It looks like that last panel is the moment Shredder decides to carry out his contingency plan...

Pfft, when Shredder's helmet comes off that easy that's how you know he's the fake one and you should be attacking the other Shredder. And hope he doesn't use that cheap one-hit-kill lightning move.

I probably shouldn't have looked at the preview. Waiting for this story has been hard enough up to now and now I just want it worse, lol.

Man that was an action-packed issue, lotta in's and out's, lotta what-have-you's. Lot of stuff I didn't expect to see yet! But everything was well done, another phenomenal job by the IDW team. I had forgotten that next month is the conclusion to this arc, cuz I've just been thinking about the next arc building up to issue #50 and where things will go from them.

Wow that issue was amazing, so much action and it's getting intense. I want to read issue 44 now.

Spoiler:

Hob is an ASSHOLE, I can't believe he left Splinter like that.
Looks like Donnie is going to get a brutal beatdown

Here's my full summary and review of TMNT #43 at TMNT Entity.

While the first half of the arc was all setup, the back half is a real rollercoaster seeing all these plot threads collide head on. The Turtles, Shredder, Krang, the Mutanimals, Splinter, Fugitoid, Baxter... all coming together in one giant dog pile. Really exciting.

The lust for catchphrases and quips seemed to override characterization or atmosphere a bit, though. I mean, from all we've seen of this Mondo Gecko so far, he seems like a pretty nice dude who gets along with the Turtles. He seemed waaaayyyyy to chill with abandoning Splinter to die. If he hadn't spouted a callous catchphrase ("Lead the way, Jefe") the moment might not have stood out so much, is all.

Still, great stuff. Now onto the Mutanimals miniseries!

Hob isn't exactly a character one would call heroic, that much is clear. I doubt he cares about Splinter at all, he probably just wanted to get the mutagen and get out of there from the start.

I'm actually glad to see Hob being a dick again, he was actually a little too chummy lately.

I think slash will turn on hob at some point. I don't think they are on the same page.

Great story, looking forward to the next issue.

I honestly feel like it will be Hob to turn on him first

Good issue, lots of action. Krang can't be too happy with Baxter Stockman now, I'm looking forward to seeing him being mutilated in some way only possible with Utrom technology and Game of thrones level sadism. I'm also wondering what happens with Donatello now, I already read the spoiler preview of the FCBD comic, it'll be good to see how it all transpires in the interim. I would to see more realism concerning battles of swords vs modern firearms, since it's sometimes hard to suspend disbelief. I don't see why the foot soldiers aren't using silenced pistols with subsonic ammo.
