Casey Jones Gets The Spotlight In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Microseries’ #6 [Preview]
After spending several issues being introduced to Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz’s reimagined TMNT continuity, every fan’s favorite hockey-masked sports enthusiast will get to strike out on his own a bit in this week’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Microseries #6: Casey Jones, written by Mike Costa and Ben Epstein, with art by Mike Henderson and covers by Henderson and David Petersen. This most recent tale about Casey Jones explores the sources of his aggression and examines the inner conflicts he faces as a less-than-studious college athlete who prefers moonlighting as a crime fighting vigilante with turtles to, say, reading chapters from a Biology 101 textbook. Strangely, I totally vouch for the way Casey budgets his time. All college Biology did for me was crush my notions of the feasibility of TMNT brand Mutagen. You can hit the jump to get to know this new Casey a little better via IDW’s seven-page preview of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Microseries #6: Casey Jones, after the cut.
Casey Jones has a peculiar life- hockey-playing student by day, vigilante by night. Throw in an alcoholic, abusive father and it’s no wonder you’ve got a guy who likes to whale on criminals with sports equipment! One night though, the criminal element strikes too close to home, and Casey is forced to decide how far he’ll go to keep a very important promise. A crucial moment in the life of Casey Jones!
