Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #124

Christmas comes for the Turtles in the form of a silent issue without narration or dialogue. Playing on recent events, we see various members of the Splinter Clan searching in vain for the missing weasels . The first Christmas without Splinter is also felt by the brothers who still don't know about the new face hiding in the shadows as Oroku Saki finds Old Hob and the weasels, and lets the Turtles know through and anonymous message that they are safe finally allowing for a low-key Christmas.

Without the need for dialogue, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #124 hits on several of the themes of the current arc offering a melancholy Christmas for all concerned, but one at least where the Turtles know the weasels are safe. Saki continues to help where he can as we wait for the former nemesis to eventually reveal himself.
