True.
Isn't the super soldier experiments biological engineering though? A totally different science field, right?

Also issue one referenced Krang was some kind of General. One of the characters was on the phone with him reporting. I need to catch up. I'm behind.

Hmmm. True. I would say this might suggest still being in the same universe but April also knows Baxter is nuts.

Yeah it was Baxter Stockman on the phone with "General Krang."

That's right. I forgot it was Stockman. The next issue comes out on Wed. I think I'm going to wait until this comes out on trade.

Re: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Comic Book "Reboot."

Got and read book #5 as well as the Michelangelo stand-alone.

Number 5 was good and reveals some more about the turtles' backstory as well as some more clues about what is happening here along the lines of what was speculated on up-thread.

The book ends with Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo getting their separately colored bandannas (making the whole identification issue I had easier) and Raphael getting his sais.

The Michelangelo one-shot/stand-alone..... Eh.

The story in it was decent, Michelangelo is out alone on New Year's Eve and he wants to be a "party dude" and enjoy the night rather than being at home with his brothers doing more boring stuff. It's a good story but the art in this book is atrocious and inconsistent. Michelangelo's size changes constantly, the coloring is poor and it's just really a very, very, ugly book. It looks like it was drawn by a grade-schooler. They should have had Eastman draw this, the guy who does the regular books or even the guy who did the Raphael stand-alone last month. It's an okay book, one to have if you're collecting the trutles' stand-alone books. But the art is just horrible.

Re: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Comic Book "Reboot."

I read issue #5 also and it would seem to debunk the earlier idea that the old continuity still exists. They couldn't have implied that it's a type of
any more other than spelling it out.

It also seems this series intends to have the best of both worlds by having the personalized bandannas colored. I'm cool with that but belts with their first initial is where I draw the line.

I didn't read Michelangelo last night so I'll get back with opinions on that later.

Also, due to holiday savings on Amazon I now have $12 in Amazon cash. I may apply that soon and pre-order vol.2 of the Ultimate Mirage Collection. If I do it now my cost would be $17 for the book. My final cost on the first was $12.

The personalized bandannas is good enough, even the movies got away with just that. Name/Letter plates on their belts would have been too far, I agree. But I'm glad they have the colored bandannas as it makes the turtles much, much, easier to identify.

And I agree that the Splinter side-story (very well draw, by the way) certainly telegraphs what the nature of this version of the characters is and it seems very interesting. Can't wait to get April introduced to our heroes.

Finally read the Mikey one shot and Trekker I totally agree on the art, it was crummy.
I did like the story itself though and wouldn't mind seeing undercover "Cat Lady" cop make a return appearance. I think the series needs a "Gordon" for the Turtles to have as a liaison.

So two weeks till issue #6.

Yeah, the story was good and the cat-lady character was good.

But, man the art was just terrible.

Re: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Comic Book "Reboot."

Issue #6 came out this week (as well as, I believe, the Donatello one-shot but my LCS didn't have it when I went there the other day.)

The book was good, the artwork is still not impressing me much but it's alright. We're introduced to the mousers and -a bit disturbingly- the turtles stand by while an apparently innocent man gets killed. Anyway, the book has been good but it needs to maybe pick up the pace a bit and get the turtles and April together as well as introduce The Shredder.

The LCS I go to most of the time was already out of Donatello.
I'm going to try another store tomorrow.

Did manage to pick up issue #6 though.

This is pretty cool indeed. The pizza looks like some kind of game from the brief glimpse we get of it.

It seems the Donatello micro one shot has not shipped.
It's not on the list for Jan.25 nor Feb.1

I was starting to think I'd missed it cause I know it was supposed to ship in January originally.
