    All in all this team did an excellent job. We know about Casey and April, why they're going so far away from New York in the first place and set up the story for the next few issues. It connects well with the main series that you don't need to look back and see when it all takes place. I recommend a lot of TMNT fans to give this comic a chancesince it looks like we're going to be getting a very unique miniseries. Read Full Review

    This book is a fictitious account of real life relationship dynamics"and some awesome supernatural stuff. Supernatural comic books are some of my favorite, and they can go in any direction, at any point in time, so you always need to be on the lookout for a plot twist or surprise here and there. That being said, I am genuinely excited to see where this series goes, what turns it makes, and how many surprises it will throw at me. This series is going to be a good one, so get stoked! And pick up a copy of issue #1 as soon as you can. Read Full Review

    Tamaki and Koh are a great pair but the series may not fully come together in the way I want until it can all be read at once. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Jun 16, 2015

    I really had no expectations with this comic book issue. I am a big fan of Casey Jones so I was very excited to give this a shot. That said, I overall liked it and will likely read the remaining three issues. Mariko Tamaki wrote a very fun and different story that expands on non Turtle characters. Overall, while there were issues that I had with the dynamic in Casey and April's relationship, I really enjoyed their characters. Irene Koh's art was just fantastic. I really loved the manga style. Paul Reinwand's colors really added to the art and the bright colors used were great. If you are currently reading the main TMNT story then I think that this would be a fun read. Read Full Review

    All in all, "Casey and April" #1 offers an unexpected, ultimately rewarding take on a TMNT property. I'll be curious to see where this goes, especially as the villain starts to make his move. Read Full Review

    I will definitely be taking another stab at Casey & April. Tamaki has a lot more to say and these two lovebirds have a lot more do. So if you are looking for a change up of TMNT and love the human aspect, go for this comic. It offers some insight into two of my favorite comic characters. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Chris Cooper Jun 17, 2015

    OK, so it's a not bad issue. But to be more than 'meh' to me I hope this story doesn't just become teenage melodrama. Signs say it won't, and I still trust IDW. But the jury is out. Read Full Review

    It's nice to have a chance to flush out Casey and April's relationship, and this point it's fairly cliched. This issue just gets your feet wet, hopefully we can dive in on the next one.
