This current TMNT arc (113-117) actually originally had Armaggon in it, it was more like a Terminator thing, darker with more murder, and the music part was a much smaller aspect, so it definitely wasn't born out of unused Jem ideas.
I would have liked that better and no music necessary except maybe a Vanilla Ice look-alike.

Wouldn't it be, i don't know, easier to demutate him or something? Considering we're talking about a series that has already had multiple writers and is expected to have more in the future, it might be better to consider methods of writing out characters in a way that is less permanent in theory?

Killing off characters that are mainstays in a book with multiple writers, is exactly the sort of thing that has lead to nonsense like War Machine, Black Widow, Red Skull and Doctor Octopus being replaced by clones so everyone in-universe can act as if they never died. Worse yet being when the death causes the writers to come up with contradictory resolutions, remember how the Phoenix was just a Jean Grey impostor and Madelyne Pryor was just a look-alike? Too bad they had to screw that one up...

Anyway, there are plenty of ways to write Hob out of the story, here are just a few examples:
  • Transform him back into a regular cat.
  • Banish him to Dimension X.
  • Have the EPF lock him up.

There's really no need to kill him.

Wouldn't he be completely blind then even before being eaten? I can see why that pitch was turned down, Old Hob was introduced in the very first issue and was the breakout character of the IDW universe, having him killed off in such a way would be odd.

i liked it, good work sophie, you had some good shout outs in this one.
Spoiler:
was suprised tusk and koya became band members, glad my other guesses other than karai being a member were right.

sally's really getting a mane of hair growing and i see derbys still hanging out at the club along with the goth bat chick.

Can someone remind me again about why any of this matters? What happens if they lose? Bebop and Rocksteady get to play music at a bar whenever they want, that's it. And when this whole mutant town thing is over, then it's not like anyone will visit that makeshift bar ever again. If they win on the other hand, Bebop and Rocksteady aren't allowed to come back to mutant town, which also means nothing. Nobody in mutant town has any real authority and those two guys aren't exactly known to keep promises, why would anyone expect it to matter? And again, mutant town will be resolved somehow down the line, so who cares wheter or not they can set foot in a temporary slum?

The stakes were "Karai can't die or all hell breaks loose" which has effectively already been averted. The only reason for this band to exist is so that they don't "forget to have fun" and to make sure a similar scenario to Lita's future occurs. Of course since Karai already got to live, this future has already been averted and we have no idea about where things are going meaning there are effectively no proper stakes, so why should I care?

I like how this issue brought back some of those new recurring mutants we've been seeing in the previous issues for the band, makes it feel like this arc is coming to a close. Glad to see Mona Lisa called out too.

Part of me still feels like all the future stuff Lita is saying is partly false, but who knows.

well, it is the one i grew up watching. mutant towns in a way like voyager, a group of isolated people formed from multiple crews trying to survive with limited resources and in some ways trying to get back to humanity. i'm surprised they didn't get a species 8472 crew member or 2. one things for sure, hob is not tuvok. although sally does remind me of janeway. they also got into all kinds of side stories too.

This 'journey' feels like going to the dentist, waiting in the lobby for an hour due to your appointment being delayed, then getting your teeth checked, and being told you have a cavity and need to pay $xxx to get it filled.

and yet, it needed done unless you want to lose the tooth, make your mouth worse from infection, or suffer in pain. i just noticed, leo's got his own garden/greenhouse on the roof. now that they've got the space, the boys are really branching out.

I'm trying to say that it's been boring, long, and kind of annoying.

There has been no point to this story arc. It also has been painfully boring to read. And to think this storyline with Future Lita has been teased all the way back since issue 105! I know Sophia can write good stuff. I liked the Karai mini series a lot and her original ideas for this arc sounded good. I’m highly discouraged at the direction of this book. On the positive side, I love the art!

The easy solution would be go to a different dentist and next time make sure to brush/floss regularly.

Ha. Well, I did drop your book a while ago. But based on what I read here, it doesn't seem like I'm missing much!

And I already do brush and floss regularly.
