So, what was the point of this scene at the end of #75 if Ma'riell was just going to find out about Krang's death off-page and, maybe more importantly, not seem to be upset with Kleve and Montuoro for keeping that information from her?



It felt to me like her gaining knowledge of the situation was going to be a big deal when it happened. But from the way she speaks of it, it's like she was indeed told right away and that conversation just never happened.

Just narrative decisions. That stuff wasn't important to be seen in the story... what was important was letting the readers know that all of the Utroms aren't on the same page.

So is Tezuka Mikey's human name or something? Also, is it in honor of Osamu Tezuka?

Follow up question. Regardless of which Congo, he would be a native French speaker, right?

I think he was just goofing, homaging Osamu. But you'd have to ask Tom.

How many Macro issues are planned? Just one for each of the Turtles, or more for other characters?

The Macros are 40 pages of story content. Just one for each Turtle.

The first panel of page 15 in Universe #23 shows the EPF headquarters with a "NULL" sign on the front gate.

Did the artist make a mistake, or is this a subtle clue?

EDIT: And still in regards to the macro-issues, were these stories originally going to be spread out across two issues of Universe each if that hadn't been cancelled, or were they always meant to be published in such a format?

But I guess if they're successful, you could potentially make more?

What is the situation with Lindsey? Is she allowed to come and go as she pleases, does she still live in her apartment (the one Pigeon Pete and Old Hob originally kidnapped her from like 40+ issues ago?), or is Old Hob still holding her hostage? It's kind of confusing because Lindsey is shown a good friend to the Mutanimals but it seems like she's always with them.

Is she free or is Old Hob essentially still holding her hostage, albeit in a loose, "you can do what you want as long as you help us" kind of mentality.

We will see in regards to Null!

The Macro issues were not intended for Universe.

I think Lindsey knows that she'd be in trouble if she tried to leave town without saying anything. I'd classify it as a working relationship between her and Hob.
