I like engaging in conversation about it since I am a TMNT fan, even if there's things I don't like. Who knows, maybe I'll read it again someday if the content shifts in a direction I enjoy.

Well, considering the fact that her best friend is a friggin' shark... Probably not long.

Issue 117 is supposed to be the end of this "arc" although we still have Mayor Sally and Mona Lisa's storyline to go through...which will probably happen next.

The preview for #118 actually says: A new direction for Mutant Town. I doubt we are getting back to Ninja Turtles any time soon.

They should just retitle the whole book "Adventures In Mutant Town - Guest-Starring The TMNT" at this point.

...Except then without the "TMNT" header there'd probably only be like eight people still buying it, instead of, like, twelve or whatever it is now.

Man you've really shifted Mona from being a somewhat endearing new character to... frankly an insufferable bitch. I hope she gets some kind of character arc to restore some sense of likeability to her, unless the goal is to lead her down the same path as good ol' Mondo "Antifa" Gecko. As for this chapter... like... I dunno? I mean there's nothing inherently wrong with it other than the current plot not being interesting. I guess there's not really much point throwing more shade in that regard since other people are getting that point across already.

I like the art though! The colored past segments representing the songs is a nice artistic touch. I like that you're continuing to have fun dressing up Alopex in a new random shirt every time she shows up on panel. I still do like the romance dynamic between her and Raph and its nice to see it shown subtlety without needing to have them be overly mushy on every page. Just wish they had more ninja stuff to do alongside those moments I guess.

To be fair, She's not aware that the Turtles met Future Lita. If Mikey told her about Future Lita, Her reaction would just be like when Donnie told her his origin in one sitting.

Tbh I'd have no problem with this story if it was part of a mini-series. I wonder when Tom Waltz will ever come back to write the main series. Surely The Last Ronin and the Annual can't be eating up all his TMNT-writing time.

To reiterate what's already been confirmed the next arc (118 - 123) will prominently feature Oroku Saki, so we'll finally get to see his new status quo since #100.

Miniseries? It has been going on since #101. I was tired of it after #103 and thought it would be back to serving the plot after #105 with the Turtles reunited,but nope.

****, this was awful. And still one more issue to go... It breaks my heart to think of how much promise this comic started out with ten years ago, how much potential the post-#100 era had, and it's all been pissed away. Sigh... I'm not sure if even the Annual, The Armaggedon Game and/or a full-time return by Tom Waltz can right the ship now and save this from being cancelled sooner rather than later.

Yeah, good luck with that whole reasoning-with-an-activist thing.

She would've had a better understand if they had told her what's going on however.

I have no doubt that it will get better, but yeah, I really hope that this doesn't result in an unceremonius cancellation. That would leave so much hanging, and we'd likely get another 6 issues or so to provide some semblance of closure, even though we really need at least another 50 to settle everything. Just once I'd like to see a TMNT comic get to the end without being cancelled.

Looks like you all are taking this whole thing too seriously. The comic isn't gonna get canceled.

As far as my concern, The comic has been great, I love the direction it went. No more sewers, The only way to go is up to the surface.

So there are certain aspects about this that I like, the subtle story telling with Jay no longer wearing his hood over his head, and the way the fonts and art lines let you “see” the music. I can see why Campbell might have wanted a musical story, simply as a chance to stretch out artistically. I’m mostly beyond arguing about the use of the setting and figure as long as I feel the desire to keep up with issues as they come out so I’ll engage with the series on its own terms. And in that regards, okay, cool art, okay set up to bring characters who’ve popped up over the course of the post 100 run for the big show down. I’ll probably buy the next issue, as I am interested in seeing if they go to town with the art for the battle of the bands. And then I am interested, though a bit anxious, to see good guy Saki in 118.

With regards to Mona, she is coming across as overzealous to the point of being a jerk here, and it seems intentional. I do hope it leads to something for her.
