Don't miss this bone shattering issue that sets the stage for the final showdown in City Fall!

I never thought I be excited to see these two in the comics again. Great art as usual from this series and I love the writing really gives meaning two these bruisers.

This is just awesome! Their banter and appearance hits home with the nostalgia factor, but they are just violent enough and capable of going to some pretty dark places, that they are going to be a perfect fit in the IDW TMNT universe. I can't wait!

Unlike most TMNT fans, I don't have the nostalgia for Bebop and Rocksteady. Their cartoon appearances never really impressed me beyond their comic relief roles. Hence when they first showed up in TMNT 25 I wasn't really fussed about the anti climax. But I have to admit, this preview is winning me over with their dialogue and banter mixed with humour and dark violence.

I usually don't get the single issue

Micro issues but I can make an exception for this and Shredder's next month.

I do not like that art

Posted by DadaHyena

Yes, yes, yes, and YES! My favorite TMNT characters are FINALLY back, and this is going to be a great one. I already love how they're being handled story-and-artwise, and am definitely looking forward to where this one goes. Nostalgic freak-out ahead!

Yeah, but weren't they supposed to be film versions of Bebop and Rocksteady?
