So Agent Bishops story ties into a Triceraton invasion! I wonder how Vurnow Island will play into this. Tracking them to Earth and have a similar agenda to the Nick cartoon?

November will be another incredible month!

Man this could not get any better. I wonder how it will play out over 5 issues, 10 if all the universe issues tie into it closely. I am guessing we will of course see the EDF in action and maybe the foot but the big question is: If the Earth the Pantheon is fighting over was being invaded, would they step on to protect it?

This is super exciting!

Awesome. Finally, finally we're getting the Triceraton invasion storyline.

With Bishop in the mix, and maybe (hopefully) even Burnow Island!

The only downside I can find with this storyline is that IDW "burning through" so many "obligatory" storylines (Bishop, Maligna, the Usagi crossover, the Triceraton invasion, etc) so fast makes it seem like #100 really could be the end.

Yeah, but remember, IDW hasn't closed the book on any of these antagonistic characters/organizations yet.

Bishop and the EPF aren't going to be defeated by Issue #100; Stockman is probably going to be around for a long time yet; we still haven't seen the Mutanimals go to war with Null; the Triceratons will still be out there; we're only getting back to Krang after 29 issues, not even counting Ch'rell; we haven't seen Hun since #47...

I'm not worried.

That would be a very sad day.

Okay, I had a feeling it would go in that direction, but still.

This is probably where Ch'rell is going to shine after all. My assumption is that the Triceratons will find out where the Utroms are, and without Krang to protect them, depending on how the trial goes, will probably take advantage of that opportunity. And while they're at it, expand their own empire on the planet their bloodlines originally came from.

I'm glad to see the Triceratons finally get some proper showcasing.

Nah, IDW TMNT probably doesn't have a planned end at this point. There's only two reasons it would end, either sales of the ongoing dip below 5,000 a month (which is very unlikely, TMNT is IDW's most popular series), or for some reason Viacom doesn't allow IDW to renew their license, the latter which is a possibility. But I don't see it happening since Viacom seems happy with their partnership with IDW.

I think issue #100 will be the "grand finale" of most of the current plotlines, but they're probably already kicking around ideas for issue 101 and beyond.

I definitely don't see IDW calling it quits after issue 100. There are still many stories to be told, even after they wrap up the threads they are dealing with right now. Obviously haven't seen the extent of Maligna's involvement, but I figure if the Turtles are the ones behind thwarting her plans in the Dimension X arc, that we may very well see her plot her revenge on Earth after issue 100.

Obvioulsy they're not planning on stopping at 100, nor will they stop seeing the license has to be maintained. The question is, how long will the numbering last?

Hopefully for the entire run.

Renumbering is stupid and needlessly mercenary. Leave it to the big two, who went creatively bankrupt years ago.

I sure hope the numbering goes up to #150 and even further beyond. It's squandered potential if they restart after #100, can you imagine IDW TMNT making it to 172 issues? One reader would say "Wow, this comic has run for 100 issues more than Archie's TMNT Adventures!" and the other would go "Who?"

Speaking of Archie influences and this series making it past #100, who else would love to see the Mutanimals in space?!

It does seem like IDW is going through a checklist of all major TMNT stories or characters to adapt. We're finally getting our Triceraton invasion of Earth (something both the original cartoon, 4kids and Nick did, and to a lesser extent Mirage very briefly at the end of Vol. 2), as well as a lot of Archie influences with Malinga, Null, Stump Asteroid, etc.

In terms of major stories they've hit almost all the big ones, besides a proper Battle Nexus tournament and maybe more time travel or space stories.

I hope IDW does more of their own stories following 100. The Pantheon was a step in the right direction.

Agreed. Although--pipe dream here--I'd rather IDW wrapped up everything by Issue #150, closed the book, and then made way for a new "adultier" Mirage-esque take on the franchise.

But Nick will never sign off on that, so... yeah, IDW can keep going for as long as it can. It's the best I can get anymore.

In terms of stories everything has kind of already been done. With Shredder gone for now, you have your gang wars between the Foot and other mobsters or gangs in NY, you have your alien aspect with Krang/Utroms, Triceratons and other Dimension X aliens, you have all your random mutant stories with the Mutanimals and other one-off mutants, you have Bishop and the U.S. government protecting Earth from aliens or mutants, and then you have your time travel stories, etc.

Other than introducing some more old characters that haven't debuted yet like Rahzar/Tokka, Armaggon, Lord Dregg, or some Nick characters like Tiger Claw, they've covered almost everything.
