Here's hoping that Splinter gets some holiday cheer and can stop being a ninja warlord with an outdated, feudal mindset

Man, I really like these Christmas issues. I feel bad for Splinter already, though. One of the writers shared some of the panels from this issue weeks ago and it had a lot of flashbacks, I assume that's what'll make up most of this issue.

We got some more stuff implying that Casey - Jennika might become a thing, that's interesting. I'm slowly starting to like Jennika more and more, she really started developing a personality when she became Chunin.

I wonder if Splinter's gonna behead anyone in the Christmas issue. That'd be such a Splinter thing to do. Dude spends the entire issue reminiscing past events, missing his family. Suddenly, he snaps out of it and goes "Oh! I almost forgot, I had an execution scheduled in about an hour."

It's a Christmas issue, God damn it, how could you be mad with a Christmas issue? Screw the continuity, I just want to see Splinter dressed as Santa (preferably while beheading someone).

This may be Splinter's last time of peace if Karai tries to wrestle control of the Foot out of his hands.

Did you just say "screw the continuity!?"

You filthy casual. Geddouttahere.

Seriously, though, Issues #1-65 all happen in one year (also including Turtles in Time, Secret History of the Foot Clan, Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy Everything, and Universe #1-8 or so)... and then #66-89 are a whole damn year (also including Universe #9-15)?

That's an incredibly slow year compared to their previous. While I like the idea of the Turtles' new status quo post-#50 (Leo, Don, Raph with the Foot, Mike on his own) having been in place for a month or two, I still don't see those 25 or so issues stretching out a whole year.

It does kind of give the some perspective for how long the year had gone and what has transpired, but...did that really happen all in one year It felt like our poor boys were dealing with all of this madness in a period of a single month .


But y'know...it just comes to show.

One Christmas your friend is showing up with a basket of candy. By the next, he's already died in a nuclear act of self-sacrifice, also with candy.

Candy. For the best of times, for the worst of times.

For some reason, I feel the same could be said of Splinter this time next year.

Bet you it's gonna hit a lot harder than Slash's death. It kinda has to. It definitely won't be an easy read.

At the very least, I hope they at least make some kind of jabbing reference to it, like the "cowabunga" sweater at the very beginning...even if it's just down to someone yelling "We gotta get a gift for Splinter!".


Sweet ghost of Shen, there's even have a pack of children who can join in on the song. At least they have a reason to be around Splinter.

B-but... Christmas...

No, but really, I honestly doubt #1 - #65 all happened within a year. Just because there's no Christmas issue doesn't mean there's no Christmas if you get me.

Plus, I'm pretty sure #5 was a Christmas issue too, actually. And I'm convinced there's a few more that we're all forgetting.

Bobby said continuity was not a factor, they enjoyed working on #65 and wanted to do another Christmas issue. That is the real world explaination.

My God, I don't remember being this hyped for an issue in a long, long time.

This is such a funny and wholesome concept and I'm loving it. From what I understood, this will be a larger issue, won't it? In all honesty, I expected this would just be flashbacks but this seems like so much more fun. "Toad Baron teaches Splinter the true meaning of Christmas" is literally the one sentence I never believed I'd utter and it's also the single best sentence I've ever uttered. I can't WAIT to see how it plays out. Still betting on Splinter beheading someone.

And, honestly, Dialynas' art has suddenly become my new favorite thing. I swear, everything he draws is suddenly elevated to a whole other level. I mean, DID YOU SEE THAT #90 COVER? Sweet baby Jesus.

Oh, and have I mentioned how good Dialynas' art is? Well I'll mention it again. I swear, if I could, I'd hug the man.

Of fvcking course Toad Baraon is the Ghost of Christmas Present

I'm gonna say...Rat King and Gothano will be stopping by as well. I'm pretty relieved that the turtles aren't actually involved with Splinter and they're all coming down from the events on Burnow in their own particular ways. Going to guess that Splinter is going to rope them together at the end.
