If you remember from last month, we left our Turtles on the streets of New York, about to fight Bebop and Rocksteady. So, naturally, Issue #40 picks up right where we left off in the middle of the TMNT battle of the year! But, our heroes-in-a-half-shell aren't the only ones who get to fight Shredder's strongest baddies. Hob and his army of mutants also get to join in the fight. And, I think you'll be surprised who ends up having a plan to save the day!
As always, kudos to Kevin Eastman, Bobby Curnow, and Tom Waltz for a story well written. This trio really knows how to put together an amazing fight in such a short issue. I'll never forget the first storyline I read in the TMNT ongoing series (only a few issues ago . . . ) in which Shredder and Krang fought each other on a sinking battleship. And, with TMNT regular Mateus Santolouco at the helm of this issue's artwork, you won't find a more stunning series at your local comic book store.
So, if you're already hooked on the ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, pick up Issue #40 before it's too late. Or better yet, if you have yet to start reading these comic books, what better time to join in than with the battle of the year!
