They're only cabable of living their truth. Which we all know is code for "not in the realm of reality."

Suffice to say, I did not like it.

What did you like about it?
Stuff. I liked "stuff" about it. Although I can see where you're coming from. Much of that is actually true.

Mostly a lot of the character stuff, and the Superman stuff. Particularly the stuff at the end.

I haven't read it enough times to have a really strong opinion about it yet.

Couple days late, but I was finally able to read this issue. There was action, Donatello is catching up with his brothers in his own way. Ralph and Casey were primo.

I kind of wish they would drop Deus Ex Saki, or at least make him more...mortal. He just seems to be too much to be a protag in this series. Not fond of the art really. Not sure how I feel about the end yet, it just depends on long term ramifications.

The art on this issue was really, really bad, I don't know why. I hope this artist was either rushed doing this one or just doesn't stick around. I wonder if Dr. Barlow is dead? Looks like Seri's ship literally crashed right on top of this place and blew it up?

Yeah, it was not the best. I did appreciate the panel before the mutation portion where the art was extremely Jhonen Vasquez. I liked this rendition of Casey overall, but all the mutants were a bit wonky. When I started looking for the artist (Tony Gregori) to see what he has done before and I found he worked on "The Worst Dudes" which I have a few issues of and (from what I remember) I enjoyed his art. I remember him doing pretty well with the 'anthro' characters. So yeah...possibly rushed?

As for Barlow? He was KO'd on the floor, so he is probably alive from comic logic. I hope someone saved him, I feel he could be a decent long term antagonist. I was getting some Bebop and Rockseady vibes from the ending...but we shall see.

I can confirm that #128 and #129 were created with a bit of a crunch towards the end. Whether or not something happened with Pablo Tunica I don't know and I don't care to speculate as it's no one's business but his but he is listed for #130 - 132 so presumably he's coming back.
I can't speak to Tony Gregori's previous work but if I had to guess, I'd say his work on #129 is possibly a combo of being rushed and trying to keep it visually consistent with Tunica's art style.
Either way I agree it does look a bit sloppy.

I guess this whole Dr. Barlow arc is pretty much over. The Punk Frogs will still be around though. Groundchuck/Dirtbag are basically Frakenstein mutants in this version and seem to be mindless.

I liked this arc better than the last several, although ultimately I wonder where they went with it besides introducing Venus. I liked all the Ch'rell/Utrom/Triceraton stuff but there wasn't much in this issue, they really need to get back to that.

When you have bowels of hell as the expectation level for a story, anything is an improvement. So its better than it has been and still has room to get better. And yeah, the art is terrible/rushed looking. Can we maybe get Paul Pelletier drawing the Turtles? Dude's art is always kicka$$. And he's a decent dude, for a liberal. Lol

You know if that was Donnies shell that Venus's cloned parts/genetic material came from, then from a certain point of view then Venus is kinda his daughter.
