Old Hob, Slash, Herman the Hermit Crab, Mondo Gecko and Pigeon Pete have become a force to be reckoned with in the TMNT ongoing - and now they've got their own miniseries, in which their teamwork will be put to the ultimate test! When someone close to the group is kidnapped, the Mutanimals end up on an adventure more wild and dangerous than they could have imagined! What mysteries lurk at...The Null Group?

    Overall, IDW knocks another book out of the park and delivers us a new take on the Mutanimals. As with most of the Turtles books, you really don't want to miss this as everything seems to build on each other in this universe. Go buy it. Read it. And give me some comments. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Feb 26, 2015

    All in all TMNT Mutanimals #1 is a must read. If you've been reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,I would recommend giving Mutanimals a chance since there aren't that many stories that focus on other characters in this world. It's well written and the art style works fits the story perfectly. Read Full Review

    Kuhn is also at the top of his game, particularly in how he renders the Old Hob flashback and the issue's multiple action sequences. Despite this opening chapter's 'unevenness', it's definitely not due to the quality of the creative team. With plenty of action and great characters to explore, this one should definitely be on every TMNT fan's pull list. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Coleman Feb 27, 2015

    The story set-up is quick and gets right into the action. There's no origin story here just a group of mutant animals that get on with their stuff. The ending also leaves the book in a good place. We get to know everyone, we understand the stakes, we know who the bad guy is (kinda) and we know where things are going. Read Full Review

    If you were a fan of TMNT style adventures and, like me, remember some of these characters and such, definitely worth a read. Good, clean fun. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Feb 25, 2015

    Turtles readers know by now that the mini-series do tie in heavily with the overall storyline, so picking this up is a no-brainer. Just know going in, that its not perfect. Fans of the new mutanimals will enjoy this immensely, hopefully Slash will get a little more love as the story unfolds. Sticklers for chronology should to read TMNT #43 first, but this first issue is fairly self-contained. Read Full Review

    Andy Kuhn's artwork reads properly, but doesn't measure up to the quality we've been seeing in the turtles books for the past couple years. The story itself includes snappy comedy and a couple genuinely heart wrenching moments, I highly recommend turtle fans pick this up.
