And I return as promised, with more heroes in a half-shell in Teeneage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #3. Again, I'm running through the storyline in this entry, so spoilers beyond the link!

7 of 22 pages posted.

Last time, we saw Casey and Raph bond after giving a certain drunk daddy a beatdown, and a few more flashback involving April, ninjas, and a badass pre-mutant Splinter.

We rejoin New York City with Raphael and Casey getting a purse back from a mugger. By 'asking nicely', of course. ;D They retrieve the purse, and go back to return it to the little old lady it was snatched from. With one being a giant green mutant, and another a guy wielding a bat and wearing a hockey mask? It doesn't go well, and they're literally left holding the bag; whoops. But they can always leave it at a police station.

As they walk, we learn a little more about Casey and a tidbit about Raph:

Okay, seriously boys, stop making me love you. I know you're just gonna break my heart someday whenever April shows up... Also, Casey needs hugs. ;_;

Meanwhile, the other 3 turtles are training under Splinter's watch eye, and Donatello gets cocky. Splinter comments about underestimating ones enemies, prompting Michelangelo to ask why Old Hob has such a beef with them, and the answer he gets is that it shouldn't concern him what was, but what is.

"It's enough for you to know that Hob has his reasons."

We cut back again to 15 months before, where the alley cats still has the turtle caught in it's mouth...

Oh no you didn't. That rat took out a human ninja's eye, furball; you think he can't do the same to you?

He does just that, and the cat takes off, with some of the green glowy stuff from the broken test tubes on him, as well as Splinter and the turtles. The animals are safe again...not.

The animals drop into the sewer below, and our little rat hero finally passes out from exhaustion. When he wakes up, things are...different.

Returning to present day, we see three turtles jumping rooftops, yet again looking for their missing brother. B'ut there's dissention in the ranks; Mikey wants to go kick Hob's ass, Leo wants to follow Splinters order of finding Raph being priority #1. Don...agrees with Michelangelo. They've had no luck finding Raphael, while Hob gets closer and closer to finding them. It may be time to go on the offense, like the other night. Leonardo shoots back, saying they had no choice then, with Hob getting too close to home and threatening people for information.

Leonardo's is thiiiis close to pulling a hothead move on Don for that, but Mikey gets between them and tells them both to back off. Donatello relents, apologizing not for what he said, but how he said it. He still thinks they need to get more proactive while looking for Rapheal. Leo is hesitant, but is willing to give it a try. It couldn't hurt, right? Crisis over, the three brothers resume their patrol...

Moving back to Casey and Raph, who are indulging in some street food, when a pair of robbers run past them. Naturally, they take off after them, and deliver a few solid punches to take them down; Casey comments that they owe the two of them dinner after that stunt...

"Well, if it ain't the little lost turtle."

Did anyone NOT see this coming? No? Oh good, wasn't just me then.

I have to say, I really, REALLY love Dan Duncan's artwork in this book. It's rough like I'd want a New York-based comic to be, has so much freaking character to it, and the marker-style inking is PERFECT...also, the colorist is Ronda Pattison, who's done work on Atomic Robo, Next Men, and Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters. A woman comic artist working on MY Turtle book? YAY. <33

As much as I respect and love the comics, I'm starting to understand why the cartoons and movies gave them different coloured bandanas.

That said, I don't think even different coloured bandanas would help back in the day, given the comics were black and white for a long time.

It's just a homage to the original. #5 gives you what you truly want.

Wow..Casey does look like Spoony doesn't he? Speaking of, I recommend checking out the Casey Jones movie. It's just pure awesome!

I actually had a lot of problems with the movie. :\ Different strokes, I guess.

The thing I like about this series is the revamped origin. I love how this time around, the origin is more connected. The turtles were the pets of April, Splinter always kept watch over them even before the ooze and lived at the lab, the Foot invades the lab and are the reason for them being covered in ooze as well as Splinter scarring one of the ninjas, and now the encounter with Old Hob. If there's one thing I'm a bit..iffy about it's the reintroduction of Casey Jones. I always loved how he and Ralph met and initially came to blows before developing their bond. Not to say this new version is bad because it isn't, but still.

Oh my god, the sadface on that turtle up there as he's carried away by the cat. ;_;

Ditto on the Casey looking like Spoony thing, too.

I really want to pick this up now. It looks excellent.
