    Eastman and Waltz have established themselves as a great writing team. They place the characters in moments of repose in order to give the readers a different way to look inside them. Too often, comics are concerned with making sure that there is enough action. Eastman and Waltz are making sure that there is enough character development. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 14, 2017

    A mixed bag of an issue then, but one where the good far outweighs the bad.  A new immediate threat has been introduced, with a far more menacing one lurking on the periphery, and providing the writers can avoid re-treading old ground too much with our bickering brothers, this could end up being yet another truly enjoyable story arc.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 16, 2017

    Tom Waltz's latest is a juggling act of sorts, the writer moving into the series' next arc with a flurry of different moves. Aside from a harrowing opener, the initial roll-out is on the slow side, Waltz content to focus on the Turtle's mental state now that they're out on their own. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Feb 13, 2017

    All that being said, however, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #67 looks like the start of a very promising story arc. It's worth picking up just for the final fight scene alone"just like the next one will be worth picking up to see who survived it. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 15, 2017

    TMNT Ongoing #67 sets up a new story arc for the series as the Turtles are officially on their own without Master Splinter to help or guide them. Leonardo is learning what it truly means to be a leader and that teenagers are truly hard to deal with. The Earth Protection Force is back and action and wants to rid New York of its mutant problem. With a new way to remotely control mutants their first target is Slash and with him under their control, they are coming for the Mutanimals and the Turtles next! This is a good set up issue for the rest of the arc. There is a lot of dialogue and explaining of certain details that do bog down the flow of the story. The art continues to be spectacular, with a great cast of artist rotating in and out of this series. This looks to be another exciting arc in this series and now that the set-up is out of the way, it will be fun to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Chris Cooper Feb 16, 2017

    We're past the standalone issues that saw us out of 2016 and into 2017. They were of such high quality that I was reticent to get back into story arcs. TMNT #67 puts me at ease. Let's do it! Read Full Review

    A generally good, quieter issue with fun artwork, which is unfortunately a little uneventful and some odd slips in tone. Read Full Review

    the intro to this issue with Slash was incredibly touching. the monstrous mutant is enjoying himself reading a book. he stops to answer a rooftop pigeon as to what he's doing doing, then asks the pigeon if he'd like him to read the story to him. such an endearing moment.
    the peace and tranquility can only last so long before Agent Bishop and the 'Earth-Protection-Force' show up.
    the moment of horror from the E.P.F.'s attack was so beautifully illustrated by Mateus Santolouco. even though it was a terrible moment Mateus really captured the emotion.
    after Slash is captured he is put under study, and they are able screen from tests that he had previously been tortured.
    Bishop wants to turn Slash into a weapon against his fellow mutants.

    i was very grateful for the story in the companion series 'Tmnt:Universe' showing just how much of a complete bastard Agent Bishop is.
    even though seeds had been planted throughout the ongoing series, the characters of the E.P.F. and Darkwater had been given more room to develop and better incorporate into the series.

    when we catch back up with the Turtles, most of them are enjoying some down time and also getting under each other's skin as family often does.
    after a minor altercation Leonardo leaves out of frustration, and does something that pleasantly caught me by surprise.

    we later come back to Slash after the E.P.F. had a chance to tinker with the poor guy's mind, he is sent right into the Lair of the Mutaninals. unaware that their friend has been turned against them, the Mutanimals are completely caught off guard.
    chaos ensures.

    Hell yeah, Santolouco is back! Not only is his art detailed, but he excels at both quiet character moments and action scenes. The page with the building collapsing is illustrated so well by the panels that appear to tumble down the page. The story is like a gut punch, it's difficult to see friends forced into confrontation, but a quiet moment between Splinter and Leo gives the reader a chance to take a breath and reflect. It's a decent jump-on point if you aren't already reading the series, just read it!
