Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #117

I do so love this comic. The battle of the bands is finally here as Jennika and her group put on a show so good that Bebop and Rocksteady admit defeat without ever taking the stage. We also get peace between the Turtles and Karai and the end to future Lita's time travel adventure as events are back on the proper path allowing her to return home (and take a couple of guests with her as well). And that future, it looks mighty bright.

The issue is filled with several great moments from the victory of the band, to Koya's almost too cute for words request to return for future engagements, to Lita's sweet farewells (I'm not crying, you're crying!), to the start of a new romance, and to the tease of the return of a core character back to the main storyline (although in an entirely new context). The creative team event gives me a cool hero moment for my favorite Turtle.

While the current storylines appear to be wrapping up, there's still Old Hob and the election and the return of Oroku Saki who will be providing something quite different to the title than what various Turtle adaptations have done with the character in the past. Yes, the future does look bright indeed.
