Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #24

"City Fall" continues as April and Angel get some good news that Casey should be able to recover from his wounds (although the doctor states he may never play hockey again). The Turtles, however, have a far worse night. With Leonardo still missing the Turtles have no choice but to trust Old Hob who, to absolutely no one's surprise double-crosses Raphael, MichelangeloDonatello, and Splinter and leads them right into the Shredder's trap.

Although prepared for the trap the Turtles are shocked to find their brother fighting alongside the Foot Clan. Leonardo makes short work of the rest of the Turtles who are only saved by the arrival of Slash and are forced to fleeing knowing their leader is now working for their enemy.

With Leonardo on his side, the Shredder and the Foot (whose gang war attacks for total control of the city have increased as well) look almost unbeatable. The issue puts my favorite Turtle at the forefront and gives his brothers the unique problem of trying to stop the brainwashed Leonardo who is now out to destroy them all. Worth a look.
