Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #10 Review
The Foot Clan has master Splinter and the Turtles (along with Casey and April) have been searching all over the city for their furry friend. While the Turtles have a verbal melee over how to approach the situation and who they think is behind the scheme, Splinter is forced to fight for his life. Meanwhile in another part of the Big Apple, the mutant Hob is getting his ear chewed off by scientist Baxter Stockman. Hob was supposed to keep Splinter in captivity, but a little group of ninjas changed that situation. Now Hob's failure reflects poorly on Stockman because he assured the powerful alien General Krang that Splinter would be there. Poor Krang just wants an army of super soldiers but nothing seems to be going his way.
I wasn't the biggest supporter of Dan Duncan's art at first, but his style has grown on me more and more with each new issue, and, as proven by the cover, he's capable of some superb work at times. The proportions and lines for movement feel a little odd at times, but overall the style fits the tone incredibly well and the coloring, especially for the Turtles, is vibrant.
The story is going at a solid pace and I'm thrilled to see what will happen in the next issue. All of the elements are beginning to merge together and I can't wait to see how it'll play out. Plus, it'll have more of Splinter in action. What's not to love?
