much useless dialog in this issue.
    i understand this is supposed to be a courtroom drama, but this really does NOT make for a fun comic to read!
    NO THANKS!!!

    the whole thing felt like a big dragged out diversion to catch readers off guard for the ending.

    i wouldn't have b more
