Sorry, it's been so long since the OG Turtles were written with their unique personalities in this comic that I overcompensated.

I haven't seen the turtles in their own comic for so long, I'm starting to forget that they were green.

That's because they're wearing clothes all the time now, for some reason.

WE WANT NAKED TURTLES! WHEN DO WE WANT 'EM? NOW!

Isn't politics manipulative by it's very nature, regardless of where it falls on the rightwing/leftwing scale? A politician doesn't have to be qualified, prove their ideas can work, follow through on their promises or even believe their own statements. They just have to convince enough people to vote for them to get into power. I don't think I have ever believed that successful politicians have especially strong convictions, at least not as strong as they want people to think.

Casey hadn't been in contact with them for awhile since humans are generally not allowed in mutant town.

So the comic is still trash then? Good thing i come here before reading it instead of after reading it to see what people think.
So far i haven't read for quite a while now and i will continue to do so until Sophie (finally) freaking stops writing her fanfic about everyone but the Ninja Turtles.
What a mistake Tom and the others made to put her on this book... i bet they regret it too.

I had to check the letters column for the last issue to see what you were talking about, I usually don't read them.

One letter is expressing confusion over the plot, one is straight up criticism of the writing, one is expressing surprise that TMNT material is still being produced and one seems to be outright sarcasm (maybe it's genuine but there seems to be a very flat tone to it).

You need to read the ones from #118 too, there's a letter that reads exactly like one of the common criticisms of Campbell's run found here in the forum and it gets a rather ham-fisted reply that makes the whole thing seem staged as a form of damage control on IDW's part. And it gets a sort of follow-up in #119.

Just read that letter, that is hilarious if its real and yet i wonder if its indeed staged since the person writing the angry letter said basically everything thats said on this forum.
Also why do they even publish angry ones if its all they get now? lol, i'm sure most of the positive ones are staged by now.
Also Bobby saying "Its okay to stop reading!" uh no it isn't? Sales = continuation = paycheck, so its obviously NOT okay... so tired of this "im actually angry but its okay if you stop [insert hobby]!" its a lie for damage control.

Its so obvious they are rolling in their own regret at the moment but they are just being nice and beating around the bush with this.
I bet, in 10 years, if Bobby or Tom gets an interview about this current run they start with a long "Uuhhmm" and look the other way when talking about it.

I'll be honest, and i hate to say this as a huge TMNT fan since the early 90's: I hope this comic gets cancelled to show how they fked up and then just reboot the whole thing after a couple of years (and make Sophies run non-canon while you're at it, story ended with Splinters death anyway).

Ideological zealots shooting themselves in the foot to prove a point no rational person cares about is nothing new. Look at Islamic terrorists, suicide bombers, or all the privileged idiots who defend socialism while blissfully unaware that they'd starve to death in a matter of weeks, if not days, under their new "utopia".

Nah, The comic is here to stay and the current run is such a breath of fresh air, You can always read the other TMNT comics if the current comic isn't appealing to you.

There is no such thing as low sales, Ask any of the people working on the comics, and they will give you the sales number, and say they are doing fine.
