    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 24, 2013

    With one good story after another, let it never be said that IDW isn't taking full advantage of this franchise. Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman continue to do brilliant work with the iconic characters, paying tons of respect to the original material while incorporating big changes which make the series feel fresh. While this issue only does the bare basics to introduce 'City Fall,' it makes up for a lackluster plot with a crazy fun and lengthy fight sequence and Eastman's fantastic visuals. The twist won't drop your jaws, but you're sure to be hugely entertained as the Turtles struggle to defy the odds. This issue deserves to be in your collection, fellow TMNT fans. Read Full Review

    This series has been a fan favorite since it started last year due to its classic feel from the original series from the 80's. If you're not reading this I recommend you go back to issue one and read it all"Don't forget the Micro-Series as well! Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 26, 2013

    Fans of Eastman's style will definitely want to pick this issue up as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #21 is filled with several fight sequences all drawn in the original style of the first TMNT comics. Longtime fans of the Turtles should be able to guess the identity of the Turtles' attacker, but it certainly doesn't take away from one hell of a great comic. Must-Read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 4, 2016

    Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman give us an almost one-shot that is full of nostalgia, awesome fighting and trash talking.  It all comes together into a fun time that is a must read for every Turtles fan, but also great for those just wanting to get a taste of what the hype is all about.  Highly Recommended.

    TMNT #21 is how this series should be done -character angles that are actually compelling, shocking twists and turns, and art that is nostalgic and epic in scope. Its a shame that every issue cant be drawn by Kevin Eastman, but as long as he (along with Waltz) can put out some decent scripts like this, fans can be entertained until the next time.

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Apr 25, 2013

    TMNT #21 does little more than allow us to step back from the onslaught of action over the last twenty issues. Splinter's warning is a nice segue to the Kitsune story arc, but the real star here is Kevin Eastman's pencils. From the first appearance of TMNT to now, nobody has captured the spirit of these books like Eastman. His pencils are savage, almost punk rock in their unrefined style. Eastman enjoys working with odd angles, allowing buildings to bend into bizarre mountain ranges. Streets twist into darkened roads. Eastman's work has a surreal element to it that cannot be duplicated. One can only hope that he continues to pencil TMNT. Read Full Review
