The Turtles exile in Northampton at the family farm of April‘s parents continues as both Leonardo and Splinter attempt to work through their recent struggles and failures. Both receive visions of Hamato Yoshi’s wife and Leonardo’s mother helping to soothe their pain and trying to bring her family back together once more.
As Michelangelo struggles to put recent events down in writing and Donatello struggles without having the necessary equipment or research to do much of anything, Raphael continues to be distrustful of Alopex and the arctic fox’s actions concerning his recently brainwashed brother.
The low-key issue is very much presented as the calm before the storm. Alopex finds at least temporary acceptance with the Turtles, Leonardo begins interacting with his family, and even Raphael lets his guard down a bit. However, it is all to be short-lived as Karai‘s agents have found the Turtles which should lead into a much more action-packed issue next month. Worth a look.
