"The Last Ronin" IDW: Do you like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Never heard of them? Want to read a Turtle story without worrying about years of story lines? Want the story to matter and be connected to long running continuity? Well guess what? Every single one of you are in luck because this book does the impossible and delivers on every count! It's a dark future, a team of four brothers is reduced to a single Ninja, evil rules the land, and the lone turtle must complete one final mission to avenge his fallen family and destroy the evil overlord! It reads like The Dark Knight Returns takes place in a Blade Runner future. It's exciting, action packed, and there are two mighty reveals at the end of the book, We find out that [Redacted] is the Last Ronin when a long time friend, [Redacted] visits him. 8 shells out of 10
"Dark Nights Death Metal: Rise Of The New God" DC: I wouldn't say this is a required tie-in but it is so much fun. The splash pages are gorgeous and numerous. The meta narrative is on point and doesn't overstay its welcome. Plus the backup story continues the adventure from "DNDM Multiverses End"
If you thought cats in real life had issues, these kitties literally explode. Make sure you have a way to calm them down if you happen to be the poor sap that pulls an exploding kitten. Or, sabotage your friends by strategically hiding the exploding kitten somewhere else in the deck. Use cat combos to steal cards from other players or search the deck for the card you want. Russian Roulette but Cattified.
