Wow. Apparently a lot can ride on a good ol’ fashioned battle of the bands. Like, a lot

I imagined this Bebop and Rocksteady vs. Tokka and Rahzar fight would be pure comic book violence. But Campbell actually casts one side as sympathetic, thus skewing readers’ loyalties. Not the approach I expected. But I can’t complain.

You know what Sophie Campbell has turned this series into? The comic book equivalent of a young adult novel. Again, not the approach I expected. But I can’t complain.

The time-traveling Lita meets the child version of herself in this issue. Doc Brown would not approve!

Campbell gives us the IDW take on the “traditional pre-fight donut” moment from The Secret of the Ooze. It’s an amusing little nod.

We see Renet, a “timestress,” in this issue. I don’t recall ever having seen her in the main series before. Apparently she was in Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything!

Apparently next issue we get Bebop and Rocksteady against Tokka and Rahzar. As the latter were seemingly stand-ins for the former, there’s tremendous meta-appeal there.
