Finally some backstory on Alopex
I've stayed away from most of the Microseries one-shots but this and the upcoming issue on Karai both interested me. The first new character Kevin Eastman created in years, its good to finally get a full backstory for Alopex who returns home for the first time since his mutation in a test of loyalty to the Foot Clan.
Of the various mutants the Turtles face, Alopex is one of the most interesting. Honorable and loyal, you could easily see him working with the Turtles is his origins had gone the other way. Although the character stays loyal to Shredder, despite the betrayal, this issue also plants the first seeds of discord between the mutant arctic fox and his master.
One final note, I'd actually rate this a 3.5 instead of a 3. You can find more of my reviews (with images) on RazorFine Reviews
