Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #122

Following the victory over Old Hob, the hard work of putting a legitimate government in Mutant Town begins. As for Hob, his escape thanks to the help of the weasels means he hasn't stopped being a thorn in the Turtles' side just yet, but it does look like he has larger plans involving the nearby islands and recruiting some new followers. I was hoping to see Hob get grudgingly woven into the fold, but it looks like he has other plans (which, given some hints here, may not be as villainous as some may think).

There's a hopefulness here with so many of the characters planning and building for the future, despite the challenges ahead. We also get Halloween night, complete with frankly adorable costumes for everyone. With characters splitting up important roles within Mutant Town, it's no surprise which Turtle takes on the role of protector, although Raphael's first attempt to collar Hob doesn't end so well.
