One of the standards I use to judge a comic is how much it makes me care about something I never thought I'd wind up so emotionally invested in. The all-time champ in this regard is, of course, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, where I was moved to tears by the romance between a flash drive and a talking car, but IDW's Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles is a close second for making me genuinely care about whether an Arctic fox named Alopex could truly find friendship in this cold, cruel world.

A lot of that had to do with the incredible art of Sophie Campbell on key moments in Alopex's stories, which is why I'm incredibly excited about the solcitations for IDW's upcoming TMNT titles, in which Campbell returns to Alopex and teams her up with the invisible hero Nobody for a camping trip that's almost certain to go bad.
