Verdict - 4.3

- I've enjoyed what IDW has done with all of it's reboot series like Transformers and G.I. Joe, and TMNT is no exception. The cover for this issue is intriguing with Slash looming over the turtles, while nothing special it would draw my attention. The art for this series has not been to my liking. I understand why but I still don't like it. Luckily this is the last issue with Kuhn. The only TMNT issue that I hated the art more was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual 2012, and I have never cared for Eastman's art. This issue continues the battle in the turtles new base from the last issue. It's nice to see the interactions of the turtles with another mutant and to see Leonardo try to reason with him. This issue also delves into the personalities of the turtles, for example how Michelangelo is kind and cares about others even though he is a goofball, and how Leo even though he can seem callus is actually very deep and knows he has to keep his emotions in check to be a Ninja. Overall I enjoy where this series is going and highly recommend it to everyone.
