    Years worth of threads begin to converge and weave themselves into the final image, as ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ #145 begins the countdown to the anticipated 150th issue. A truly engaging issue, same as they all have been in this run, that highlights just how far these characters and those shepherding them have come over the years.

    IDW has a knack for picking the right artist for each story arc of its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Case in point, where Gavin Smith’s stiff linework suited the urban action of the previous storyline, Vincenzo Federici’s more fluid style makes the transition into the magic-and-time-travel-based Armaggon arc seamless. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #145 is also the start of “The Road #150,” which isn’t simply another milestone issue but Sophie Campbell’s final outing as the series’ writer. Based on what Campbell does here, this arc is poised to be a tidy summation of all the themes she’s weaved through her 50 issues writing the book, here beginning with an intimate issue focused on Donatello and Leonardo that also reemphasizes how things have changed for their family in the wake of The Armageddon Game. Both brothers feel definitively like themselves yet distinctly different from who they were at the beginning of Campbell’s run. That’s a testament to how organic their arcs have been during Campbell’s tenure. The issue concludes with a twist that feels like something pulled out of a classic sci-fi tale. With TMNT #150 on the horizon, readers are in for a high-quality last act from Campbell.
