Oh yay. More of the O'Neil parents.

At least we'll get more Baxter Stockman!

April's parents going through a mid-life crisis in their 50/60's, exactly what I want to see when I read comics about Ninja Turtles.

The action in the Triceraton/EPF war looks really good from those few pages. This is been my favorite arc in the main series for quite a while, as long as not too much time is spend with the ol' fuddy duddies, I expect this to be good.

Also really excited to see how Splinter reacts if/when the Turtles break his rule of staying behind in Foot HQ's and betray him and come into the fight. We may finally see the Splinter/TMNT feud in full swing, whereas before it was just "Splinter is acting weirdly."

I don't mind seeing the O'Neils, and I would love to see them meet more of the mutants...

But we've barely had any Turtle action in this story arc. I guess it has a lot in common with Volume 4's first few issues... the Turtles as more bystander and less participant.

Despite the apparent - and noticeable - lack of recent presence/action for the Turtles, my money's on this issue ending with a cliffhanger setting up a physical confrontation with Splinter.

Man, Slash is going to be seriously messed up if he ever gets free of Bishop...

Poor snapping turtle.

I've got a feeling this is the storyline where they finally get killed off. Don't get me wrong, parents can be great in comics (Ma & Pa Kent, for example), but with as many characters as the IDW Turtles-verse has contending for the spotlight, it's time for the O'Neil family to get a little smaller.

To be honest I said this before, I wouldn't mind a "bloodbath" of sorts to reduce the main cast a bit. We're already seeing it with Krang's untimely death and so forth. Seeing some of the lesser characters killed off would be fine with me if they have no more story potential and make an impact on the cast.

Now of course I wouldn't say this for everyone, but even something like Slash dying and Old Hob wanting to take vengeance on Bishop because of it and causing a rampage would be great story potential.

At this point, I do see a likelihood of Slash dying growing a little bit more.

(Though, I'd rather have been dash off and form a "Misery club" with Leatherhead)

Why can't we send the O'Neil's back to Northampton? New York is going to be destroyed so it isn't really the best place for them plus it gives some reason for the Turtles to return there if they ever were going to.

I am hoping that the Turtles get their time to shine in the back end of this arc, it's been a while since we have seen the O'Neil's, Casey and Hun. Sure we have a lot of characters running around in this comic but I don't mind them as long as they are being put to use in the story.

But who knows if this is the last of April's parents then maybe she will grow from it and be more involved in the story. I think a big problem with every incarnation of the TMNT if eventually April and Casey get tossed into a corner and they just don't matter any more. I always felt they deserved more than that.

Slash is gonna survive long enough to take out Bishop someday down the road. With a whole lotta angst in between.
