This wraps up the “Desperate Measures” storyline – which would be the Volume 17 trade paperback of this series that started in 2011, if you can believe it. This issue was a solid end to the story that’s been going on the last few issues involving the Mutanimals. I really liked seeing the Turtles and Mutanimals and everyone working together as this new clan.
The ending of the issue was legit. There was a big showdown versus Dark Water and it ended in some rather violent and surprising ways. Good prevailed and yet there’s still no clear closure. This was a victory in battle, not in war. And I continue to enjoy this main TMNT series.
