Review: TMNT: Mutanimals #2

This has quickly become one of my most anticipated comics. It's only issue two and so much happens. The characters still have their own unique voices and motivations. This issue sees Hob and Slash fight over the way TMNT_Mutanimals02_cvrthey deal with things. Both have a point even if one is being slightly drastic. Pigeon Pete is amazing. I love the restraint by the team to not overload the story with him. He is in the background a lot but only has two moments in the foreground. Both moments are great, the first which involves no speech actually made me laugh out loud.

Mutagen Man gets a name, it's an organic moment between Mondo and Mutagen Man that really helps make the characters likeable.

The artwork is really good, Andy Kuhn is killing it. There's so much in this issue. This is the kind of comic I love to read then go back and study each panel, then copy out some of the cool images. The colors are deep so even the bright things seem muted, which adds to the gritty texture of the world.

I highly recommend getting this book. Track down issue one and start collecting this, it's going to be good.

Score: 4/5
