So, I'm not going to lie, I'm not a huge fan of the animation in the new TMNT series on Nickelodeon. It just looks weird and I've always been used to the turtles from the '80s. I like the show well enough, bu the animation and their new look is just not my favorite.
That being said, I think it actually translates well to a 2-d format. I really enjoyed the art and the colors in this comic, and the characters seem more... traditional?... than they do in the TV show. I really loved the additional artwork between the chapters. It was sometimes a little darker than the rest of the comic, but I felt like it captured the turtles accurately without being too scary for little kids.
The stories were fun and entertaining, and one chapter even played with zombie culture. I love that the new show has modernized the turtles a little bit, but still stayed true to the characters. Well, the fun characters. Not the dark, gritty, original comic turtles. It was also educational too - Donatello knows what he's talking about! In the zombie chapter, he gives the actual origin of zombies... and I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. It's fun for kids and adults!
I would totally recommend this to any fans of the TMNT show, comics, etc. I believe that anyone, young or old, could enjoy this comic. Maybe buy it for your kids or your nieces & nephews or your friends' kids and read it with them. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment! 4/5.
As for the stories, we get one involving Snakeweed, one with zombies, one with a secret military junkyard, and one with Foot soldiers using poison. It’s a good mix of stories. None of them have much impact on the continuity of the show. In other words, they’re not required reading and you won’t miss much if you don’t read these stories. There are some nice character moments, such as Mikey being right for once, but nothing too dramatic. Nonetheless, it’s a fun set of stories.
Overall, definitely recommended for fans of the new TMNT show!
This graphic novel pulls together four issues from the series. The boys fight some new villains and some familiar ones. Mikey goes crazy after watching a zombie marathon and then spotting what he thinks is one in the streets. Splinter, Krang, Dogpound and Snakeweek show up. Master Splinter seems to be training April in the arts of the ninja as well.
These are 4 standalone issues. Each one tells a complete story with no lead in or continuation in other issues, much like an animated series would be. Obviously, you would need to be a fan since there is no explanation given as to why there are large turtles wielding weapons and eating pizza running around, but we should all be familiar by now, right?
Good writing and art keep it lively and moving along and perfect for young turtle fans.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
