Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #140
From IDW Publishing
A new and interesting start for the TMNT in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #140 from IDW Publishing - is out this week.
A shamed mayor. A fallen wall. A new borough and broken trust among a found family. Left reeling from the events of Armageddon Game, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles grapple to hold it all together as the rest of New York City struggles to find equilibrium. The city's new dynamic means a new slate of challenges and opportunities. And while a dark threat lurks in the shadows of Mutant Town, several of the Turtles' closest allies separate themselves from the brothers.

This comes off of the outcome of the overarching Armageddon Game. This isn’t out for a while, so I will try not to add anything that will spoil that.
The Splinter Clan seem to be at a loss. Once the big bad is defeated, what next? There are some interesting aspects here, with the Turtles struggling with the new world and their place in it. Even so, this was a good issue and looks to set up what the new status quo is and where we will be going next.
Raphael is the mainstay here, and he is the one that finds the trouble - this finishes with an interesting ending and some good mixes of the City. Where this will lead will be interesting.
Leonardo is trying to get the brothers together, but you can see he is struggling. The others all have their own things to do.
We do get a good look around the city, and there is a couple of interesting looks from the future, which will make it interesting.
The artwork is different here, and there is some good use of the different mutants in the background and foreground outside of the actual action.
A good reset issue.
