This issue gives us the falling action and conclusion to the story arc with the Punk Frogs, Dr. Barlow, Venus, etc. It’s not a thrilling read in that sense. But there’s some groundwork laid for future stories.

Pablo Tunica and Ronda Pattison continue to do great things with Venus’ IDWverse look. I realized as I was reading this issue that it’s a little reminiscent of Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. She’s definitely distinct among the other Turtles, which is important.

Toy Chest Theater: Ghostbusters Day with Mitchel Wu

I’ve been looking for an excuse to feature a Mitchel Wu shot for awhile. Low and behold, an opportunity has presented itself. Wu posted this image just in time for today, the 37th anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters, a.k.a. Ghostbusters Day!

Fun fact: In The Nightmare Before Christmas, Zero (seen below) was voiced by Frank Welker, an iconic voice actor who also voiced Ray Stantz and Slimer in The Real Ghostbusters.
