Yeah, for some reason that's my bet, as well. For one thing, it's "unexpected", so there's that.

I thought it would be the best narrative to learn it on the last page of issue five. However, Kevin and Tom know what they are doing.

One review also said we don't learn in the first issue. Weird.

I expect us to know by the first issue, but I wouldn't blame them for holding off until further issues, if the story allowed it. I mean, have you seen how much discussion it has stirred up? "Who is the Last Ronin?" is essentially the tagline for this series. It would probably be beneficial to keep that mystery going, but a great first issue should keep interest high either way if the world makes any sense.

Apparently, shops are facing shortages with the book due to high demand and other difficulties, so anyone interested should be on the ball about getting an issue. Of course, you can always purchase it digitally.

Ignore me. I completely misread the review. I went back and checked after Aqua's post.

I almost picked the first issue up but at $8.99 for a single that's a bit more than I wanna pay for comics. will wait for the graphic novel to come out

It's double sized page wise and oversized, hence the double normal comic price.

Yeah, it's a better value than most books on the shelf.

I actually wouldn't mind if we never found out who the last standing turtles was.

As for the shortages - I read somewhere that even those who pre-ordered may not be guaranteed a copy and I imagine comic stores are unlikely to have any left over to put on the shelves if they do any sort of standing-order service. Bit of a bloody shame.
