Audaciously loud and colorful, TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road #3 continues its hilariously over-the-top adventure with some surprising twists and turns! Rocksteady and Bebop steal the spotlight from the Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles as they trail off onto a road trip full of carnage and mayhem.

Time-traveling menace Savanti Romero returns to enlist Bebop and Rocksteady again…but he’s brought a whole heap of trouble back with him from the 79th dimension!

Here are 5 reasons why you should get TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road #3:

5) What Happened Before…

In the first issue, Bebop and Rocksteady just want one thing; they want to go home. On their road trip to New York, Bebop and Rocksteady never realize the government is chasing after them, with Special Agent Reavenwood leading the troops. The madcap duo face another uphill battle; they’re human and they’ve started bleeding.

4) The Writing!

Writers Ben Bates and Dustin Weaver focus more of the brawling attitudes of Bebop and Rocksteady. What would happen if the most wanted mutants followed someone deadlier than Shredder? Focusing on this ruthlessness, letterer Shawn Lee highlights loyalty and vile atrocities, which is what Savanti Romero demands from them.

3) The Artwork!

Artist Ben Bates illustrates Savanti Romero with long, curvy horns and a mouth full of fangs. Notice how Savanti is smaller is size when standing next to Bebop and Rocksteady. I really like how we can now see Bebop’s new skeletal arm as if we the readers had X-Ray vision.

2) The Colors!

Colorist Brittany Peer goes all out with the eye-popping hues during Bebop and Rocksteady’s action-packed plane chase. During the climax, we have explosions, plane crashes, and all-out gun battles!  

1) A Hilarious Read!

With a big jolt of adrenaline, TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road #3 delivers the action in all its glory! I can’t wait to see what happens next to Bebop and Rocksteady!
