    This book looks beautiful, reads well, and is a testament to the skill and effort Stan Sakai puts into everything he does. A true work of art from cover to cover, with heart and style that swells like a cinematic orchestra and cuts like the edge of a samurai's blade. Read Full Review

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Usagi Yojimbo: WhereWhen #1 is perhaps one of the most interesting crossovers I've read. It's not only a crossover that makes sense, but it's structured in a way that avoids the usual pitfalls and tropes. All in all, this is a great start to a story Usagi and TMNT fans alike will enjoy.

    Written and beautifully drawn by Stan Sakai, there's much to enjoy here for fans of both franchises, although the swap does make it seem like we won't get the Turtles and Usagi together for at least another issue. The Turtles, will have to deal with Usagi's distrustful friends, setting up a classic hero vs. hero misunderstanding, while the rabbit ronin will need to find his way back to the past.
