Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #48

In an action-heavy issue Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #48 moves the title one-step closer to its concluding 50th issue as Splinter, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Robo-Donatello fight for their lives against the seemingly never-ending supply of Mousers and Flyborgs controlled by the Shredder and Baxter Stockman. Even with the arrival of back-up in Alopex and Angel things look bleak for our heroes.

Aside from the action, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #48 also begins to foreshadow events which will play out over the course of the series' final two issues. Old Hob's decision to liberate Hun from the police is likely going to cause its share of trouble. And despite finally having the upper hand over the Turtles, it appears the Shredder may need to watch his back as his control of the Foot Clan may be in danger of slipping away.

With only two issues left the series continues to build to a finale that has an increasing number of stories to wrap-up. Since I've enjoyed this series more than any TMNT comic since the first volume I'm going to be sad to see it end. Worth a look.
