Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #112

Whereas several of the previous issues have focused on how well things are going for the reunited Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #112 shifts to examining the cracks in Mutant Town. Picking up on the pain of rejection Mona Lisa felt after revealing her mutation to her parents, this month's issue continues to feed that theme by introducing the sullen Jay whose mutation into a venomous frog has made it impossible for him to touch another living soul.

All of this leads into a mutant support group for those struggling with their new lives where tempers flare over injustices, the Mutanimals, and even the Turtles. It also provides one of the more humorous panels of the series attempting to sum up the Turtles' bizarre history.

In an issue that brings Casey Jones to Mutant Town, he's largely overshadowed by the internal strife within what was once New York City. However, the Turtles may have a solution for who can gather and lead the mutants as they suggest Sally Pryde run for office.
