Al coming through with the goods, as usual!

Just these few pages give off such a tremendously grandiose feel... What an arc! I can't wait to see more of Maligna and her army.

I just like that Zog is being brought up.

And I still question why they're not dealing with Maligna first before Krang. The priorities are not in order.

Aw yeah. Triceratons, Maligna's Swarm, Ace Duck, and (it feels so weird to be happy about this) Neutrinos!

IDW has definitely earned its place as "Not Mirage, but Definitely Second Place TMNT" for my money.

Now that Zog has been brought up, and his condition in the Battle Nexus, I can only wonder if this is when they explore what happened to him.

Zog was the ringleader of the rebellion, who believed Krang could be better than Quanin, dragged down to a speck of what he once was, as nothing more than an non-intellectual brute engaging in violence for violence's sake and not for what he believed to be necessity.

I was really hoping #74 would have come the week after Dimension X #5 to keep the momentum going. I still haven't read #5 because I wanted to see how it flowed immediately into this issue.

I wonder is Raph afraid of bugs like in Nick/4kids? His expression after hearing about the Malinga swarm has me wondering.

I hope not in the Nick cartoon he seems like a whiney brat when he sees a bug as for the 4kids he seemed to have more of a hatred for bugs not an actual fear like in the Nick cartoon.

Probably not to the extent that he was in the Nick show. I really hope not. He looks more annoyed than anything.

Man, even though we had Dimension X all last month, it feels like FOREVER since we've had a new issue. Hopefully this cheers me up after seeing the Nick show come to an end yesterday.

That is until this series comes to an end and then we'll be upset all over again. Hopefully, this will keep going for many years to come.

Ha, too true.

Personally, I hope it ends with #100. I like my stories to have an end. I'd hate to see it get cancelled abruptly, or have the creative team burn out/get removed from the book.

In many ways, it feels like they're just getting started, but by the time #100 sees print there will have been over 200 comics published in this continuity. I'd say that's a very fair run.

I doubt it will. This is one of IDW's top selling books, and this continuity will keep going as long as sales remain strong.

Besides, IDW is my favorite version of the TMNT

IDW is the best version of TMNT

If they make a TMNT reboot movie retelling the shredder battle/origin, I won't buy a ticket.

Hey, I believe you man.

But I'd rather see the swan song be a truly epic #100, rather than see Viacom pull the plug randomly and have the final issue be Mikey taking Pepperoni trick or treating, or some sh*t.

Agreed...but at the same time can we get that issue in the works?

WELL. Now we've got a reason for the Triceratons coming to Earth and a slight bit of a chance to throw a little dirt at the Neutrinos for bad decision making. Nice that Trib has at least a little wariness on them, but still.

And yeah, maybe attempting a trial in the middle of a growing invasion wasn't the best idea.

Leatherhead as a surprise witness was great, but I'm not sure his testimony alone would be enough for a life sentence in prison. Just startling for Krang.

Stump's testimony was funny though, basically just saying that he didn't get paid as much as he personally hoped.

Some part of me still thinks Krang might die. Maybe not by execution, but in the fight against the Malignoid swarm. Or by a Triceraton. It's just slightly more likely than escaping to Burnow in the midst of the fighting, believing that there would be no way for Neutrino to survive and gets out while he has a chance.

Anyone else disappointed that Stump didn't get any Trumpisms in during his testimony?
