Your rating: None

The current TMNT series has brought me back into collecting that series and remembering what I loved about them. This version has loads and loads of mutants (which I know some of the previous versions had also... though I remember a lot of those feel more in the goofy or just plain weird categories) that I actually enjoy seeing, not to mention Bebop and Rocksteady (although still idiots) are powerhouses here rather than comic relief - I think it was issues 39 & 40 where they they essentially help their own against nine other opponents (the majority of which were other mutants, and not wimpy mutants - their foes included 3 of the turtles, Splinter, Slash, and Alopex...).

Reminds me to go back and pick up the earlier issues, I'd been buying them off and on when I saw some mutant action and then the series finally got my full attention to collecting them steadily after the backstory issues of Alopex and then Bebop & Rocksteady were released.
