l intro 1712877699

“The Last Ronin” is undoubtedly one of the most unique and powerful stories in the entire “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” universe, making it worth a read for any fan of the franchise. But for those who want more of a crash course, we’ve got you covered.

The comic takes place in a dystopian New York City run with an iron fist by Oroku Hiroto, son of Karai and grandson of the Shredder. It’s revealed early on that only of the four Ninja Turtles has survived the brutal rule of the Foot Clan, but since this character wields the weapons of all four brothers, it isn’t clear at first which one is the eponymous “last ronin.” We’ll let new readers discover who the surviving Turtle is for themselves, though the answer might not be obvious.

Along with some familiar faces and the descendants of some other familiar faces, the final Mutant Ninja Turtle joins and helps lead a resistance movement based in his old sewer home. Throughout the comics, some flashbacks explain what happened to Master Splinter, Casey Jones, April O’Neil, and the other three Turtles. Other classic villains take the field as well, including Baxter Stockman, but with a more sinister and dangerous edge than “TMNT” fans are typically used to.
