That last panel... Yikes! Of course he would be doing that. Typical.

And those damn kids were so cute!

The issue was nice, though a fairly linear and predictable middle to this arc. How many times have we seen events unfold like this, not only in other TMNT stories but in every other plot like this one? The Turtles' personalities during the search and the intrigue at City Hall kept it from feeling stale, though.

OK, so now we have confirmation that the bomb was far worse than what we've seen previously.

it was interesting.
the kids trying to get out reminded me of that scene from home alone 2 when marv tries to get out of the hole.
and Baxter your starting to give off vibes of the truman show.

In a comic book, absolutely.

Realistically, and given the current sociopolitical climate, airing such a show would ensure a pro-mutant crowd would take down the wall by the end of the week and the mutants would be welcomed into the general population (with no side effects to anyone else unlike advertised by Stockman, given the fact that the mutation zone seems to be confined to that particular area of the city and is even affecting local fauna and flora as per #107).

Or... A pro-mutant crowd would invade Mutant Town and stay there to live among the mutants, declaring it an autonomous territory. It's 2020, the year of utter insanity and societal collapse, so either way is good.

OR... The reality show would be so successful, no one would dare upset the delicate balance of that microcosm and just keep on watching, enraptured, until Null inevitable makes her move or whatever brings about the end of this particular status quo.

But if we were to go with the notion of Mutant Town receiving an influx of residents and striving to become autonomous, that raises the question: who even is in charge there? Stockman is Mayor of New York City. Would he have authority over such an enclave? Hob is mostly a middleman, everyone who doesn't work for him seems to know he's shady af but the dude keeps the supplies coming in. Supplies which, by the way, he gets from Karai. So is Karai effectively the leader/Mayor/President/whatever of Mutant Town?

Oy... So many possibilities with this whole setup, feels like we've only started to scratch the surface.

Hmm, seems that Eel may be an animal mutant rather than a mutated human. Seeing that mutated ‘garden’ would send Leatherhead up the wall. As soon as he resolves the Krang situation he’s gonna have words with Hob.

Thought this was an easy back to basic story.

Seriously, I bet you that's the first time in 80 years that THAT particular mistake saw print. Intolerable! What're they gonna do next, spell his name wrong? No standards.

Nice issue, but I do think the dialogue makes me feel like I was reading one of the Nick TMNT Adventures comics rather than a main ongoing for adults. I'm not saying I didn't like it, but this felt like a "kids" TMNT comic. I own all the Nick animated TMNT comics so I do like them, but this story felt like it could have almost fit into those.

I dunno, guess the way the Turtles were talking to each other and then all the little animal kid mutants made me think of a kids comic.

Completely agree, Cubed.

But at least it felt closer to a TMNT comic this month. That was good.

Also curious what Our Man Mayor Baxter is doing.

So I guess this issue is an improvement over the last few. Hooray. We'll see if it lasts.

Pretty much this very thought. However, the three ladies have to save the Turtles form Baxter's eel.

Put it like that, this sounds like the premise for some very NSFW fan art.

Maybe, in a manner of speaking, that's the idea since Baxter and Null might be secretly working with each other....away from April obviously. Maybe Baxter's testing these mutants to see who is worthy of being put into Null's workforce to take over the economy.
