Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #105

Before throwing the Turtles into the next big arc, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #105 offers an interlude for our heroes to grow, relax, reflect, and build on what they've learned since reuniting in New York. This quiet issue is full of wonderful small moments for several characters. While evil lurks on the periphery, it doesn't intrude.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #105 offers a couple of long-overdue moments where my favorite of the characters created for this comic is concerned. First, Raphael finally lets down his guard and allows Alopex in. Second, Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo, and Michelangelo all welcome the arctic fox as an official member of the Splinter Clan.

Along with the concert that allows the turtles to blow off steam, we also get the beginnings of their new roles as instructors and masters as the Splinter Clan continues to grow even more. It appears Splinter's legacy is in good hands, and the Turtles (and their new friends) will be ready for whatever happens next.
