      1. It is all going to depend on how Spawn turns out out. Thinking about it though, I might need to rotate comics too so I don’t burn out.

        Great, one more thing to think about and juggle 😀

  1. Looking through the pages I think it would take me a little time to get used to them being colored. I watched some of the cartoons and movies so I’m used to color there, but I guess when in print I’m still used to it being in black & white. I remember that artwork being a bit rough, too. But glad to hear you’re still really enjoying the story. This is increasing my urge to pull back out and reread the collection I have of the original Eastman & Laird stories Bookstooge mentioned. But I want to get through 100 Bullets first. Then I’ll have to decide whether to start on TMNT or the Battle Angel manga (or some other shiny story that catches my eye before then). 🙂

    1. That’s funny, hahah! I think it’s because of how I knew these guys from the animated series and movies that I find it so normal to see it all in colour! Yeh, it’s an “unpolished” style but it works fine. Some of the “guest artists” do better, in my opinion, but I think the idea of this “reboot” is to still keep the original series’ style at heart and that’s definitely well done here. I’m glad to play a role in that increasing urge then! I too am curious to hear about the original series and will probably try it out later down the line, especially after I’m caught up in this ongoing series hahah Alita will be a quick read, at least the main series (I read and reviewed those back in 2018 myself hahah). Whichever series you do pick up after 100 Bullets, I’m sure you’ll have a good time! 😀 Thanks for reading, my friend!

  2. My son was a huge TMNT fan. He watched the shows, read the books that he got at the library and had all the toys. He even dressed up as one of them one year for Halloween. I wonder if he would appreciate these comics? Nice review Lashaan.

    1. Now that’s a fan! If he’s ever interested in diving back into that franchise, I think he’d find it pretty cool to go through this comic book series or to even collect this beautiful edition. There are almost 15 volumes with similar cover designs and they’d be pretty awesome to showcase on any bookshelf. 😀 Thanks for reading, Carla!
