Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #108 features a very fun dynamic set of events. One of the best things about this series is that it refuses to never take itself too seriously while ensuring that its subject matter still resonates. This allows for a fidelity amongst its characters while always having these nods towards the absurdist nature of the events being carried out. It’s nice for a series to offer this tone while still allowing itself to take random cartoonish events that just breathe joy into the overall work.
Writer Sophie Campbell continues to offer intrigue and fun with each passing issue. She shows true care and proper understanding of how indelible this series is, and not only gives us what we want, but offers us things we never knew we needed for the Turtles.
Campbell is joined by Ronda Pattison, who has done some really fun scripts for the character dynamics within the series. It never lets itself be choppy or too corny, and its humor should be able to get a smile out of even the most hardened cynics. Even more, Pattison is doing double duty as both script writer and colorist. Her colors offer a unique reading experience that is washed with some unique page layouts.
Going into the art, Nelson Daniels really makes this some dynamic action. The flow in his artwork really proffers unique character poses, and he has a knack for fun interaction. The physicality of his characters really lends itself to a cartoon art style that furthers into how this story is being told.
Daniels also letters the issue, putting some newfound voices into this issue with the addition of some cool lettering and captions. The way he inserts these little flourishes really helps engage readers in the trajectory of this plot.
Overall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #108 is a fun issue with a lot more exploration and added dynamics.
