I'm so excited, this series has been my favorite mini since Secret History of the Foot Clan so far, Mateus knows what he's doing.

Is it me, or does that thing on Cover B look a lot like Archie Null's final form?

I feel like it can be a true challenge to try write an engaging story-line that takes place over four issues of a character self-reflecting and hallucinating in hell. It sort of scares me away from checking this book out, despite just how awesome "Shredder in Hell" sounds as a title.

For that reason alone, I've yet to check out the book, but I may when it is all said and done, because if nothing else, it should be entertaining based on the artwork alone.

I feel like the series will absolutely be captivating, and it's certainly done a good job at establishing the afterlife while staying mysterious, but I feel like making Saki sympathetic without forcing him to do a complete 180 will be a challenge. So far, I'm not feeling him too much, though I assume that'll change soon.

If reading the IDW series has shown anything, it's that the characters do not stay static in their characterizations. They grow and change, just like in real life. And Shredder is no exception. It looks like the wheels are in motion for him to be an ally of the Turtles (maybe even replacing Splinter in that role should he die shortly). I'm not a huge fan of Shredder becoming a full-fledged ally (maybe he'll be more like Hob) but it definitely creates some interesting story telling in the years to come....or maybe if and when Karai takes over the Foot, he'll be her Chunin.

I find it kind of funny how I've stopped even thinking about commenting on the art or the action because Mateus is doing so damn well that I don't even feel like there's any need to point it out.

Spoiler:
F in the chat for my boy Yoshi. What's depressing is, if the story takes place post-Yoshi dying in the main ongoing (if that ends up happening and I don't get banned), then this might chronologically be the last we ever see of Splinter.


Fun issue, #1 is still my favorite though.

I liked that this issue felt a little more straightforward than the end of the previous issue.

LOVE the Dragon's design, too... very evocative of the Shredder.

I'm also still absolutely 100% convinced that Splinter dies in the ongoing, and chooses to come help Saki in this series rather than embrace the peaceful afterlife he has earned.

So...we would basically have watched him die twice by the time that rolls around?

In the words of the late, great David Carradine's masterfully acted Bill: "It all sssuddenly ssseems ssso clear."

This issue reminded me a little of Dragonball Z. Besides the little exchange of energy blasts between Saki and Tatsuo, the fact that the Dragon needs both Saki and Tatsuo to be whole again (if I'm understanding this correctly) reminds me of Cell needing Androids 17 & 18 in order to become complete.

Don't forget the whole Buu debacle, including/especially the recent developments in the Super manga.

Good issue. I have no idea what's going on, the story is lost on me, (I'm sure the final issues will make more sense when it comes to a close), but it's good.

So now we know that the toon2003 foot emblem is no a stylized foot sign, but the IDW dragon sign! Fantastic!!!

The art is great, storytelling medium, so far. I hope the last two issues will bring more order in the current chaos. But I'm enjoying the spin-off and like to watch Mattheus develop himself! Like Sophie Campbell - making steps from artist to writer. It's wonderfull to realize the development of the TMNT IDW series and of the creators behind it!!!

Keep it this way and continue with the numbering after #100!
