TMNT: Secret History of the Foot Clan Mini-Series Review
The Shredder's history is revealed!
Every since like Issue 10, we've all been wondering that since Splinter was reincarnated as a rat, just how did the Shredder come back? Well now the question has answered.
Throughout the mini-series, while we watch the Turtles and friends fight the Shredder for the Foot Clan's sacred text, we also learn history of Oroku Saki and why he's evil.
Storywise, the mini-series is great. There every scene goes to the story and character development, the transitions from the past to the present are fluent and well executed, and at the end you understand everything that you've read and any loose plot threads are obviously going to be revealed in the main series or the upcoming Villain Micro-Series.
The new artwork was awesome. You can tell that writer and artist, Mateus Santolouco, put a lot of effort and detail into the art. Santolouco, who is set to become the new ongoing artist in the main series, goes for a more realistic look for the series. This was great for the most part, but while his designs for the Turtles are good, when I first read the first issue of the mini-series, I found myself getting a bit of "artistic whiplash" after reading it because my mind was used to the more cartoony design from the main series, but the designs grew on me.
Overall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret History of the Foot Clan is a must read any fan of TMNT fan. If you haven't read it yet, you should buy it or purchase the upcoming collected edition.
9.0 of the 10
