Whatwhatwhatwhatwhat?! A preview already!?

“A deadly and weird new villain”
HMM.

Okay, let's start breaking out potentials in those two catergories?
Antax - Executer, not exactly a bounty hunter. Definitely weird; is a great big bug. Deadly? Back to executioner
Zixx - Bounty hunter, check. Deadly. See previous. Weird? Probably. 4Kids guy got his car impounded for mistaking an ambassador's wife for sushi. Not sure how one connects to the other.

Looks like Michelangelo is starting to use a grappling hook in his weaponry. So the question becomes...what exactly are they doing down there?

Well I hope it is a new villain, as the solicitation says, not another rehashed one. Although either way, I'm pumped for this. IDW has a pretty good track record for updating and remixing characters from previous iterations, but I'm not familiar with most of them so I appreciate when they come up with their own characters.

So it looks like the Turtles are patrolling the Technodrome for some reason? I'm guessing they head back to Burnow Island to meet with the Fugitoid or the Utrom refugees for something, and somehow plotwise the Turtles have to go or are transported to Dimension X where the Trial of Krang will be held. Should be a dope story

If they were on Burnow, they'd be wearing their oxygen masks; it would be totally terraformed by this point.

It appears to be a training session that Donatello is overseeing. He's the only one of the four not in these few pages, so it must be him communicating through the speaker.

Well this arc takes place after the 4-issue Bishop/Mutanimals arc coming up, so I wonder if Bishop does go after Burnow Island at some point. The Utroms would need to get off-world.

I'm amazed at the sheer mass of comics we're getting from IDW. The regular ongoing, Universe, and now this Free comic book day issue, plus 5 issues of Dimension X in one month.

That's a lot.

I'm not surprised. While I'm not much one for sales numbers, I can imagine it's probably IDW's top seller or very near the top. And for good reason, too: it's the single best comic out there right now, and has been from the beginning for those who knew where to look.

I will admit that the very first arc seemed a bit bleak at the time, but I was catching up on at least 6-7 months of issues and decided to press on, and by the time I'd finished the Raph micro, I was most definitely hooked. Even #1-4 already showed telltale signs of the greatness we've come to know and love.

Here's hoping sales can keep pace with the comic's quality, and that 2017 is the first of many more packed years to come!

Bobby just said that they are only know picking artist so its surprising to see four completed pages. We don't see anything other than the Turtles returning back to the sewer-like trenches of the Technodrome and getting laser shot on their shells. While it is not much it is sure to be a fun story. I thought Krang was already imprisoned and stored away from a time after the other plot threads have settled. I hope the Neutrinos and Antrax will be involved in the story as well opposed to just a tease.

For whatever reason, FCBD requires that their books are done WAY In advance. Still doesn't make sense bas to why they release the preview so early, but whatever.

Same thing happened 2 years ago with Prelude to Vengeance. Only difference was that it contained a massive spoiler lol.

But they're not in the Technodrome??? Again, they'd have breathing support if they were. The best I can assume that Donatello has set of a training session for them in the regular sewers. He tells them to head back once they all land in the water.

MLP has fallen off in sales for a good while now. TMNT has consistently been IDW's top selling book for a while now and TMNT universe is even doing better than MLP as well.

It appears that Krang's role in reviving the five of them will be involved in the Trial of Krang plot. The question is' how?'. 'I allowed you to return to life and destroy Saki for me' would come from Krang's mouth its just the 'how'.

The question is fairly loaded. A yes or no gives a certain degree of spoilers about the arc. A non-committal response, however, gives nothing really.

It is fairly likely said plot point will be touched upon during this arc though.

02-23-2017, 06:48 AM
The FCBD issue Prelude to Dimension X that comes out in May will set up the five-part weekly miniseries Dimension X that will run through August, about the Turtles being pursued by an alien assassin hired by Krang, while the Trial of Krang arc in the main ongoing will start that same month.

As far as continuity goes, we will likely have to wait and see how all of these stories fit together chronologically since a whole miniseries will come out in-between two issues of the main series. This fall will definitely be a great time for TMNT fans though.

So with Malinga(spelling?) of Archie's TMNTA unveiled I have to wonder if Krang hired Antrax by another name to hunt down people who could convict him,namely the TMNT. It would fit in with the bug from Dimension X part.

At one point we saw a lot of Mirage and original then with the run up to 50 we saw quite an 2003 cartoon presence now it looks like Archie's TMNTA is taking center stage with Malinga, Jagwar gender flipped, Mammoth, and possibly Stump Asteroid.

This is an exciting time to be a TMNT fan! Thanks IDW!

I hate to be "that guy" but it's spelled Maligna.

As for the bounty hunter, it's been confirmed to be an original character so it's not likely a take on Antrax. Hakk-R could totally be one of Maligna's offspring, though. My guess is that Maligna, the return of the Neutrinos and Stump Asteroid (and the Triceratons?) will all feature in the Dimension X mini.

I was asking how to spell it because I haven't seen in written ages so its fine.

I like how the 50s car with flying ability that the Neutrinos had were converted into starships. Its what I love about IDW. Its takes the old and and adapts. Like a few of us I was expecting Antrax as he is a bounty hunter for Dimension X and if Maligna is involved being a bug from Dimension X it fit perfectly. I was thinking Hakk-R(Hacker as in hacks with an ax) might be a reworked Antrax.

Its hard to think Maligna and Krang are not connected especially if its running alongside Trial of Krang even if they were linked in Archie. Its the timing of it making it seem a given. I could be wrong,but it makes a lot of sense and IDW likes to interconnect things.

And then watch as Maligna's dealings bridge Krang and Null... Yikes! /speculation

No, not at all. I wish! What I meant was, we keep getting increasingly more spoiled year after year. Look at 2017 compared to 2016, when we thought Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything was hot stuff, yet it pales in comparison to this year's upcoming material. If IDW keeps this up, 2018 should be even more spectacular, after all these things are supposed to ramp up, not down... Though, admittedly, 2017 will be a very tough act to follow.

The only thing I can think of that might overshadow it next year is if we get a full on Hob/Null/Bishop war with plenty of interconnected material between the main ongoing and Universe, plus another "summer event" like B&R and Dimension X, or things finally kicking into gear with the Pantheon like you mentioned. Who knows. The wait is the worst part!

Yep, the only thing missing for me is some kind of Triceraton arc, as they've been oddly very underused in the IDW-verse so far. Aside from their lack of appearances, they've using all the other pivotal TMNT characters to their full potential.

We might see a confrontation or skirmish with the Triceratons before #100, something that breaks ground for future storylines, but if I had to guess, the plate will be too full before the 100's for any real invasion/war arc as is the norm with them. Plus, if the comic keeps going that long, we'll need new big bads, amirite? Not to mention, I feel a Triceraton invasion would work a lot better if and when Bishop eventually sees the folly of his actions and actually enlists the Turtles' help.

In reality, the Turtles are, for the most part, bystanders to the circumstances surrounding his nefarious mission -- but they don't stay out of it for long as the intended victim is one of their very close friends and most important allies.
Well, of COURSE it would be the Fugitioid.

But boy, I'm just imagining him celebrating being rebuilt and then the assassin just...bursts in and tries to take him out again. Then Ch'rell catches on to what's going on and tries to "deal" with Fugitiod himself, against his sister's protests, with the turtles finally in the mix of it.

Of course, when I think of someone named with a variation of "Hacker", I immediately think of

All his fight scenes with the Turtles looked great and his design and abilities are well done. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of him in the upcoming Dimension X arc.

Thankfully my local comic store had TMNT along with New Guardians of the Galaxy so I am happy

Man, I tried two different comic shops in Manhattan but no luck. Guess I'll try to get this on comixology or Amazon soon

Managed to find a local shop and got my copy!! :D
Hakk-R has a really cool and creepy design to him. The first panel of him creeping around like a shadow worked really well to establish this. I also like how silent he is, a real no-nonsense bounty hunter. A good addition to the guys' rouges gallery, it'll be cool seeing where the story takes him.
This story arc is shaping up to be a great one, can't wait!

the first IDW Tmnt FCBD issue was really good, but i think i enjoyed this one MUCH better!



(minor spoilers)

it was a lot more intense of a story and had a much more dire feel to it!
i deeply felt for Fugitoid's safety (not that they'd actually "OFF" him in a free comic)
but that fight scene was GREAT!
it really kept me on edge!


this was honestly one of the best stories i've ever gotten on a FCBD issue! :D

and it wasn't just some reprint like some companies like to put out on free comic day either.

Grabbed my copy at our local library's FCBD "event". It was the FIRST thing I picked up off the table. Interesting story, great art, and I like the new character. Honeycutt seemed very much afraid of him!

Here's my full summary and review of the TMNT Free Comic Book Day special at TMNT Entity. (http://tmntentity.blogspot.com/2017/05/tmnt-free-comic-book-day-2017.html)

Great to have Cory Smith back! He's going to be doing art in the Trial of Krang or Dimension X mini, right? I hope so; he was absolutely on point in this special (and so were Pattison's colors!).

Looking forward to August and seeing how the Trial story and Dimension X mini intertwine with one another.

Who was he referring to? Was it Princess Tribble? Because, Mikey...you've only seen her once :tconfuse:

He was describing Raph's relationship with Alopex.

That and "Illuminati Comfirmed" made for some annoying dialogue from Mikey.

Oh thank goodness; I was worried we had another rushed relationship on our hands (the comic seems to be doing that quite a bit recently).

Finally got to read it (was too busy this weekend to swing by the LCS).

The 2017 FCBD issue is both better and worse than the 2015 FCBD issue; the story progression is much better, with Hakk-R (badass new enemy!) and Fugitoid being brought into the narrative... but worse with the recap.

In 2015, the Turtles have suffered a major loss and are reeling from it. A bit of introspection makes sense there--thinking back over how they got to such a horrible point, what could they have done differently, etc. But 2017... man, that was clunkier than a junkyard. :trolleye:

yeah, i definitely agree with your summation.

the original content of the 2017 FCBD issue had so much going for it.

but that recap was pretty awful!

...so forced and unnatural. felt like one of those 'flashback' episodes that all TV sitcoms feel they need to do.

The recap also felt weird because the Turtles seemed to be forgetting things that just happened. Like the Turtles referring to the Mutanimals as a whole as their enemy, when they should have only meant Old Hob. Or saying, "Wait, Karai/Koya/Bludgeon are on our side now, right?"

I mean I know all that stuff was aimed at new readers and not us, but it did feel jarring to read.

The rest of the issue was fantastic though.

Yeah, listing Slash and the Mutanimals felt really weird. They were ALL just running away from Bishop... I'm pretty sure you guys are family by now and Hob is the alcoholic uncle everyone is trying to redeem. Stop acting like you're enemies!

CyberCubed
05-10-2017, 03:35 PM
Yeah, come to think of it Bishop is really their only current enemy besides the Pantheon and now the upcoming Krang stuff.

Old Hob and the Mutanimals are allies even if Hob himself does shady things. Karai/Koya/Bludgeon are off in Japan and aren't enemies anymore either. Baxter has an uneasy truce with April and the Turtles now. Hun is basically at his lowest point and just a common criminal now.

Besides that the only other stuff is whatever they do with Leatherhead, and whenever Bebop/Rocksteady return to NY. Oh, and Null too, but I keep forgetting about her since she's never appeared in the main ongoing. Even the recap completely forgot about her.

It's kind of suspicious Null has never appeared in the main ongoing. Makes me think her character won't ever be written by Tom Waltz and will just appear in Universe or specials by Paul Allor.

Paul Allor wrote both her appearances, I guess she is "his" character to write and do with as he sees fit? It would be nice to have one guy in charge of her characterization and story.

the best part is, it was added as a one-shot and not lumped-in with the on-going issues! :)

...and it's still free! :D
