That is actually a good point. And I did log it as "save for important stuff later" in my mind. And now Karai's off doing a dragon thing.

Karai's mission is actually a very good point to.

as she was talking to that dragon in the spectral realm, i did notice that panel of the scars on her hand.

didn't she have to cut her own hand in 'secret history of the foot clan' drawing blood to resurrect Oroku Saki?

when i saw that panel of Karai's palm, it's the first thing it make me think of.

I think the cut on her hand is the exact same one from Micro series 3 Villains: Karai when the Shredder cuts her hand to show that he is real inside of her dream.

ah! you're right! the double slice Karai got in her palm from Saki's ghost.

incidentally she also did cut that same palm at the very end of 'Secret History...'.
that poor mitt of hers can't catch a break!

I wonder if she is slightly slightly capable of any kind of accelerated healing? Not wolverine levels obviously but just a hereditary side effect of being the descendant of A guy who mainlined Ooze over the course of 2 lifetimes...

I feel like I just opened a whole can of worms with this one.

that is an interesting thought.
i could be wrong but i was under the impression that the Oroku bloodline had carried on,
even before Saki had been encased in a casket of Ooze?

unless i'm misreading this Kitsune says-


"...our sons will seal your body away, keeping you safe while you are remade."


so is Karai also a descendant of Kitsune?

...Yes. Yes, that she is. Which might be part of the reason why she was able to communicate with the Dragon...her OTHER grandfather. Just one more generation forward.

So basically her great-great-great grandfather would be resurrected as a vessel for her great-great-great-great grandfather.

That's not at all weird on Kitsune's part. Not even slightly.

I'd put Toad Baron as most likely of all the others. Maybe not in the same sense as Kitsune, but I'm pretty sure he's doing quite a lot more with his guests and/or servants than we realize.



I'm sorry for giving you this week's nightmares. Thank goodness he's an amphibian, otherwise things would be so much worse.

I think Aka might too.

So because of my idiotic comic shop and their inability to order my comics, I've been behind with this series. I finally had time to catch up a bit today and I'm gonna share my thoughts.

Ongoing #73 and Dimension X #1-2:
These two connected arcs are great so far. I'm really enjoying Cory's return to TMNT and the various artists that are drawing for Dimension X make for a lot of great talent and variety in these books. The story is very good too. I've always had a soft spot for turtles in space stories (going back the the Triceraton/Federation story in Mirage) so these issues have been a real treat for me. Seeing these different worlds and creatures has been a blast. Can't wait to see where the story's headed.

Karai's Path:
A good story arc. We really did need a story focusing on Karai and her posse, so this one had been long overdue. I'm interested to know if Karai will return to New York at the end and if she'll try to return things to the previous status quo. The back-up is interesting as well, wonder what it'll lead up to. Sophie's artwork is gorgeous as usual, and really adds to the story.

Although there might not be time, I do hope all the Pantheon members get their own issues of spotlight like Toad Baron did. I suspect Jagwar will and is the most likely, but I'm not sure about the others.

Do you think TMNTU will see a Holiday type issue around #16 or #17? I think if IDW does do one it might fit better in Universe over the Ongoing.

I doubt they would, since they seem to be focusing more on the ongoing narrative right now.
But it would be nice to get another one. The guys could certainly use a break they've been through so much recently with little to no time to catch a breather.
And Universe would be the perfect place for that kind of story.

Y'know, it feels like just recently that we got the holiday issue. Man, does time sure fly!

No. We just got a Christmas issue last year and only a few months have passed in-universe since then. It's probably like March/April right now.

Plus we know #16 and #17 are a two-parter titled "Freedom", about the Tricerton rebellion.

Oh. That's news to me. Do we know anything about what's after #17 or #80?

So is Hakk-R like a Saturday Morning cartoon villain? He started off really threatening and interesting in the Free Comic Book day issue, but has since sort of come across as the bumbling henchmen villain employed by the main villain (Krang) who fails at stopping the Turtles and comes up short at every turn.

Given his character looks like he was designed for an action figure, maybe this was intentional.

Now that you put it that way, he has kind of taken up the helm of the 80's Shredder. I kind of thought that would have gone to Ch'rell, but I can see how Hakk-R works. He's got the cape and everything.

Unless Hakk-R is just the backup if Ch'rell isn't available.

I guess Hakk-R will probably die in issue #75.
