The Turtles' journey through time continues, and the next stop is Feudal Japan! The Turtles will meet some familiar faces and be forced to make one of the most important decisions of their lives. Will stopping the Shredder mean the end of the Turtles as we know them?

    The epilogue is also legitimately goosebump-raising stuff, and serves as a perfect sign-off for what is probably the finest stand-alone TMNT story Ive read in quite some time. Obviously the story links into the previous and following issues, but this is a story that stands on its own merits, and is one that should be considered pretty much essential reading for any Turtle fans out there. I honestly cant recommend this one highly enough, folks. Even if you havent picked up the first issue, you owe it to yourself to give this one a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 23, 2014

    This limited series' second chapter is every bit as entertaining as the first -- but for totally different reasons, of course! While the debut issue was adorable and pure fun, this one takes a bit of a more emotional approach while never truly losing sight of the franchise's lighthearted nature. The trip to Feudal Japan is a massively satisfying addition to the team's new mythos and the ending is sure to stun you. TMNT: TURTLES IN TIME sure is turning out to be a great experience.

    The artwork by Charles Paul Wilson III is also very good, giving everything a classic feel and providing the action sequences with plenty of kinetic weight.It all adds up to another strong chapter in this miniseries that has me all types of pumped to see what they'll do next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jul 23, 2014

    Turtles In Time knocks it out of the park this month. After a good enough first issue, Burnham and company take it up several notches and gives us a story that hits the Turtles in a very personal place. The ending has a bittersweet touch as well. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Jul 26, 2014

    TMNT: Turtles in Time #2 is a fun issue in the end. This was aimed towards fans and longtime readers of the comic series. If you're a TMNT fan, then your going to love TMNT: Turtles in Time #2. It's one of those issues that every TMNT fan should have by now. Now that we're halfway through this mini-series. I wonder what other time travel shenanigans the turtles will cause in the second half of this mini-series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jul 22, 2014

    This was a powerful follow-up to the lighthearted premiere issue. This is the type of TMNT story that people remember. The art team also adds some unorthodox elements that give the comic a little more spice. For fans, this is must read and for those who are just getting into the IDW TMNT-verse, this is a solid stand-alone story. Read Full Review

    With genuinely engaging drama and assumedly lasting repercussions, Turtles in Time proves a welcome entrant to the IDW stable. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Jul 23, 2014

    I guess my biggest concern now revolves around how this series will affect TMNT. Are these Turtles the same because they reference back to that series quite a lot, but when did this all take place? The questions are endless. I really don't want this series to mess with TMNT because it is so sweet right now. I am hoping someone can come in next month to give us what we want; the Turtles doing some crazy shit that they can't in trouble for. That's what I want at least. Read Full Review

    Whoa! The Turtles meet a human Hamato Yoshi in the past ... but do they screw up their own future or save it? Is Saki fated to be an evil douche or is there a chance to redeem him? Last time I read a story arc involving Turtles and Renet the Earth-born pig, Cerebus, was involved ... maybe we will see how they REALLY became turtles.

    The art style fits feudal Japan nicely, but the turtles faces look a bit wonky. A couple plot points are shared with the third TMNT movie, but the story is very good, especially if you are familiar with the IDW turtles origin story and Secret Origin Of The Foot Clan. Great ending.
