Realizing there is only so long they can remain hidden above ground while staying in the apartment building belonging to April‘s father the Turtles scour the city for a new subterranean home. What the Turtles don’t realize is as they hunt for a new home they are being hunted as well.
The comic opens by showcasing the origin of a new mutated turtle from Stockton Research Incorporated Laboratories who escapes containment, and causes havoc around town before beginning to hunting down the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I’m still not sold on Andy Kuhn‘s art, but the story, after the origin of the new mutant to prowl the city streets, moves at a good pace and I enjoyed the banter between the Turtles throughout.
I was surprised to see the comic reintroduce Slash so early in its run. His new origin is certainly more in line with the current comic (and far less confusing than trying to reintroduce him as an eco-terrorist from another dimension) and the first battle with his Turtle-brethren is certainly action-packed. Worth a look.
