Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #104

I loved this issue. After keeping the Turtles separate following the death of their father, they reunite in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #104 not to face some imminent threat but to finally share their grief with their loved ones. Donnie's trip to Mutant Town proves to be the catalyst needed to push Raphael and Donnie to returning to Leonardo and Michelangelo and tap into the strong family dynamic at the core of the title.

That alone would have been enough, but there's plenty more story here as the Turtles together return to Mutant Town to set-up shop as protectors, mentors, and perhaps even senseis for a next generation of hero. There are some great moments among the foursome and with other characters including a nice back-and-forth between Alopex and Raph.

The other piece of the story picks up on Sally Pride splitting from Old Hob and the Mutanimals and protecting the adorable young mutants (all of whom get names here). A catharsis from what has been lost, a new story begins here. of Must-read.
