TMNT Adventures Special #7


Publication date: Winter, 1993

Cover: Chris Allan and Dan Berger

Contents:

*“The Return of… Monsterex!
*“It Takes Guts…


Turtle Tips:

*I would place “The Return of… Monsterex!” between the prologue of TMNT Adventures #41 and TMNT Adventures #42. Mainly because that is the closest narrative gap corresponding to when this issue was published, but also because Ninjara shows an unfamiliarity with American culture and entertainment. In issue #41, Raph was shown taking Ninjara to museums and teaching her about American pastimes, so this seems to fit in around there.

*I would place "It Takes Guts..." shortly after April O'Neil: The May East Saga #3. As it references the events of that miniseries, which was retconned into just a nightmare in TMNT Adventures Special #11, then "It Takes Guts..." cannot have "really happened", either.

If anything, a beautiful cover.

As much as I appreciate Garrett Ho's style and efforts on this issue's main story, that cover did tease me into getting psyched for an epic Chris Allan Monster-Vision Monster Mash!
