(What else need be said?!)
Telling by this issue’s cover, the Shredder was indeed revealed this issue as Karai introduce him to Splinter. Splinter is faced with a challenge and in his awesome ninja style he defeats his opponent only to be told by Karai that he must kill them. Of course Splinter refuses citing that he would dishonor himself and then we get what we’ve all been waiting for: Shredder removes his helmet and reveals himself to be Oroku Saki, Hamato Yoshi’s longtime enemy! Somehow he has overcome death and remembers his past life. But the reunion is cut short as the Shredder orders his minions to destroy Splinter, leaving readers with a cliffhanger at the end of the book.
Meanwhile, the boys in green are bickering like brothers sometimes do and it’s Mikey who is the voice of common sense. April drops the turtles off at her father’s antique shop where they are to stay for awhile. As April and Casey drive off in her van, we see a mysterious woman whose watched all of the comings and goings of the group. The question is, who is the woman? In order to find out of course you gotta pick up next month’s issue.
I’m enjoying this new series and I’m loving the mixture of old and new in the story. As always, Eastman, Waltz, Duncan, and the rest of the crew are doing an amazing job.
