Debris 3 Review Short Version: Here’s the real short version of my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 14 review: If you are at all fond of the Ninja Turtles, or the idea of the Ninja Turtles, and would like to see the idea executed as well as it can be, you should really be reading Tom Waltz’s run on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As seen in this issue, the characters are deep (Splinter is given a lot of very nice development here, as is Rafael) and the book uses familiar TMNT tropes (Neutrinos, Krang, Baxter Stockman) and puts them all in new, and more interesting, places in the story.

Debris 3 Review
Debris 3 begins with a flashback of Maya learning to be a Protector and, in that moment, explaining why they don’t just use that sniper rifle on, you know, everything. The actions begins properly in Debris 3 with Maya and Kessel facing off against the new Colossal that they were confronted by at the end of the last issue. Rossmo has a really neat effect he uses a larger picture of something (like the Colossal) to show a time-lapse of the characters doing something. In a four part mini-series where space is at a premium it’s a clever and effective way to convey a lot more action in the same amount of pages. Given that Debris 3 is only the third issue of the series (natch), Wiebe has covered a pretty impressive amount of world here, doing a good job of implying a lot of things to make the world bigger than the series has time to explain specifically. Towards the end of the issue, Maya finds the truth about life beyond the walls of the city, but we won’t know how things will pan out until next issue. Debris has been a great read so far and I’m going to be sad to see the ‘junk punk’ series end next month. Still, it’s done a good job pacing its story, which reminds me a lot of those classic, self-contained sci-fi novellas, and I’m interested to see what kind of monsters and resolution are in store for the next issue. .
