Still loving this main TMNT series right now. Maybe more than I have in a while. This picks up where the last left off. The Dark Water agents have the Mutanimals prisoner after brainwashing Slash and having him brutally attack them. A couple of them do make a break for it – including Mondo Gecko and his slowly regenerating tail.
Meanwhile Hobs has come to the Turtles looking for help in rescuing the Mutanimals. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the gang, Dark Water is moving in on them.
I love the Mutanimals inclusion here. And I love how the first four issues of TMNT Universe have now overlapped with what’s happening in the main series. It makes the Universe stuff now feel more like it’s serving the purpose of filling in backstory ahead of time.
