TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #115 hits stores on Wednesday, March 17th, promising a showdown between the Turtles, Karai’s henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady, and the mutant “babies” Tokka and Razhar. After failing to settle the mutants, our protagonists are forced to come up with a new strategy. Unfortunately for them, Rocksteady and Bebop have some plans of their own.

Story

After failing to subdue Tokka and Razhar, Jennika “drops in” on Bebop and Rocksteady’s mayhem. Taking a note of the surrounding chaos, she quickly leads her friend away. But Karai’s henchmen don’t take kindly to this choice.

Everything the Turtles have attempted so far has amounted to zilch. Even with the future version of Lita’s help, the ninjas can’t seem to make one ounce of a difference.

It’s not until Donatello comes up with an ingenious idea: put the babies “mom” on speakerphone. The hope is that her voice will calm them down. But on a grander scale, this act represents a shift in our heroes’ consciousnesses. Writer Sophie Campbell shows how these characters must work with those they despise in order to prevent greater disasters. The future literally depends on all of them.

Artwork

Campbell’s penciling and ink work, combined with Ronda Pattison’s coloring, offered brilliant displays of action throughout this issue. The Turtles and their allies’ bright colors stood out from the dark backgrounds of Mutant Town. This helps readers follow their movements. Shawn Lee’s lettering also adds to the action with a great use of onomatopoeia fonts that follow each character.

Conclusion

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #115 is a thrill and a half. We loved both the epic fights and the heartfelt message encouraging everyone to come together.
