It is New Comic Book Day (NCBD) and I hope that all of you have visited your local comic book stand or store to get the latest issues that have been released this week. With that being said, we are taking today to finish up a miniseries that IDW has been releasing every week for the last five weeks in TMNT Bebop And Rocksteady Hit The Road which is the sequel to Bebop and Rocksteady Destroy The World. Leading up to this point, Bebop and Rocksteady have faced everything from Wingnut to time travelers and something called a J.O.B.. It has been a crazy time for the duo, but they haven’t seen anything like Agent Ravenwood who we recently found out was a mutant herself. She has been obsessed with the idea of taking down Bebop and Rocksteady and with her boss on her case, she wants to prove him wrong. In issue #5, she happens to track them down before they make it to New York, but someone has it in for her as she now has to do battle with Bebop and Rocksteady and she’ll need all the tricks that she has because there not sleeping till Brooklyn.
This has been a fun and interesting series to say the least that I would dig if it was turned into a animated film. It would just be cool to see them on your TV screen in this kind of zany adventure as they stay clueless to what is really going on in the world. There was a lot of things I liked about this comic book versus a lot of things that I didn’t like about the comic book. One of the things I liked for sure was the writing because the humor was great and it felt like you were watching Bebop and Rocksteady. I even liked the fact that there was robots of them that talked like them. The thing that I didn’t like was that the robots looked too much like transformers. Maybe that was done on purpose, but if it wasn’t then I didn’t like it. There were parts of the artwork in this one that were just too chaotic and lazy in my opinion. I was also left wondering what the hell was Agent Ravenwood? You’ll have to read the comic to know what I am talking about here. I loved the story, but I only thought the artwork was OK. Check out the series, check out all the covers together below, and check out my grades for this issue below:
