The Rat King has gained the ability to control the Ninja Turtles! He's ordered Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo to go on a crime spree to benefit the rodents of the city while forcing Donatello to search for a way to return the Rat King's original powers. Things look grim for our heroes, but this is the second part of a two-part story so you know they're going to reverse the Rat King's control and put things right! The nostalgia-fueled Saturday morning-inspired adventures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles continue in "The Turtle King, Part Two"!

Now an all-new ongoing series because you asked for it!

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Saturday Morning Adventures #2 was a fiercely fun read and quality conclusion to the story begun in issue 1. This book could have been given the low-brow treatment, but instead was adroit and poignant. Im not saying that this is a heavily influential or socially important comic, or that the Rat Kings plan was much better than some other baneful schemes, but they still manage to slip in many good important messages and themes (besides just good guys are good, and bad guys are not so good). More to the point, the creative team behind TMNT:SMA #2 gave us a great episode of one of our favorite shows complete with everything youd expect, properly paying respect to the best of its source materials. The danger was weighty, the action riveting, and the self aware 4th wall breaking humor felt completely appropriate in a TMNT cartoon or comic, and had me literally laughing out loud.

    A pretty good conclusion to our kick-off arc. It looks like a side plot for the time being will be Shredder's own plan as the Turtles continue their adventures. I don't follow the regular series, so with this one it's good to have a Turtles book I can read again. It provides a great sense of nostalgia and kind of reminds me of the Archie series I used to read but with more of a feeling of the original cartoon too.
