Thanks again to IDW Publishing I was able to get an early look at the highly anticipated TMNT: The Last Ronin #2. This comic written by Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird, and Tom Waltz is packed full of action and emotions!

The Last Ronin #2 “First To Fall”

I really don’t know where to start. If you weren’t a hundred percent sure who The Last Ronin was after issue one, you will be when you read this issue. We start off with a major flashback scene that sets the mood for the whole issue. Also during this, we officially learn (if you didn’t already know) who the last Turtle standing is.

Still recovering from his fall, The Last Ronin and April O’Neil catch up from the events that took his brothers. She fills him in on what is going on in New York and how amazed she is about his recovery. We also learn more about the death of Splinter and his brothers. We are also introduced to a new character that makes this issue even more emotional. The fun high fiving and pizza-eating days are over, this issue’s story keeps going down a dark path as The Last Ronin is still planing his revenge.

The Art

The art team of Kevin Eastman, Esau & Issac Escorza, Ben Bishop Antonio Delgado, and Shawn Lee delivered again in a big way for this comic. The whole look of the book is amazing. Again, while the story had a very dark look, the creative team was able to put a lot of details on every page that kept your attention. The pictures not only told their own story as the comic progressed they filled you with so many different emotions. Also, the text was placed well throughout the comic. From a good font that was easy to follow to the font used to show the sound effects, it was easy to read without being distracted.

My Final Thoughts

The TMNT The Last Ronin #2 was worth the wait! As a turtle fan, even though the story is not what we are used to, you just want more! Like I said in my last review The Last Ronin is one of the best comics I have ever read. The Last Ronin #2 should be available today at your local comic shop (unless it got delayed because of all the snow this week).
