Regarding the things with Mike, I don't really think he's naive anymore. Wanting to stop his father from converting children into soldiers isn't naive. Because of the situation with Slash - and perhaps himself to some degree - he's just sick of seeing people being turned into tools for violent means, especially when they're completely innocent. Like children.


I'd think his experience with Hob working with Hun and Slash leaving because of it really kicked his teeth in and forced him to muscle up. But also to straighten out his own morals into something more tangible.

That's not the part of him that I consider naive, though. It's the way he did it. He escaped with those kids, not even having thought through where they were gonna go, he wanted to raise the kids despite pretty much being a kid himself which is a pretty childish thing to do, etc. And really, the fact that it all turned out well comes down to him getting lucky and Splinter finding them.

Ah yeah, that is a good point. Still, I do think his heart was very much in the right place. His execution, however...


I still wouldn't call that total naivete; he's getting better.

Mikey is pretty much the living manifestation of "Good idea, bad execution" OR "Bad idea, good execution". There's nothing in-between with the guy.

He looks like he's trying to match more of the IDW "brand" of style than using his own (as he has with the special covers and that one issue we never speak of), and it looks pretty amazing.



Also, nice to see a return to Long&Tall Alopex.
Pssst. Kevin didn’t draw this issue. But I’m glad you love it!

When everyone loves your art but then they start praising Eastman for it.

Uhm, OK. Seems a little random.

Is he also a robot?

Probably just an Easter egg thrown in by the artist, but cool nonetheless.

I know it's been said that this issue takes place after "Battle Lines", but I'll be curious to see what Bishop is using as an android body (if one at all) the next time we see him in the ongoing series. Cuz if he's walking around in another body that looks exactly like the one he had before then we know that has those things in storage ready to go . But if he's walking around in something completely different, or even no android body at all, then we know that the Raph Macro has to occur after "Battle Lines".

I’m way late to the party reading this... but speaking of Easter Eggs did anyone else notice that the punks roughing up Buck were basically the main characters from “Drawing Blood”, the other project Eastman and Bishop just published?
