Damn, how is Anemon not blind after that?

The small text makes it diffult to know what is going on. I did like how Leonardo felt responsibility to stop any world conquering megalomaniac and Raphael is not so sure.

The scene with Krang five years in the past is harder to figure out with blurry dialogue. It is clear Krang is vaporizing aliens, but not explained what he is up to.

So there is no BellyBomb, only a character very loosely based on him. Willing to bet he has a third eye, or like Samson, will be formidable despite his blindness.

You can see his third eye on the cover.

And Krang named his pet FLIPPY ??? His very own Sarlaacc..

Interesting that the flashback makes it clear that Krang wasn't staying cooped up on Burnow except for military procedures.

You can actually see it at full size

I'm glad the art changes per each issue, I thought they were all going to be drawn by the guy who drew the first one.

Well...I was expecting an encounter with Flippy, but oh well.
Nice that we got a Joe Eyeball-type character, though it was a huge surprise.
But an adorable one. Between B'een and Eymo, Dimension X seems to really be racking up on the cute .

And what better combo for a character named Anemon to have a seeing-eye companion that looks like a clownfish?

I was not expecting to say "aww" so much for this issue.

Was an ok issue. This new character is fun, but I'm not so sure how much we'll be seeing of him so there's not much to say.

Sooooooo... Is Anemon an intentional mashup of Bellybomb and Muckman or is it just a coinkydink? Regardless of which, I hope the similar concept keeps Muckman out of this.

i really enjoyed the art in this issue as well as they previous one.

this mini-series is shaping up to be very enjoyable!

Spoiler:


was very surprised at the twist in the actual relationship between Anemon and Eymo.

was very cute to see little Eymo come to the rescue.

it was also pretty cool Leo's plan of them switching Bandanas during the fight.



really was a LOT of fun!!!

Pretty okay issue. Not as great as I was hoping.

Needed more Hakkr and giant anglerfish.

I think this series is purposely written a bit inconsequential for the people who only follow the ongoing and don't want to buy 5 more comics a month. Issue #74 is probably going to start with a brief recap saying, "Well the Turtles successfully recruited 5 or so aliens to testify at Krang's trial" and leave it at that.

I generally just like this series so far for the art and the alien worlds and landscapes. Seeing the IDW Turtles in space finally is a nice change of pace.

It's the one where he yells "I'm a Vampire!". Vampire's Kiss.

Here's my full summary and review of Dimension X #2 at TMNT Entity.

While I was left with a lukewarm feeling after issue #1, this installment really stepped it up. I liked the heck out of Anemon and Eyemo, maybe more than I was supposed to. While they're superficially similar to other TMNT characters from the past, I felt that their origin, personalities and dynamic made them stand apart from any past doppelgangers. And the "unreliable narrator" bit, trope though it may be, offered a decent twist at the very end.
