Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #103

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #103 takes an unexpected hard right turn after foreshadowing the dangerous mutant weasels unleashed on Mutant Town. Although the trio do cause some havoc, they are revealed to be mostly-harmless kids.

Their impact on Mutant Town isn't the damage they do. It's their mere existence and the fact that Old Hob was selling them to the Foot that causes Sally Pride to take a stand with potentially serious consequences concerning the Mutanimals.

In the other pages of the issue, the plot continue to follows the turtles. The disappearance of Michelangelo allows for some bonding between two of the brothers while Donatello seeks some comfort in an old friend by visiting April. Raphael is his usual churlish self, although Jennika does get a couple of good licks in calling out the turtle, and his brothers, for recent behavior. These continue to be strong character-driven moments while the story unfolds outside of the turtles' vision. What will, finally, bring them back? Worth a look.
