'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 12: Vengeance, Part 1' follows in the wake of events of previous issues. I plan on not spoiling things, but that might make some things sound vague.
The Turtles are back from their trip to Burnow Island and the aftermath of their attack on the Technodrome. Big things have happened. The Turtles may never be the same. There is a power void among the bad guys that the Purple Dragons are seeking to fill. Casey is out for a final (?) showdown with Hun. Even the Mutanimals make an appearance. There are a lot of pieces in play. So many that I was sure it wouldn't wrap up in this volume. That's why it's a part 1.
I haven't been keeping up with the Turtles, but I remember the news about the events that led up to this one. I like what I read here. It's got a good feel and the Turtles and their friends are as gritty or grittier than I remember. The family has grown, but so have the enemies. You're better off reading prior issues before this, but this was a pretty satisfying read in my opinion.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
