A scholar gives a talk on a legendary clan of ninjas. Little does he know that his knowledge will show him that the clan still exists.
In a series of flashbacks to history, the story of the Foot clan is fleshed out. Shown are the secrets of the immortality of it's leaders and how Shredder came to power over the years. In the present day, the professor is tempted with a job that will give him further knowledge into what he seeks, but it puts him in danger. It's up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to save him.
It's a good story. A lot of it is told in flashback, so the usual characters aren't featured as much as some might like, but there is plenty of action, and plenty of the turtles and Casey Jones when it is all finished. The art is action packed with lots of action lines drawn in panels to show speed and direction, and things extending out beyond panels. Flashbacks are done with muted colors and rougher panel outlines that give them more of a hand drawn look. It's a nice touch. It's always good to catch up with Raph, Don, Leo and Mikey.
