NB of the Week


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villains Micro #7: Bebop & Rocksteady
Written by Dustin Weaver
Drawn by Ben Bates

IDW has done an amazing job with their new Turtles series and considering how much they've released, it's impressive how high the quality has stayed (with ongoing, Micros and minis, it's been 47 total issues in two years!). However, up until this current story (City Fall), fans have had only one small hint to fan favorite villains Bebop & Rocksteady and that was almost two years ago. Now that Shredder and The Foot and waging war to take over the city, it's time for Karai to take some initiative and have her own warriors. A call is placed to all who want to serve and a battle royal is help, with the two left standing being able to change their lives forever. How will they change? By becoming badass mutants.
This spotlight on the two wasn't anything mind-blowing but as a fan, it was pure joy to see them wrecking havoc. They prove that they are pure force and great at destroying things. Brains and plans may not be their strong suit but that's why their henchmen. They now join the ranks of Krang, Baxter Stockman and Slash and I can only hope we get more and more characters reintroduced into the new Turtles universe. If you are a TMNT fan at all, this series is one you have to join. It's easily the best Turtles since the original Eastman and Laird stuff.
