That #101 cover seems a bit spoilery.
Spoiler:
Where did Mona Lisa and the albino turtle baby come from?

Vicky82 09-21-2019 05:03 AM

Hmm, I wonder

Spoiler:
To save the kids, they are mutated.
Pretty awesome that Mona Lisa is appearing.

Utrommaniac 09-21-2019 05:36 AM

WELL THEN. There are MANY questions! And only three issues to answer them!

Spoiler:
It's actually kinda cool she used the design that first debuted here, though! A whole year of Sophie writing, though. That'll be cool.

MikeandRaph87 09-21-2019 06:39 AM

Mona Lisa is definitely the biggest highlight of the issue, but who or what is the threatening creature behind them?

Igglet 09-21-2019 06:44 AM

Alright, I'm hyped.

AquaParade 09-21-2019 06:49 AM

Wow! I've been following Dustin Weaver's covers on the recent X-Men relaunch, but his work looks even better here. Both covers are great.

I'm excited for this fresh start, as it gives me a point to jump back on! I've been reading the last few issues and enjoying them, but I've also been, somewhat selfishly, hoping for a new direction for this book for a while. I love how successful it has been as what it does, but I'm just hoping for something that resonates with me a bit more. That said, I am glad to see that Tom and Kevin were involved with this story, as per the writing credits, and I wonder how much involvement they had. Probably just roundtable discussions, but I'm still curious. Also curious as to what they will be up to next.

Anyways, this is an exciting time for the book. Can't wait to see what other artists the main book may have lined up.

Artists I'd still love to see get a crack at this book (or at least a cover): Jerome Opena, Frank Quitely, Gabriel Ba, Greg Capullo. None of them probably come cheap, but I'm just having fun over here. In fact, the covers are one of my favorite things about the IDW series. There has been a lot of rotation and surprising artists popping up on them over the books run.

Igglet 09-21-2019 07:12 AM

Both of the covers are honestly great, especially Dustin's. Like half of the reason why I'm this hyped for #101 is because Dustin's cover got me sold on it.

I wonder if Hob sets off a Mutagen bomb (think the Inhumans' Terrigen Bombs) in the crowd during #98 and mutates a bunch of random people at once?

That creature in the background is either IDW Rahzar or just an OC mutant porcupine.

CyberCubed 09-21-2019 08:52 AM

Issue 101 almost looks like a completely new series different from what came before. Almost a soft-reboot in a sense, where of course everything is in continuity, but now the series will go in a different direction. Sort of reminds me how TV shows have a new season where everything is different than what came before with new designs and everything, but is still part of the same show.

ChosenOne 09-21-2019 09:08 AM

Guys, guys... I just noticed this and can't believe everyone else hasn't, or at least not mentioned it: check out the street sign Pepperoni is stepping on... :o

CyberCubed 09-21-2019 09:40 AM

Makes sense if there's going to be a lot more mutants, give them a sanctuary city. The X-men franchise does similar things.

I'd almost welcome a clean slate if there wasn't still so many unresolved arcs with Ch'rell and Null still lingering for years.

If anything, this should make Null even more involved in the main plot. Mutants are pretty much her thing, for whatever reason we have yet to find out. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say she's the big bad for the next 50 issues. As for Ch'rell, who even knows how he's gonna play into it... But he just might.

CyberCubed 09-21-2019 10:36 AM

Yeah I do feel post issue 100 will be Null as the main villain, with Bishop still around on the side, and of course the Patheon still with their grand master plan. I think Karai might be imprisoned, who knows. But I don't know what they plan to do with Ch'rell, it almost feels like he really wasn't needed this series and they could have wrapped up the Utrom/Triceraton stuff without him.

I'm very intrigued about Ch'rell's role going forward. We were told he was pretty much ax-crazy, and then when he comes out of stasis we get a far more stable individual than even Krang was. Sure, he's a formidable warrior and seems like a competent leader for the Burnow Island aliens, but he's (so far) definitely not as psychotic as I expected. He even feels like he could be a long-term ally to the Turtles. We're only expecting him to be villainous because of past iterations of the character. Meanwhile, it's the other Utroms who sneak around and plot and keep secrets... Maybe they're the ones to watch.

Igglet 09-21-2019 11:25 AM

I've said this before and I know it's a controversial opinion but I do hope that the main Dragon King plot gets resolved by the end of #100. All things considered, it does seem to me like things are building up to that. I'm cool with the Pantheon still popping up and playing a part in the story as long as they move away from the Dragon King thing. When a plot thread dangles for years without offering any payoff whatsoever, I personally just lose all interest in it. I also hope that, going forward, Bishop is gonna play a similar role in the story as Krang did post-#50. I don't want him GONE just yet, but I do want the Turtles to take him down. The slate needs to be cleared for post-#100.

ChosenOne 09-21-2019 11:35 AM

I have a feeling Stockman might play a big role in taking Bishop down, somehow. What with Mutant Town on the horizon, this comic is bound to get a smidge more political, which is right up Stockman's alley. I'm sure he didn't relish being forced to play along with the EPF, and assuming he becomes Mayor, he also won't take kindly to Bishop's attempts to keep him in check. He's like the Littlefinger of IDW TMNT. New York City will be his and his alone, and the first step towards that is getting rid of the man who thinks he can hold him by the leash. At least that's how I see it.

And at least based on his/her body shape on that cover, it looks like a mutant albino leatherback sea turtle (which are remarkably similar to sunflower seeds since nature does love her repeating patterns). Nice!

Mona Lisa seems to be mutated Lindsey. I actually wondered how long would Hob tolerate a human on the Mutanimals. As Jennika changed, Lindsey saw how a mutation could be done and did the same on herself.

Albino baby is the seventh turtle in the series. Too many, if you ask me, and still no Tokka on the horizion (although a Rahzar in the background).

Sophie rulez! :tgrin:

Edit: it seems to be the mutant porcupine from 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Brothers Unite video game! How refreshing it is to get some new enemies! Source

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20151006204921

Edit2: it's even older - from the 1980-s!

I recall Sophie saying something about Mona Lisa's characterization as a college student, back when she first showed us her early concept art for the character, so it's probably not Lindsey. The glasses and overall similar look is just a coincidence. Plus, that MU on her shirt probably stands for Mutant University.

One of those Slash clones with Bishop in the upcoming issue could be Tokka in the future :D

Mutant Ninja Anole 09-21-2019 01:44 PM

Okay, wow, huge spoilers here.

“Mutant Town” indicates that indeed we have a mutant explosion post #100. I confess this sort of storyline is one I’d internally hoped for, but wasn’t sure if it would actually happen! A massive shift of the status quo and the situation in New York. Hob’s Mutant activism has always been a little odd given there was hardly any actual mutants, but now it seems we’re going to have a massive influx and even a mutant town and society.

Not that it hasn’t been foreshadowed. We saw the mutant heavy future in the Shredder dominated New York, Shredder also saw a future where he led a mutant army, and Null has been dedicated to creating more mutants for their purposes.

The possible stories to explore here have a lot of potential. A “Mutant Community” means a lot of new people with diverse backgrounds are suddenly thrust into the same situation. Will there be divisions between mutated humans and mutated animals? Those seeking to be turned back and those embracing the change? Different opinions on how to relate to the human world? How will they deal with Bishop? With Null? How many will join up with Hob? Will some hate him for ruining their lives?

I like Mona Lisa’s design, and that she’s apparently a college student and nerdy. Really interested in where this story goes from here.

CylonsKlingonsDaleksOhMy 09-21-2019 03:01 PM

Holy $hit.

Mona Lisa, mutants everywhere... Hob does something drastic, and I can't fvcking wait.

Rooish 09-21-2019 04:46 PM

Can't say I'm a huge fan of the baby albino turtle, but Mona Lisa is cool... a potential love triangle for Raph? Lol. Hope not. Let's just get Ninjara in this mess as well.

Very cool directions the series is taking. I hope poor Lindsey doesn't get mutated. And I hope Jennika changes her name to Artemisia.

Cloudrunner 09-21-2019 05:02 PM

lol no one's gonna say it? Alright, I guess I will. Clearly the albino baby turtle is Alopex and Raph's kid. It even has Alopex's cloak. This is the canon that I've decided upon, and no one can take it from me.

I wouldn't mind that. It sure would explain how Mutant Town was able to spring up seemingly overnight between issues.

I personally have chalked it up to him having way more things to worry about than to do the "extreme displeasure" Ma'riell had been worried about. Raging about what happened to Krang wasn't an option, and I think everything with the EPF just kinda cancelled that out.

He had bigger fish to fry than Krang's trial. And by "fish" we mean "tanks about to break down his people's last stronghold".
(Though, we did get a little bit of a look at the crazy when he was on the battlefield.)

Krang wouldn't have let the Mutanimals just walk away after attacking him, though. And that was after the EPF threat had been dealt with. Ch'rell was even shown mourning Slash's sacrifice with the others. Nah, he doesn't seem (so far) to be as nasty and unhinged as his former overlord.

Utrommaniac 09-21-2019 07:53 PM

I didn't really interpret it that way. More of a "well, sucks for them" to me.

I'm just going to give him a little time and hope Sophie does something with him.

The little Turtle looks like a toddler, 3-4 years old. I don't think there will be a time skip and I'm no expert on mutant mating, but I'm pretty sure Alopex would not give birth to a Turtle.

Allio 09-21-2019 09:00 PM

I’ve seen worst offsprings.

Damo 09-21-2019 11:17 PM

Timeskip of years isn't impossible, but Pepperoni there doesn't look more than a few months older.

My best guess is that Null and/or Bishop do something really stupid and a whole lot of animals and people end up getting mutated.

Utrommaniac 09-22-2019 12:22 AM

I think it's a bit too much of a jump to suggest it's a biological child, even if she's wearing Alopex's cape.

And even if it IS a few years later, Pepperoni wouldn't be much bigger; Protoceratops weren't that big.

No, I'm rolling the dice on her popping out a big dumb turtle egg. Hold onto this post once I'm vindicated in December.
