TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN # 3, available on Wednesday May 26th, delves deeper into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael years ago. In the previous issue, Michelangelo stumbled upon April, their daughter Casey Marie, and a number of other resistance fighters after attempting to infiltrate the new Overlord’s base in New York City. But do our heroes also have the chance to change something in the team?

The story begins with the New York overlord Hiroto, the son of Karai and grandson of the Shredder, who addresses the people. Readers will remember the warrior who waged an all-out war against the city’s resistance forces, which now include Mikey, April, and Casey Marie. Now Hiroto promises to fight even harder against these « terrorists » and weed out anyone who gets in the way.

Back underground, April shows Mikey the severed head of the robot Fugitoid. Immediately, readers are transported back in time, where they learn more about the circumstances that led to the death of his brothers. Somehow the focus is on Fugitoid.

This form of storytelling by Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman introduces us to any new information at perfect speed. This prevents the readers from being overwhelmed. But it also builds anticipation as we uncover every event that led to the current dystopia.

The illustrations in this issue are fantastic. Esau and Isaac Escorza’s pencil and ink work offers readers an incredible amount of detail that helps bring this dystopian version of New York City to life. We also loved how Luis Antonio Delgado’s color scheme added tannic hues to the flashback scenes to make it easier to distinguish between the two periods. Additionally, Shawn Lee’s label boxes are well placed in each field so as not to distract readers from the other illustrations.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN # 3 reveals much of the background information readers have been waiting for. We can hardly wait for the next installment!
