TMNT #97 Preview and Discussion

It's still too early for a more traditional preview, but I figured you folks might want to see this.

Karai's soldiers and Splinter's soldiers are too different groups. Two factions of the same clan.

I have no friggin' idea how they're even supposed to be able to tell friend from foe in that mess. Both factions of the Foot look pretty much the same, enough so to be mistaken for each other in the heat of battle... The sound of all the "Sorry!" must be enough to drown out the clashing weapons and the gunfire.

Okay, who gave Dialynas the right to be this good? This can't be legal.

I know, right? I really hope he gets #100 if Santolouco can't make it in time.

Are you serious right now? This being the internet, I really can't tell. They do look exactly the same in their ninja garb. The only difference I can spot is that Splinter's Foot seem to be the only ones wearing forehead protectors.

Karai's Foot ninjas have red belts, like her sword. Splinter's Foot ninjas have grey belts.

'Cause mutants totally have time to check fashion choices as they fight for their lives.

Oh. So they do. Well spotted. I'd only noticed the forehead protectors. But then, why is Ocho knocking away that one guy with a red belt? And Splinter's Elite also have red belts, though they're much easier to tell apart from the cannon fodder. The whole thing still seems awfully confusing, considering the characters wouldn't have the luxury of reading about it in still panels from the comfort of their homes like we do.

Well, maybe because Ocho is just a nightmarish creature driven by rage and bloodlust. She don't give a FVCK who he squashes with her giant terror claws.

As interesting as this is, it does give me "deja vu" with another huge Foot fight with Karai and Bludgeon/Koya fighting the Turtles. I feel like we've seen this too many times now, but I am sure it will be awesome anyway.

I don't know which one of them I prefer, but Santolouco is REALLY good at big, bombastic and epic moments, which I think #100 should be, so he's my first choice on the matter. Dialynas is a very close second, though.

Honestly, 100 is special. I would like to see all the artist that have contributed to the book involved in some fashion.

If Bludgeon tries to harm or kill the children/orphans he will be chopped liver if Michelangelo finds out. Or rather shark fins on a platter.

I doubt Splinter killed Ocho, but I'm pretty sure that cane went all the way through and out the other side...

Did anyone else read from that third bit of the quote directly onto Karai telling Splinter that he was finished instead of the last bit, or was it just me?
