    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 3, 2019

    ‘90s-era comics fans are in for a treat this week, as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 will meet every expectation and then some. Parrott and di Meo don’t waste any time in pitting these two super-teams against one another, and the sparks that fly as a result are truly satisfying. With a plot that doesn’t stop and some truly breathtaking artwork, this is a slam-dunk of a crossover event. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Mr. H Dec 6, 2019

    Without going too much further, all I will say is " get Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1. It is a fantastic and great reward to long-time fans of both franchises. IDW and BOOM! are on a crossover roll and they aren't about to stop now. Shredder, Monsters, Foot Clan, what more could you want? Oh, how about Casey Jones and Lord Zedd?? That would be absolutely epic. So who knows what is left in store for us on the rest of this story, all you need to know is the little kid, and the big kids that you are, you don't want to miss it.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Simone di Meo delivers some stunning art in this issue. The characters look amazing and I love the style of the action. Everything has a sense of energy and movement, especially the fight scenes. Well done first issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Dec 4, 2019

    I'm not entirely sure where this idea came from, but I'm now entirely sold on it. Parrott's writing and Di Meo's art evoke the best shared elements of both universes and the resulting product is a fun jaunt that captures that one part of your brain that excitedly watched MMPR or TMNT every week, and I'm excited to experience the rest of the crossover.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 3, 2019

    This is the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles meet-up you have been looking for. No, this one never happened. MMPR/TMNT #1 feels like more than just fan-service or banking on nostalgia for sales. Ryan Parrott starts off what seems to be a very interesting story for the two teams, while Simone di Meo, Walter Baiamonte and Igor Monti deliver some delightfully dynamic art. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Dec 6, 2019

    Both the Power Rangers and the Turtles are no strangers to comic crossovers, but the teams rarely cross paths with each other. Ryan Parrott's writing and the strong artwork by di Meo, Baiamonte, and Monti provide justification that these teams should do more together. Parrott has crafted a narrative that is accessible to any lapsed 80's or 90's fan but fills the story with enough details for readers of either franchise to latch onto and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Dec 24, 2019

    All in all this is exactly what you want when you see a headline like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the front of a comic. The martial arts action is real, the competition is heated and there's mystery abound for the heroes to discover and solve. You'd be hard pressed to find anyway this crossover could have been kicked off any better! Read Full Review

    The last Power Rangers/TMNT crossover appeared in the mid-90s and was a catastrophe. It took over 20 years but we finally have a proper crossover between the two franchises.

    The plot isn't fully laid out in this issue but the pace is fast without being decompressed. The gist of the issue resolves around Tommy disappearing from the team and joining the Foot Clan. The reason behind Tommy joining the ninja clan seems sincere but I'm holding out hope that he's here on an undercover operation. Time will tell as Tommy Oliver has always been the most mercurial member of the Power Rangers.

    The books have a couple of things going for it. First of All, Simone di Meo has a really great take on the Turtles and joins Mateus Santo more

    As a first time Power Ranger and TMNT reader, I was blown away. The art was appealing as well as clean. The story flow nicely and the first interaction between both groups was nothing but just perfect. The plot seems iterating and has plenty of room to grow. It is making me wanna read some more Power Rangers and TMNT. Plus the covers are just beautiful.

    The plot is setup nicely and promises to go in an interesting direction. A lot of juggling is needed to handle this many characters but the creators are pulling it off thus far.
